Hope the pile of pearls isn't too much. hihihi. The middle one is a vintage piece from my mom. I first borrowed it from her when i was twelve. And a few years ago she finally gave it to me. One of my priced possession. Mothers are LOVE.

And this dress, of course it's from my recent thrifting. Where else could i possibly get this beauty other than from the mysterious world of thrift shops. I told you many many times, thrifting is gooood. I haven't been shopping dresses from the malls for months now and i don't want to sound too cocky but malls bore me. hihihi. joke! But I love the aroma of malls...hmmmmm money. Smells so delish. Even the shoppers there smells like one. I don't belong there cos i smell like a mold.

So speaking of shopping. I just made a vow, especially to my husband that i won't shop for brand new clothes till May. c",) And I just wrote a big note on our fridge saying NO SHOPPING or Satan will visit you in your sleep. I guess that will do it. Satan is the best blackmailer. Fear is a great motivator.

Okay seriously how do you motivate yourself not to shop?

to motivate myself not to shop? -- I put up the online shop so that when I shop I'd say it isn't for me but for the shop. :D i'm a cheater.

i love the pile of pearls, denise. and the flow of your dress. :)

not to shop? i try to discipline myself and
understand between wanting and needing. (need vs. want).

nice dress, denise! white is always timeless color
and classy.

I look at my son who will be attending college in 2 years, and that's enough motivation for me to stop shopping (and just be content with what I already own).

Love the dress! I love thrift shopping, too! Oh! And I simply adore those shoes! I want them!!!

Motivation not to shop....hmmmm...I really don't need to have motivation not to shop because where I live there is NOWHERE to shop! NOWHERE! The nearest mall is 1 hour away.

xoxo, Shelly

such a gorgeous dress! $1?? amazing!

Nathalie said...

It's hard to say. I may be able with it if I'm saving, for example, for a very expensive purse that I've dreamed for a long time. Yes, in this way I guess I would be motivate enough with stop shopping!
This dress looks great and I totally agree with you about the malls.

Petitbobun said...

Your dress is amazing ! I love it ! (And I insure you, your pearl necklaces aren't too much !)

I didn't shop for months ! But sometimes, I couldn't help myself to buy something like a pull or a pair of shoes. But that was all !

And my boyfriend and I want to buy an apartment so we've got to save our money...

But at this moment, there're sales !! It's too hard to resist to its appeal ! XD

Velire said...

I dont think the pearls are too much at all..The more the merrier I say :D Hahaha. I adore your dress, it has such a dreamy feel to it. Plus I would definitely wear something like that when out with friends or a date. :)

How do I motivate myself not to shop? Well I just think that there's far more important things to spend on rather than clothes, like food, necessities or charity. :) (If that though fails, I just give my bestfriend or mom my money when we're at the mall..hahaha)

the "not to shop" mantra is quite a hard one hihi, though I haven't shopped for anything since the start of january. You're so lucky naman in thrift shops, the dress is a beauty

Noelle Chantal said...

love the soft and very feminine feel of that thrifted dress Denise. i also love the abandoned place where you had your photos taken.

fadetoblack said...

ove the mix of prints on that purse :)

Gizelle said...

although i love oversized bags, i am really loving the details of your clutch bag..wish i can convert that to a huge one..hehe.

hmmmm, i don't think i motivate myself not to shop...i actually set aside money for thrifting or shoes..but i motivate myself to shop only once a month..and just spike up my excitement over it...hehe.

Love the layering!

Im dealing with the same prob right now, I've been shopping way too much lately that I seriously need to STOP and think if I really really need to buy whatever I am planning to buy. Recently, Ive been compulsively buying accessories, UGH! The dilemma!
