Orange Sky

One of the current major stresses in my life is money. I have not been handling my finances in the most adult manner and my compulsive shopping habits do not help my already depleting bank account. That being said, today, I am making a promise not to buy any new clothes until the first day of spring. Don't worry though! I have plenty of reserves and clothing that I've bought with the intention of selling and never did. Not only will I save hoards of money, it will give me the opportunity to get creative with my weardrobe! It will be a rough road, but as long as I steer clear of The Salvation Army, Target, and the mall, I should make it through alright.

Socks and shoes is my favorite combination these days. Gotta love thigh highs, knee-highs, trouser, anklet,mesh. Love them all and want to pair these pairs with everything!

  4. i love the socks with shoes!!! and i'm glad that you are taking a very adult approach to your money problem. i think a lot of people don't even consider making changes in their lives to be more financially responsible. plus, it could be really fun! you have such a natural way of styling your clothes that i know you will be super creative with the things that are already in your closet. good luck!!

  5. Good luck with your challenge -- I admire that you're doing your ban until spring (most of my self-imposed ones only lasted a month or two). It'll be interesting to see your outfit combinations from what you have already!

    I love the print of your dress. You seriously have the best vintage dress collection. I'm just in love with your style!

  7. As they should be. You do socks + shoes very well! You look like a 70's "it" girl in these photos. What a babe!

    I admire you for your shopping ban. Those things never work for me.
