I do! I shopped! I said YES!

You may remember my gorgeous hunky boyfriend who featured a couple of times in my blog last year, well he asked me to marry him and I said YES! And I have been saying yes a lot more this year …

Thanks to all my new followers who have told me they have been inspired to try not shopping for a bit. It really is only hard for a little while, I promise ๐Ÿ™‚

And for me, it finally happened! After a year and a half of not shopping and putting new clothes on the very next day I can finally do it. You’re right, you’re right, I did shop in May last year at the outlets in America but it all went into a bag and lived in the top of the wardrobe till January 1 this year so as not to add to my 2012 wardrobe for my year of mixing and matching and no repeat outfits.

I found it really hard to break the no shopping habit. I have tried on lots of things including a really great Karen Millen dress at Myer 2 weeks ago. It cost $169 and I told myself I could buy it once I had sold some clothes. After making just $27 at the car boot sale I just couldn’t justify it! But yesterday was uni market day so prices were more affordable and I could put it on the very next day. So here it is, my first new item worn the very next day in one year and 5 months.

And I’m happy to say, the people who shopped at the car boot sale got some great bargains and the RSPCA got 4 bags of clothes – some to sell and some to use for animal bedding. Even better, my gorgeous boyfriend became my FIANCร‰ and his clothes fit in the cupboard with mine ๐Ÿ™‚
