challenge accepted!

I decided to challenge myself not to buy any clothes in 2013. This includes shoes and accessories too. I’ve done pretty well so far with 1 item bought this year (before my decision). It’s not that I would be spending loads on clothes anyway, but I like to browse second hand shops and occasionally purchase more expensive designer items. Living in a small apartment has made me realize that I actually have a lot of stuff, why would I need more? If I really need something, I can make it myself. So, hopefully this doesn’t mean it will be a boring year from a blogging perspective but instead a year of DIY, upcycling, re-intenting and creativity. I’m sure this new approach will force me to re-evaluate what I really need and to invent ways to keep my wardrobe up-to-date without entering the shops. I’m committed and would like to send this challenge out there to the world as well, in case someone would like to join me.
