No Such Thing as Free

The devil made me do it. Ok, maybe not, but I did just drop a hefty chunk of change over the past couple of days on new duds. I went shopping for a pair of high-waisted shorts, like the pair below, and ended up with a high-waisted skirt, tie-dyed racerback tank, hot pink and grey mini dress, and grey hoodie from Urban Outfitters. Pics to come over the weekend.

There is also a free international shipping and an ongoing sale until the end of June at my fave online store, ShopBop. So my fingers did the walking and I ended up with some damage on the credit card: a black mini skirt from LaRok, a Marc by Marc Jacobs cashmere cardigan sweater, and finally, a pair of Elizabeth and James cream pumps.

in the meantime, still no high-waisted shorts...should I bite the bullet and buy these custom-made shorties in red?

it's probably a good thing that i've put in a shopping ban when shopbop's free shipping sale is in effect!

you should go for the custom shorts! you'd probably end up paying almost as much for shorts that won't fit nearly as well.
