After doing some massive cleaning and making a wishlist of the clothes I actually need, here comes the third step from my Wardrobe Detox programme: going shopping. There's nothing more fun than shopping for a new wardrobe, but at the same time you need to be careful not to get caught in the same old purchasing habits.
Before leaving the house, I settled a couple of rules (and I plan to stick to them from now on):
Because I noticed I only wore the non-coloured clothes from my old wardrobe, my first rule was not to buy anything unless it was black, white, beige, grey or blue. Second rule was to stay away from prints, unless they were strippes. Strippes are good, but they need to be on shirts, T-shirts or sweaters. Third rule was to seriously pay attention to the fabric and buy clothes made out of high-quality natural fabrics: cotton,silk, wool, etc. Not only they will last more in time, but they will also look better. Last but not least, I tried to avoid the sales as much as possible, tough I bought some super-trendy shoes, but I think they will still be fashionable for the next seasons.
So, you must be wandering what I purchased? Some of them you already got to see on the blog, like the black Birkenstock sandals, the white jeans and the Zara mules, but I also got a leather jacket, which I look forward to wear next season. The list is not yet completed, so you might have to stick around to read about my shopping adventures.
