Last Haul before the Ban

I told my husband before I left for New York that after I got back, I would put myself on a shopping ban. He chimed in that it should be a 6-month shopping ban. That's probably fair. Here are the spoils of my last shopping hurrah until August (if I make it that long), including my purchases in NYC and my Prabal Gurung for Target order.

Aerial New York and Eiffel Tower socks from Topshop $5 each

Sweater from Uniqlo $30

Skirt from Uniqlo $30

Chanel nail polish in Dragon from Macy's $29, $4 after using a gift card!

Bracelet from Michael Kors $95, my splurge item

Silk blouse from Christian Siriano $40, 75% off!

Marc Jacobs fabric from Mood $70

T-shirt from Mood $16

Short-sleeve dress in First Date print from Prabal Gurung For Target $40
I adore this dress. Some of the reviews online said you don't have very good range of motion in the arms, which is true and weird that it's designed that way, but it fits me so perfectly otherwise that I don't really care. So yeah, I'm going to wear this every day this summer.

Red wedge sandal with ankle strap from Prabal Gurung for Target $30
These are pretty cute, and they look good with the dress. I think I'll get some good use out of them.

Yellow flat sandal from Prabal Gurung for Target $30
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE! These are so me. I love them.

Mulicolor Nolita print hard-sided clutch from Prabal Gurung for Target $35
That's all it would close with my phone inside. I had a feeling that would be the case. I loooove the print, though. It's a really cute clutch for you cool iPhone users.

Ugh, I'm not going to total that up because it would probably make me dry heave. Well, at least I get $35 back after I return the clutch thanks to my huge, stupid phone, haha. How'd you guys like the Prabal Gurung for Target collection? Did you get everything you wanted?


  1. Oooh I like those red sandals!

  2. A shopping ban doesn't sound like fun :( At least you got some fun things. Love the socks!

  3. The dress looks cute on you! I'm glad to hear and see it worked for you! The shoes!!! LOVE!!
    Best of luck on the ban!

  4. I love the new collection. I am on the hunt for the red sandals you bought! Sounds like you had a great time shopping in New York. I cannot wait to hear more about your trip.

  5. Did you feel that the flat sandals in yellow ran true to size?

    1. Yes, I think they do. I normally wear a size 10, and the size 10 of those sandals fit perfectly. I have wide feet, and the sides of my feet may be spilling over the side slightly in the photo above, but not to the point of any of the straps digging in. They were really comfortable for the 20 minutes I wore them around the house.

  6. I am beginning to think you have shopping bulimia. I just made the term up.

    1. Totally, binge and purge. It's a thing. Or if it's not, it should be.

  7. That PG dress looks AMAAZAAAZING on you! So flattering, I can't wait to see it with the shoes.
