Somebody Call Shopaholics Anonymous

I don't know if it's new love or what - but lately I can't get enough SHOPPING.

Oh wait, who am I kidding - I love shopping whether I am single or not.

Anyways, I have been a shopping fool lately and I honestly can't keep up with the parade of new junk I keep hauling in.  It's disgusting and I have the credit card bills to prove it!

And unfortunately, I have lost my camera remote and daylight.  I am rarely home during any daylight hours so all my photos are terrible and grainy.  Forgive me? 

Maybe someday I'll get a photography assistant... *cough* Mr. RH *cough*.

Let's jump right into the shopping, shall we?  Let's start at Forever21.

First up, my obsession: The Basic Knit Tunic

 This bad boy is sooo long it's almost ridiculous.  I purchased it in 7 colors, I think.  Can't wait to wear it with LEGGINGS!

Did I mention that, a week or so ago, Mr. RH told me, straight up, that leggings were not pants.  I laughed in his face and told him to get over it.  We'll see...

Next up, the Belted Floral Dress:

 I really like this dress but it's short.  And I'm not 22 anymore.  So... it's just meh.

I bought this Lots-o-Dots Top for work...

But I'm a little sketchy about it.  I don't think it's gonna work out, even thought retail is more casual than any office job!

I like this Essential Ruffle Tank, especially for less than $5.

Cheap and cute - love it!

I bought this Ruched Petals Top for work as well (I have to wear white every day)... and I think it's a keeper.
It's not my favorite on me but, hey, it's for work.  And apparently I have low standards at work.

I soo wanted this Striped Knit Dress to work, but it's beyond short.
  Can you see my good girl from that angle?  Or are you too distracted by the lovely electrical outlet?

I got 3 belts that I love - 2 bright skinny belts for under $2 each.  Are you kidding me?

And then the buckled elastic belt - which is fun and a little bit different for me.
And then I got several hair accessories not worth picturing.  And then the Scary Earrings.  

 Have I mentioned my deadly fear of birds?  I'm not sure what I was thinking.

 American Eagle had a fab sale over Labor Day and I was very tempted by many things.  Especially their dresses.

 The Raw-Edged Corset dress was not everything I wanted it to be... too dang short!

 Fortunately, this dress, which is sold-out now, is amazing.  It's a teensy bit shorter than I want... but...


 Yeah, it's amazing with a denim jacket.  Pretty sure I have to keep it. 


 I got these earrings too...  they're just OK, in my opinion.
And last but not least is my most-favorite purchase of the early fall shopping season... these earrings from LOFT sold out online and were gone at every store I checked.  I went into a store a couple of weeks ago and there was a lone pair on clearance.


 Can you say FATE?

Are we done talking about shopping yet?  I think I'm even bored of myself!

And I would like to thank all of you for complaining about me cropping my head out.... cause now you get all these awkward expressions.  YOU'RE WELCOME!

You always have such good luck with Forever 21, you got such cute stuff! I might have to break down and buy those skinny belts in ever color.

I can't remember the last time I was thin enough to shop at F21. Heck, I feel like a whale these days and can't shop ANYWHERE!

Why did you buy earrings w/ feathers if you hate birds?

I've been on a kick too...change of seasons always does it for me. Going to have to check out those belts...I was eyeing some at Target, but was having trouble deciding, but for $2 I'd prob just buy all the options!

Put some black capri length leggings under each of those dresses and keep them all! Adorable!
