Lately I've constantly been in a shopping mood (wait, when am I not?), but have been trying increasingly hard to hold back. This semester I'm taking a "Consumer Economics and Resource Management" course (aka Personal Finance 101) as an elective and it has really opened my eyes to learning more about saving. For the last four years I have worked year-round, whether it may be full-time jobs in the summer, part-time during school, and freelance gigs on the side-- but what I'm trying to get at, is the realization that I would have a whack load of money had I been more wise with my spendings. That being said, I'm going to put an effort into saving and investing my money (no, not investing in shoes and purses) without having it put a huge damper on my usual lifestyle. I guess we'll see how this goes. Being a complete hypocrite, I did recently make one huge purchase though, and that's the iPhone 4s that I pre-ordered last week. I'm just going to let that be an exception... (cough, a thousand dollar exception...)
But while I'm going to try and hold back on spending on clothes and accessories mostly, there's nothing wrong with a little eye candy. These are shots from Club Monaco's Fall 1 Lookbook; both the women's and men's collections were so pretty, I just had to share. What are you lusting for this Fall?
