Can’t believe another month has passed already! And so here we have the February roundup of the Wartime Wardrobe Challenge.
I’m doing pretty well in that I still haven’t spent any coupons. To be honest, I haven’t been much tempted either I’ve been so busy and as I mentioned I’m a bit bleh about my lack of weight loss, so I haven’t felt much like trying things on.
I did get a couple of things though. There’s a new charity shop near me, quite a strange one for disadvantaged people in the himalayas, so I went in to investigate. There wasn’t much, but a few nice things including this h&m dress for £4.
I know I need another dress like a fish needs a bike, but this one is breastfeeding friendly, so I’m making an exception. If this was new, it would use up 11 coupons.
I also got this Whistles top for £2.
That was a bit of a mistake though. I like the way it looks and it’s nice and soft, but I failed to sniff the armpits and well, it’s not good! I’ve washed it twice and it doesn’t make much of a difference. I’m currently trying vinegar, if that doesn’t work it’ll be relegated to pyjama top, or in the worst case it’s getting donated again. If this was new it would use 6 coupons.
I also donated a few more things, so all is not bad.
- Chiffon LK Bennet dress. I just didn’t wear this enough, it’s too smart for every day use and I don’t like it enough to wear it to a wedding.
- Denim jacket. It’s got three quarter length sleeves, so is not great for keeping me warm, and I have too many light jackets for the climate I live in.
- Shirt dress. I have another similar dress, and this is the less nice one of the two. The nipped in bit is above the waist and the fabric’s a bit too shiny for liking. Plus I’ve had it for so long, I don’t mind retiring it
- Yellow cowl neck top. I do really like it, but to be honest short sleeved things don’t really work for me, its’ hardly ever warm enough for them, and this one can’t be layered underneath stuff because of the cowl neck, and it’s a wee bit tight for layering.
So, in summary, so far I have:
Coupons used: 0
Coupon equivalent for second hand items: 19
Money spent : £12.99
