Yesterday, @markstry left me his credit card to buy his Ben Sherman jacket - which was @ 40% off.
And I, surprise suprise, couldn't resist the sales myself. Despite being so strict on myself the previous week, I dived into Jo Borkett and ohmgee, a Chanel-inspired boxy jacket in the most beautiful blue colour. For R290. I just couldn't help it. It was just too amaze-balls a jacket to pass up that amazing price as well!
But then this morning, @markstry says to me that there's not enough days in the week for me to wear all my clothes, why am I buying more, blah blah. Well, challenge accepted!
This is my pact with myself that I will not buy any more clothes for 3 months. And this is an extremely difficult task considering it's my birthday in a month and the Loeries in September and theses occassions call for clothes. But it wouldn't be a challenge if it wasn't challenging right?
And to show him how there are more than enough days in 3 months to wear all my clothes, I will wear a different outfit every day. And photograph them.
So challenge accepted. Wish me luck. I won't object to clothes as presents.
