Oh hey, it’s me again. The girl who may or many not have ordered three pairs of shoes today. And a pair of pants last night. And two pairs of pants and shirt the night before. And a bag. Yikes. THAT sounds bad. In my defense (in case the husband is reading, which he never does!), I do shop very cheaply and loveeeeeee getting a lot of things for less. I am just not an expensive clothes/accessories person. Not that I wouldn’t run straight out and buy those $895 Valentino studded heels or that Celine bag if I struck it rich tomorrow. The point is, I have somehow shopped my little heart out the past week and feel it is probably time for another shopping hiatus. I do this periodically to help me appreciate what I have more and to…um, stop shopping so much? Yes. That’s why.
I’ve been on sort of a blood lust for Fall type clothes lately as I haven’t seen that season since 2001 (my senior year in college, yikes that was awhile back…) I bought this Camo jacket from Nordstrom and this studded cardigan from Windsor and these pants because they are cute and I don’t need a reason for cute, right?
On to my proposition, which is more for myself, but feel free to join in. I am NOT going to shop for myself in during the month of August as I have an abundance of clothes coming in the mail as well as what is already in my closet. I am going to use everything I bought and style it three different ways to stretch it out and force me to dress more creatively. I think I may photograph my new stuff for you and then style it and keep track of the number of times I wear it. Sound good? I say this to you because you are good for accountability sakes and you have my permission to call me out if I slack off. Publicly:) Sound good?
That’s my plan.
What do you think? Do you use everything in your closet, or do you get bored like me and keep buying new stuff?
P.S. On an unrelated note, have you noticed that if you buy Fifty Shades of Grey or the Bared to You series (soooooo good!), Amazon will only suggest erotic and filthy books to you? I mean, does Amazon think I’m a closet freak now? Don’t answer that.
