Two Teens And Their Mama: No Repeat January Week Three

No Repeat January Week Three


I've been shopping my closet for almost three weeks now.  I sound like a broken record, but I haven't worn even the tiniest fraction of what's in there.  Yikes.

Luckily, the urge to buy something new is diminishing each week.  My friend Carrie started a "Let's Be Shop Free For 3" group, and all of her suggestions have been very helpful. Unsubscribing from store emails made a huge difference since I'm not bombarded all day long with tempting sales. 

Carrie also asked us to count our fall/winter clothing so we would have an idea of what items we own.  I started with cardigans - and counted 31.  That's not all of my sweaters....just cardigans.  Double yikes.  

So I shall press on with my challenge!

I've only got five outfits to share this week because I'm out of town at a Builder's Show and had to prepare this post before I left.  I pulled out my white jeans in outfit #2, and I really liked how they looked with tall boots.  I ended up thrifting the plaid shirt in outfit #4.  It was very heavy and big, and I've got other plaids that I like better.  Plus my brother said I looked like a lumberjack, and while I rarely take fashion advice from people who wear camo most of the time, I had to agree with him.

This was my favorite of the week.  



I'm channeling my inner Shaunacey and finally wearing these burgundy jeans that I bought at Loft in the fall.  I can't remember where I got the sweater, but the suede booties came from Macy's and have just the right amount of fringe.

Come back next week to see if I managed to visit Vegas without shopping. On the one hand, they have the best outlet mall there, but I'm travelling with the "anti-shopper", aka my husband.  So there will probably just be eating and working.  And hopefully a show or two thrown in.  Wish me luck.

  2. I like the burgundy pants!

    I started to go through some of my closets (yes I have more than one) and tried to go through some of my dresses. I managed to choose 10 to take to the consignment store. Sounds good right? That was until I decided to count the number of dresses I own. 135. Yep. It was like being an alcoholic and seeing every drink I've had in my life.

    One of my bloggy friends said not to be too harsh on myself since I could have a much worse addiction.

    At this point I know I've passed the regular shopper, I'm well into the realm of a collector. Loving vintage has created a monster.

    I've always heard that Vegas has great thrift and vintage stores. Good thing I'm not there with you!

    1. We could probably get into a lot of trouble in Vegas. I don't think there's anything wrong with being a collector of clothes. Yep, there are way worse addictions we could have!

  6. You and Sarah and Shaunacey all do Shaunacey so well. I haven't gotten up the courage to wear my white jeans since Labor Day...I know, I know. Maybe this weekend. With the boots, they really look wintry, huh? Like snow!

    1. I know, right? Too many cardigans. And that's just the tip of the sweater iceberg.
