100 Day Retail Detox Update

Here we are the first Friday in November. It really doesn't seem like that should be does it?? We will be fast approaching the holidays now and I will be sourly tested in my 100 Day Retail Detox I fear!
This weekend my mother-in-law is in town and we will be going shopping. 
 I am excited to look and see what is out and about since I haven't really been in a store in so long.
 (not counting the magical world of Vegas) 
I just hope I don't leave in a big depression.
So far, I really haven't had much of a problem this week. 
 I have been so busy catching up from being out of town.
  I have seen some darling things out in the blog world that I would love,
 but am just making a wish list right now.
This outfit was from yesterday. 
 I love this blouse and saw Heidi Klum wearing something similar in a magazine not too long ago. 
 I love it when I see clothes I own on a celebrity or model!
You can't tell, but the blouse has some pops of green in it,
 so I added some green and blingy bracelets and a lighter green necklace.
I love black and gray together and with the touch of green it was perfect.

Do you own something that is the same or similar to a celebrity?
Did you get it before or after you saw the person wearing it?

This is such a chic outfit. The pants and blouse are fabulous! Have fun with the MIL this weekend. You will do great with the retail detox!

You look great, Brett! Just look at the shopping trip as research for your blog...focus on what to share with your readers rather than what you don't have and what you want...it makes it a lot more fun when you are a reporter in the field rather than a shopper!!

I love hearing about your shopping detox. No other bloggers I read are doing it, so it's super fun to check in with you and see how you're doing. I bet the holidays are going to be tough. But I have complete confidence in you! You can do it!

I enjoy your jacket here. It looks super cozy and warm. Oh, oh and oh! Look at those cute shoes popping out from underneath your trouser leg! How cute!

I really love that sweater jacket and that blouse. Oh, and the pants. Oh yeah, and your hair looks amazing. I guess I should have just said that I love it all. Oh well.

So, on this detox, if your mother inlaw wanted to buy you stuff, can she? My mother inlaw has been known to shower me with gifts. She bought me a pair of Louboutin's once. I never wear them because they scare me. haha.

Love the jacket and blouse! The trim on the jacket is too cute. You are doing so good on this detox. I don't think I could do it!!

You look great, Brett!! I love that blouse!

I don't think I've ever bought something that I saw on a celebrity, but I have seen them where things that inspired me to try something similar with clothes I have!

The pattern on the blouse is really pretty. I love your arm party, too. Good luck shopping! I had a really distinctive black dress that my friend saw like six months later on Whitney Port. I thought it was refreshing that she would wear a past season piece.

Your jacket is fantastic and I can only guess that your legs are a mile long. They are amazing in these pics.

I hope your retail detox went alright with weekend.
