Shopping Ban

If you’re a friend of mine on Facebook (if you’re not, click the Facebook button on the right!), you already know I’m on shopping ban for the month of October.


So of course, all of my favorite stores up and decided to have fabulous sales.

It gets worse. While flipping through a magazine I came across a Coach ad featuring a gorgeous scarf that’s just screaming my name:

The ocelot scarf is not on sale, but y’all know how much I love a cute animal print!

Anyhoo, I am now counting the days until November 1st and the end of this ridiculous, self-imposed shopping ban.


  1. and what possessed u to imposed this?

  2. LOL! Now that I see this scarf, I'm asking myself the same thing.

    I have a closet full of nice things, but never anything to wear. So this is like a cooling off period to help me make better decisions when I do go back to shopping.

    The dh does NOT like me on shopping ban. Makes me kinda crabby.

  3. Oh good luck. I'm not on any ban because I it's October and I still don't have my Fall essentials down. Besides I don't have enough money to call any sort of ban. Who am I foolin? Cute scarf. It shall be yours soon.

  4. Kwana - I'm shopping my own (junky) closet for fall, and crossing my fingers I can fit into my cold weather things.

    LOL! I'm ordering that scarf at midnight Nov. 1st.

  5. You ended up placing yourself on a shopping ban? Lol. The scarf looks nice and appears to fit you and your elegant nature quite well.

  6. I love animal prints, especially the cats. (My deluded friends, however, think cat prints are whorish.) I've got a little leopard scarf that's just bee-yootiful. And I haven't worn it once. I'd give a lot of money for a leopard swimsuit that fits my long torso. Or a nice gauze leopard big shirt to cover up my black swimsuit. If you see anything along those lines be sure to let me know!

    Let me stop torturing myself. o_O Said I wasn't shopping in October but I've already broken that, so I've extended my penance to November 30 while I pay off the credit card. :(

  7. @Don - LOL! I don't want to end up the best-dressed person in the poor house.

    @Liane - Cat prints, whorish???? Hmmm, that's gotta be why I love 'em so much!!!! Target has a new hot pink animal print bag that looks like a perfect mix of cute and tacky:|1287991011&searchSize=30&searchPage=1&searchNodeID=1038576|1287991011&searchBinNameList=subjectbin%2Cprice%2Ctarget_com_primary_color-bin%2Ctarget_com_size-bin%2Ctarget_com_brand-bin&frombrowse=0

    Maybe this shopping ban is a good thing after all.

  8. Hey PB
    I need a shopping ban at least until Black Friday. :-)

  9. @PJD - I'm seriously considering extending this one until Black Friday!

  10. I have a coupon for 100 off of 300, and this scarf may be coming home with me. I love it.
