Like I said, I usually do a pretty good job of limiting myself but I do tend to get a little carried away at times. When I’m stressed out. Upset. Sad. Really pissed. Yea, times like that you will either find me shopping or eating crap. Why is it that when you are down in the dumps you always feel like eating the un-healthiest food imaginable?
Because this week has brought me a few of those extremely unpleasant days I decided to cheer myself up. Granted, it probably would have been safer to take a trip to Target and buy a few home furnishings or splurge on a few worthless items at Forever 21. But I suppose my depression had reached such a low that that wouldn’t cut it. So in the midst of my shopping spree I came away with two particular items that, while fabulous, probably should not have been purchased in the same day by a woman who has gone many months without a race that provided a paycheck. And since I am experiencing a bit of buyer’s remorse because of it, I decided that one of the items probably should go back. Please note that it is not possible to take both back because that would totally defeat the purpose of allowing my spirits to brighten through the acquisition of something I really wanted. And it is also my birthday in a couple of weeks so I am claiming an early birthday gift to myself. But I am having a hard time choosing so I will let you help me…
First is a great pair of True Religion jeans. I love the wash and I think they fit quite well. There is none of the crackage issues that can sometimes be a problem with True Religions. Yes, I have my fair share of designer jeans but we all know that you can never have too many good fitting jeans. btw...no, that is obviously not me in the picture. i would hope that my derriere looks a little better than this girls.
Next is a great Isabella Fiore purse. I have actually been wanting a new purse for a while and even though I was in the market for a new black one, this one happened to be a great deal and the color is still very neutral and great for spring.
Any other items that may have been purchased were inconsequential and probably would have been made regardless so I am not worried about that. And the 5000 calories I probably consumed that day have hopefully been burned off by now. Can you believe I ordered my own popcorn, candy, and Icee at the movies? An ICEE??? What is that, just a cup full of flavored sugar. I don’t remember the last time I had one of those. Not to mention that it makes going to the movies by yourself extremely pricey. Boy do I need a date.
Anyway, please help me decide which one of my lovely new purchases should be returned. Let’s not worry about which one costs more because I believe them both to be a good value.
