yesterday, sweet sarah asked for a list of the items i’m considering when 2013 rolls around. as you wish, sarah!
before i tell you all my secrets, i want to say this: just because i’ve decided to shop higher quality doesn’t mean i won’t make the occasional forever 21 purchase or give up thrifting.
my plan is to evaluate on a piece by piece basis. my blue-black and white blazers are both from forever 21. they fit well and i consider them great quality for the price. most of my favorite jewelry (like this necklace and this cuff) is from forever 21, and since i plan to play with most trends via accessories in the future, forever 21 is perfect for making a big impact with a little money.
as for thrifting, i’ll probably thrift more. i have a small clothing budget, so i’m pretty frugal all around, but some of my most durable pieces were found in the mckinney goodwill or at plaza thrift (which continues to taunt me). i am continually amazed at the great items people donate and the ridiculously low total i can leave the store with. quality over quantity is the conversation i’ll have to have with myself before i checkout.
i have some bad news, friends. unfortunately, i have to leave for work right this very second, so this saga of the pieces i’ll add to my closet is to be continued… (don’t you just hate it when tv shows do that to you? is it better or worse when it’s a blog post?)
