Another day, another outfit

dress: Old Navy
shoes: B.Makowsky
necklace: Collingnon Designs
belt: Gap
bag: LV

One of the stops on our Saturday shopping trip was Anthro. They actually had multiples of the dress I tried on earlier in the week, but I decided my closet is too small to have 2 almost identical dresses. Maybe if it goes through a second cut...

I rediscovered my love for putting photos on paper with glue, much thanks to shimelle, one of my scrapping idols. I spent the better part of my weekend doing this instead of going to the stores to save 8.25% with tax-free weekend. And my overstuffed closet thanks me for it.

What kind of things do you do to reduce your shopping/spending urge?

Great dress! I see you are participating in the Megan Mae/Casual Chic fashion challenge! Looking forward to seeing what you and all the others do!

To reduce my shopping/spending urge, I go grocery shopping. At least I will have something good to eat instead of a closet full of clothes that I don't need!

Adorable dress! Love the photospot too.

As for adding the badge to your sidebar, save the picture to your computer. Go to Design> Add a gadget > Add picture. Upload the picture, and there should be blanks to enter the link back to the link up post.

As for reducing shopping urge, I try to read, keep away from shop-oriented blogs. Try to stay off etsy, ebay and Polyvore, but use Pinterest if I want inspiration/eye candy.

I try to stay out of stores, for the most part. And Target, since it is too easy to grab cheap, cute clothes there.

I'm impressed with your willpower to keep from buying the Anthro dress and staying away from stores during tax-free weekend. Way to go!

I am having a hard time with the shopping urge. My mantra of the moment is "you can always just return it"

no good.

but this dress is a cute one, and of course you dont need another but really, if it gets a second cut...
