Retail ennui

Is it possible to have retail ennui? A great part of me wanted to sleep in this morning and skip the Black Friday frenzy -- another part of me realized that I had way too many presents to buy. and absolutely nothing else to do on a Friday morning.

As a rare outfit post, today I wore my red dot Bill Blass jacket, silver silk scarf, pearl necklace (thanks Mumsies!), white Gap tank top (okay I admit it, I slept in this top and was too groggy in the morning to change), black Uniqlo skinny jeans, and Sonia Rykiel sandals. Oh, and this Botkier bag. Last year, I foolishly wore heels on Black Friday and practically glared at anyone who made me wait in line.

I had absolutely no interest in buying anything -- I suppose it is because I have everything I need. I'm considering my next investment to be an Anne Fontaine blouse that I tried on and the poor saleslady was trying to tempt me to purchase, but for now I have absolutely no immediate sartorial needs to satisfy. Perhaps I am just too picky for my own good, but I cannot garner the enthusiasm to purchase something unless I can consider it an investment. Well, investment is subjective -- but I can't trick myself into thinking that these Juicy Couture cupcake earrings are an investment. Adorable, perhaps, but my pearls will do for now.
