Acting on Impulse


So being the shopaholic that I am I often act on impulse and then (seldomly) I end up giving things away that I might not really have wanted/needed. So I have been trying to be good about my shoot first mentality when it comes to shopping… However, sometimes when you wait you end up missing the opportunity completely!!! In the case of this skirt and clutch I really dropped the ball.

The skirt: H&M| Scuba Skirt in Pink went on sale several weeks back and was featured in 2 colors pink shown and black. The skirt retailed for $39.95 and I fell in love… But trying to be a wise shopaholic, I waited. I went to work threw the photo up in Instagram during the holidays and said I would think about it. Sure enough when I got home the skirt was sold out.

The clutch: Markkit| 3D Gold Clutch was featured on Claire Marshall’s YouTube channel in a “What’s in my bag” video. Once again I waited… Sure enough 3 days later payday came around and I was certain that I had to have the clutch as I could not get it out of my mind and once again the clutch was sold out.

My dilemma: Do I continue to be a “wise shopper” and wait to see if I really want an item and risk it selling out? I know what you’re thinking… I could always just buy the item and return it later. But it is that mentality that I have used in the past that has allowed my room to resemble a stock room at H&M or Forever 21. I am stuck between conflicting forces. In any case if you guys know of someone selling the clutch or if you see this skirt is back in stock in a size 12… Please do let me know! Hope you enjoyed the read.
