It’s getting way too easy, this no buying clothes thing.
I hope I am not turning into a Scrooge?
I have definitely not turned into someone who doesn’t care about their clothes. I like to dress up. I like receiving compliments about my outfits. I like playing with my clothes.
Now that I am considering the true cost of clothes, I don’t like to brag, “You wouldn’t believe this only cost $10.”or “You won’t believe what I paid!” Which is kind of easy to avoid, given that I haven’t bought anything new all year. But I can’t help myself responding a d pointing out the possible cost to workers and the environment when others brag about the cheapness of their recent purchases. There’s nothing like the fervency of a new convert!
My current bragging revolves around a refrain of this theme: “Oh this number? It’s over 4 years old. Had it for ages.”
I like how a sabbatical from mindless consumerism has allowed me time to reflect on my needs and wants regarding clothes, time to consider how my style has changed and time to organise my clothes.
Two months to go. And I know they will be a piece of cake. Except they’ll be a metaphoric cake, given I am continuing Droptober.
