Sure, some people frown upon it, but I think that getting yourself a gift is an important part of the birthday celebration.
So, this year, I’ve already taken care of what I’m getting me. Here are the bargains:
1. Mint by Jodi Arnold Sleeveless Dress from The Outnet: I happened to be up for an unrelated reason at 4:00am MST this morning, and was able to catch this sale. If I had other items to choose from, it wouldn’t have been my first choice, but for $1? I’ll take it in a heartbeat. Expect to see it show up in an outfit post soon.
2. April 77 Jeans from YOOX: The company is going out of business. These were $14… and I don’t own any purple jeans. They may be a bit small in a 25, but I’d rather get them and have to give them away. I hate regretting not making a purchase… and I don’t think I’ve ever regretted buying a pair of denim for $14. Or a pair of denim period.
3. BI 4 Black Suede Ankle Boots from YOOX: I need flatter black boots (hell, I needed black boots in general), and these are cute. I’ll probably do some alterations to them – I’m not a huge fan of the little tassle-y things – but I think I can get a bit of wear out of these puppies. And they were $19… always a plus.
4. Rogan Tee from YOOX: This rounded out my YOOX shopping, and while I’m not 100% sure this is the same tee (most of them are gone now…), I do know that I LOVE Loomstate and if Rogan is even slightly similar (after all, Rogan Gregory is the Loomstate co-founder), I’ll be pleased with this purchase.
And that’s it! Those are my birthday gifts to… well, to me!
Do you treat yourself on your birthday? This has become kind of a ritual for me… I always get myself something nice. Granted, I don’t normally get four things, but since all four were less than $50, I don’t feel too bad.
