the dry run

Guess what.  I hit a new "stage" in my unbuying this month.  A very uncool stage.  I have become painfully bored of my closet.  

I mostly find myself wishing it all just disappeared and that I could start fresh.  Wondering why Stacy and Clinton couldn't just throw it all out for me and hand me a credit card.  Where is this new emotion coming from?  Have I found my threshold for not having something new to wear?  Or is the excitement and energy of summer arriving just making me all wanty and dissatisfied?

I shouldn't overreact too much.  I'm still having some fun outfitting myself.

                     Spring 2014 outfits from my closet                     

On account of my boredom, I made a surprising choice while at the mall recently with my mom.  Upon walking through spring/summer 2014 collections, I decided that maybe I've become set enough in my non-shopping ways to handle trying something on without freaking out.  

I wanted almost everything I saw.  This being the issue that got me in this mess in the first place, and the reason why during the last ten months I have avoided the mall almost completely.  I tried on a dozen or so items and these were my thoughts:

  • Perk Alert!  When you aren't buying, price doesn't matter!
  • Curse you Rachel Roy, Kensie and Denim & Supply for having the most wear-worthy, gorgeously designed summer selections
  • I really don't miss the feeling of trying on a thousand things and being frustrated or depressed because only one or two things fit (almost) perfectly

           Rachel Roy Flower Cross Tank Dress | Denim & Supply Call of the Wild T           

Overall my experiment of will power was good.  It allowed me to learn a few new things about myself and see how far I've come.  And it definitely didn't hurt that I had someone supportive there to help keep me on track! 

I came, I saw, I conquered.
