I have learned to somewhat control my addiction by simply not going shopping. The mere exposure to malls & boutiques proves to be too much for my self control to fight & I end up wanting everything I see.
This is why the holiday season is especially hard for me. Sending me into a mall is like sending a caged animal into the wild. It seems as though every present I buy for someone else, I also buy something for myself. But, come on...the sales right now are ridiculous! Though I knocked 4 people off my Christmas list this weekend, I also ended up with 2 new pairs of shoes, a winter coat, a bathing suit, jeggings, a scarf, & some new jewellery. I clearly have a problem.
The first pair of shoes were only $35 at Aldo and will look adorable with thin socks or with dresses in the Spring.
The second pair looks JUST like these from Free People that I'd been ogling since August. I have been wanting OTK boots for a very long time and I found these chocolate brown beauties at Winners for half the price of the FP ones. I am considering returning them though because I feel like I don't know what to wear with chocolate brown? Most things I own are black and I just have this thing about black and brown together.
I'm supposed to be going to Metrotown tomorrow evening to help a friend do some Christmas shopping. Lord help us all.
