Confessions of a Non-shopaholic

By Eemusings @eemusings

You know it's time to go shopping when you have recurring dreams about clothes.

I wish I was kidding. I've lost count now of the number of times I've dreamt about finding new items hidden away in my closet. (Waking up in every case has been surprisingly disappointing.)

I really hate shopping. I tend to buy stuff in bursts - bundle up the pain, I guess. And it's about time for one of those, since I haven't bought anything in about a year. Belt-tightening (figuratively) and all that.

It's embarrassing how many of my clothes are faded, stained, torn or need to be firmly retired to 'at home' status only for whatever reasons. I'm 27 this year and badly need to update my wardrobe accordingly.

Where to start? At the minimum:

  • Black pants
  • Jeans (probably one dark and one light/medium)
  • Multiple cardigans
  • At least one long-sleeved top
  • A non-summery skirt
  • More dresses
  • Black boots
  • Neutral flats
  • Swimsuit
  • A handbag
  • And maybe a soft blazer?

I am really not looking forward to this quest. Fashionista friends, put me in your prayers.
