Last month I challenged myself not to purchase any clothing for 30 days and to just shop in my closet. It was actually pretty easy.
The only time I was seriously tempted to buy anything was last weekend when it was date night and I really wanted to wear something fresh and new.I went through all of my dresses and rediscovered this White House Black Market dress that I had completely forgotten about (pictured above). I tried it on and wasn’t feeling completely confident because it felt just a tad bit short. I showed it to Cory and the look in his eyes told me that the dress was absolutely perfect.
Then I put on my black strappy DKNY heels. I felt fresh and new again. LOL.
I have become more creative with my outfits throughout this process of just shopping in my closet. For example, I’ll wear belts over oversized tops and blouses – something that I rarely do. I know that I’ve also saved quite a bit of money by not purchasing unnecessary clothing.
However, now that the fall season is around the corner (my favorite time for fashion), I’m definitely going to buy new items that I will be featuring in my shop. Stay tuned!
Have you ever done a challenge like this? What was your experience like?
