is it bad?: shop til you drop

dress ~ Kohls (1st trip)
coat ~ swap
tights ~ Target
booties ~ F21
earrings ~ hand-me-down from nora

~ is it bad that i have preemptively spent birthday money that i haven't received yet?
~ is it bad that i went to kohls and found so many great deals that i went back the next night and bought more stuff?
~ is it bad that every time i go to target for food, i end up sweeping through the clearance racks and shoe section? (every time.)
~ is it bad that i only look at the 70% clearance racks at target because 30-50% off just isn't cheap enough for me?
~ is it bad that i shopped so much last week that i didn't even feel like shopping the president's day sales? (chris would think that is good.)
~ is it bad that i can write a whole "is it bad" post about my poor shopping habits?

happy tuesday!!

  1. Sounds like fun to me! Your outfit is adorable btw.

  2. Sounds to me like you're a smart shopper!
    You skirt is stunning - it's such a refreshing pop of colour against the snowy backdrop! Love it!

  3. Of course not! Not bad at all. I only look at the major sale racks too. I'm not going to buy anything that is not clearance priced, so there is no point in looking at anything else.

  4. I say hell no to all of the above? And that dress is the PERFECT grown up version of a birthday party dress - TOO FUN!

  5. It's all good!

    I am glad you found that dress at Kohl's. I never like giving them full price, because it seems as if things are marked higher there.


  6. i can't go to target without looking at the shoes and clearance. and I too have gone back to a store because I got so many good things and was afraid I missed more!

  7. <3 target and <3 this look!

  8. haha, I love this! I have to ban myself from Target because I will do the same thing...I'll stop in for something like more facewash and end up with a pair of clearance shoes too.

  11. I head straight for the clearance section every time I'm in Target too, even if I went there for something else like toilet paper. The deals are too good to resist!

  12. Not bad at all - I'm living vicariously through you since I'm not shopping right now! I love the clearance racks at Target!!

    I love the dress you found at Kohls - very fun!

  13. omg i can NEVER go into target and come out with only what i wanted to get in the first place! i'm right there with ya lady!


  14. Such a cute dress! I love the hot pink! And I totally understand what you mean about Kohl's and Target! Those places are very dangerous for my wallet.

  15. Ha! I'm the same way at Target - 30% off?? No way - I'll wait til it's 70%! Love the bright pink!

  16. Lol! I do that at Target too, but that's why I've stopped going to Target for groceries ;)

    Love this dress!

  17. Ah...the obsession of shopping. I think we all may need a bit of an intervention. I know I do.

    I love the pink! So nice in winter.


  18. I'd say "It's all good!"

    Cute tights, actually cute dress, and cute you too.

  19. Love the hot pink skirt and gloves!
    You sound like me...spending money that I am going to get.
    Probably not the wisest decision is it?? LOL

  20. I did a lot of shopping myself last week. That dress is adorable.

  21. your skirt is amazing, i love it lovelie!


  22. Ha I shopped til I dropped once got a nice tax return so figured I would hop down to soho and have a Carrie B SITC kind of day shopped alone all day stopped for lunch then an espresso part of it was fun but I actually found it overwhelming not sure if I would do it again short bursts ov shopping is better for me : o

  23. Haha! As to the 70% Target clearance racks and Kohls deals... we are twins! =)

  24. YES, YES, yes, yes, and yes and some more yes es.


  25. I like the bright pink! I've been trying to cut back on shopping, so I can save my money for spring and summer clothes.

  26. If it's bad, let me know, because I'm guilty of ALL that you listed!
    Isn’t That Charming.

  27. Ooo, the pink is so striking-I love it! This looks great with just a pop of color while keeping the rest of the ensemble neutral. Also, I identified with like ALL of your shopping habits...great to know I'm not the only one! And Kohl's is the best, right? What is up with them being SO AWESOME. Gosh.

  28. Dont worry most of us shop like that and we even get bore of shopping for a week or two like you :) Nice thigts, love them.

  29. Girl, Kohl's has the best sales sometimes, so don't even feel guilty. I bought the trench coat from my latest blog post from Kohl's, and it's honestly one of the best things in my closet.



  30. Is it bad that I can shop for housewares until I die. Is it bad that I still have way too much clothing in my closet and I have only bought a hand full of vintage clothing in the past few months??? It's ok even if it is bad...xoxo

  31. ha-ha-ha! dynamite outfit megan bird. when do we get to see your new stuff? ;)
