Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Do you remember some of the opening lines of the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic?
"You know that thing when you see someone cute and he smiles and your heart kind of goes like warm butter sliding down hot toast? Well that's what it's like when I see a store. Only it's better." 
Yep, that's a tag on a brand new dress :) Oops! Spring cleaning starting now!
Sometimes I feel this way before shopping...overcome by an amazing feeling of promise, excitement and anticipation. However, other times I just want to re-explore my closet; dig up old things, reinvent pieces by adding a belt or scarf, maybe layer vests and tank tops together, wear a skirt as a dress, wear a dress as a top. Recently I have been pulled towards the latter. It's weird, I can't even go into a store and try something on without thinking if I have something completely similar at home. So my mission is to reduce the amount of shopping I do, reuse the things I love by coming up with new ways to wear each piece and recycling my clothes by weeding out what I don't wear anymore and donating it to a new home.
I guess this can be considered spring cleaning.
Thanks everyone for your sweet comments yesterday. I had so much fun on my date even though I was hardcore sweating the entire time (TMI?) At least I chose a good color to wear, no one could tell because of my all black get up! Have a great weekend!


  1. God, I feel like this is the story of my life! I really, really need to be better about shopping my closet - I've got too many things and I still can't stop shopping. And I can't even admit how many things I have that still have tags on them....yiiiikes. ahhahaa.
