Forum shopaholics have been giving their wallets a workout, picking up items in nudes, blushes, earth tones, and nature-inspired prints. Here are some highlights from last week’s shopping splurges.

BibiRose stuck to light, romantic hues, buying this lovely blush-toned pussybow blouse and this short, micro-pleated, cream-colored dress with sheer elbow-length slightly puffed sleeves. Both items are from 

Jil Sander Men's button-up - forum buysAsos fruit tank top - forum shopaholics purchase

Taking a cue from nature, Ives927 “finally jumped the gun,” and purchased this Jil Sander short-sleeved button-up shirt. His indulgence has me leaning toward a splurge of my own, as I find myself coveting some lovely flower-printed Jil Sander flats that cost a lot more than I should be spending. I’ve managed to keep them out of my online shopping cart… so far.

Marmoset went on a tank top buying binge that included this fruity Stella McCartney-inspired top from This top is a nice alternative that won’t set you back as much as the real thing. I like how the fruit print almost seems to form a lush bib necklace.

While many of us are trying to shed our layers for spring, Belowen is gearing up for fall and winter across the globe in Australia. A leopard print scarf in red seems like it will be a fun addition to her wardrobe.  

POCKETKITTEN bought this Mango maxi dress in earthy russet tones for a wedding this summer. Initially unsure of how to style it, fellow Fashion Spot forum members advised her to keep it simple and pair the dress with some nude pumps or sandals. Like I said, nude shoes look good with almost everything, don't they?
