Shame.  Guilt.  Failure.

Lay it on me, I deserve it.

27 days in to my self-proclaimed “shopping ban“, I caved. It was a break-down in will power at the sign of the first sale. I didn’t even make it to Black Friday!

(Now since we’re being honest here, Black Friday only made it worse. Kinda like when you pig out for the holidays, and then you think … well how much harm can one more piece of pie do anyway?)

Ugh, but can you blame me?! This fur vest …….






I just … couldn’t … say … no.

So I said yes please, and added it to my closet … along with this shirt in red and leopard, and this coatWoops! :-)

No more slip ups allowed from now until Christmas! For real this time.

Dress: Francesca’s (similar cut)  //  Vest: Express  //  Boots: Vince Camuto (loving these)  //  Tights: Hue (other colors)  //  Necklace: Aldo (love this)  //  Bag: Michael Kors (similar)  //  Ring: family jeweler

    You are SO NYC! And look fabulous. So shop; why not? Why ban yourself in one of the fashion capitols of the world? YOLO. Which does not mean go crazy, but you don’t have to starve yourself, right? :)

    BTW; I am a boot addict. I was in Chicago on Tuesday and really splurged on a pair of amazingly awesome Stuart Weitzman boots. I am having a hard time…well, maybe not THAT hard a time… justifying this purchase. Until I put them on. Done. LOVE them. :) :) :)

      Thanks Mrs. Mascitti!! You’re so right. Everything is okay in moderation. Depriving myself has been really hard – especially surrounded by so much great fashion! Also – I bet those Stuart Weitzman boots are amazing….you shouldn’t have an ounce of buyer’s remorse!!! :-) hope to see you around the holidays!
