It's been a while since I've worn any really bold or deep colours, and it's been a really long while since I've worn this cute lil shirtdress....so long in fact that I'm listing it for sale since it's only been gently worn and hardly ever sees the light of day. Also, these boots are really cool and I love them, but since moving to a place that requires a LOT of walking everywhere, I've come to terms with the fact that they are actually really too small for comfort.
this is what happens when you don't find a job for 6 months.....you desperately hope to live off of your potential closet sales and food stamps....woo...hoo.
shirtdress: for sale!
boots: for sale!
On a more optimistic note I think I am going to declare an actual goal of not buying any new clothes for a long time. I have a lot of them. I know I have enough to get me through a long period without even doing laundry....and I have enough to mix and match for months probably. Even thrifting here in New York is ridiculously overpriced and unaffordable for us.
So just for the sake of me being able to see a road ahead of me, I think I'm going to say... four months....let's see if I can go four months without buying anything. I realize that sounds pretty short and silly to a lot of people, and I'm not even a huge spender or anything, but I do buy little things here and there pretty consistently.... especially at thrift stores or online, and for the past three and a half weeks I've been proud of myself for really avoiding it. And that needs to continue as we try to make end's meet and I keep hunting for a job. So we'll see how four months goes, and then see if I can keep going! This is a serious challenge! here I go! hold me to it, people!
