Shopping ban, anyone care to join? (May shopping challenge... Are you game?) - Page 15

Um.. Oops

Missing new white trs for classes and my car crystal as.

(Dakota Patches, Painted NYD, COH, White Habitual crops, SFAM skirt)
(Norway As, Dojo cords, A cords, R&R Pixies, BKK As)
(Bahama? crops, Khaki sfam, velvet sfam, torontos, novas)

What jeans should I sell? I need to get rid of something!

Well, what haven't you touched in 3 months?

In my opinion, keep the classics and unload the ones that don't get enough use

I would toss:
- Habitual white crops (white can get dirty easily, and the jeans look rather non-descript)
- Norway A's (you have plenty of grey washes as is)
- A Cords (cords don't seem very classic)
- Bahama crops (you already have A-pockets)
- Khaki SFAM (they look rather bland)

I'll sign up after I win these SFAMs I want today.....I am selling the stutters, they looked like utter crap on me So I haven't really bought anything that I am keeping so since 4/4 I haven't bought anything that I have kept, only bought those Chromas, then traded and now I'm selling the strutters that I traded for....so I don't think its that bad if I get these SFAMs today....only one pair since 4/4 and nothing else....thats GOOD for me since I used to buy 3-4 pair a week

I want chocolate LOL

Well, my main problem is that I have two seperate wardrobes... basically for school, I wear my cords (dojo, A), khakis, all grey jeans (toronto/bkk), capris, etc for classes (Mon-Sat) and school functions. I must keep all my cords, khakis (they look tons cuter irl), and the torontos.

So, maybe sell habitual crops, bkk, and either my dakota patch or purple crystal as?

Di, you can end your shopping ban on June 7th. You can't cheat like that!

I have been a very good girl I resisted the urge to buy the bracelet I wanted (well until the end of the month when I get paid)

What the heck.. I could have sworn that I already replied to this and yet my post is gone?!

Do you keep the cords, khakis and grey jeans for your school's dress code?

^ Yup... pretty much. Besides, they're super comfy.
post #359 of 495
Keep the ones you wear often and sell the ones you don't wear. Don't hold onto them because they are pretty or because you've lusted them for so long. Be practical.

Although this is what I tell myself and even I have a hard time parting with my jeans.

How did I cheat??

It's the May challenge that ends June 1st. You are joining late therefore your ban ends later too.

Oh, it's a box of Godiva chocolates with 4 inside.. Nothing crazy like 30.
post #363 of 495
congrats everyone! Another day with NOTHING purchased for me! I'm thinking of selling some things still....you'll have to help me!

I also found a coach purse I LOVE!!!! but I'll wait until July (first pay check!) to buy it!!

Callire, when are you done school? Maybe you can get rid of a few things before, and then more after. Keep what you love, and get rid of whats "ok." I'm sure when you start school in the fall you'll want different and new things anyway!

...do you mean when does the school year end, or when do I get out of "school?"

ohhhhhhh not a problem, but I just lost LOL I BIN'd some A pockets for like $12 shipped, have a stain but it was an impulse

By mid next week I will have met my goal anyways

But this thread has SERIOUSLY helped me put things into perspective and I don't think I'll ever go back to buying 3-4 pairs a week like I was Thanks girls!!!
post #366 of 495
Tsk tsk, it didn't take you long to fall off the bandwagon!
post #367 of 495

Oh sigh... You are right. Except I never bought that $2350 ring after all!

The thing is, when I was still with the ex-bf I was isolated from my friends. Now that I'm free again, I consider it necessary to go out with my friends for food and drinks. Granted, I probably should have skipped out on that $200 Perigee dinner the other week, but it was my BFF's birthday. There's also this cocktail party my friends are going to this Friday with unlimited appetizers and drinks for $50 which I am extremely tempted by. Someone please talk me out of it!

I'm done here. I have bought a few things today, but I'm so close to goal, I'm not worried anymore. I'm also selling some stuff soon too. I went on a crazy rampage yesterday and paid $240 for some jeans, but I've already told myself I'm going to return them as soon as they get here so I'm not worried about that.

Thanks girls This has just helped me keep things in perspective, not a total ban anymore for me, but I'm leaving this thread a happier, not-so-damn-addicted person

Go girls!!!

I'm still working on my ban. In the last week I've bought: Turquise Stitching Chelsey wash Super Ts and a pair of Kiedis Nitric Sigs. However, I've almost sold $1000 worth of jeans, although I should probably keep weeding through my closet. It just kills me when one of my most wanted pairs comes up!
post #374 of 495
I think I need to jump on this bandwagon pretty soon. I just bought Henlees in Intruder Blue -- $385 after shipping and tax, I can only pray customs doesn't try and bend me over -- and Neils in Vendetta Feud, which at least were 20% off at Revolve with the discount.

But I still want some Floyd Oxycontins before I can ban myself from R&R purchases for a very long time. (FloOx is the only pair left on my wish list!)

I'm impressed by you all.

^^oh you must post pics of the intruders when you get them!!!
