Sometimes I try. I really do, but more often that not I reach for the same 5 pieces of clothing over and over. And frankly after one year, these 5 pieces are looking BAD. Even my husband has offered to take me shopping, it's that bad!
So needless to say at the end of this wonderfully LONG year, my list slowly got longer and longer of essential pieces of clothing needing replacement…that is to say until a VERY good friend stepped in with a precious bag of well chosen essentials. A new black hoodie (bound to match everything and therefore you will all be sick of seeing me in it over the next three years), black flats (I really should have bought a new pair of these pre-2010 . I think I complained about that fact so many times, this was her way of shutting me up) and surprise, surprise a pair of black comfy pants. Rachel, you are the bestest!!!
So now, you may wonder, what is on my list of “needs” for 2011? What will I break my shopping fast to buy??
In addition to a few boring household things (i.e. a new broom...I told you BORING) these are a few things I will enjoy shopping for:
A new black skirt is desperately needed. One of the two in my closet is a maternity skirt (yes, my baby is 4) and the other I got at the swap and has a broken zipper.
"A Perfectly Kept House is the Sign of a Misspent Life" - sounds like a book I would thoroughly enjoy!
