I suck. I completely suck donkey ass.
I was doing so well! 6 weeks in and not a thing bought! GAHHHHHH, I am a truly sick individual.
You see, I had an out in this whole No Shopping Adventure. In my possession was a J. Crew gift card from Christmas that I was hoarding for the perfect opportunity. A pinch hitter, if you will. When times got tough and I was jonesing for something new, I could pull that bad boy out and hit the racks.
I knew exactly what I was going to buy today. This cardigan.
(On sale for $34.99!)
You know, the cardigan wasn’t really doing much for me on the website. Gray, ruffles, tissue tee material…it’s okay. I noticed it went on sale this week, so Wito and I took a little trip to J. Crew this morning. I tried it on and well, the clouds parted and I saw the light. It’s so cute and chic and perfect for my daily life. I had about $50 left on the card – I was just going to purchase it and run.
Until I saw the exact same cardigan in the most lovely shade of pink. NOT the shade shown on the website, but a deeper, lovelier, PERFECT PINK THAT I JUST HAD TO HAVE. DAMMIT!
Then, Jay (the greatest J. Crew associate ever – damn you, Jay!) brought this top to the dressing room.
Also, on sale! In slub cotton! I WANT TO GO ALL THE WAY WITH SLUB COTTON.
I spent 50 dollars over the amount of the gift card.
Did I mention that I’m a huge failure who sucks donkey ass?
The shirts are still in the bag. I think I might take a couple of them back. I can’t believe I actually feel this crappy about breaking my no shopping mandate. What is happening to meeeeeeeee?
What would you do? Say screw it or take two of the items back?
