Retail Therapy...

Ummm - well as you know, I have had a few hic-ups of emotional stress lately and I won't lie...I used retail therapy to soothe my aching heart. It works ...for a few minutes anyway! Here is what I bought:

Fell in love with this jacket when I saw it!

The next 2 items will be altered, if possible, to be used as sidesaddle costume jackets. If, when I get them, I find that they cannot be altered for that - well, I like them enough to just use them as they are!

Thank God for E-bay though. I picked up each of these items for a song. I guess with the slower economy, not as many people are shopping on e-bay.

That pink jacket is gorgeous. Better retail therapy then eating therapy which is what I do. Cheese grits with smoked gouda here I come.

Cute jackets. I use retail therapy sometimes too. I think it helps a lot. Even though it might be a temporary fix.

Beautiful jackets! I'm sure they will look gorgeous on you with your new hair cut. (I just cut over 10" off my hair too. Something I thought I would never do. The hair was donated to Locks of Love and my teen aged kids are seeing me with short hair for the first time in their lives).

I'm so sorry to hear about Chrissy. That was hard.
