And for a while I did.
Then the slippery slope would be soaped up and I would binge buy. At no time when I have binge bought in the past have I ever felt calm, composed and pleased with myself. Like the saying goes, if I am not happy with what I have, how can more make me feel better? And it didn't. I was angry mainly, perhaps because you know what, I think I am OK, I think I can keep a handle on a fair few things, but buying (mainly clothes) was something that seemed to keep getting the better of me. I couldn't work it out and to be honest I still can't work it out why I felt the need to own, mostly unworn, clothing.
I have stopped buying (again) as of 29 days ago and unless I need something (highly unlikely) I won't buy anything else for as long as I can. When I read my fave blog ILONA and find out she is wearing items she has had 25 years, that makes me excited and inspired and keen to be even a fraction like that. Very rarely has an item of clothing really moved me. I love a few items, a few certain colours and styles and some cool boots, but beyond that I really couldn't care less.
So once again it begs the question? Why have I spent the equivalent of a down payment on a house on clothing. I do not know.
I don't care if I look fashionable. I do like certain looks, but I have all I need to achieve these styles, so I don't need more. I don't care what people think of me, in fact current observations suggest I look very much (and dress very much) like an elf! Hahaaa...I have no problem with that! Today I am wearing a Christmas jumper with Christmas trees and snowflakes on, tight purple skinny legs, red elf boots and my hair, is a dark red/black pixie colour...
I simply can't buy any more. The way I feel when I buy is just too disappointing. I think more of myself than to disappoint myself...have I finally got it together...
