Now that I'm quite serious about my resolutions (haven't walked into a clothing store for almost 2 weeks), I pass my time doing school work, working on a utilitarian-cum-academic project outside of school, and doing some electronic window shopping. If I were to buy anything, they would be truly practical things (namely a comfortable low-wedge shoe for lots of walking and a warm short jacket when coats are not practical--dang near froze the other night when I went out in a denim jacket!). Alas, the cuteness of so many things on sale makes it hard to resist. Good thing they're so expensive such that I can't afford them!
Fortunately, I can still indulge in my want of frivolous accessories without spending money of my own. My brother got me a gift certificate from Fred Flare, which is awesome, but now I have to watch out and not spend more than the gift certificate amount. Since I want to make the most of the gift certificate, the first section I headed to was the sale section. A few things are cute (like the stripey mittens and bling safety pin), but overall the selection isn't too appealing to me.
I normally wouldn't pay full price, but the only items that I really want to get aren't on sale yet. Hopefully they won't sell out while I wait:
The $24 mini dachshund clutch is simply adorable. Love that little dog zipper handle!
This heart necklace/watch reminds me of the Marc Jacobs fruit watches. I thought about buying this, but then again, it's a bit silly even for me. Not worth my $20.
Fred Flare's got this thing going on with hearts--I'm guessing it has to do with the upcoming Valentine's Day. I really want this duffle, also $24. Not that I actually need another bag, but the shape of the bag is rather practical, as I don't have a small duffle. I'm a geek at heart (to give you an idea of just how nerdy I am: the other night I hung out with a couple of people and we spent time talking dot product, cross product, and angular momentum), so pixelated hearts are perfect.
Unfortunately I don't have the money to buy them all. Picking and choosing is so hard to do. Maybe I can nab all of them on sale in the near future.
