100 Day Retail Dextox No More!

WOO HOO!
I made it!


It is over and I am so happy! 
 Especially since I could go out today and spend the Christmas money burning a hole in my pocket!!
I went out early this morning actually to do some returns and got double my money's worth.
Plus, I found the red jeans I have been wanting since about day 2 of this shopping detox.
Honestly,though~ I didn't go out and go crazy. 
 I got my red jeans, did some exchanges and called it a day.
  I have a nice list on my phone and when I find those items,
 I will purchase them. 
I wore this Friday afternoon when I hosted a party for husbands work.
I decided to mix the black and brown because I really like that look and it is more interesting just all black.
I will admit that the belt in this picture I did buy on the Thursday before Christmas.
I saw it, it was on sale and I knew it wouldn't be there after Christmas since it was the last one.

Did you go shopping today?
What did you do~
 buy, return or exchange??

Love the mix of black and brown. The belt is terrific. I wouldn't have waited to purchase it either.

Congrats on finishing the detox. That is quite a feat. I have done a few retail-free periods in the past and it sure does feel good when you are finished, but there is always something to tempt us, right?

No shopping for me today - I am not a fan of the crowds, however, I will probably peruse some online sites this week to pick up a few things. Luckily, nothing to return for me this year.

Enjoy spending the rest of your Holiday loot.

First off, Brett, you look amazing in this outfit...it is so cute! Second, you are really an inspiration for all of us...not only did you abstain from shopping, but you kept an outfit blog fresh and thriving during this time! Great job on all accounts!

YAY you made it! Brett I am so proud of you! This outfit is AWESOME, the belt, the necklace, the patterned tights, the boots...wow!!!!

I love those tights! And you found red jeans? Jealous! I tried on three pairs today, but none of them worked and I ended up with grey. Red and cobalt are both on my list though.

Black and brown is a favorite combination of mine (seriously...I think I subconsciously hate color)! This is looooovely.

Can't believe your retail detox is done! Congratulations! I haven't shopped much since Black Friday. My Christmas money is paying my bills and going in the bank! Makes me feel good. It's not like I don't have anything to wear...

What a fun look! Love the belt!

Way to go--no shopping for 100 days, that's impressive! I did a little shopping today, also spending some Christmas money. I'm trying to stick to my list this year as well :)
