Aire-Flo

A few of my blogger companions are on what they call 'shopping bans'. I personally don't know how they have the will power. Shopping is how I spend my days (not to mention my money). Just last week I went shopping and spent almost my whole paycheck on a vintage 60s purse, an American Apparel bodysuit, a 60s dress, and a lovely cameo brooch. I shouldn't complain about how much I shop, though. It's what I do. It keeps me entertained and I have loads of fun doing it. Shopping is a girl's best friend.
shirt: Rilo Kiley concert tee (the concert blew my mind!) * skirt: Urban Outfitters clearance * shoes: Ked's

I've had the honour of receiving the Premio award from Sam, blogger extraordinaire at The Wandering Alchemist, and Isabel from Hipster Musings. Thank you so much!The rules state that I must now tag 7 other bloggers with this 'Brillinte' award.

I am going to give this award to The Snail and The Cyclops for always inspiring me to dress a little bit differently;
To The Clothes Horse for being the first person to comment on my blog and give me the courage to continue on;
To Hipster Musings for being the girl that inspired me to start my own blog;
To Rouge Marie for always commenting with wonderful and kind words;
To Sally Jane Vintage for having great style, fantastic photographs, and an eBay store brimming with amazing goods;
To Dapper Kid who always has something nice to say, and is full of fashion wisdom;
and to Alice Point for being a stylish fille.

i'm on a shopping ban right now! but mostly because i'm living in a city that only has surf shops and roxy and tacky boardwalk stuff, so i don't really have anywhere to buy clothes. it's going to be fairly easy!

Sally Jane said...

Thanks so much! You're so sweet ot include me in your list.

Dapper Kid said...

Looooove the skirt!! And the shopping bans are indeed insane, I guess I'm technically on one...but because I have no money! Thank you so so so so much for tag, may I just say I LOVE your blog :)

I absolutely agree. I can't do a shopping ban. It's like food, if you prohibit yourself from eating what you love, you end up binge eating.

Love your blog.
