Splurge

I hate spending money. I've said this many times before. I hardly ever buy new clothes, and when I do, they're second-hand or on mega-sale. That's why it's so shocking that I would spend a moderate-to-high amount on a dress. BUT IT'S SO CUTE I COULDN'T HELP IT.

I'm not saying how much it was, partly because I still feel a little guilty, and partly because when you hear the number, you'd probably say "wow, that's really what you're worried about? That's not even a big deal." I'm so weird, seriously. My friends put some serious peer pressure on me, because this is just about my perfect dress - favorite colors, style, everything. AND it was on sale.
