I'm a HUGE bargain shopper... but eventually all of those great bargain deals add up! I accumulate an abundance of clothing a year. From discount retail stores to thrift store and yard sales... I just have too much to maintain, organize and store. I also don't realize where my money goes until it's too late!
Which leads me to my two month pledge. It started with my boyfriend making me pinky promise him that I wouldn't buy any clothes, shoes, etc for two months. Sometimes I need someone to challenge me to follow through on something. While this was originally a request from my wonderful Boyfriend it is more a personal pledge to myself.
With this pledge comes the bigger challenge. Getting creative with the items I already have! I need to start thinking outside the box and come up with new ways to wear my favorite pieces. Or actually use some of the pieces I don't wear very often!
I would also like to start reconstructing items into new, wearable items. I've already started making my second reconstructed piece of clothing. Mens shirt into a dress. I'm using this tutorial from Instructables submitted by the talented emattrose. So far so good! I just have to convince my wonderful boyfriend or someone to help me fit it to myself. Or I need to finally make myself a dress form.
