I don't feel bad that I went off the GAAD to get things that I know I'll wear, things that I actually needed. I also bought a wool/mohair skirt and a pair of wool trousers (Christian Dior for $3!) at a rummage sale. I felt so good buying something useful that I was immediately reminded of the feeling behind why I went on the GAAD in the first place. It turns out that even practical purchases can have the same feel-good effect on me. It would be so easy, oh so easy, to just keep buying now.

These are possibly my favourite earrings of all time. I got them in the mail from Modesty is Pretty, who just happened to think of me when she found the earrings at a garage sale - how sweet is that! I absolutely love the earrings, as did a waitress at a restaurant yesterday. She kept staring at me, and finally said: "I am sorry, I have been trying to figure out what those earrings were, and oh my, they are kitties! How cute!" I couldn't have agreed more.

2. In terms of what types of clothes I get a lot of wear out of, there is an undeniable comfort factor that I should take into consideration more often when buying something new. I like having pretty stuff in my wardrobe, but if it is not comfortable, it will not get a lot of wear, no matter how much I like it.
3. I should pay more attention to the colours I buy. A lovely piece in the wrong colour will not be worn. Sometimes an odd piece with the right colour works.
