My Wallet Is In Trouble

OH YALL. I am having one of those moments where I want to buy EVERYTHING I SEE.

I open a catalogue and I’m barely on the fourth page before I am obsessed with an item. I read a blog featuring a new product and I’m feverishly clicking through before I even know what I’m doing. I follow someone’s link on Twitter and I catch myself adding stuff to my cart online.

I love everything! I feel like all the stores and retailers were waiting until the new year to unveil all their gorgeous things. The problem is, they all did it at the exact same time… and if I get everything I want, my bank account is going to have a serious problem.

Maybe if I write a post about it, I’ll fight the urge to actually own it all? Sort of like a blogger retail therapy? Highly doubtful, but worth a shot. Without further ado, everything I’m currently loving/needing/obsessing over!


Cashmere. Hot pink. Stripes. There was no way I wasn’t going to love this sweater. In fact, part of me thinks J.Crew made it just for me! The aqua/emerald combo is nice, but I looooove this pink one! ($198)


All I can say about these shoes? Holy shit. I’m sure some of you are wincing right about now – too bright, too many stripes, not your style, too expensive – but I think these Jimmy Choos are fantastic. I love how they showed the model wearing them with a super simple outfit – I’d do the same! I think they’d look great with some skinny jeans and a plain tank. I’ll own these in my dreams! ($1095… YIKES.)


I cannot tell a lie – this sweater intrigued me so much I went to Old Navy at lunch last week and bought it! I wore it out for fancy date night this weekend and I’m officially obsessed. It’s the perfect piece to dress down with leggings and a tank or dress up with black pants and heels. Thanks to MMC for first blogging about it! (On sale - just $40!)


In between shrieking when I first laid eyes on this Tolani scarf and blogging about it, I think it sold out – which is a good thing, because I probably would have eventually bought it. My wallet is breathing a sigh of relief. As a lifelong lover of color, I think it is just the most beautiful thing!


Rachel Zoe featured this bag yesterday in The Zoe Report and you better believe I went scrambling over the internet to find it! (See, I TOLD you I was vulnerable to the power of suggestion!) It’s available at Anthropologie, which makes it a possible real-life purchase – I have a massive gift card there and this Mara Hoffman beauty is screaming my name! ($238)


Never mind the fact that I haven’t worn a headband (other than to hold back my hair while I wash my face at night) since the seventh grade. How cool is this Eugenia Kim headband? I couldn’t pull it off, but I think my sister could :) ($99)


I just bought this dress the other day for an upcoming event, and I loved it so much I went online to look at other dresses by Suzi Chin. That’s where I found this one – isn’t it so pretty and summery? I love the shape and the stripes! ($158)


Speaking of stripes, look at this sassy little number. It’s from Banana Republic, of all places! It’s so classic – I would wear it with a great pair of red heels or a statement necklace to zhush it up! ($98)

See! What did I tell you? I have a bad case of the WANTS. The last time this happened I had to institute a ban on all purchases – who remembers NO SHOPPING MAY? No one, least of all me, wants that again – so here’s hoping I continue to resist!

I love that dress and the sweater. Everything else is a little too loud for me.
