I mentioned a few weeks ago that I had been trying harder to live on a more defined budget and shop more for "free." Most of this comes from being a newlywed in a new home that I want to decorate, but part of it is also inspired by the post I read about "The Carrie Bradshaw Effect."
While I never officially declared my participation in their challenge, I'm now going on five weeks without spending money on new clothing or accessories. This hasn't stopped me from acquiring new things though. I'm just being more strategic about it. Everything I've purchased in the last several weeks has been purchased with money I made from selling on Poshmark.
I'm also being more strategic about how I remix my wardrobe. You'll notice this outfit is comprised of pieces you've seen before, and seen recently (skirt here, top here, bag here, shoes here)! I just make sure to wear the pieces in new ways and with things I haven't worn them with before.
To supplement all of this, I'm also participating in a #bradshaweffect clothing swap in San Francisco hosted by Angie later this month. In the area? Join us! The more people that show up, the better the selection will be!
Not in the area? Don't worry! There are other clothing swaps planned across the nation. For more information on these swaps or for information on how to host your own, contact Angie.
