I think we have all suffered from the Impulse Buy at some point – and admittedly I suffer from it more often then I would prefer to admit, but I would never impulsively purchase something that’s over $100 max. Unfortunately, I just can’t afford to impulse by something any more expensive than that – which I feel many people can relate to.
So number one was the decorative pillow, above, with a cropped image of an antique bicycle – the reverse side is solid black. This fits so perfectly with my bedroom and adds just a little something extra fun – like I mentioned – I just couldn’t help myself!
F.Y.I. If you’re interested, it’s from Target!
Hi my name is Sam and I am a scarf addict. Now my collection of scarves has come to a rough estimate of 28 – none of them alike. I feel I should clarify that my wardrobe is primarily solids and about 80% black, so I tend to purchase more fun accessories.
I picked the gray lime-green-polka-dotted scarf up at Gap (along with the flats). It’s luxuriously soft (100% Viscose Rayon) with a subtle sheen, frayed ends and I just had to add it to my collection 🙂
It is also lightweight enough that I could wear it today in 70 degree weather.
And on to The Flats:
Some may know of these flats already but it was the first time I actually went in and tried them on. I fell in love instantly.
These are the City Flats from Gap. They are the leather “elastic city flats” in the color Chalk (with black elastic trim) – which in person is a taupe-y gray.
The Gap City Flats are designed to fold in half and they come with a matching faux-leather drawstring bag. The footbed is padded, making them extremely comfortable to wear – so I am considering this impulse buy an investment 😀
My only concern would be, since they are made to fold in half, there is a gap in the rubber sole right in the center of the arch. Meaning, if you do decide to wear these for 12 hours and are on your feet for a majority of the time – your feet might be saying ouch at the end of the night!
Considering I have flat feet anyways, on my feet in any shoes for that long makes them hurt.
Overall, I feel my latest impulse buys will be put to good use – plus I had coupons!
Have a great weekend!! Feel free to go crazy and impulse buy – it makes me feel less alone in my shopping (semi) addiction.
P.S. 20 Days till The Hunger Games!!! Be excited.
