working wardrobe | the brighter, the better

11.30.12
top&shoes: Anthro / cardi: Jonathan Sanders for Target / pants: Gap / sunnies: Dsquared
I go through phases where I am very good and don't shop for months at a time.

And when I buy, I try to buy things I love and will wear over and over again.

top: Ann Taylor / pants: Gap / shoes: BOC / sunnies: Dsquared / jewelery: gift'd
But the last few weeks has seen a sharp increase in my spending and acquiring - like both the red and pink pair of cropped pants bought on sale. I love their fit, comfort and color so couldn't resist. I may have gotten other packages from Loft and Anthro as well; couldn't resist the call of Cyber Monday. I have made a promise not to spend any more $$ on myself in December (or at least until the after Christmas sales!).

I do like having evidence that I wear the clothes I own :)

Loving your red and black! Such a classic color combo that always works. That's a fabulous cardigan too!

I like that coat! It does get hard to resist the sales this time of year, since there are so many of them.

Love that black and red cardigan! It's very futuristic.

I'm agreeing with you - November was a very shop heavy month for me. I haven't actually bought anything since December started, but I may make a small purchase from Wendy Brandes and call it quits as 2013 starts.

That red/black sweater is a statement piece - you look great in it!
