Updates and Staying Course
Links I love:
This post by Lady Sarah was by far the best I read in recent times – on how to slowly build an ethical, real fashion wardrobe. I will be revisiting this article over the course this year to help me stay on course.
After returning from my India trip, I decided that I need to take some time to assess my wardrobe and actually figure out the things that I were good purchases in my closet. You know, time to make a few lists and charts in the process. It is almost a month since I started my ban. This is my second update. As a practice, I write down a few notes about what tempted me and the little luxuries that kept me going.
Temptations along the way:
Barneys X Jennifer Meyer Dress: Why do I always fall for those bohemian, floral prints. I am so predictable. Then I realize that I already have a Topshop Unique dress in my closet which is very similar.
MM LaFleur Inez Dress: This dress is super tempting. I have always admired MM LaFleur. I have talked about in the past on my blog. The price of this dress is hard to swallow. After burning my
hands wallet with an expensive dress from Theory last year, I am more wary. So, I decided to do my own little research project on how MM LaFleur’s clothes are made. So, far the folks at MM LaFleur have been very open. I will let everyone know as soon as I have concrete answers.
I did not make any purchases. I did not mindlessly browse online as much as I used to, but I haven’t been able to give it up fully.
1. It was nice to get a tax refund and actually not spend it. It promptly went towards 2017 Luxury Bag purchase fund.
2. A few friends and I got together and threw a surprise party for husband a few days before his birthday. Between Corn-in-the-hole, Cards and sumptuous food, it was a good night.
3. I completed
reading listening Tales from the Back Row on Audible and enjoyed it a lot. Amy Odell is witty, cynical and honest – the kind of writer I’d like to write about Fashion. Mind you, this is not a style book. It is part anecdotes and part journey, of how she went on to become an editor at Cosmopolitan. It is a entertaining, light read.
