SplurgeFest

Sunday, September 22, 2013

Hi all! Hope you all had a very enjoyable weekend. Mine was kind of ho hum. I went out Saturday night wearing the cutest dress and didn't take pics! What is wrong with me? But I did have Chinese food AND sushi so the weekend was still good in my eyes. Just not a lot of material for blogging (I thought I said I would change that? Oops!)
This is the first time I've managed to get around to writing a Splurgy Sunday entry, mostly because I don't lust after many high end items. I mean, I do "sometimes" but only if there is some hope of me ending up with it someday (like, if it goes 70% off, that it will end up in my price range.) Why desire things you can't have? You'll only be torturing yourself!

I would love to have any of these items! They are so beautiful. I'm already planning my next big purchase. It's this dress by Lauren Moffatt. I missed it during the Last Hurrah sale but was lucky enough to find it on an online swap group for sale. Unluckily for me, it was a size 2. I'm purchasing it anyways because I love it so much. I have a bad habit of buying items that aren't my size just because I love so them so much. The larger ones can be altered down of course, but the smaller ones look a little sausage-y. I'm not sure how that's going to go with the tummy cut out, but I'm gonna wing it!

In other splurgy news, I got my haul from the States. I'm super happy with everything! Although alarmingly, a pair of shoes and a dress were missing from the bunch. OH NOES! They were both from ebay sellers so I'm still trying to track them down at the moment. But here are the rest of my scores. I thought about doing super detail shots, but then I'd be giving spoilers for upcoming blogs, hehe.

*note, the cute dress I wore on Saturday night was the white one in front. How sweet right???

I was at my parent's house to get this stuff (was actually at their house all week in anticipation of it's arrival) and bringing it back home was a nightmare! Especially because we had decided to do a little grocery shopping at the same time. On a NORMAL day, I bring a lot of stuff back and forth to my parent's house. I took a picture last week of the trunk of my mom's car of items being shuttled back to my house. You'd think I was moving each time!

That's all for me for now! Talk soon!
