Vintage Mirrors (my weakness)


This is a post about how I totally ruined my spending ban.

Other than a thrifting excursion (which I needed to do for my booth), I had been such a good girl.

No clothing had been purchased.  All of my Starbucks stops were covered with gift cards.  We even had dinner at home every single night in January (with some Saturday exceptions).

I was a spending ban beast.

Then I ran into Relics to check my booth.  And I noticed the booth next to mine had just added the most perfect vintage mirror ever.

A floor length mirror with a gold frame.  I had never seen a vintage floor length mirror............


It basically took zero seconds for me to snatch it up and carry it to the register.

I don't even want to tell you what I paid for it.

I don't even want to talk about how I don't have a spot for it.

I am a loser.

Spending ban restart effective immediately.

  14. Umm, that mirror is PRETTY! And I completely agree with Shanna. You went all throughout January. That's a win! Maybe modify your goal to be no spending except once a month??

  15. It wasn't your fault. No sane person with good taste could resist a mirror like that. Clearly it was meant to be!

  25. I would have grabbed it too. Love mirrors.

  26. I love this! That mirror is so pretty and full length is always better than those tiny rectangular ones where you can't see your whole outfit :)

    Great blog by the way, I'll be back for sure!
