Addicted

Hello my name is Natalie and I am addicted to virtual shopping. You know, where you fill up your online shopping cart with all the items you want to buy and then debate and debate and never buy them. I love to online shop but now that I am not working and staying at home with my little angel we are on a tight budget (I never liked budgets). I am trying to be responsible which is not fun especially when you love clothes as much as I do. So, it is virtual shopping for me most of the time. Here are a few things that have been sitting in my carts unpurchased.

From Shopbop:
DVF OLVIA DRESS



DVF CARPREENA MINI




REBECCA TAYLOR CARNATION FOREST BLOUSE




TIBI OCELOT LONG DRESS




From Saks
SEE BY CHLOE RUFFLE MINI DRESS



GUCCI LEATHER WALLET




From Net a Porter
MILLY LEAH PRINT MAXI DRESS





TUCKER PRINTED SILK BLOUSE

Please tell I am not the only one that does this! For some reason it makes me feel like the item is mine even though I don't order it. I have found it is better to think on purchases for a few days to determine if you really love the item. Half the time I put the stuff in my cart and go back and say wow, I didn't love that anyways. BTW can you tell I love online shopping for blouses and dresses? They are my two favorite things to buy.

I am the exact same way. I just love online shopping way too much. So I choose things and then let them sit. And btw, we have some seriously similar taste, love everything!!

Speaking of online shopping, I'm the same way. By the way, have you seen Norstrom's La Mer's Anniversary Sale set. I know youre into La Mer as much as I am. It's a great deal, plus, if you buy $50 more of La Mer products, you get an amazing La Mer gift with purchase. Just ordered it yesterday, since Charlotte's Nordstrom doesn't carry La Mer.

okay, just looked online, first off that TIBIndress is not there, the short version is , but not the long one. second, HOLY SHIT! lol Your price points are much higher then mine! lol But I really want that and probably would not eat/shop/go out to save up and get it!!! ;)

Becca said...

I feel your pain! Online shopping is a weakness of mine and being on a budget doesn't help. Great choices though, I can understand how it would be torture to not buy them...all of them!

Gosh, so much to love here...love the blouses and the long dress! Love! :)

Taylor said...

I am the exact same way... I have a non-existant budget and yet almost everyday I am on online looking at dresses!! Even in the dead of winter, dresses, dresses, dresses! Shopbop is my biggest weakness ever!

Natalie said...

Aah I can so relate, I am the worst online shopper! I love that maxi dress and those blouses! Gorgeous.

Val said...

I share your same addiction and I love it.

Kyle said...

Blouses and dresses all the way! Tucker is one of my favorite brands and I probably have too many Rebecca Taylor tops. I always seem to gravitate towards her designs.

P.S. I found Flip Flop wines at a small liquor store in my parent's town. We tried the Pinot Noir last night. Delicious served slightly chilled. Thanks for the tip, Natalie!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

I love doing this...it's pretty much the only way for me to keep my own shopping impulses in check...for some odd reason, it's therapeutic (c: That Tucker blouse would be *VERY* hard to resist...so GORGEOUS!

Sara Mueller said...

I do that a lot too! I was just looking at the DVF website.

Mama L said...

WOW, I just love that maxi Tibi dress with long sleeves. Stunning! Might have to virtual shop that one too! The only things I EVER buy online, are onesies for Sticky Baby. The rest, I deem too much of a splurge...so I'm feeling you, sista!

Happiness Is... said...

Just found your blog and love it! I have a baby boy too :)

tina.b said...

Same... I also have a serious addiction to Tucker blouses.

Gaby [The Vault Files] said...

Oh! if I got everything I have placed on a shopping cart we would be ruined by now! I love online shopping, I get so many things, tops, jeans, swimwear, shoes, you name it!
Great picks ;)

Chassity (Look Linger Love) said...

Ha! Story of my life. You are not alone my friend.

Nicole said...

I do that all.the.time. Oh the sacrifices of staying at home with the little guys...but SO worth it! :)

Good evening from Tokyo!

Goodness where to start...you've made a wonderful list of "lusted-after lovelies". Tucker has my heart, though, and hopefully when we move back to the States this month I'll be able to see this gem up close and personal.

My best to you!

Warmly,

Elizabeth

Haha, yes, do this all the time! I enjoy putting anything and everything that I want in my virtual shopping bag and then trying to see if I can cut it down.

Baby Shopaholic said...

I love everything!!! That TIBI is SICK! I need it!

Carly said...

You are def NOT the only one...we all do this.

Rebecca Taylor is one of my favs..and I rarely purchase w her anymore..I used to be the RT specialist when I worked at Bloomie's..and then time passed and I just kind of "forgot" about her..
thanks for the reminder...my absolute FAVORITE pink trench coat is by her ...and it is beautiful!
