The Clothing Fast Challenge

The other day I bought the cutest Heatherette denim shorts. When I got home I opened up one of my dresser drawers and buried at the bottom of the drawer was a pair of denim shorts similar to the pair I just bought. That’s when I realized that I needed to go on a clothing fast.

I felt guilty - oh, so guilty. Guilty of wasting money? Perhaps. Guilty that someone out there is wearing the same thing day in and day out while I have forgotten about a pair of shorts - one of many pairs of shorts? Maybe.

All I know is that my wardrobe is fairly big compared to others around the world. My clothing mentality is “I want! I want!” and the only thing I really need is a pair of black flats. And even then I still question the actual necessity of these flats.

So for the remaining of this month and through the end of April I am going to go on a clothing fast. No clothing purchases! Can I do it? Or will I succumb to the marketing messages I read in fashion magazines that tell me that I “must have” this or that?

Stay tuned! I’ll be posting updates on this clothing fast…
