I've been a self declared fashion blogger for all of about six weeks. And I have sworn to do my best not to allow the blogging world to drive me into more spending (this is extra challenging because I do love shopping...and I REALLY love a good deal). I feel like sometimes I get weighed down by the combination of cute clothes all over the internet and constant reminders of sales, exclusive deals, and those gosh darn cute wedges that I obviously can't live without.
It feels like there is a constant battle between my email inbox and my bank account. It's a pretty uneven fight. The email inbox screams the magic word SALE SALE SALE and my bank account just gives in without saying much. Maybe I can get my bank to start sending me NO NO NO emails? That might help balance it out?
One of the reasons I started this blog was to inspire myself to put together new outfits. To take what I have, and learn how to wear it better. And to only buy pieces that I ABSOLUTELY love and that I can work into my existing wardrobe in many, many ways.
But I still find myself giving in to that itch to shop. I am pretty good (ok, really good) at making excuses about why I MUST have an item- only to wear it once and then promptly forget why it was so important. So this week I am brainstorming ideas on how to become a better non-shopper. Any ideas? If anyone out there has the magic solution, please let me know. Until then, I'll be doing a lot of thinking.
