i posted this on another forum but it applies
recently i purchased a pair of mmm boots for around $300 and it made me realize i don't even want to spend that much money on clothes at the moment. i ended up returning them cause $300 is a whole lot of food, concert tickets, and other shit.
my problem is that my wardrobe really isn't that big, though i feel almost satisfied with it (for the upcoming season, anyway). with the addition of the recent uniqlo linen pants and button downs i got, i should be good in that department (although i do have to exchange the button downs for a smaller size but that's whatever). for shoes the only pair i've been eyeing lately are white slip on vans which i'll get soon and are cheap. all i really want right now is another jacket because i only have one and it's literally all i wear for outerwear... my issue is i'm not exactly sure what i want, so it may be my last expensive purchase for a while. i saw an eg bomber on rakuten and didn't buy it and i'm really regretting waiting cause fuck it was so nice.
another thing i've noticed is how content i am with my wardrobe is very dependent on how i'm feeling about myself. probably 3-4 months ago i was kind of happy with my wardrobe and the way it was, but then i started experimenting and changed my style pretty drastically. at the moment i'm generally satisfied with how things are going so i'm content about what i'm wearing as i really do use to express myself (i try to use lots of colors, albeit generally not loud, and relaxed clothes).
and honestly, i don't really cop a lot to begin with. since the beginning of the year i've purchased maybe 10 things? give or take a couple. the thing is also with me is that i so very rarely see something and think to myself "wow i have to have that" and if i do it's most likely out of my price range. i mean hell i'm a college student working part time, i make around $700 every month which is really not a lot for clothes. plus with gas, insurance, and anything else i don't have a choice in spending, i'm down to around ~500 and that's nothing.
i think i'll take a break in copping (unless i find a jacket that i like that's not too much, cause as i said before i only have one atm and have been looking for one forever). and also plain tee's and shit cause mine keep disappearing..
also i'm moving soon and i'm really determined in getting my room to how i like it because i fucking hate my room how is right now. it's so ugly and the layout is ugh so i'll probably spend money on new sheets and room decorations and stuff. thinking some candles and tapestries (any other suggestions? or room layouts. i'm all ears )
