so...after seeing Sugo's post in the shopaholics topic I was inspired to create a topic about things you ALMOST bought, but didn't. How did you guys exercise self control today?!

over the weekend I talked myself out of the leopard YSL wedges, the pink lotus jacket, and the black manolo patent mary janes

A Fendi Mama Baguette.... I still want it, but at the time I only had about 100 dollars on me... it's a shame, because it was marked down to about $300

There's a lot of stuff I thought about but never ended up buying

-White Martin Margiela button down shirt with grey checks (didn't like the collar)
-Olive Green Marni button down (looked good at first, went back didn't like it)
- Helmut Lang denim shirt (from this season...i think i might check it out again when it's on sale)

lol they're all button downs...

and there's something that I'll find out if I buy or not within the next 45 minutes...here's to hoping I buy it Will report back in 45.

I still think about this
Marc Jacobs jacket from s/s01

and the skirt (2nd pic) albeit matching in colour
(Dark Jean-blue with white pipping)

..it fitted me perfectly..but I thought it was overpriced..so I decided to wait
-the sales were about a week away, and...(I could kick myself for this)..
didn't go back to Harvey Nic untill a WHOLE week into the sales.

A Theory summercoat that, I had put on hold at Harvey Nic..
and when I returned the next day..they had SOLD to somebody else

A black Costume National winter coat.
I had just bought another coat just the day before..
but I still wise I had bought it..

I still dream about a little light coral coloured Fendi bag
with tinny travel stamps sown unto it,
it was one of a kind..and the pricetag was that of a car
..I'm glad that when I went to require about the cost..it was allready sold..

I get a bit fatalic when it comes to fashion purchase. My mantra goes:

If it is meant for me..
it will be here when I return.

A brown Prada leather messenger bag.
It's the third or fourth time I've gone to look at it so I know I want it for sure.
I'll wait a few more weeks for the sale.

I didn't buy a black leather Dolce & Gabbana biker-ish jacket yesterday, but I'm tempted to go back and do so. Same with a navy distressed velvet Dolce & Gabbana blazer-ish jacket. Always so many decisions...
