No Purchase Club (January -AND- February 2011) - Page 15

post #211 of 251
Does this count as an infraction? I added myself to a cloth subscription at the loundon lounge. I won't have to pay for several months probably so I figured it was ok. On the other hand, I felt like I was lying to myself since the decision is taken today even if its to be paid later... I guess thats one infraction.

I have sinned.

I passed by a vintage clothing shop, and went in. Bad move number one.

I then noticed a pair of vintage white calf leather oxfords (almost identical to the AE Park Ave in style), in my size, with minimal wear on original soles and heels. I had been watching Jeeves and Wooster the night before (bad move number two), and visions of Bertie in white oxfords danced in my head.

The interiors were almost pristine. I realised they would be a fine addition to my other summer shoes. I tried them on. Perfect fit. I checked the price. $40.

Sold.

Returned a pair of shoes that were bought a while ago. +$240.
Bought a pair of gray slacks from H&M. -$30, -$15 for alterations. Total -$45.
Grand total. +$195

In my defense, I didn't have a single pair of gray slacks and I really felt the need to own one to wear many clothes that I own better.

Dear No-Purchasers,

Thank you for not purchasing anything recently. Your lack of competition on ebay and B&S items have resulted in a bountiful harvest at rock bottom prices for the rest of us.

Sincerely,

Harvey

We have 12 days left on the challenge.

Thought I'd post photos of the instrument of my downfall: No idea who made them, or where, but the size is "9 91/2 E" and they fit more like a D. The serial number is 8801 63 804 - does anyone know how I could find out the maker?

still going strong. Sold a bunch of pocket squares. That's it. Although it is starting to get a bit cold and I don't own a jacket. And I am getting a bit sick but I think it has more to do with all the studying for finals.

Some inspiration for you all...this girl loves clothes and is pretty fashionable so if she can do it for a whole year, I think you guys can manage a couple months.
