Dress: Birthday Gift || Belt: HM || Sunglasses: F21 || Purse: Kate Spade ||
Beautiful polka dots dress my beautiful friend gifted me for my birthday; along with other awesome things she sent me. It has been 2 months since I last bought clothes so it was refreshing and exhilarating to wear something new :) (my husband also bought me a dress last week so that doesn't count right? )
I only go to the mall if I need to grab something quick or buy gifts for friends now. I make a list and stick to it. I no longer receive emails that is related to shopping. I work right across the mall so I used to go during my lunch break ALL THE TIME! Now I use that time to work out at a nearby gym.
Here are some questions I ask myself before I buy something: Will I be able to wear this item more then 5-10 times? Is it work and play appropriate. I love dressing up for work but I don't want to spend money on an item that I can't wear outside of work. Do I really really really NEED this? Am I going to pass out if I can't have it, will I be dreaming about it at night. If not, then no I don't need it. I will survive. :)
My question is how do you pursue fashion on a budget? To me fashion is about experimenting and having fun with clothes whether if it's new or old. Happy Thursday! xoxo
