Oh to have you in my life ............


Seriously in love with this blazer right now! Unfortunately as of today, I have put myself on a spending ban. No more clothes and no more shoes! Until the end of the year. GASP! I figure if I tell you guys, then I may actually stick to it. Worst time of the year to impose this stupid ban, but a large majority of my clothes have been unworn or still have the price tag on. I'm being sensible kirsty! After clearing through this mess (see here) I have come to terms with the fact that I would probably never need to go shopping again, with the amount of clothing I own. Counted 40 pairs of jeans, when I only wear 2 pairs of them (examples here and here). So their you have it - end of all my fun - but don't worry lots of clothes for you to see. Keep me in check girlies!

Hugs & Kisses

No, not yet. I went to H&M on Saturday, but this promotion 'Lanvin' will be in stores on Thursday, and then I'll be in school. :( xx

Emilie said...

Love this blazer!

Marta on cocogroove said...

This blazer is stunning...as for shopping bad habits, what I always try to do is to really buy what I really really but do really want and think will make a great piece in my wardrobe. Sounds kind of silly but it actually works :D

Jessica said...

That blazer's lovely; I hope you keep to your spending ban, you'll be glad you did it when you've got lots to spend on the sales in Jan :)
The link to your wardrobe post has made me wanna clear mine out now, one way to keep from doing work :')

I love a good blazer- just gotten a cream one like that from River Island. I'm on a shopping ban until boxing day (well except a dress I've seen in topshop). GET THE BLAZER haha xxx

The doll on fashion said...

I spotted this yesterday and fell in love too - sadly no money for me either!

Lourdes said...

Love the outfit. Don't feel bad about the ban. I know it must suck, but, as they say: this too shall pass. Why not just put some of your clothes in a bag and pretend like you went shopping? There's retail therapy for you. lol.

The Beauty of Butterflies said...

It is true haha, I often buy me things I do not need, but it's crazy and can not help haha, so I agree. KISSES!

Ilse said...

Loes said...

thanks a lot :D

and indeed, I think I don't even wear halve of all the clothes I got haha. Maybe if you give yourself a spending-ban till the end of the year, you'll spend double next year.. ;p

Catarina said...

Wow, I salute you for being so brave! I definately could not put myself on a spending ban, although I know I really should...Next year hopefully :) It will be one of my resolutions!

wow that blazer is just wow! black and brown never looked that good..
oh, so no more spending for now? eeeek, good luck on that dear. :)

Leisha said...

Okay, so I am kinda in the same boat. Shop too much... wear too little. I figure I will be selfless this holiday season, but dang... it's so hard!
Cheers~

Amaris said...

Yes, life would be horrible without heaters! Haha. The blazer in your post looks so cute! I am on the search for a good one that will last me a long time. I am also on a shopping ban ... no shopping until I finish this semester! So that means no black friday shopping for me :o

Emma said...

Hmm I really should be following your lead but with the sales kicking off on this side of the Atlantic it's impossible ;) Emma x

Alexandra said...

Absolutely LOVE it! I'm trying to be good till Christmas is over too but it's way too hard haha.
