things i should really stop buying: part one

Floral dresses. Well, floral anything really. I bought this Quirky Circus by Mink Pink dress over the weekend. I just couldn’t resist, mainly because the print reminded me of my favourite floral dress from when I was a kid (ahh the power of nostalgia). Plus I used a gift card to purchase this, so technically it doesn’t count as ‘buying’ it. It was a belated birthday present!

‘Everyday’ t-shirts. Can you ever have too many plain t-shirts? It seems that I am on a mission to find out. Bought these for cheap at Valleygirl (cue various ick noises… but hey, at least it wasn’t Supre, right?) I wouldn’t even have bought these if it wasn’t for the pockets. That’s another thing I should probably stop doing: buying things just because they have pockets.

Now, I’m not necessarily saying that having too many of these is a bad thing, but sometimes after I come home from a shopping trip I tend to realise that “hey, maybe I didn’t need to buy another white v-neck t-shirt to add to my collection of 23459874565476 other white v-neck t-shirts”. Or that instead of spending all my money on the same style dress, I could have invested in an equally awesome but totally different type of dress. You know, because variety is the spice of life. Apparently.

So tell me, what are your “things that you should really stop buying”? (Or, to phrase it more positively, “things that you can’t get enough of”?)

    I too have a terrible addiction to floral. I have floral docs, handbags, dresses, skirts, rings, sooo many floral things. I am quite picky with my floral prints, but there actually seem to be so many grand ones around these days online and even in stores.
