i could give up shopping, but i'm no quitter.

There are certain things I love about life. Like, sunny days, movie nights with friends, and yes, shopping. Okay, I admit it. There is some kind of thrill I get when I shop. You know, when you see something that you instantly fall in love with? And then you couldn't possibly imagine it not being in your life? I'm pretty sure that makes me a shopaholic, but....well, I've accepted it.

On that note: here are a couple of my favourite quotes from "Confessions of a Shopaholic"....

“I love new clothes. If everyone could just wear new clothes everyday, I reckon depression wouldn’t exist anymore.” 

“Shopping is actually very similar to farming a field. You can't keep buying the same thing, you have to have a bit of variety. Otherwise you get bored and stop enjoying yourself.” 

“So I buy it. The most perfect little cardigan in the world. People will call me the Girl in the Gray Cardigan. I’ll be able to live in it. Really, it’s an investment.” 

Since I've just confessed my total love of shopping - and the whole shopping experience - I thought it only fitting to show you a few of my latest purchases. It's nothing too crazy....just a few spring pieces to spice up my wardrobe.

First up, my favourite new pair of earrings. They were an impulse buy for $8...but I am so glad that I picked them up! They're a really fun and easy way to add a little colour to an outfit.

Next was a cute, flowy black and white printed top. I think it'll be great to wear out rollerblading or even with a simple pair of denim shorts. I was totally drawn to the fun print.

Then there was this super adorable dress. The cut is really classic and sophisticated but the print is so cute! It's got giraffes, lions, and elephants. I just love it. It's perfect for going out to dinner....I can't wait to wear it.

Last up on this mini new in post...this floral crop top. I love the sheer part at the top and the feminine details. I've already worn this one out and I just love how it looks. Such a pretty spring top!

I don' t know about you, but I definitely have a little Rebecca Bloomwood in me. I don't know if that's a good or bad thing, but it's sure a lot of fun! I am looking forward to wearing these new pieces out this spring.

Are you a shopaholic? What pieces have you added to your wardrobe lately?

  1. Wowzers... have I ever added to my wardrobe lately! I need to do a similar post, I already took the pics! I've been replacing things that don't fit. I started a new fitness routine, and my old clothes are not compatible with muscles. I'm a whole size bigger, but in a good way.
