It’s been ONE year since I shopped for any clothes or shoes and, surprisingly, I got a lot of comments and questions about the topic when I posted about it recently on social media!
The top three comments that I got were:
“You always look like you have something new on, I rarely see you in the same clothes!”
“Why haven’t you shopped/what made you want to do this?”
“I need to do that!”
My answer is simple: I just haven’t had the time to shop. Then, I made it into a little challenge for myself to hold off for one year and to get really creative in my closet with pieces that I already owned! I realized that I already have every color of shoes and a large variety of clothes! I was surprised how fresh and new some of my old outfits looked and felt with new accessories and a different pair of shoes on.
On a side note, I enrolled in business school back in March and it has been all consuming, overwhelming and very exciting! Quite frankly, when I do have an extra hour or two, I’d rather do my BSchool homework, take a long walk with my dog Vinnie or sleep in a bit instead of going to shop!
Well, today my friends, I am sharing with you a short video on what I do have in my closet along with a handful of pieces that I still wear and have had for quite some time.
After watching, I’d love to hear if you’ve ever gone on a shopping hiatus and if not, would you consider it? Let me know in the comments below!
