recent purchases

& not-so-recent ones but never worn because they've been buried under piles of shopping bags


When it comes to shopping, I'd like to think that I've more self-control now compared to when I was still in college. I don't work full time yet, and I don't get regular allowance from my dad anymore, so I can't be as impulsive as I used to be. I still do get a little overboard every once in a while, except now I've set a time frame for when I should shop and a limit of how much I should spend. I also make sure that I prioritize my wardrobe needs and not my wants, and I try to invest on key pieces rather than go for what's hot. Doesn't always go as planned though. Especially when I see the word SALE.

  9. Seeing a SALE almost always immediately turns me into my former SALE ADDICT. But how could you not be, especially when you find a gorgeous thrifted floral dress like that?! I LOVE it!

    Great post! I'll definitely look for you on lookbook.
