Today while putting some clothes away I came to a realization... I spend A LOT of money on things that I end up not liking after only a few months. It seems like I can never dress myself in something that I totally 100% love and I end up giving most of my clothes away. It really disgusts me how much money I have wasted since I graduated college almost 7 (!) years ago. I did some quick math and estimated I have probably wasted over $10,000 on crap I didn't really love or even need. I wish I had saved that money!!!!
I am turning over a new leaf. First of all, I am giving up shopping for Lent. If you are a regular reader of my blog you know that I "give up" shopping a lot. This time I am sticking to it, though. Easter is April 4 this year so I have about 5 weeks to go. Also, when I am allowed to shop again, I am only going to buy classic items that I truly love. On my wish list are a trench, simple gold hoop earrings and a gold watch, a navy blue one piece suit for the summer, and a beautiful bottle of perfume.
Do any of you have the same views about your closet? Are there any classic pieces that you cannot live without?
