The budding fashionista is on Facebook!

Posted on

I’m venturing out, people! Because I have committed to not shopping for 6 months (starting February 1st) I figure I will need to keep some sort of outfit log to track what I’m wearing. Remember, my goal is to try not to repeat an entire look in that timeframe. I think I can do it because I haven’t repeated an outfit yet in the past 3 months or so (a look at some of my looks below).

I am not a mathematician/statistician. If I did a closet inventory and calculated the different outfits I can create combining my tops with pants/skirts/shorts, plus include dresses/jumpsuits/rompers, I would technically be able to tell you if it’s even mathematically possible for me to achieve this feat. But, a mathematician I am not. I suppose I could enlist in the help of Mrs. Bratton, my beloved calculus teacher from high school, but I’ll leave her alone for now.  So, we’ll just have to take it day by day and document it….via Facebook (I do typically post outfits on Instagram, but I know some of you are not active on Instagram)!

Yes, the budding fashionista is joining the Facebook world! If you follow me, you’ll be able to keep track of my outfits of the day (#ootd for all you Instagrammers and hashtag lovers) and maybe even get a few style ideas.

Plus, there’s another reason to follow….drum roll, please!

Sale alerts! I don’t blog every day–there are just not enough hours in the day to be a mom, overnight news producer…AND full-time blogger. But, I do have the time for a regular FB post.

Often, I’ll get great deals or find out about a great sale and I want to shout it from the mountain tops! Now, I can shout it from the virtual mountain that is Facebook.

If there are specific stores you would like me to post on, let me know and I’ll do my best to stay informed for you!

You can certainly expect sale alerts for places like Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Piperlime, J.Crew, Francesca’s, Lotus Boutique, etc. etc. etc. the list goes on.

Please don’t expect me to get too excited about ALL of the deals, i.e. buy one full priced dress, get the second half off. or 25% full priced sweaters. Nope, not my kind of deals. I’ll be sharing things like, 40-50% off full price and/or sale items. If it’s not a deal I find fabulous, I probably won’t post it.

Thanks for following me as I continue to balance my journey through fashion and finances!

    What a great goal to commit to! Last year I put myself on a shopping ban and found that I enjoyed the creativity of coming up with new outfit ideas even more than the buzz of buying something new. And I’m sure six months will fly by – good luck!

      Thank you! I’m kind of nervous yet excited! The worst I can do is repeat an outfit, but I figure since the seasons will be changing in the middle of the experiment, I will stretch it a little more!
