'What's Gone and What's Past Help'

As I confessed earlier, I have failed miserably at my New Year's resolution of not spending.  Riddled with guilt, I decided then to amend my first idea, and give myself a certain budget within the month to spend on clothes.  That has since gone out the window (especially since I have used up July's budget).  Maybe next year.  What can I say, I am past help.
Anyhoo, as a slight pat on my shoulder, nothing in this post is new (except for the thigh highs but those were only 7 bucks and that really doesn't count).  I've had the dress, coat, and boots for a couple of years so at least I do keep the things I buy and get good mileage out of my money, right.  Points scored.


How are you guys coming along with your new year's resolutions??

  1. this dress is beautiful. I love your photos..those last few in the snow are amazing. Girl my budget is spent! I failed at saving..I have been spending like an idiot. But I have however stopped using my credit card (for the past 2 months) so thats good right?? Oh the things we tell ourselves lol

  12. You definitely get points for this outfit and not spending anything on it! The thigh highs were a much needed and economical purchase, you're right, that doesn't count ;) haha! I love how we are on the same wavelength as far as posting thigh high warmers right now ;)
