Confessions of a Shopaholic
Okay, remember those beauty stats I shared before (here)? Well, this time I'm sharing something that's even more relevant to this fashion blog - clothes, and the money we spend on them. I know a lot of girls are learning to be more thrifty (hey, thrift stores are the first places I go to when I'm looking for something). But I find these statistics rather believable despite that. I mean, if I crunched all the numbers, I don't want to think about how much I spend on everything in my closet...
Check it out.
Okay, the 271 shoes over the years stat is a little crazy for me to believe (who has a closet that big?? And if you have one, want to share??) Haha, but the last statement is something I completely agree with. I've stopped reading fashion magazines as obsessively as I used to because they always give me a drive to go out and shop for more things. Whatever is on the "Top 10 Items for Spring" page is bound to end up in my closet. I've distanced myself from that though, because after having clothes and shoes spilling out of my closet for the past few months, I've realized I've got enough.
Now I know, this blog is called Trendy Teal, but that was when I first started it. Today, I like to wear whatever I feel like wearing, not just trends. And while I still like to dig through thrift shops to find something that could freshen up my closet now and then, I no longer have an urge to do a major shopping haul.
