The majority of what I have been wearing lately has been thrifted or upcycled and this has consequently got me interested in a small goal. If you ever listen to lectures on TED.com, you may have heard this speech about not stating goals publicly, but instead talking about your goal after you have accomplished it. The instant gratification we get after getting praised about our upcoming goal frequently shatters the road to the goal itself, because the accomplishment has already been rewarded before we even start. I understand that this is true, and for whatever reason goal stating is a HUGE pet peeve of mine (which I have talked about before, I know, I know.) I don't feel overly ambitious about stating my small, accomplishable goal for the next month because I am currently in the middle of it. For February and March I am only purchasing thrifted clothing (this excludes shoes and jewelry). When I triumphantly reach the end of March, I may tack another month on to it. I am somewhat of a clothing hoarder and buyer doing loads of online shopping, so this is a rather large game plan in my world. As of now, this month has been a success. The reason for this thrifting notion is to achieve a much larger goal. My lips are sealed, though, until said secret larger aim is accomplished. But really, thrifting is great anyway. I've noticed that some Goodwill locations have (finally!) arranged their racks by size. No more weeding through a bunch of XXL tops and dresses I wish would fit. Just a straight beeline to my section. If all the other thrift stores would figure this out I could be a speed thrift shopper to the max.
On a different note, how great is that spiked friendship ring? My Little Fish Eye makes great friendship accessories, much of them studded. I am excited to wear the bracelet she sent as well. Spikes4life. Spikes4evr.
