the dave ramsey of fashion

last week i got to chat with a few of my favorite ladies. they told me some things that made my heart so happy!

one had bought her first piece of clothing since december that day! (an $8 top at ross! that’s my kind of deal.)

another had gotten a purse that weekend but was planning to take it back because she decided she doesn’t need to have a purse for every season.

the other told me i was like the dave ramsey of fashion. whenever she goes to buy something she hears my voice in her head.

i am so excited that the challenge kat and i have taken is not only changing us but some of you, too! don’t get me wrong; i don’t think it’s wrong to buy things, but we’ve got to think about what we’re buying and be good stewards of the blessings that we have!

      Thank you, Hayley! Sorry to disappoint. I found several recently (well, it was before my year of no shopping began so it was back in December) at various thrift stores, so fingers crossed you’ll find one that’s similar!
