POP! (#17)

Day 17: Wednesday December 1st, 2010
#17: December 1st, 2010
Cardigan: Charlotte Russe 2010; Top: Thrifted: 2008; Tank: Target 2010; Belt: ON 2010; Pants: ON 2010; Shoes: Blowfish 2010

So, here's what I've learned so far during the 30 for 30: I need more heels, more pants (cords, trousers, etc); next time I need to use all of my cardigans, this time I thought there would be too many. There's more, but now I can't find the paper where I wrote it down when I was thinking about it. And you'll see that throughout, most of my stuff was bought this year. The reason for that is after having a baby, my size has changed completely. It's difficult for me to buy new things when I'm at a size I don't want to be and I don't know how long I'm going to be that size. I'm replenishing my wardrobe after having to give a lot of my smaller things away. And I loved those clothes! I know it sounds silly, but I had a good wardrobe. A lot of basic items, but lots of fun ones too for flare. I miss them. Some of them I still have, but most are now gone. And it's hard to replenish with a very limited budget and with me not being the only one needing clothes. If you don't have a toddler you have no idea how fast they grow.

How about shopping at thrift stores so that you don't spend a lot on clothing you might need to replace later on?
I like the belting on this. And the cardigan works so well with the pattern in the top.
