This weekend I had the opportunity to attend Teen Vogue Fashion University in New York City. It was an amazing weekend of seminars from top designers and editors. I gained so much insight from these people who are so established in the fashion industry. Unfortunately, or fortunately, the weekend had two shopping events. The first night we went to H and M and received a 25% discount. The second night we had a Topshop event where we received a 20% discount. These two events were obviously big temptations and I definitely gave in. I did not buy anything at Topshop, but did at H and M. I did not go too crazy, but I did buy a few things.
Normally, I would not have shopped by now. I was doing well and I know I could have made it through the semester without buying anything. But, this opportunity was too great to pass up. I do not regret shopping. I was so happy to be doing something that I loved again.
From this point on, I will be continuing to forgo shopping. I think it will be easier from now on though because I was able to take a break and stock up on a few new things. I will be honest, shopping was so great and I am so glad that I got to do it, but I really think I will be able to keep on track with the detox from now on.
