This outfit is so perfect for today’s subject matter. Almost entirely Primark, bringing my Primark obsession into sharp relief.
Last night, the Mr and I decided to get serious on the saving front. We’ve been living in rented accommodation since our uni days and all those years of magnolia walls, pine laminated floors and electric hobs have taken their toll. We want our own house. With vintage papered walls, stripped wood flooring and a gas hob! Dreamy!
Buying a house is no laughing matter – there are a lot of serious faces, drab suits and documents written in Times New Roman to contend with. And then there’s the matter of money. I hate talking about money. Mainly because I’ve never saved a penny in my life and fritter away my cash on pretty dresses, gorgeous bags and new shoes. I have a hideous Primark habit that MUST be addressed immediately. So I’m taking drastic action…
I’m starting my Fashion Diet. My wardrobe is morbidly obese as it is, so it’s time to stop feeding and slim down. Just typing the words makes my heart race at the thought of all the things I’ll miss out on! But it must be done. I want to live in a great big house with my Mr and a dog (or two), paid for by us and decorated our way.
For the next two months (February and March), I’m not going to buy a single piece of fashion. Bags are banned. Shoes lose. Dresses are dumped. And to help me along the way, I’ll be selling off a few things from my big fat wardrobe on this blog. All proceeds will go to the House Fund. And I’ll keep you updated once a week with a post dedicated to the Fashion Diet and how it’s going.
So what do you think? Are you interested in my challenge? Can I do it?
