It turned out to be a lot harder to confine myself to the necessary items that I planned to buy during the sales. The silly thing is, I bought only one of them; new pants, at H&M. But then I continued to buy some things I didn't really need, like a very lovely lace tunic at a store called SPS (Superstar), which had a 70% discount. I did search for the other items on my wish list, but just couldn't find them for a reasonable price. Oh well, I'll survive without them. I also received an order that I had placed a couple of weeks ago at a postorder company called Large. Both tops are pretty basic (just what I needed!), yet lovely:
The hardest part of my challange has only just begun...resisting to buy any new clothing at all for an entire year! Since I've run out of budget for January, I have decided to already start the challange. Despite the sales, I managed to stay away from clothing stores during this first week and I'm starting to think it might not be as hard as it seems. I did find out that two of my favorite brands have the first items of their new collection in store though...and of course they're all so pretty, argh!
These are some of the clothes I will need to resist buying:
- Black/yellow dress by Pussy Deluxe. A really cool item for summer! It's black, but quite sunny as well because of the daring yellow stripes.
Either I'll have to keep on dreaming or find a way to to make similar clothes myself.... I wish I had more time to do the latter!
