//Blazer: dotti// dress: tightrope // shoes: kmart // bag: chinatown markets // ring : gorham house markets //

Last week I tried to enforce a shopping ban for the next four weeks. This dress however managed to slip through the cracks. It was only $12 and will be perfect for my trip to America because of the non-crush material....yeah I can justify anything, needless to say the ban is over and I am back to my old tricks. Do I get points for trying? Probably not.
Today I came home with grandeous plans of cleaning and catching up on lots of odd jobs but the motivation seems to have passed and I am ready to curl up with one of my new books and relax for the rest of the night, there is always tomorrow.

  8. What a cute dress! Totally worth breaking your shopping ban. :) I was just thinking this morning how I think it's so cute how you say "America." :) We always say "U.S." around here, but "America" is way cuter!
