Make 2011 Your Year to Shop Your Wardrobe

G’day and welcome to blog #100 of My Story.  This is my last blog posting under this format.  Next year, things will change around here.  The focus of the blog will be different, I won’t be numbering the posts, or finishing every one with “Right?” like I have for every single one of these 100 … Continue reading

Lessons Learned from My Year Without Clothes Shopping

Wednesday marked the conclusion of My Year Without Clothes Shopping.  A year doing anything gives you a lot of opportunity to learn a lot of things.  You don’t have to learn them, of course.  You can drift along, following the rules on paper but not letting it really sink in.  I didn’t want that to … Continue reading
