Happy Fat Tuesday, y'all! I wish I could indulge in some yummy feasting tonight, but unfortunately I have to work late. This is a quick post before I run off to work!
After my post about the Gelateria Blouse, I decided to use my Google-Fu and see if anymore of the Bespoke Shirtdress were secretly available on the Anthropologie site. There was an XS and a S left right after I made that post, guys! On sale, for 50% off. I ordered it right away as an early treat for myself with my tax refund. When I opened the box, the plastic bag the dress came in even said "Trovata shirtdress." And of course I couldn't help throwing one other goodie in the cart, which you'll see me wear very soon!
Also, this is my latest thrift score--a leather schoolboy satchel. I still have a Mulberry Alexa fund tucked away that I'm slowly adding to, but I'm trying to talk myself out of it because of the hefty price tag. Luckily, vintage and thrift options are plentiful. I came across this but originally had in mind more of a vintage Dooney and Burke or Coach kind of bag. But at less than 1/100th of the price of the real thing I'm lemming for, I couldn't really say no. It's all leather and is the perfect size for me.
While I'm out, I think I'll try once more to use my J. Crew gift cards before Lent. The Lenten season keeps me more motivated than other times to give something up. I'm going to tell myself no to shopping (well, atleast for clothes anyway, a girl needs to eat and stay groomed!) for 40 days. Are you giving anything up this year? How do you stay motivated?
