I find it a bit ironic that I found this dress unworn and seemingly unloved, hiding under some jumpers in my wardrobe a day after reading Love Aesthetics' post about conspicuous consumption?! Gosh-errrr her experiment made me think about the amount of stuff I buy online and never actually wear out. I recently made the decision that unless I see an item I've been wanting/ needing/ looking for, for some time, I wont be buying anything new.. I think the fact that I don't remember ordering, receiving or hanging up this dress (?_?) is pretty much all the persuasion I need to stop spending money on things I want but don't need. That being said, I paired it with my *cough* new *cough* leopard creepers that I LOVEEEE (they were on saaaaale and they were the last pair in my size!)

Loving the lipstick and the all black! And what you've said actually made me giggle...a nervous giggle...because I've come to that realization as well. I NEED to stay out of the stores, because really, there's so many things in my closet that I haven't worn yet or have only worn once. So here's to not spending for a while!

Preachin' to the choir, love. If I returned all the stuff I bought and hadn't yet worn, I could take myself on holiday.

I'm in the same boat. I've tried to cut down my spending now because I only wear 30% of my wardrobe. I guess if I make my own clothes I'll have exactly what I want and probably (hopefully) impulse buy less.

haha I'm trying very hard to stop this nonsense of overspending then not even wearing half the shit.

Love how you paired the creepers with the dress.
