I Need Strength


About a month ago, I began to stock up on fall clothing. So far I have bought sweaters, hats, scarves, and long pants with my hard earned work money. Yet, I still feel unprepared for the fall because of one little thing. I don't have this Dolce Vita Leather Bomber Jacket. I found it on the Urban Outfitters website and went ballistic because I had to have it. Being the impulsive online shopper that I am, I put it in my shopping cart. After some more browsing, I thought I had done enough and double checked what I already had in my shopping cart. Everything seemed fine until I looked at the final price of $632. I was shocked and made sure I had only put one of everything in my basket. I had. So why the high price of it all? This Dolce Vita Leather Bomber Jacket was $495. I immediately clicked it out of my basket and continued to buy my other clothes.
But now, I am still wanting this jacket with a passion and have been trying to save my money for it. Every time I go to the mall, I end up buying something else "I had to have." Only $350 to go.

I can understand how you want that jacket, it really is beautiful. The colour, especially, is stunning. I think you should just go ahead and get it, even if it is expensive. Things that you REALLY want generally seem to be worth it, and you'd love it for years. Maybe it's a good investment?
