Gimme! Gimme!

So I know that the economy is in the crapper and blah blah blah, but I still want STUFF! I can’t stop buying shtuff either. Last week when I was in my funk I bought at least five cd’s – I just couldn’t stop myself. Once again, I have no self control. None. Nada. Zilch. Also why I haven’t worked out in a week and why I ate a bag of popcorn the other night and have had too many donuts to count. They’re my weakness! Don’t judge. I am trying to control my constant urge to shop though due to the fact that who knows where we'll be in a year or so. Given that I work for a company that isn’t exactly recession proof I have decided to just drool over the following items as opposed to buying them. However, considering my lack of control I might just own them by next week. Who knows?!

This green Priorities jacket - I luurrvve the Peter Pan collar:

These gray booties from DSW - I've been dying for a good pair of booties:
This scarf from PrettyRaccoons shop at Etsy - you can never have too many scarves:



And, finally, I want this picture from Matteart at Etsy - I don't know where I'd hang it, but I'd find a place, don't you worry:

Is it bad that I have been shopping still? I feel like I'm doing my part to help the economy that way...

Jessica said...

I love those shoes, and I am still shopping anyway..even though I'm slowly running out of money! oops...

SS+1 said...

Those shoes are ADORABLE! I must resist going straight to DSW for the sake of my credit card balance!

Megkathleen said...

Stealthnerd - No, like I said most likely I'll be back into shopping mode next week.

Jessica - Hey, you're helping the economy!!

ss+1 - I know, DSW is dangerous.

she looks weird

Heather said...

Love all of that stuff. Bad bad bad. I now feel like I have to shop some more. Oh well, I am boosting the economy by spending.

Bayjb said...

Yes I do want that jacket and those boots. Two please, size L and 9.5. I know, I still really want to shop too but I have to cut back since things are gettin' more expensive in the city.

Jamie said...

Love everything. You have fantastic taste!

Matt said...

That model...in the picture...

may be the ugliest model ever.

in the history of models.

Kristen said...

I love it all too! When you buy it all, make it two and mail it to me.

You're a peach!

Megkathleen said...

rs27 - I know. Very disturbing. It almost makes me hate the scarf, but not quite.

Heather - Yes! Go shopping and post pictures so I can live vicariously through you!

Bayjb - I know and with Christmas coming up I just keep thinking about all the presents I need to get.

Jamie - Thanks! Really I get most of my etsy tips from you - you've never steered me wrong.

Matt - Don't worry, the scarf would look waaayyy cuter on me.

Kristen - Of course! Just remember next time you get an adorable pair of shoes to send some my way as well.

Kate said...

I can't remember the last time I went on a shopping spree. Lucky girl!

Dingo said...

I love the scarf and the boots. I might just wear them by themselves -- with maybe some strategically placed art.

I love that scarf ...I think I just saw it the other day on etsy ...ugh, I'm wanting to buy everything right now...everything!

surviving myself said...

I have the same attitude as you. I want stuff still!

Jay said...

I'd have to agree with Matt. That model makes me want to choke her with the scarf.
