I almost forgot to mention.
Emily August of GoGoDistro has inspired me to take a two month pledge to not purchase anything "new".
The pledge is as follows:
I, Christina, pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of "new" manufactured items of clothing, for the period of 2 months. I pledge that I shall refashion, renovate, recycle preloved items for myself with my own hands in fabric, yarn or other medium for the term of my contract. I pledge that I will share the love and post a photo of my refashioned, renovated, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftyness brings!
I'm nervous because I'm not much of a sew-er. (Hahahah... I almost wrote "sewer"...)
But there's nothing like baptism by fire, right? And I really need to stop buying so much crap.
I'm pretty psyched about this.
