Confession: I bought something new.

Today, I indulged a bit. I bought three new things!

It started with the discovery of this blog. It was love at first sight. Then, as I perused her older posts, I found this one. Seriously? A beautiful J. Crew look-alike for $20?

I then spent a little time on the Kohl's site. I've never been a huge fan of Kohl's, mostly because there isn't one close, and (hello) I'd mostly rather thrift. But, nevertheless, I checked out their clearance. I found these opaque tights in dark green and fuchsia-purple for only $4 each! I googled around and found a 15% off coupon code, and swooped up the cardi and tights, after bugging poor A about it all day.

I had some other items on my shopping list that I did not end up getting. For some reason, A thinks I have way too many shoes. I don't know where he got that idea...

I wanted these green rain boots, but opted out in the end.***
I also had these cute little tuxedo shoes in my cart for a bit, despite the fact that they are Sketchers brand, which I despise. They are only $10! I would break my no Sketchers rule for $10. They don't even have my size anymore, so it must not have been meant to be.

***I bought some cute boots at Forever Young Shoes around Thanksgiving last year. They are black and sort of slouchy, fake leather, and were only about $40. After just one season, the fake leather is totally peeling up, and they look terrible! That is what I get for trying to go cheap. I have also been eying Hunter Wellies online for about 5 months now. The wellies at Kohls are cute, and cheap, but I'm worried that I'll have another bad experience buying cheap shoes as a way to save money. More shoe buying of less-expensive shoes is not necessarily cheaper than just going with the nice expensive shoes in the first place. Lesson learned. Now, if I can just convince A...

Thanks for linking to me. I am glad that you like the blog.

And that cardigan has dropped $6 since I posted on it. I am glad you jumped on it. Hopefully, you love it when it comes.
