(3/11: I had to change the blog title because this post was getting too many spam comments.)
In high school, a friend told me that she wasn't going to buy clothes for a year because her older sister did it and said it was liberating and saved her a ton of money. I couldn't even imagine going an entire year without purchasing F21 skinnies or a thrift store dress. However, I've been looking at my closet lately and thinking I'm relatively happy with it. So No (Buying) Clothes 2013 it is!
++If I get gift cards or birthday money, I can use it to buy clothes.
++I can make myself clothes. I need to learn to use my sewing machine.
++If I become pregnant, I am allowed to buy maternity clothes. Especially pants. I went for a long time without wearing maternity pants when I was pregnant with Ezra, but they are SO worth it.
++If I find an amazing gray/white/black tee for a good price I can get it because I have been looking for two years.
++I can buy accessories like shoes, necklaces, etc.
++If there is just the most amazing dress or skirt at a thrift store, I am allowed to buy it because those things don't happen every day. But the limit is one every three months.
Guys, this is going to be really hard for me because I really enjoy clothes and thrift stores and mixing and matching patterns and textures.
Wish me luck. Jeff is behind this 100%. Probably because it means we won't go to the mall very often.
However, if you are not making this goal, please check out these fashion blogs. I found these cute girls right after I decided to do this and I almost took it back because they have my dream closets. Finally found fashion bloggers that I love and I'm not going to buy clothes for a year. Figures.
