Shopping Spree

Suphamommy and Mommybrain(see their links over in my scrolly thingy) want to know what you'd buy if you could go on a clothing shopping spree.

I love how this fits right in with the way I've been thinking lately.

I want to attempt to be more put together and not always look like such a frump. But, it's hard to change your way of thinking. I had a giftcard for gap a few weeks ago and while my intention was to buy something a little more fashionable, I zoomed right in on the sweats, trying to justify that they were "nice" sweats.

I did come to my senses and buy a cute tailored khaki jacket instead.

But, that's just a start. No more gift cards lying around for me to use. But, today, I get to pretend.

I still want to be comfortable, but a tad more put together would be nice.

So, here's what I would buy:

1. True Religion jeans. I've tried these on before and they worship my body- I guess that's where the religion part comes in. I look thinner in them, but still curvy. I look like I've never gone through chilbirth, let alone 3 times. I'll take the breast cancer awareness ones they put out last month- a good cause and all the detailing is pink. Let's just call this item "pants" and lump in a pair of their khakis and cords, too.

2. A cute jean jacket- one that fits really well and looks great with khakis. Maybe we'll just stick with TR brand, but as long as it looks good, I don't care.

3.Stretchy V-neck t-shirts. The type that have that dip in at the waist. In a variety of colors- and yes, I'm counting this as one item. If you saw how woefully inadequate my wardrobe is, you'd understand.
4. Some sort of shoes that are both comfy and stylish. The last time I spent any real sort of money on shoes was 9 years ago, when I bought a pair of doc marten mary janes- that I still wear. So, I have no idea what is out there. Can I get a personal shopper to come along with me? And a matching belt and purse, too.

5. Lastly: I have totally been taken in by the ads for the new V's Secret bra that promises to add 2 extra cup sizes.

If any of us hit the lottery anytime soon, let's celebrate by going on a shopping spree, okay?

P.s. I still can't link up so could someone please link me up? By the end of the week, I should be back on my computer!

Oh yes, tailored jackets are awesome! And I'm curious about that new bra....whether you have something to put in them or not, isn't that sorta like false advertising?

Or maybe that's just me being jealous about my lack to fill one of those bad boys - lol!

Ooooh....a personal shopper....yes I need one of those too! I too am always drawn towards the sweats and yoga gear...a bad habit! I try and try to look more put together but I always end up in a wool sweater and jeans when I need to look "dressed up". My little sister is so put together, maybe she can be my personal shopper when I run into some cash (where can I find that?) and drop these last 19 baby pounds! ;)

I love True Religion jeans. I only own ONE pair and I saved up for them. LOL

I wish I had like 10 pairs though :)

I am a blue jean and tee shirt kinda person. I hate buying shoes. I will wait forever for one to go on sale that I want. I don't think you should spend a fortune on them. Settle down just my opinion.I would definetly need a personal shopper.

OMG - I think shoes should be a splurge, although I love a good deal on them.

I want to be someone's personal shopper. I love to shop and if I can do it with someone else money I would be in heaven!

WOW This could be my list! Although Friday I got lucky and found a blue jean shirt/jacket at a yard sale. It was from Old Navy and is EXACTLY what I have been wanting...it is also my size. I paid $1 for it.

Can you believe it! $1!!!!!!!
She had $2 on it and looked tired so I ask if she would take less and she said yes!

Tailored jacket. I'm in need of one, too. Great list! I laughed out loud at heading straight for the sweats. I do that with hoodies, too! :-)

True Religion jeans are on my post-baby-body list ... I've always wanted a pair and after birthing two babies, I am feeling like I'd be totally worth it :)

As for the Vickie Secret bra, I've got that two cup size advantage already ... and my milk hasn't even come in yet ... yikes!
