Bohemian Rhapsody

I woke up with an image of this gorgeous blouse that was some kind of cross between hippie and Victorian. I couldn’t quite capture it, but I’m going to keep trying. I like this anyway, for the most part, but it turned into something else.

That’s okay though, art is like life, it leads you down mysterious roads. Sometimes it works, other times you have to keep searching.

What Clothes Do for Your Mood; Pros & Cons

Obviously, I love fashion. That goes without saying. Recently though, I’ve been pondering, what is it about buying clothes and fashion itself that I like? Is it the act of shopping itself? Yes, but it goes deeper than that. I think for most women who love fashion, style is a means to express oneself. Your body is your canvas and you can say whatever you want with it.

The color I’m most attracted to out of Pantone’s picks for spring is definitely Pale Dogwood.

Clothes can heighten yoir your mood. Yes, shopping can be therapy. To me, scrolling through eBay and spring lookbooks is honestly relaxing and I can say 100β„… therapeutic after a long day. Nonetheless, recently I’ve had to ask myself, “Am I relying on shopping for a stress reliever instead of really dealing with my problems?” Recently, the answer is yes. As a result, I’m currently on a #nobuychallenge. I’ve seriously done some damage while seriously upping my spring/summer & work wardrobe game. 

I blame Free People & pictures like this on Free People’s website for making me want every oversized cute cotton sweater I can get my hands on. I’m always cold & they’re so flattering! Love these colors too. πŸ’œπŸ˜©

Yes, I needed a small upgrade, but I think letting yourself get into the habit of overspending as a quick pick me up is dangerous. Maybe these are first world problems, but in a world where stress levels are so high that we find ourselves shopping ourselves out of them, I think there’s a need to readjust. I don’t know about you, but I thought I was a smart shopper for a good while. It turns out, I was just fooling myself.

Anna Sui S/S 2017 Resort Collection. Anna Sui is one of my OG faves. She never dissapoints with her cute quirky style. πŸ’•

I checked my bank account, and this past month I spent a third on clothes and a whole lot on food for lunch at work. I need to start packing a lunch.
 It’s fine if you’re an heiress or some impossibly chic and successful woman who made her own way…I don’t know about you but I’m working on so many goals right now, I can’t afford to waste precious time or hard earned dollars on anything other than essentials. Going back to the pros of being addicted to clothing, they can empower you & make you feel like a whole new woman. Once in a while, they can even turn you into a boss lady.

Rumi Neely.  Fashion Toast was the first blog I was obsessed with. πŸ’— I don’t know if anyone can look as chic in a slip dress as she can.

Yes, I’m going to keep shopping…with limits.
