I've been reading loads of shopping and fashion blogs lately and I'm amazed by the amount of clothing people buy! I adore looking at clothes, holding skirts up to blouses, and touching soft sweaters, but 99% of the time, I leave a store empty-handed.
My method for clothes shopping is a terrible one. I don't browse stores, selecting individual pieces here and there when the mood strikes. Right before the start of the school year, I clean out my closet of tattered and torn garments, and shop-til-I-drop for a new wardrobe that will take me through fall and winter. I find two or three things that I like and buy them in every color. Tim Gunn would be disgusted with me.
Spring comes. Lather, rinse, repeat. It's ridiculous, but this has been my modus operandi for the last umpteen years, and Chicago wasn't kidding when they said it's a hard habit to break. Although I don't really think they were talking about shopping in that song.
