Sometimes just to get away from the pressures, worries and concerns of daily life or when there is just a lot going on, I browse Jjill, Talbots, Ralph Lauren etc. and just looking at clothes restores me to an inner calmness nothing else in the world can do. Ofcourse, there is meditation but it is so difficult to meditate and so easy to browse and shop clothing sites even for many hours at a time! Sometimes this results in going over the budget and ending up with more clothes than one really needs. I call it the dress that hangs. :) Since I have overspent, I hang the dress in the closet with tags and all and look at it many times in the day trying to decide whether to keep it or not! The heart says to keep it because it is so gorgeous and will make me look so beautiful for that dinner party the coming weekend but the mind says, "send it back, you have overspent!" Ofcourse I already have too many clothes and I should really send it back but I don't have this dress and it's just too pretty! What shall I do? Sounds familiar? What do you guys do?:)
