My New Year's Resolution - A Failure?

2/24/2014 / Leave a Comment

I decided at the end of last year that I needed to take a break from shopping. I had spent a lot of time (and money) building up my wardrobe over the past few years. Since I have a full time job this year (finally!!) I want to get back to the responsible me that knows how to save.

For my resolution, I set out to not shop for 3 months, and I made it 1 month and 24 days.

And then I saw this dress:
It was at ideeli (I do so adore that site!) and I wanted it. Seriously. Like insanely bad. I already have one Evan Picone dress that I am smitten with:
It has been the perfect dress this winter, especially with tights, boots and this jacket:
Not too mention, I had a store credit, so I got a great deal on it!

I must admit that I have enjoyed not shopping - and it has not been as hard as I thought. I have gotten a chance to dig out some clothes that I really love, and toss some of the ones that I am not so fond of.

I do not think it was a complete failure as far as resolutions go. I am still not planning on doing much shopping. I haven't even used my Macy's gift card from Christmas!! But a bargain on a fabulous dress like this one is just too difficult for me to pass up!

Have you found any deals you just could not resist lately? Let me know in the comments below?
