It's Instagram's Fault!

I think it's safe to say that Instagram has become an addiction of mine and I've become a broke shop-a-holic while browsing people's pictures and finding many "had to have" items.  

In my attempts to ease the financial burden of all these recent purchases, I started to sell all of my old clothes, shoes and jewelry on Ebay.  The extra cash could pay for all of the new goodies I was dying to get my hands on.  It was easy, if I wanted a new item all I had to do was sell something to pay for it. Right? Well, what sounded like a good plan actually turned into a spending frenzy with hopes of selling some old junk!  

Before I knew it, I was purchasing two to three things a day through online shopping.  It's just too easy to shop online! ;)

4.) Forever 21 Faux Fur Vest (sold out) 5.) Zigi Soho Studded Flats 6.) J. Crew Sequins stripe tee

I'd say reality set in for me when I was trying to figure out what was coming in the mail for me, and I couldn't keep track of all the purchases I had made!  9 things!  I had 9 separate items scheduled to arrive within a few days of each other.  Steve, if you're reading this...I'm sorry! :)

They say the first step is admitting you have a problem...welp, yes I do!

I heard about the closet remix challenge on Instagram and decided that I would give up shopping for 30 days and take this challenge of using clothes I already have in my wardrobe in a fun new way.  Plus, I needed something to give up for Lent! :)

So, that's my story...for today!

Stay tuned for the 10th item I had coming to my house...the purchase that broke my wallet the camel's back! :)
