Things I must resist

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.
-  A longtop by Queen of Darkness. Speaks for itself.
 - A litte black dress by Queen of Darkness. I love the doll-like quality it has!

 - A really nice v-neck top by Queen of Darkness:
 - Flower dress in fifties style by King Louie:

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!

8 opmerkingen:

  1. Nice:D vooral dat gele jurkje en die daaronder zijn erg mooi:O

  2. Het gele jurkje wordt echt héel moeilijk om niet te kopen, haha. :) Ik vind 'm ook het mooist van de lijst.

  3. Of je doet net als mij (althans ik doe een poging) zeg maar 1 ding kopen per maand ipv 3 om mee te beginnen, want om meteen aftekicken van kleding kopen is ook zo heftig meteen:P XD

  4. Just wanted to let you know that I've nominated you for a "Stylish Blogger" award. =]

    You can find the meme here:

    Feel free NOT to participate though. Awards are sometimes a blessing and a curse, haha.

    Have a wonderful day and keep up the good work!

  5. @ Joyce: Héeeel verleidelijk idee moet ik zeggen, maar ik ga toch streng voor mezelf zijn. :D Bij mij werkt het meestal juist het beste om echt helemáal niet toe te geven, omdat ik anders al gauw denk 'och, éen kledingstuk per maand kunnen er ook best twee zijn' en dan verval ik al gauw weer in mijn oude gewoontes. Hopelijk kan ik na een jaar afkicken wel alles goed onder controle houden en inderdaad maar eens per maand iets kopen. :)

    @ScarySweetheart: Thanks for the nomination! :)I've only just started bloggin so I know close to nothing about such awards, but I'm going to check it out. I feel honored. :)

  6. Ja zo kan je het ook bekijken natuurlijk:p het gaat je wel lukken :D

  7. Ik ben verliefd op flower dress - helemaal ik!

  8. @Magdalena: ik zag dat er weer nieuwe dingen van King Louie uit zijn voor de voorjaarscollectie. Je kent de site misschien al lang, maar anders moet je zeker hier eens kijken voor nog meer jurkjes in die stijl:
