What to Wear This Very Second
From the bottom of the fashion food chain ...
I'm a home-schooling, bible-believing SAHM with an annual clothing budget of about $500 American. The Space Between My Peers reveals my secret passion: analysis of the art and science of what to wear.
Disclaimer: I own one "message shirt" -- a long sleeved hoodie promoting Manolo's shoe blog.
As we look ahead to Fall season next month, what is one item of clothing you will miss in your Summer wardrobe and what is one item you are coveting for Fall?
"Personally, I know that if something looks a little strange but I don't want to take it off, it's set to be a wardrobe favourite."
Shopping these days is so overwhelming that going to the right place is half the battle. In thinking about where you go, the stores that most often carry your size is a great way to narrow things down, then style personality, then
new jeans + summer top + winter layering piece (jacket, sweater, etc)
If you are going to have to have a new winter coat this year, I would definitely take that money and set it aside. The best sales and selection are available in October.
One final thought: you could just budget the same amount for each piece. That would work for me, since I buy most of my stuff thrift. But realistically, if you are shopping in a real store, with real money, that method won't work too well.
Consider that jackets are often double the cost of pants or skirts, and basic tops can be very inexpensive. If you split the money evenly between those three categories, you could potentially buy one jacket, a pant and a skirt, and maybe 5 tops.
Yes, I think I like it.
