Shopping Spreeeeeeee!

Been doing quite a bit of digi-scrapping lately using all my fabulous new goodies from the JS Creative Team.  Oh the designers' work just makes me drool.  There's some serious cuteness over there.  Here are a few of my recent layouts using products from the shop...

Now, speaking of cuteness, I went on a shopping spree this weekend and picked up some super cute things.  And when I say "shopping spree," I for reals mean I went on a seriously full-blown spree.

I usually buy one or two random things here and there while casually perusing the mall, but this weekend...oh this weekend it was a legit shopping spree.  It was amazing.

Here's the background to justify my spree:  Basically, I have cleaned out my wardrobe to the point that getting ready for work and weekend play is a painful task and makes me (and my boyfriend) want to pull my hair out.  The BF seriously has wanted to smother me with a pillow.  I can't wear heels right now so I am forced to wear flat shoes of which I own one pair and one pair only; my pants are altered for heels so they look ridiculous with that one invaluable pair of flats; I have a few dresses but they need some sort of sandal and sweater to look somewhat decent, both of which I do not own, and a slip of some kind is beyond necessary for them to be work appropriate; I have no tee shirts or casual tops to just throw on and go; shorts or capris for the summer?  Nope.  I have none of those...oh I could go on and on...it's a mess really.  Just random articles of clothing with no outfits to belong to...good times.

Well, thank goodness the BF has incredible fashion sense and felt the need to step in and regulate.  And regulate he did!  He called Nordstrom and set up an appointment for me to meet with a stylist who would help me shop.  I had no idea you could do that!  It's heavenly.  Basically, I met with a gal who did all the shopping for me!  I sat in the dressing room while the little fashion guru brought me all sorts of cute pants, shirts, sweaters, dresses, and even shoes for me to try on.  It was SO fun...like seriously SO fun.

Two hours later I was handing over my credit card and walking out the door with several bags of cuteness.*  We won't discuss the damage done to my credit card...in fact I didn't even look.  Ha!  Ya know, I think there's nothing wrong with pretending you're a Kardashian once in your life and having a little fashion fun.

I'd never done that before.

I was on a retail high for hours and hours and hours.

It was amazing.

Here's a shot of one of the pairs of shoes I purchased:

*Note: I will most likely return everything I purchased later this week.

Your last note made me laugh, Sara! I hope you don't return everything. But even if you do, you got a little spoiling in, which you definitely deserve. My next splurge is to go for a real bra-fitting, which I've never done and definitely need. I don't think they even make bras for people as flat chested as I am. We'll see...

No! Don't return everything! You've worked hard for it - enjoy it. Besides, it sounds like you really need it.
