Does this work?

I am so in love with this scarf which I snagged for $5 at one of the sales. But I don't know how to wear it or what to wear it with. Today I paired it with a textured acid yellow sweater and jeans. Thoughts?

I have been obsessing on this coat since I first saw it in the fall magazines. Sadly the price plus my size problems took it off the table.

BUT all is not lost. I found this cute replacement for $29! Also check out the GORGEOUS necklace my BFF got me for my birthday. Somehow she always manages to find things that I adore and yet are unlike things I already have. Genius.

Bad habits die hard

The one upside of dieting is shopping. I get to shop because I have to. Because I have 6 or more sizes to lose I can also get some great bargains since I know I'll fit into these items at some point.

So I spent the weekend with a $150 store credit at Amazon (my Bing cashback from the crazy Endless sales this summer) buying a ton of cute stuff. I looked for items with a 70%+ discount and scored some neat things. I will not fit into most of it for a few more months but it was a lot of fun.

Of course one binge triggers more and I have been sitting on my hands all day to avoid looking for more bargains.

One of my goals when I started stuff fast was to avoid the quantity over quality trap. And I still want to. But it is hard!

So as I wear through all my new purchases I am going to take note of what I like, what I hate, and what items I need to rebuy when I get to my final destination.
