When I told you about my no-buy, a lot of you suggested to inform you from time to time about this shop-a-holic in rehab. So here are we are a month and a half later and to be honest: it was not that bad at all. The first two weeks I caught myself browsing to online shops like asos and topshop on autopilot, but with ease I clicked every opened tab away. What also helped was banning the shopping streets the first weeks but now I'm already able to walk around in stores with friends without feeling bad at all.
I am not going to pretend that fashion isn't my interest any longer but the last couple of weeks I just have become very picky when it comes to clothing. From now on, I only want to buy clothes and accessories that I really want and that will look amazing on me. I first want to think before I actually buy something to prevent regretting purchases. Besides that I want good quality clothes. Yup, very fastidious.
Of course I still read magazines and visit fashion blogs and as expected that means I have to resist a looooot of temptation. That is why I started to create a wish list. I write down everything that I "like" with the thought that I can buy it all when my no-buy is over. But the longer I look at that list, the lesser is on it. The urge for new items is fading away and that is a very good thing. I did regain control of my shopping habits and that was the purpose of this no-buy.
I am now in the middle of this no-buy thing and I'm so glad I started it. I only have this voucher from Zara that I want to use to line through something of my "still missing in tha closet"-list: a white dress. I really like how this white Zara dress looks on me, but it's a little bit tricky because it's see through. Anyway what do you think of the dress I'm wearing in the picture above? Do you think I can buy this dress for celebrating how far I've already come?
Enjoy your weekend sweeties!
