What I Bought

I will be 30 a month from today, and I need a real wardrobe. A wardrobe that looks professional. I made a big dent in that today, with one massive shopping excursion. It was tiring, yes, but there are some good sales (even lower than the Internet sale prices). And now I am well on my way to my goal of a good set of clothes based on taupe and grey neutrals with pink, cream, and purple accent colors.

Here's what came home in the bags (color shown on link may not match the color I purchased):

grey blazer, brown blazer, pink sweater, purple sweater, classic white shirt, dressy-hippie cream-colored shirt, casual pink shirt, cute socks, and supportive bras.

And, on order: camel herringbone pants, to go with the brown blazer.

The bras were ludicrously expensive, but they did make the sweaters look better. A good bra can give the illusion of losing 10 pounds instantly.

Nice stuff! And the color scheme sounds just lovely.

Yeah, Eddie Bauer is my go-to place for clothes. I have that exact same purple cardigan.

30 is going to be THE BEST YEAR EVER.

Woo-hoo! Much as I hate shopping, I do admit to liking it a little better when I (a) find what I want, (b) on sale, and (c) I feel like I can afford it. (That last one is more complicated than it sounds, in that it has little to do with my actual financial situation.) And those were really nice choices on your part--they'll get you through winter and early spring for sure.

Ann: Thanks! Eddie Bauer is definitely great.

I had to narrow down a color scheme because one of my problems is that the few clothes I have do not go with each other. Also, it's nice to wear colors that make me look healthy.

Narya: I am with you about "feeling like I can afford it". Moreover, I have much more trouble spending on clothes than on anything else. Perhaps I feel, on some level, that clothing is not "enriching my mind" in any way.

Thanks, I like my choices a lot! I'm feeling sort of proud, b/c I've always felt like I'm "bad" at shopping and dressing, but I am breaking that notion.
