So… I made it 27 days. That’s pretty pathetic. I bought something with funds above and beyond my Christmas gift moola. I have failed my 100 days no spend challenge.
Here’s my reasoning… I have several items that I have been looking to add to my wardrobe for quite some time. I’m incredibly picky, so it takes me forever to find anything that remotely meets my needs. The item is usually “too” something: too short, too expensive, too trendy, too cheap, too frilly, etc.
One item that I have been looking to find for quite some time is a striped dress of the shift variety with three quarter length sleeves. These are harder to come by than you would think. The ones I have found recently generally fall into the too short or too expensive category. I cannot fathom the thought of paying $300 for a simple striped dress.
Somehow I discovered this striped dress, and it looked like it met all of my requirements. I originally bought it using my Christmas money, only to receive an email several hours later that it was unavailable and they wouldn’t be able to fulfill my order. Poop. So, I ended up spending my Christmas money on something else on my “wardrobe hole” list, which I’m very excited about. It’s rare to close a hole.
Several days later the dress became available in my size again… I rushed to order it and it is in transit to me right now. It may or may not fill that hole. I might have failed for no reason. If it works, super. If not, at least I know that I tried and left no stone unturned in my quest for the striped dress. If I didn’t try, this would haunt me until the end of time. No… Really. I am that mental. Either way I plan to get back on the wagon and attempt to finish this challenge up.
It’s a cute dress though, right?
If it works out you will probably see me wearing it like this.
Thanks for stopping by, and stay classy my friends.
