clothing week: i quit already

Yup.  I quit already.  I said I'd only wear 7 items of clothing this week, but I'm not gonna. Here's why:

1.  I don't want to.

2.  Everybody else is doing it, and I want to do something different.

The plan for this week has been bugging me ever since I started the Summer of 7.  The other weeks I could all get my head around.  But this one...  I don't know.  I just don't think clothes are a problem for me.

Don't get me wrong, I like clothes.  A lot.  But I don't think I'm out of control.

I asked my husband if I am in denial, and he said no.  I'm fine.  I don't have too many clothes and I don't spend too much money on them.  He even said I could write any statement I wanted and he would sign it here on the blog, if y'all don't believe me.  He said what I should do instead is...

HAVE FASHION BLOG WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love this man!

More every day.

What in the world could Fashion Blog Week have to do with getting rid of excess, you may wonder?

Well, a lot of my clothes come from thrift stores.  I just whipped through the shirts on my hangers and it went something like this:  thrift, Target, Costco, Costco, Costco, thrift, thrift, thrift, Target, thrift, thrift.

Other people get rid of their excess, and I am happy to pick it up on the cheap, and look cute in the process.

So here's the new plan for clothing week:

1.  Keep a record of how many items of clothing I actually do wear this week, just out of curiosity.

2.  Show you around the world of thrift--recycling at its funnest!
