265 days to go: 100 days of not buying any new clothes
Yey! I have managed 100 whole days without buying any new clothes.
I am feeling good.
I am feeling smug.
I am able to trawl around the shops without wanting to buy everything in sight.
In fact what I see in the shops now are drab.
Just today on my way home from work I popped into TK Maxx to try and buy some new tights (all my old ones have holes and I am allowed to buy hosiery) and there they were racks and racks of Christmas Party clothes.
Several things put me off.
1. The styles.
2. The colours
3. The fact that there were rails and rails of the same thing.
I did stop to admire a knitted corsage on a hat but I was scrutinising it to see how I could recreate it at home with my oddments of wool.
It is official I am becoming thrifty.
My grandmother would be so proud of me.
As for today - it's pink again.
In fact I think I will pink it up for the whole of the week.
jeans - Gap
Shoes - Tesco
Black Shirt - Boden (dyed)
Cashmere Tank (as yesterday)
Pink Scarf - marks and Spencer
