"I have an addiction, sir!"

Quick pic of my new-to-me vintage Chanel backpack... I know I shouldn't have, but I couldn't help myself. Shopping is a legitimate addiction! I've also recently acquired the vintage necklace and bracelet shown above, as well as these *amazing* sunglasses from Seventh Door. What are some of your recent buys? Help me feel like less of an addict!

WOW! I adore that vintage Chanel bag.

Jesspgh said...

What a cool find!

Shopping really is addictive... and sometimes I feel like my blogging only gives me further reason to justify purchases for the sake of "content." haha!

Katie said...

Oh, amazing bag! So jealous. I went out and bought my 3rd dress in 2 weeks today. Oops.

emilypanda said...

yay! you got your backpack! did you get it authenticated?

jessie said...

Yumyummm.

Ashley said...

@Elena S. & Lynzy - I got it off of ebay! There are some great finds there if you dig!

@emilypanda - Yup, I got it authenticated over at The Purse Forum - those ladies are so sweet and soooooo knowledgeable!

And thanks everybody for helping me feel better about spending wayyyyyy too much money on my addiction, lol! :)

Earlier today I bought 3 dresses, a sweater, a shirt, a pair of shoes and perfume, so no worries about your recent purchases. And if I had found a backpack like that, I definitely would have snatched it up!

Amazing vintage score- Chanel to boot!

I just bid on some yellow Tory Burch flats on Ebay AND emailed the seller to see if she'd consider doing a Buy It Now because I really really want them lol. So yes, Hi my name is Jaime, and I'm a shopping addict. :)
