Mostly to amuse myself, I thought I would keep a daily diary of my no shopping September!
My Metalicus Top arrived today (ordered end of August) and its so fab. I love it and will wear it tomorrow. The fabric is beautiful and the "oversized' size is perfect. It's lovely to have something new:) I can imagine this working with so many of my bottoms. Now I want it in Blue! Oh and Metalicus very kindly sent my August Rewards Voucher.. it has to be used by end of September...Lyn D said it would be ok if I bought something right at the end of the month. If Lyn thinks its ok, then so do I ;)
Busy day at work. Time spent on YLF, should have been working. Loving seeing what everyone is thinking for Fall but no real desire to shop. Carolbee sent me details on the fab black shrug she found but I refrained from popping over to the Marketplace to check it out.
No time to think about clothes. Community Meal today and only 4 volunteers turned up. People sick and away. We managed, but we worked hard. Then, Meeting with K re fundraiser fashion parade. Got my fix going through the preloved clothing set aside for the parade. Found some amazing animal print wedge booties (Wayne Cooper) ...W A N T T H E M... C A N T H A V E
T H E M!! Strategising how they can be mine! Put them in the parade and I'll buy them on the night ... that could work. Thoughts of clothing were quickly washed away after I dropped my iphone in the toilet late this afteroon!! Frantically took my phone to the Smartphone shop, where it is as I type. New home button and camera but otherwise in full working order phew....*sigh* well there's $80 that wont be going on clothes :( The upside of this day is my new "Layer'd" dress arrived (ordered in August). Love it. Can't wait til it is warm enough to wear it. No more clothing on order.... starting to feel jittery!
