as i wrote about in my resolutions post, i have put myself on a monthly $200 fashion/beauty budget.
and already something very interesting is happening. i am finding that since i know i only have so much to work with, that my whole shopping thought process is changing.
normally when i shop, it's usually all about if i love something. a very emotional thing.
now with the budget strings attached, in addition to loving something, i am also asking myself some new questions.
how will it fit into my life right now?
will i get a lot of good use out of it?
do i already own similar items?
how many ways will i rock it with what i already own?
and the answer has to be right otherwise i am passing it up, even if it's something i think is crazy cute AND pretty affordable, like this necklace
if it doesn't fit the new criteria, no can buy...i am shocking myself...LOL
anyway, to start off, i purchased these little booties
they have a msrp of $120 but i got them for $20.12 + free shipping.
can't wait to rock them.
