After regressing a bit with the non-shopping, I've been trying to will myself into returning that J Crew coat I got on that spree. So far, no luck. Although I was able to return half of the stuff I got, I wasn't able to convince myself to return some of the other items, including a cashmere sweater and this sweater dress:
Banana Republic cowlneck knit dress - $59.99 (down from $110)
I tried for a few weeks to rationalize that I needed to return some more stuff. I left all my clothes laid out on my couch as a reminder that I needed to decide on keeping or returning anything else. After admitting to myself that this baby wasn't going back to the store, I clipped the tags and wore this dress to my family's Christmas dinner. I also got to wear this earlier this week (Wednesday) to work. I love a great versatile clothes-item. It gives me more reason to keep it! Ha!
