So I kind of sort of cheated on my whole not shopping for new clothes challenge, but not really. See what happened is that I saw this dress online yesterday and really liked it, then today we went to @Target and I saw it in person and still really liked it. I showed it to my husband and told him how much I liked it and he said, "Then get it." To which I replied, "I can't. I'm not buying any clothes right now." Can I help it that the man bought it for me? It would have been rude not to accept his thoughtful gift and I may be on clothing shopping fast, but I'm not on a good manners fast. I gratefully accepted the gift and immediately put it on. So you see, I didn't REALLY cheat on my no buying new clothes for myself challenge. Regardless, I've been on the challenge since January and this is the first item of clothing that was truly hard for me to resist, which tells me that I really wanted it and it isn't something that I got on a whim and will languish in my closet.

  • byclaudya@lacocinadeleslie My mother taught me it was impolite not to accept a gift when someone is going out of their way to be nice.
  • byclaudya@ohtinymylo Stay away from my shoes, Mylo.
  • byclaudya@guapologa Gracias, you should see the ugly shoes I paired it with.
  • byclaudya@biculturalfamilia Thank you. I kind of love it. This dress and I are going to have a great spring and summer together.

  • bbwgenerationBut the dress, eat the cake and drink the tequila! 🍸 What I do is donate or sell an item to replace in my closet. Life is SHORT... Grab it by the fistfull.
  • byclaudya@bbwgeneration I eat the cake and drink the tequila. The shopping fast is more about saving time and money as well as being more thoughtful and deliberate. I already own a lot of great clothes that get ignored because something new catches my eye and I want less stuff in general. I don't want a closet and drawers that are exploding with stuff anymore.
  • bbwgenerationI LOVE Fashion ❤ in PLUS size it is slowly morphing in to beauty (decades behind) each season. Its great to live in this moment. Replacing an item (or a Few) is a great way to not live in excess and with little to no budget needed.
  • lacocinadeveroLove that dress! Siempre tan linda!
