Well. My prediction that I would not survive May without some clothes buying was accurate. I just wasn't able to resist. I am so tired of my winter clothes that it was inevitable. I've bought a sleeveless black just below the knee length dress that I can wear over long-sleeved t-shirts or warmer jumpers as the weather dictates, and over straight-legged pants or even tights if I'm feeling very brave. It's from some schmick modern fabric that holds its shape and doesn't crumple and has a rather dramatic collar. I was initially a bit put off by the collar but have decided I like it more as time goes by. I seem to be wearing it every second day or so. I also bought two long-sleeved t-shirts to wear under the dress. I feel rather embarrassed to admit that last winter I was wearing t-shirts that were so old and worn that their cuffs were frayed.
And I also bought some earrings at the Old Bus Depot Markets in Canberra. They're like tiny round silver showcases with a textured paper design inside. Quite Japanese in their design.
So, that's four items for May - a total of 6 clothing items purchased in 2011 with 6 more to go. I'm more than half-way through my quota but not half-way through the year. After such a good start this is a bit worrying.
