Hi Fashionistas ,
Hope everyone had a great weekend , I spent mines relaxing but on saturday ,i hosted with a few friends a vision board party which was so much fun but i will tell you more about that in another post coming this week.
Now i know you are wondering Drea what is with the topic. Being a fashion blogger for the last four years has been amazing but it can also place a dent in your closet from time to time due to you always wanting to keep up with the lastest fashions and just having it all. For me i just love fashion period and i think working at my previous job which was in child welfare and very stressful at the time , shopping was a way to release my stress and other triggers.
Now that i am at a different environment and also want to change my style , i have been doing clothing purges. I am going through everything from clothing, bags to shoes. Most is being donated and others i am planning to sell on my poshmark account. Now there are some items that i give to close close friends but that it is it.
I am also thinking about doing a closet sale but need to figure out exactly how that will work. I know i was told i should do a clothing swap which i think is nice but the previous ones ive been to in the past i was not impressed by lol.
So starting February 1 i am going on a no shopping spree , meaning only buying things that i need not the things that i want because i have enough at this time ( more than enough). I already have an accountability partner and im excited . I do not know how long i will plan to do the no shop for maybe till my vacation coming up which is in July so that will be four months. I can do it no pressure. I will check in and keep everyone updated on how well i do.
So what do you ladies and gentlemen think, have you done a no spend and if so how did it work out for you. I would love to hear your thoughts. Until next time.
Whelp! You already know I’ve cut back and I’ve been purging since December and I’m STILL purging… I haven’t spent anything outside of necessity it clothes shopping. *Nope, I’ve been trying to wear what’s in my closet*
So far, no complaints… it’s been going well; I just STAY away from the Mall. Lol
Yes girl i know you been doing it and that was my motovation to do it and keep going. Im not going to lie it is hard but i figure im very busy so there will be no need for me to buy anything really even down to shoes. So i will do my best especially if i do not need it.
