I mostly find myself wishing it all just disappeared and that I could start fresh. Wondering why Stacy and Clinton couldn't just throw it all out for me and hand me a credit card. Where is this new emotion coming from? Have I found my threshold for not having something new to wear? Or is the excitement and energy of summer arriving just making me all wanty and dissatisfied?
I shouldn't overreact too much. I'm still having some fun outfitting myself.

On account of my boredom, I made a surprising choice while at the mall recently with my mom. Upon walking through spring/summer 2014 collections, I decided that maybe I've become set enough in my non-shopping ways to handle trying something on without freaking out.
I wanted almost everything I saw. This being the issue that got me in this mess in the first place, and the reason why during the last ten months I have avoided the mall almost completely. I tried on a dozen or so items and these were my thoughts:
- Perk Alert! When you aren't buying, price doesn't matter!
- Curse you Rachel Roy, Kensie and Denim & Supply for having the most wear-worthy, gorgeously designed summer selections
- I really don't miss the feeling of trying on a thousand things and being frustrated or depressed because only one or two things fit (almost) perfectly

Overall my experiment of will power was good. It allowed me to learn a few new things about myself and see how far I've come. And it definitely didn't hurt that I had someone supportive there to help keep me on track!
I came, I saw, I conquered.
