So, when I read this article in yesterday's Style Section, I knew I had just been introduced to a kindred spirit. Recessionista is my new BFF...at least my new virtual BFF. I have always been a Recessionista...but...I never knew it! Even when I made six figures as a lawyer I loved that rush of buying something for less. God love long lunches with my partner in crime (you know who you are) at sample sales across town in some shady building on 7th Avenue undressing in front of a hundred women in a huge fitting room fighting over the few full-length mirrors. Plus, that meant that I could spend more on a beautiful bag and great perfume!
I've put a moratorium on shopping over the last few months. It's the guilt again and nowadays things just aren't what they once were. I'm not bragging that much anymore about my shopping discount finds because I'm simply not shopping. Okay, okay, except I went to BCBG on Fifth Avenue the other day and bought a sweet new sweater dress to wear to the exhibit in Canada. There...I admitted it. And, I didn't even have time to shop in Canada so in that case, there's nothing to feel guilty about (today)!
So, check this article out and read this fun blog. Also, for other general fashion goodness, you must see The Sartorialist. Part of being fashionable is making up your own style - whether you wear the hottest label or make an outfit yourself, buy it online or buy it on Ebay or at the Salvation Army, if you wear it with confidence, it looks fabulous.
