Dress: old JC Penny Bag/Glasses: MK Belt: F21 Necklace: Amrita Singh Earrings: Francesca's Collections

Happy Monday everyone! You know you are going to have an awesome day when you start your morning out with some kick butt cafe sữa đá, your workout clothes all packed up and most importantly a smile on your face! Bring it on Monday!

I am going on a shopping ban for 4 months. The only reason why I am putting it out there is because so I won't back out on my words. argh so hard when I work right across the mall and they are now displaying cute Fall clothes. Trying to fall in love with all my old clothes again, like this dress. Fun little dress for a hot humid day.

Hope you have a great day!

The True Beauty Files
A lookbook for the modern modeste.
"The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years."

  3. Good goal and good for you. I find that it didnt work to well when i vowed to be on the ban. I chose to not look at online deals/sale/fashion blogs/the latest/the hottest and avoid going to the mall instead. Once i am not used to buying everythibg insight, i start to be better at it as far as think through before each purchase or no purchase at all. It works great as i havent bought a single item since April. No newluck handbag since Julyi 2011. Probably the longest duration i ever go without buying clothes. I will allow myself for some rewards later this month though. Good luck with your shopping ban.

  4. I love we share a love for color;) This is beautiful look on you Yvonne! The jewelry is gorgeous!!

  12. owie!! Shopping ban for 4 months?! wow.
    Even though it sounds really really intimidating to do, I'm sure that everyone really could do it. Good luck and I'm sure that you'll do great!

  13. Okay, this needs to be said ... LOVING that turquoise jewelry on you!!!! You know, I really need to go on a shopping ban ... perhaps I'll join you? 4 months sounds reasonable but I hear you on the Fall clothes, Fall is simply the BEST fashion season. Perhaps rather than a ban, we could talk budget? :) xxCat

  14. 4 months! I need to hear how you do. I couldn't do it in the favorite season to shop. It's the boots...they get me every time.
    My neighbor's just left for Virginia yesterday! I believe that's your home state, yes?
