I got my eye on you!

once again i swore off buying ANY new clothes - ever since Lent has been over (i gave up shopping for it) i have been shopping like i have an unlimited amount of Benjamin's - which is THE farthest from the truth!

between buying big ticket items for my house - buying all the lil things u never even think about - saving money so i can reside my house and landscape (looks like it'll be 2012 for that) not to mention i still need a washer and dryer! - insane outlet mall shopping - buying designer handbags and shoes - artwork and sculptures for the house - ect. - the list can go ON for days - i just been spending and spending with no regards to anything!  (not a good idea, btw)

so i swore to myself (and Adri) that i'm going to wear ONLY what i have from here on out! - not buying anything else (clothing) this summer - i always say i'm going to 'do this' - but i have struggled for YEARS (since high school, yea a LONG time) - gotta keep trying till i get it right, right?!

anyway i might not be able to buy - but i can still look (and hint for presents)
here's what i'm eyeing:

this caftan/dress has been in my dreams for days - i can't stop thinking about it - this picture came in my Wink e-mail - but no luck on finding out WHO it's by -- ANY IDEAS?!?!

this tie-dye tribal dress by Calypso is already 50% off - i sooooo want it

this Pencey dress is screaming for me to own it - this is allllll me - i love the flow of this - screams comfort!

again how boho-comfy-cool are these wide leg flower pants by Free People - WANT!

i know i already bought 3 new bags (in like a month) - but i'm loven' this bag by Elliott Mann - it's only $275, not bad i say! -- i bought one like this from Zara years ago, i think it's time i look for it!

these Jarbro Pallazo pants have my heart! - i'm thinking with a simple white tank - PERFECTION for the summer! - LOVE LOVE LOVE!

loven' this simple classic staple maxi by Blue Life - they make the most comfy clothes!

i'm in dire need of these Joe's sandals - they are the perfect lil black flip flop - i MUST find a way to get these!  (i've had 3 dreams about these, for real!)

ladies if this isn't the perfect silk top to have in your wardrobe, then i don't know what is! - it's by Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent

i'm all over this trend this summer - 'the feathers in the hair' - i know on Etsy and some other spots they have them at reasonable prices - this one is by Lovedown - i bought 3 from Michelle Roy on Billion Dollar Babes

i have been in love with the Chanel 2 tone round sunglasses for years - but they are just too small for my face - these Karen Walker sunglasses have my attention - so do these Tom Fords!



ps - i did once last splurge at Willow St yesterday - i'm going to be spotlighting them soon - it's a great lil boutique in Summit NJ - more to come!!

sorry for delay - GIVEAWAY starts Tuesday!!!
(( had to go to Staten Island this am - Kayleigh is sick with a fever and hasn't been eating - so after work i'll be heading back to the island to see my babycakes ))
