Wednesday, July 13

I did something dumb.

I made a pact with boyfriend that I wouldn't shop for the rest of the month of July.  This was dumb for multiple reasons. First being that I said this on July 10.  That still leaves 2/3rds of the month! Secondly it's my birthday month.  I should shop as much as I want during birthday month.

Please don't get mad at him.  I am the one who emphatically created and agreed to this.  I'm hoping I get lots of birthday presents to make up for it!  So for the rest of the month, I will be window shopping and sulking considering my wardrobe pieces carefully.  My latest obsession: SWIMSUITS! Now, I live in Brooklyn.  There aren't many decently clean public pools or beaches to strut my stuff.  Even if there were, I don't really have the time for it.  This is a lifelong problem, but I seem to constantly buy the suckers, even in winter.  Below you'll find my new objects of desire:

Lanvin Python Print Bikini
Karla Colletto Halterneck One-piece
Mara Hoffman Embroidered Balconette Bikini
Lisa Marie Fernandez One-piece
I really want the last one for two reasons.

1. It's made out of neoprene, which reminds me of scuba diving. Le sigh...
2. It's very 90s and sexy, with everything still be covered and appropriate.

What's your guilty pleasure?


  1. Shoes, always shoes! I would buy all the shoes in the world:)


  2. No shopping on your birthday month? Whew. Good luck!

    Ask the Duplex

  3. To my defense, I already have purchased a new purse, 3 new skirts, 5 skirts, unmentionables, and a super surprise present for myself (that was a pretty penny!)

  4. I have so many - the comment box is not big enough but i def seem to go to the shoes too often! I make pacts with my man all the time - i usually break them - so wishing you all the luck and well done if you do it!! x

  5. I'm so mad at him! Just do it anyway and when he asks if something's new pull the old "oh, this old thing?" haha
