183 and 182 days to go: Halfway There!!!

Who'd have thought back in the balmy days of July when I made a mad pledge NOT to buy any new clothes for a year that I would stick to my guns?
I don't think I was convinced myself?
But with a bit of creative engineering (selling clothes on ebay and using the credit to acquire new ones, getting gift cards for Christmas and gifts from friends and fellow bloggers (Karen!) I have eked out my not inconsiderable wardrobe.
I might not always have achieved my aim of dressing stylishly but I have had great fun experimenting.

These are the latest offerings:

Jeans - Joe Brown
Top - Dorothy Perkins
Vest - eBay
Shoes: Clark's
Necklace - Top Shop

Dress, brooch, belt, boots and tights - Dorothy Perkins
Cardigan - Primark

That vest is way too cute on you!!! I love it!

see you there! said...

I don't think I've seen that striped vest or the knockout necklace before. Good combo.

Congrats on making in 1/2 way. It may get easier as the weather turns nicer. Or Not???

Thanks guys! I bought the necklace in February 2004 and the vest is a new item from eBay!

Erm, what's this vest thing then? Looks like a short cardi or a waistcoat to me! I really like that outfit though, very funky.

Btw, well done of making it to the halfway mark. Keep going!

I LOVE the way you made the little black dress positively pop with all of the pink. Those pink tights are fabulously brave.
