Resisting Retail: My Wardrobe Photo Library


If you’ve been reading my blog, you know that I’m on this Resisting Retail Challenge where I’m not buying clothes for a year. As promised, I have photographed every item in my closet that I plan on wearing for the next 365 days (this doesn’t include fitness items, sleepwear or undies). I was nervous about starting this challenge because I really enjoy thrift shopping. As I lined up all of my clothes and labeled them, I quickly discovered that I had a lot of choices.

Here are the stats:

55 Tops
13 Pants
7 Jackets & Blazers
4 Pairs of Shorts
31 Skirts Dresses

It just goes to show you that I’m pretty much equipped not to shop for a while. If you think of it with a worldly perspective, the amount of clothes I have is really excessive in comparison to someone who only has one outfit that they wear out of the house and one to wear at home. I’m truly blessed, right where I am, to have so many options. It’s not about warmth or coverage, I’ve dipped into the style and self expression pool. I’m thankful and grateful but it’s time to stop shopping and start styling with what I have available. So without further ado, here are my clothes. If you want to participate in the challenge, feel free to pick out an outfit and leave your thoughts in a comment. I’ll wear the items you chose and post them on my blog. Click on a set of items for a closer look. Have courage.
