It’s now October. The weather has turned and soon out will come the sweaters and coats. And I’m okay with that. I made it through August and September without splurging. I cannot lie, I did not go all Puritan, I did buy a pair of shoes. Sue me. But I learned a lot. Basically I learned that money that you have not spent on clothes equates to a few things:
1. a tiny bit more socked into savings
2. more money spent at the grocery store
3. better booze
4. more random crap and eyeshadow
So I guess all I learned from my mini test to myself is that the money will be spent anyways in some way. And that YES you CAN survive without a trip to the thrift store. OH how I missed the thrift store. Basically I think that a good fast from something makes you enjoy and appreciate it that much more when you do not indulge on the regular. I do the week with no TV purge from time to time and it works wonders. I know I enjoyed my shopping trip on Friday, I spent 40 dollars total and got a MASSIVE amount of perfect transitional fall clothes. I know now to stop buying random pieces and start working towards an outfit. I have the next outfit I am buying all planned out. I must start buying in outfits. So I want to start with something like this:
Pair it with a little of this (minus the creepy, half naked doll):
Top it off with some killer pumps and some big hair and BAM. I’m fit to chomp my gum loudly and hail a cab in style.
I posted a question yesterday on my twitter, (Follow me @Lkirk226 if you’re bored), asking what the one thing people would buy fashion wise if money was no object. A Birkin bag was the number one answer. And yes, while I wouldn’t mind one of those, my choice still remains:
Huh. And they even match a pink sweater and leopard skirt. Imagine that.
