I have this habit of going through phases where I am shopping a lot, but I buy everything on clearance and I won’t even consider buying a shirt for More than $15 or a sweater for more than $20. I decided today, after buying a couple new tops and a pair of white corduroys at Label Shopper earlier in the week, to do one last shop and buy things without being so bargain focused in the hopes of being more satisfied. And with that done, I have challenged myself to buy no new clothing or shoes for 3 months. So the new tops were a gray loft sweater, a gray kind of inside out gap sweatshirt tunic, and then today’s which I took pictures of for this post. I’m going to go through my credit card statements for the last 3 months and add up what I’ve spent on clothing since I have NO idea and make a new plan to spend $150-200 per season on a wardrobe refresher and also to replace items as needed at that time but buying things I love instead of the cheapest possible thing lol.
so here are my getting through winter purchases before the diet begins:
The booties were $20 and the gray sweater was $20 so I wouldn’t normally consider it even though that’s not even expensive!
I am going to also put away in under-the-bed boxes the clothing that I really like but doesn’t fit or I don’t wear often bc it’s more for occasions. And I’m going to do my second huge shoe and clothing purge of the year. I’ve started doing clothing swaps with some girls at work which is fun and also a good excuse to get together and vent and drink champagne. I’m thinking I may try to refashion a couple items as well.
