'Pamper Yourself' Day 3: Buy a new outfit-BONUS DAY

Posted by   + Show Post

Today's activity is to buy a new outfit.

We often buy our new little ones new clothes before we by ourselves clothes. Today is your turn to buy yourself something- a full outfit, a new shirt, a new pair of pants, or a new pair of shoes. If you aren't able to afford a new outfit right now, you can still look and pick something out that you would buy for yourself.

How often do you shop for new clothes for yourself? What was the last piece of clothing you purchased for yourself? If you were able to buy anything-clothing wise- for yourself, what would it be? Post a photo if you can.

One mom who replies to this post will win a CafeMom Shopping Tote.

Once in a while I'll buy new stuff. I have a fetish of sorts for soft, strong, socks, though. Just bought three new pairs today, even if they were onlyf rom the Dollar Tree, they're still super comfy!

I go window shopping a lot for me and never get myself anything especially since clothes is not cheap. The one thing i seriously want to go shopping for is bras. I breast fed my daughter for 23 months and none of my bras feet an more. I breasts are smaller than they were before i was pregant im barely and i was a 34B. :(

I am still not able to buy new, but I went into the local thrift looking for a wool sweater to cut up for a project, and found a lovely wool sweater - looks brand new - 2 sizes too big - but I will felt it down to my size! Beautiful green/green, too! My favorite color! I don't think it has to be 'new' as much as 'new-to-you'.

I'm thinking along the lines of buying a car - I wouldn't buy new - just to pay extra thousands of $ to have a 'new' car. I'm really not there in buying new clothes just to be the first to wear them or 'be in-style' or at the height of fashion.
