Clothes shopping! Gulp

Okay, I hardly ever buy myself something new to wear. I always feel that I shouldnt and I end up buying the twins or my DH clothes instead. Since Ive gained weight Ive havent wanted to buy anything either for that very reason. :( But lately Ive felt so lumpy and dumpy. I need a change. So Im getting ready to cut my hair, maybe cut some bangs, and change my wardrobe alittle.

I just found a new blog that I just love. Its Workthatwardrobe. Jane has made a challange of not buying any new clothes for a YEAR and only using what she has. Shes put some cute outfits together. Ive gotton some great ideas so far.

Well, today I bought my first pair jeans in a long time. I usually get them from a yard sale or hand me downs. I got the idea from Janes blog. Their Gap Curvy jeans ( and man do I have Curves!!) and after researching the web I found that soooo many people say these are the greatest jeans. So for two days Ive been trying to find a great deal on Ebay. These jeans are $70 new at Gap!!! YIKES. but I found them on ebay for $32.50 shipped. Hopefully they fit. I got a size 10, low rise, flared legs, Rhinestone on the back pockets (SCORE! I love rhinestones) and their dark wash to make me look thinner! Yippie. This picture is probably a size zero because they look so thin in the legs compared to all the others ones Ive seen. LOL

Oh and shes got some Mary Janes from Clarks that I WANT!!!!!!!! (Lissa if you read this go check them out!) They are sparkly! Too die for!

Anyway, Im on a mission to find some nice tops and some new tennis to go with my new jeans. Ive always wanted Converse tennis and when I saw Janes I knew I had to get some. So maybe thats my new ebay hunt.

I'm going to have to check out that website. I used to be a clothes horse before I had my own house. Now all of my extra money (ha! like there's a lot of it) goes towards bills, decorating and buying stuff for my son. I rarely buy new clothes now. I'll have to follow you lead and look for some bargains on Ebay. Let me know how you like those jeans!

Hi Ellie, thanks for visiting my blog.
Gap Curvy Jeans are the best ever. I have two pairs and when I can start spending again I will invest in another pair.
As for the Clark's boots can you let me know which date they were featured as I have several items of Clarks footwear.
I am enjoying reading your blog too:)

Can't wait to check out that site. I need a boost in my wardrobe, but would rather spend my money elsewhere - usually.

Ellie, From what I could see of you in the picture on the horse you still look great. It sounds like you found a great deal on jeans. I hope you find more things that you love. I have to buy clothes for work. But, I do not plan to spend much for the up coming season. I just bought 3 pairs of capri's. I'll need to buy a few tops and shoes. I do get at great deal on them in the store I work for. I am trying not to spend any more money on anything that we don't have to have. I am just not use to it! But, I am doing well so far.

Hi there.
Th Clarks boots are several years old I am afraid. I bought them in winter 2005!

Nice pair of jeans I want a pair! I buy nearly everything online including my clothes which I get from several sites including Peacock Clothing. I think I will give Ebay a look and see what bargains I can grab from there. Thanks for the tip.
