Up until this past year I have never been one to have a clothing fetish. I honestly just couldn’t understand some women’s obsessions with shopping for clothes. I always felt just fine in my jeans, boots, and plain top. No need for me to “waste money” on clothing.
Last year I got a new job, this time I wasn’t hiding out in an office all by myself. I was representing a company and interacting with potential customers. I had to dress nice. I remember the week before I started the job, my mom and I went clothes shopping. I was so used to dressing bland and just blending in that I literally felt uncomfortable in everything.
I managed to pick a few outfits. They were by no means flashy but they were much more sophisticated than my normal attire . My first day on the job was full of nerves. I was in a new place with new people and wearing clothes that were outside of my comfort zone. I fidgeted the entire day.
By the second week I started to adjust to my new wardrobe, and strangely enough I started getting excited about dressing up. When I put on my nice clothes I felt more in control, the clothing had started to become my instant confidence booster. If I looked the part, I could surely play the part. And just like that my love affair with clothing began.
Now I have become a designer clothing bargain shopper. Heading to upscale consignment shops every other weekend has become one of my new hobbies. I sort through racks just looking for the hidden treasures. It’s amazing just how good you can make yourself look by getting a new wardrobe. And the great thing is that my new wardrobe is full of high dollar clothing that I got for less than the clothing you would find in a JC Pennys.
My Favorite Places to Shop
Consignment- Snooty Fox for all of you Ohians and Kentuckians -Seriously awesome finds here!
Department- Gabriel Brothers this is where I get all of my basic clothing, kids clothing, socks etc. The majority of their shirts are in the $2.99-$6.99 range. You can’t beat their prices for new clothing and they have a lot of nice, inexpensive houseware items also.
