A Fashionista’s Worst Nightmare: Redux

15 Oct

One of my first posts to this blog was about how I needed to clean out my closet and get rid of a lot of clothes I never wear anymore.

Well, that hasn’t happened yet. In fact, the opposite of that has happened. Thrift Store Therapy has always been my Prozac, so the fact that I’ve acquired three new dresses, two pairs of shoes, and a sweater shouldn’t surprise anyone. In my defense, none of them were over $4 apiece! And the things I bought at work shouldn’t even count, since between coupons, discount deals, and employee discount benefits, nothing was more than $4 there, either (including the most awesome blue plaid flannel from Guess. I feel like I beat the system on that one; originally it was $90!) I’m not going to mention the seven pairs of awesome fishnet tights I got, since each of them was only a dollar on clearance at Nordstrom Rack anyway.

I’m clearly not very good at curbing my clothing spending, but at least I am phenomenal at maximizing the bang for my buck, right? …Right? SomeonepleasejustifythemoneyIbegyou. Ahem.

On the other hand, I am on the verge of throwing out my only pair of jeans, since they are way too big now. I don’t know if I bought them big, or if I’ve actually lost more of my already lacking booty, but they don’t even remotely fit anymore. And I should try on my slacks soon, since I’ve not worn them in ages, but should with the upcoming colder weather.

Overall, I have put a dozen items in my “Give-Away Basket,” not that I’ve given them away yet. But since I haven’t taken anything out of it all summer, I feel like I’ve already gotten rid of them. And that’s good, right?
