But it’s exciting and I happily welcome this time of year. One of my many “update” projects includes spicing up my bedroom. I’m happy to welcome Jessica to the blog today, sharing her tips on adding Boho glamour to your room. Continue reading

More than one year after making a public commitment to only buy used clothes, I’m happy to report it is no longer an experiment – it is my lifestyle. 

With the exception of a pair of cat space leggings I bought brand new, I have only purchased used clothing since February 2013. I’m a fairly practical and well – cheap – person so it was a challenge I happily embraced. Continue reading

At the advice of a good pal, I’m keeping track of my spending during my wardrobe resolution.

I’m 9 months in to my challenge and have only purchased one new clothing item – cat space pants from Target. (No explanation needed.)

An Update on My Wardrobe Resolution

It’s been three months since I publicly declared I would only buy used clothes for a year.

I’m checking in and happy to report I’m still stickin’ to it! In fact, just the other day a gal in my work elevator complimented my shoes and wanted to know where I bought them. ‘The Goodwill,” I proudly replied, which was met by uncomfortable silence.

I’ve had a few people ask me since my post in February if the resolution includes underwear.

Abso-effing-lutely not. I will continue to buy new underwear, socks and swimwear. Continue reading
