outfit of the day(bird): abrakadabra, sleep shopping!

shirt ~ ebay
jeans ~ Marshalls
earrings ~ hand-me-down
shoes ~ thrifted

if you know me at all, you know that i love to shop. i love to thrift, i love a good deal, and i love the thrill of the hunt. however, i also feel guilty if i spend too much money. i can often rationalize my purchases with some very good reasoning, but i think i found the ultimate purchase rationalization...

i was sleeping!

yep, you read that right. i sleep-shopped. you see, i had seen this shirt online earlier in the day and really liked it. and then i went to bed. when i woke up, i had an email not only from ebay, saying i had purchased the shirt, but also one from paypal saying i had paid for it.

so now i have a new shirt (which i paid very little for, by the way), and i don't even feel guilty about spending money on it, because i didn't know i was doing it.

is that a valid defense???
(even if it's not, i still love my shirt.)

  1. Valid defense: check.
    Super cute t-shirt: check.
    Great looking outfit: check.
    I wanna be you today. :)

  2. Omg sleep shopping! I have yet to do that! But I think it was very worthwhile- that shirt looks adorable on you!

  3. I can honestly say I have never sleep shopped. But maybe I would if I found cute tees like that whilst sleeping. :)

  4. That's hilarious! Can't say I've done that...yet

  5. Oh my that! Maybe I'll have to start sleep shopping :) Love your new tee and those fabulous shoes!

  6. This happens with me, but instead of shopping, I wake up with candy bar wrappers on my nightstand or cookie crumbs on my pillow or the peanut butter jar left on the counter with a spoon still in it. I think my ass would be smaller if I could sleep shop rather than sleep eat.

  7. Haha! I can't say I've ever sleep shopped but maybe I can start :)

    Scarf Giveaway!

  8. Sleep shopping! That's a new one! Love it! It's a cute shirt though!

    There's a Bill Engvall routine in which he talks about the dumb warnings on stuff (Here's Your Sign) and one of them is to not use your blow dryer while sleeping - he's like "darn it, I was sleep styling again!" that's totally what I just though of reading this post!

  9. Wow!!! Now that is talented! This is a great shirt and I totally applaud your nocturnal shopping habits!

  10. I love that top but I can't believe you thrifted those shoes! They are so awesome!

  11. I am so sad you thrifted those shoes because I really really REALLY want them lol! But good for you, I love seeing your thrift finds :) Adorable as always!

  12. HAHAHA! You always have the best stories! I l really like that top, so kudos to your unconsciousness!

  13. HAHAHAHA! You are good then! Love your new shop. It was a great purchase.

  14. Great shirt!

    Ha! I'm surprised I haven't sleep shopped yet myself. And yes, that is a perfectly reasonable defense.

  15. Wow!!! That is crazy! (and a little bit scary!)

  16. I've totally done that before. It takes talent.. and extreme shopping addiction, haha. You look so cute! :)

  17. I firmly think after reading this post that you are bonifide certifiable since your wedding is stressing you out! Please Megen - get married and get back to normal. hahahahahaha (you know I love you?)

    Honestly, can't wait to hear all about your wedding and everything that went right and of course, wrong. It always does but that is part of the great memories you will hold forever!

  18. Cool tshirt, nice relax look. I want your wedges :)

  19. You look so cute and chic
    Love the t and those wedges

  20. ha-ha, that's funny. i bet you're glad you didn't buy something expensive. i really like your shirt, and whole outfit too. it's very cosmic mystical, like a galaxy, which i adore. i envy those shoes, and jeans too.
