Happy February! February is the month of love. I love flowers, chocolate and the fact that winter is half over. But there is nothing I love more than shopping. They say if you you love something set it free, and on January first, that is exactly what I did. I made a resolution not to shop for any new clothes or shoes for THREE months .
Three months may not seem like a long time, but for a fashionista it is an eternity. So how am I coping?
Good question! I am proud to say for that past month and a half I have not bought any clothes or shoes. With the tiny exception (no pun) of a pair of underwear for $3 in an extreme emergency ( I forgot to pack a pair in my gym bag if you must know).
So how does one go three months without shopping for new things? Well I guess I can shop for old things but I hate thrift stores . And someone else's "old thing" would still be "new for me," so that would not count now, would it?
So... I went shopping in the most convenient place of all... my closet! I found some old things that were brand new.With tags! And some in red, just in time for Valentine's day!

I received five compliments before I even finished pouring my morning coffee at work! And no, I did not style my outfit with the silly beret as I work in NYC, not Paris .
Last, but not least, was a past impulse buy at the DVF sample sale.

If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you are with. And that goes for the clothes and shoes in your closet. Stay tuned for more hidden closet finds, my next wish list, and whether or not I ended up buying vacation clothes!
