Fashion Fast 2011
Hello, my name is Jeniese and I am a shopaholic. Yep I'm hooked. I love the phrases "your package has been dispatched", "50% off clearance" and "new items posted". Everyday I peruse my favorite stores, websites, and blogs looking for new and exciting things (usually to buy). I find myself wanting more and more. By all standards I receive at least 1 package a week.Yes, I can admit that I have a problem. But now it must stop, I have to stop feeding the beast.
I don't know what changed my mind. It could be the various and asundrious pairs of shoes that I bought in the month of December. It could be because every time I comb through my closet I find something else that I forgot that I purchased. All I know is that I want to take some time and enjoy the things I have. Relish in my closet and focus on challenging myself to style what already there. So for the next 31 days I am going to attempt not to purchase any clothes. YES I said it I am NOT going to purchase any clothing for the next 31 days. I am going to wear what is in my closet, and I am going to focus on other things. Things like getting manis and pedis, buying new make-up, learning how to thrift, styling other people and finally organizing my tear sheets.
This month I am going to post OOTD post of things that I have been meaning to photograph for the past few months. Some of my favorite bloggers show you great ways re-wear items in your wardrobe over and over. I want to try my hand at all of this. So I need all of your help to stick this out, and stay the course. I have already failed today because I logged onto Forever 21 and bought back the black floral culottes from last summer and I had to have them. This is going to be a long month.
P.S. I am so totally excited about winning one of the The Curvy Fashionista 2nd Anniversary contest. I won a piece of DAMN YOU ALEXIS CLOTHING!!!! So excited! Here is a bright spot in my no shopping saga! Anyone want to guess what piece I picked out? I can't wait to show everyone!
