So I broke the fast and bought two things. But before you go huffing at me like I’m some kind of relapsed addict, there’s a story.
First, this pair of nylon Elizabeth & James (the Olsen’s line) shorts has been in my shopbop wishlist for 6 or so months. Since it appeared that no one was visiting my wishlist or buying anything off of it, I took matters into my own hands and went to ebay. Ebay and I had a nasty divorce last winter when some unseen shipping charges sent an innocent (albeit drunken) couple of purchases beyond the $200 mark and I had to remove it from my bookmarks bar. But this time, I found the shorts in question for $49.99.
But I managed to get them for nothing by selling these old Lilly Pulitzer placemats of my granny’s that have been packed away since I rescued them from her house in a big move a few years back.
Then I blew it and got this slightly more expensive Vena Cava chiffon t-shirt from a sale on Gilt Groupe. If you don’t participate in that, e-mail me and I’ll send you a referral. It’s so brilliant.
Time to tighten my belt for School Taxes, Rd. 2.
