When I stumbled upon this shimmery, frosty gray shirt at J.Crew with its jangling sequins that sounded almost like chain mail, I immediately thought mithril. Now, this fun top may not be harder than dragon's scales, and after getting it on sale (with an additional percentage off), it's definitely not worth more than the whole of the Shire, but guys, let's not get hung up on details.
matte sequin cami, j.crew
toothpick zipper jeans, j.crew [x-ish]
jacket, diane von furstenberg
monocle necklace, gift
Don't worry, Kim, I got this shirt a few weekends before we all committed to our shopping ban! Speaking of the shopping ban, I'm so proud of everyone who's participating. I'm staying strong despite feeling particularly clicky after seeing some new Gilt and Rue La La sales, but I'm resisting. Whew! The only thing that I freely admit to shopping for during this ban is a new swim suit, but I don't feel it violates the rules too much since it's something I need and not something I'm buying to pad my closet.
I'm glad to be on this shopping ban, despite the temptations. I need to learn to save more and spend less with each paycheck! Especially since I'm saving up for an especially big vacation next year to The Land Down Under...
