This is the the blog of Jenny Montgomery. She has lost track of what this blog is about.
Did I just splurge on a coat I don’t have funding for?  Technically - yes.  But here’s the thing, I fell in love with this coat yesterday and today it went on sale.  That means it was meant to be, right?  And, after all, isn’t that what savings accounts are for - luxury wardrobe staples at a bargin?  No one was ever sent to the poor house for buying a coat.  
And I tried to do the responsible thing, I went to J. Crew to try it on.  Did I buy another shirt while I was in there?  Yes - but that’s besides the point.  They didn’t even have that coat there for me to try on.  But I talked to the sales woman and she was kind enough to look up who did have it - no one. And she noted there were only 30 left in my size for purchase online. 30 left for the whole world!  
I am just not prepared to live with that kind of regret.
