I Have a Shopping Problem

First, I just wanted to make sure to update everyone on my quest for the perfect t-shirt. It's been a long, tough journey.

In fact, some of the stores didn't even have long-sleeved t-shirts. (Have I mentioned that the city I live in has NO good shopping?)

Either way, I finally listened to Catie, Jac, Kassie, Ms. Minneapolis, Mrs. Newlywed, and Melissa and went to Target (it's not like I wasn't going there anyways!).

And I FINALLY found some dang long-sleeved t-shirts.

I got the aqua and gray because the white was just beyond see-through.

They're on sale for $7 each this week so at that price I feel like I might have to go back and get the black and maybe even the white, for layering.

Wow, I know that you are absolutely glued to your computer and this is the best post you've read today, right? Right.


I'm starting to like ^ those ^ little dashes. Such a handy little segue into my next random thought.

So, Etsy. I love. I'm obsessed.

I found brensgemstonejewelry and love it. She uses the most beautiful stones!

I bought 2 pairs of earrings from her and I'm debating if I need more. What do you think?

I just love the color of the pair on the right - so gorgeous! AND the lady who runs the shop is a-mazing. She changed the yellow pair from posts to hooks just for me and shipped them the next day.

I'm also loving the Indian-inspired earrings from Billie's Blue Boutique.

What do you think?? I mean.. they're only $3 each so I should probably just order them, right?

That's what happening in my boring life...

Have I mentioned I love shopping? I think I have a problem.

Its only a problem if you don't have the money to shop. Otherwise go for it. You should def get those earrings though. Too cute!

Whitney said...

Love the Indian inspired earrings!!! SO CUTE.

I have a shopping problem too! :P It drives my boyfriend crazy but I figure since I'm spending my own $$... who cares?!

Those Blue earrings are gorge. Might have to take a little look at Etsy. Mind you, by the time I've paid the shipping costs to the UK it's probably not worth it.

I've signed up for the Great American Apparel Diet where a group of blogging ladies are blogging about not buying any clothes for a whole year!!! But we are all allowed to buy accessories and shoes so I'm accessory mad!

I see you're shredding! Me to. Love your comments about Gillians boobs!! :-D

etsy = dangerous. i just discovered some mineral makeup shops on there and i'm hooked. you seriously can't beat the prices and i always like supporting fellow artists. definitely a good cause :)

and i need to go to target.


Kelsey @ Seattle Smith's said...

Oh my --- $3 each!! I need to check them out too, go for it!

nickjr01 said...

go for it... if you don't shop, i have no blogs to read from you!!!

Leah said...

Great finds... the shirt looks perfect and those earrings are so cute. I especially love the Indian inspired design. And to think they are so cheap, go buy them all. I guess a shopaholic cannot give a sound advice to a co-shopaholic.

I wear shirts like that but I like v-neck. I am always looking for longer shirts because I'm tall and they shrink in the wash. Very hard to find.

Earrings are cute!

KatherineBee said...

I bought shirts from Target a year ago that I loved, and as soon as I washed them they shrank like nobody's business. And now they're crop tops and super starchy. Be careful when washing!

Andhari said...

I like the left pair of earrings that you bought, so cute.:)

Lis said...

Whenever I read your tweets I think "Gosh I wish we lived near each other!!" Then I realize we would be in serious debt if we did!! :)

And thanks for the heads up on the shirts - I don't know why I have such a hard time finding long sleeve t-shirts too - but I def do!! I'm going to check these out! :)

Those are so cute! Totally worth $3!

I just KNEW you would find t-shirts at Target! I love Etsy, too. Like, waste-hours-and-hours-of-time love.

Okay now I need to go to Target (again). I love those big blue earrings! Beautiful!

Those earrings are adorable!

1. Layering is the best. It bothers me that it's so warm where I work, because I can't layer for at least another month.

2. Etsy = amazing, Bargains = amazing, Earrings = cute!

Trenches of Mommyhood said...

I am totally checking out Target's tees tomorrow on my day off!

In this wonderful life... said...
