I would go out tonight, but I haven't got a stich to wear



I need to go shopping. I am quickly running out of clothes that fit me. It is so sad. Unfortunately, I can't go shopping until after the holidays, because I'm low on funds. But hopefully once January comes around, I will have enough saved up to hit up Forever 21 or something. That would be nice.

In the meantime, here are some of the outfits I wore in the past week.

Photobucket
Blazer, Target; shirt, Ann Taylor; skirt, Ralph Lauren; shoes, Gap



Photobucket
Sweater, Burberry; skirt, Etro; shoes, Steve Madden; necklace, from a craft fair



Photobucket
Dress, Gap; tights, K-Mart; shoes, Gap; necklace, Tarina Tarantino (courtesy of the Chickdowntown giveaway hosted by Take Me Out to the Runway)

Anyway, I hope everyone had a great weekend. I had to work all day on Sunday and it was exhausting. But I managed to sneak a few fun things in as well. I had a girls night in with a couple friends, attended a Christmas party, and then got to spend some quality time with Rian, which is always nice.

Have a wonderful week!

Hi Jennifer! The good thing with the shopping ban is you tend to be creative in your outfits. Just today, I raided my boys' closet to find something to wear and I came up with something and I still have more items to experiment with. Raid your BF's closet, it's the in thing to do with the recession and all.

You look so adorable in your last outfit! I die! :)

Also, I am trying to enforce a shopping ban myself, but it's going so-so. Oh well!

Keith said...

You look great. Have fun with the shopping after the New Year rolls in. Sorry you had to work on Sunday. It still sounds like you had a nice weekend. Have a great week. Cheers!

Love the bright pink tights! I'm on a shopping ban right now, too. But with the holidays coming up, it's going to be HARD!

great outfits!

Leia said...

You are so pretty! I love your last outfit best (but maybe that's because you've got a huge smile on in the pic?) Shopping bans can be so hard :(

Cafe Fashionista said...

It's such a pain when you don't have funds to go shopping - especially during the holidays. But January is such a huge time for sales, so you are destined to find amazing stuff then. In the meantime, you totally look adorable in this past week's outfits - those pink neon tights are fab!! :)

Hi Sweet Friend!

You are so gorgeous and I love your outfits! Your tights are amazing!!

Just so you know you're not alone...I'd have so many clothes if I'd lose this ample ass of mine...sigh!

Love and hugs,
Karyn

MissNeira said...

Love those flats in the first picture! and the pink tights!

Barry said...

Leah's right, the good thing with the shopping ban is you tend to be creative in your outfits. Why, just last night I raided Sandy's closet and.....uh, never mind.

:)

Damn girl, those tights should have come with their own warning label! They're so bright my corneas are having trouble focusing. But nice outfits, and might I say it's always great to see that smile.

By the way does Steve Madden know you're wearing his shoes? WTF.

If I could ask for anything from you for Christmas it would be another e-mail. Miss them, but I know you're crazy busy.

Keep smiling Jen, and thanks for all your great comments. If I do write a book about my life you'll get your own chapter.

Ela said...

I just love your ruffled blouse and also your skirt! And I always love your purdy, purdy hair :) I've been trying to cut down on shopping - in some ways I have, in others ways I've been terrible. I always shop when I'm stressed or bothered though so I need to work on that...
Happy Monday, hon!

Tights Lover said...

All great outfits, especially the top one. I really like the pink tights too!! And who doesn't like a good Morrisey quote!

dapper kid said...

Loving your blouse in that first outfit and the colour combination in the last is wonderful. I linked you in my sidebaaaar :) Hope you're having a lovely day.

English Rose ♥ said...

i love the last outfit

your bank balance shall thank you for it and it will definitely force you to be more creative and come up with new ideas for old outfits

do you guys have january sales? In the UK all the shops have sales to get rid of leftover stock so everyone saves up their christmas money for that

make sure you post your new years f21 purchases!


Stay safe and chic darling

I've been on a shopping ban for well over a month and I have yet to buy one thing. I forced myself to not buy anything until I lose the 13 pounds I gained over the summer. I then expanded the ban into no eating out except once a week. I named it the "I deserve no rewards" ban!!

Your last outfit is sosososososo cute!!!

Gerri Ward said...

WOW! YOU look GORGEOUS! I luv all of your outfits they're solely CHIC FABULOUS!:))
P.S. I hope you had a FAB weekend!

Hey girlfriend! I understand your frustration. I was there. But you're doing great with your creativity. I know it's difficult, but don't forget ... if you want things to change ... you have to change your habits.

Screams! I love your bright tights!!!! You're a legend girl twirl! You have a fantastic selection of outfits, I love your high neck shirt! And what Leah said, it's perfect being on a shopping ban, you just get so creative! My dirty habit is Thrifting, I love finding vintage finds in Charity Shops, they've lasted the last twenty years, so surely they can last another twenty! That's my attitude.

Have a fab week xoxo

The Haute-Shopper said...

Love all your outfits! That Burberry skirt is terrific and I adore those bright tights! I'll probably only shop (for myself at least) after the holidays, because sales only start in January over here. No point spending cash on stuff that will be discounted 3 weeks from now. Hope you're having a fabulous week!

Rachel said...

You look absolutely fabulous! I'm loving all of your necklaces and those pink tights!
