February RevisitedFriday, February 13, 2015
(Let's just gloss over the fact that I should've posted this at the beginning of February 'k? Cool.)
I often look back over blog posts and see what I was doing a year ago, two years ago... February always seems to be a month when I try to be frugal. Frugal March doesn't have quite the same ring to it does it? Being frugal while trying to plan a wedding is laughable. Necessary spending is allowed but at what point do 72 tealight holders become a necessity? I'd hazard a guess at never...
Still, I like to revisit experiments on this here blog and I see no reason why February this year shouldn't be frugal too (wedding aside).
In Feb 2012 I styled up my most recent purchases in three different ways and I really enjoyed it - see part 1 / 2 / 3 / 4. So as well as cutting out any unnecessary spending this month, I'll also be revisiting this little wardrobe challenge.
Four of the 10 items I styled back then remain in my wardrobe - (above l - r) the Zara jeans, the Dorothy Perkins boots, the pink Custard Designs bag and the Very riding boots. I don't wear / use any of these on a regular basis anymore so I think it'll be fun to style them up again. First off I'll try to recreate these outfits and then I'll find new ways to wear them.
Do you ever look back over old blog posts? Do they inspire or make you cringe? Make you wish you still owed an item of clothing or make you dump something in a charity bag? I'd love to know.
