A month of abstinence by What is Style by Yellow Tulip

I will wait!!

I WILL WAITSo I have a confession to make – I am not going to buy any clothes or shoes for the month of December. Easy to say when it is only Day 6 but I have seriously taken stock of my over-flowing wardrobe and decided enough is enough.

I am grateful for the likes of Trade Me (where I regularly sell items of clothing and shoes) and for Dress for Success and the Ellerslie Hospice who have been recipients of my wardrobe cleansing.

So wish me luck and I’ll keep in touch in regards to how I survive – won’t help when those Christmas sales start on Boxing Day.

I have to remember it is all about other people – not me this month!!

I fell into the art of style quite by accident. There was no defining moment when I decided that I knew what I wanted to do. I want people to feel good about themselves. Many don’t know where to shop and/or how to wear fashion. It has never been solely about cost, but of finding quality at a reasonable price and being able to wear - to suit your own figure, style and fashion. Join me as we explore – What is Style?

  1. In twelve step programmes we give out a chip to celebrate 30 days of abstinence, I will have to get one specially made for you. Laybys not allowed! Talking friends into buying things for you is a no-no as well. This is very exciting! Keep us updated. We are now on day six….how are the withdrawals going?

    • Well shopping yesterday at Paper Plus I saw a fabulous book on Chanel that I really wanted. I thought to myself, do books count as part of my ‘no shopping’ rule for December. I decided to think about it, and in the end didn’t buy the book. So far – now Day 9. Off to do more Christmas Shopping today so have high hopes nothing with sneak into any of the bags that shouldn’t be there …

  2. Great work! That is the type of information that should
    be shared around the web. Shame on Google for now not positioning this post
    higher! Come on over and talk over with my site . Thank you
    =)
