Outfit 17 July (and shopping ban)

17 July 2009

Worn for birthday drinks. I initially was going to wear the bottom outfit, but while I was in the process of taking pics, it started chucking it down, so I added tights, and more waterproof shoes (plus a decidedly unsexy waterproof jacket).

dress – skunkfunk
vest top – zara, bought especially to make this dress less indecent, after the excessive boobiness when I wore it before.
beads – gift
shoes – schuh
pink shoes I would have worn – charity shop

I don’t think I mentioned that I’ve put myself on a shopping ban until Christmas. I think the people tree shopping spree made me realise that I’ve been letting my standards slip a bit in tertms of buying new, and I’ve been accumulating too much stuff. We’re also trying to save up for a long haul holiday and Dave is trying to pay off some car-related debt, so I’m trying to support him by not buying stuff either.

The rules of the ban are:

1. I’m not buying any new clothes or other fashion related stuff until Christmas.

2. There is one exception: we’re going to Berlin in September, and I am allowed to break it then, because its so nice to bring stuff back from holiday. Like this dress I’m wearing here, I bought it in Madrid, and whenever I wear it it reminds me of that trip. Also if anybody compliments me on it I can say ‘Thanks, i got it in madrid’ which is nice.

3. I am not allowed to visit the charity shops until after the Berlin trip.

4. After that, I am allowed three trips between then and Christmas (one per month)

    I adore that dress, doll. Skunkfunk makes the funnest frocks. And best of luck with your ban! I'll be interested to hear about how it goes for yas.

    Cute outfit both ways! I admire your planning. I need more planning less splurging. I am more tempted by vintage and charity shops lately than by new retail stores!
