Anywhoo, last week the Anonymous Husband announced his intentions to resume this Lenten tradition - in his case, sacrificing his favorite swear word (yes, only one of us is a prude here at Pretty HQ) - which caused me to ponder whether I should join in too. I realized over the weekend that some of that online noise I've been stressing about was thanks to my shopping- nothing too excessive, mind you, but I've admittedly been paying more attention lately to whatever flash sale was up that day than whether I - or Master P, or the AH - really needed the item in question. We're fortunate enough to be set stuff-wise for the time being.
And so from this day forward I'm giving up the shopping full stop, be it online or otherwise, from now until Easter, and resolving to do a better job of shopping my own closet in the meantime. I won't bore you with the step-by-step of that, but I did have fun poring over some items I'd forgotten about and pulling out some old new favorites over the weekend:
|At the Poshmark party, in vintage dress & Steve Madden clutch|
|At the tailor's doing my best "Angelina" in my *jazz hands* Princess Shinylocks / Zara dress|
Fear not, darlings - I'll continue to post style nonsense here and fantasy shop over at Pinterest per usual, as well as any mentioning any noteworthy purchases that were ordered pre-Lent (*cough* driving mocs *cough*). I just won't be weighing the cost of my child's future HarvarYalStanPrinceMouth college education vs. whatever bag I'm coveting.
Anyone else giving up something for Lent and/or striking silly poses in tailor shops?
