The Curse of the Giftcard

Does this happen to anyone else? Me and my younger sister both are experiencing this (and have been for the past several months).

My mother gave both of us gift cards to Smart Set for Christmas last year (as in 2009).  We had both asked for them.  We had both gone shopping several months before several times and loved almost everything we tried on or even saw.  So yay giftcards right? Wrong.  Since then either a) nothing we see tickles our fancy or b) the things we might like don't fit right at all.  It's the curse.

Of course, in the meantime there's all the lovely precious adorable articles of clothing that are in EVERY other store other than the one you have the gift card for. 

There is of course fantastically gorgeous jewelry which I love and want and covet.  But I made the stupid decision to not spend my giftcard on jewelry because I have so bloody much of it already.  I don't wear it that often either.  And I am fully capable of making my own most of the time.  So I don't see the fiscal responsibility in purchasing more (but ooooh how it tempts me).  I may have to give in soon though. 

...but then once I spend my giftcard I shall for sure find something fabulous I want in the clothing section.  Ugh. Such is the curse.
