It’s been a really long time since my last post. Not that anyone actually reads this anyway. It was getting pretty hard to resist the temptation. Fortunatly there’s only one month left. I do however have a pretty long list of things to buy when this is over. I’m in desperate need of some basics and new sport clothes. Those normally only last a year. Can’t wait to shop...
Quitters and sinners
Hey everyone, sorry it has been so long since the last update. A lot as happened. First of all, Bir quit the challenge. Why? Well, because she simply couldn’t resist. So after 5 months of not buying clothes, she cracked under the pressure. I’m actually pretty surprised she lasted this long XD Second of all, in 6 days it will be 6 months since we started the challenge! So that means...
Happy easter :)
Well it has been a while but I’m back :) I’ve had a busy month (or two). And now it’s Easter so I have time to blog something :) The challenge is going great, I haven’t been in the mall for more than a month and I really really want to go to the mall to buy some make-up or magazines (not even clotes and that’s a miracle :)) Last week I thought it was a good idea...
The first temptation
Oh my god! :o At this moment I hate being in this challenge and you can see the real fashion addict coming up in me. I just got a mail from Steps (a clothing store in the Netherlands) that Addy van den Krommenacker (who designed a red carpet dress for among other things supermodel Tyra Banks (you can she the dress he designed in the movie below) and was a guest judge in ANTM) is designing an...
almost a month
It’s almost a month ago that te challenge began :) Let’s say time flies because I was making a post in week 2 but because I was very busy the last weeks with school etc. I forgot to finish it (shame on me). I survived my testweek and have some great results ^^ Since I can’t buy any clothes, I am still looking for clothes, just for inspiration. I just found this really awesome...
Realized the title of this blog is wrong. Apparently it’s a leap year and there will be 366 days. Damn XD
Hello my darling followers, in other words, hello Nana and me.. Yeah, because so far we only have 2 followers. Bir isn’t even following herself XD So far I haven’t been tempted yet to buy any clothes. That doesn’t mean that my annual January shopping craving is any less. I have now totally shifted my attention to Make up. I’ve never been a make up kind of girl, and I still...
The idea of not being allowed to shop is probably worse than the actual not shopping. -Nika
Today is the day
So today is the day that Nika and I registered on the free fashion challenge site. This week I bought the things I thought I needed (see pictures below). And now I’m sitting here behind my desk writing this blog. What I’m going to do today is (I hope) making lots of homework for next week. I have to hand in 6 articles and an computer-assignment with excel and PowerPoint in 6 days....
Since my closet was looking like a mess anyway, I decided to do some inventory. This list is my every day wear and does not include formal wear and sport clothes. Long Pants: 6 Short Pants: 3 Long Skirts: 8 Mid length Skirts: 4 Short Skirts: 5 Short Dresses: 3 Long dresses: 2 Sweaters: 4 Vests: 3 Bolero: 2 Waistcoat: 1 Corsets: 4 Tops: 14 Tshirts: 10 Long sleeve shirts: 4 Velvet...
The days before the challenge
How am I gonna survive this? 365 days without buying clothes, jewelry and shoes. Why have I said yes to the challenge Nika sent me on facebook? How can I be up to date with the trends this year with what I have in my the closet and my jewelry? These are some questions that I’m question myself all the time, why did I said yes!? Luckily I have 5 days to buy the last things before the...
