Anti-Shopping Challenge Update #1

It’s been about three weeks since I started my shopping ban and I think I’ve been doing really well. I met with my bank manager today to order some cheques and he asked me, “How do you have so much money in your account?”. At that point, I laughed so hard I almost had tears in my eyes and I told him about my shopping ban. It’s not that I have so much money in my account but I guess he’s used to me not having so much money in my account. He told me that I qualified to get FREE cheques as long as I keep my balance above a certain amount. I told him it should be a problem if I adhere to my shopping ban. WHEEE! I like free things! 🙂

Since I can’t shop, I’ve decided to share some of my nail polish collection:

My nail polish rack

It doesn’t really fit all my nail polish. I think my collection has outgrown my rack. I need to either get another one, or give away some of the colours that I’m not really using.

Essie Chinchilly

This is one of my favourite colours at the moment. Not that I restrain myself in terms of nail polish colours, but it is conservative enough for the office but still very current. I have a business casual event so I decided to take off my OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui which is a beautiful shade of turquoise-y blue and paint my nails with a more appropriate taupe-ish colour.

Now for more online shopping torture:

Skull & Bunny Avedon Skinny

I’ve always wanted a pair of Skull & Bunny jeans from COH and these are available from Revolve Clothing but not for international export. It’s better this way since last year’s Skull & Bunnys were way cuter and a boyfit which is more comfortable than these but the crystals on these are nice too.

Coach Sydney available at Coach Stores for $798.00

I’ve always been a fan of Coach’s leather. I love a bag with more than one way to carry it. Classic turnlock flap is reminiscent of vintage coach and the chain strap is so elegant. Not much brand-screaming with the subtle tags on the handle. Only drawback to the Sydney is that the chain is not removable. I guess only the Marc Jacobs Stam is perfect… *sigh* It will be mine! I guess I will not be using my preferred customer card to get 25% off on this bag. It is up for grabs to anyone in Vancouver who will be purchasing something from Coach before May 9th. Mother’s Day is coming!

All right, enough torture! Time for bed. 😉

    Nice nail polish rack. That pink one, next to the white one, looks like the color I was wearing on Friday.

  2. OMG! I’ve never seen a nail polish collection quite that extensive – that’s an impressive display. I think I might have an old grungy bottle of clear in my drawer somewhere. But I want to become more of a nail polish person – always looks so fun and sophisticated.
