Thought I would add a post on some of my thoughts on fashion. I absolutely love fashion, and this was one of my main driving factors to lose weight as I feel so much better in clothes when I'm a size 12 rather than a size 18. Last year when I dropped all the weight I went on several major shopping sprees to replace the clothes that were too big for me as I was determined that I would not be keeping any of my 'fat' clothes (just too easy to slip back into them if you start eating unhealthily again). I ended up spending a fortune and sending several bags to the charity shop. Now we are in 2010 I have promised myself that I am going to live within my means, so the credit card is out. This means that I have a set 'pocket money' budget each month of a measly £200 which has to include nights outs, birthdays, make up, clothes, the lot! Hence I have to be very strategic about what I decide to spend my hard earned cash on!
Since I now have a wonderful wardrobe full of clothes of which I never have the time to wear it all, I want to get the most out of new purchases by buying the best quality key pieces I can afford.
This month I have my eye on -
These lovely tan boots from topshop.
A lovely tan leather bag like this
And this wardrobe essential, a beige trench. Of course I would prefer a Burberry Trench but something tells me my charity worker wage won't stretch! I plan to wear these with a range of items I already have including several of my floral tea dresses, jeggings and skinny jeans, breton stripe tshirts etc. Just hope the weather improves soon or I'll be freezing!
