Me too, they are improving, but still don't have all the items modelled, I think not even a half.
I don't have any problems with any kind of sleeves and with fit of the clothes in general (except in finding pants that are long enough, as I mentioned before).
And of course I don't mind.

My degrees are unfortunately already being wasted by the Portuguese economy, so... My boyfriend started suggesting we started our own business. Of course I mentioned this idea. He didn't seem interested. I already had a slogan and all... "Owning your b*tches for you"

I agree that COS should have pictures of the clothes worn. I often wander on that website trying to understand whether the clothes are loose or fitted or anywhere inbetween.
Jinadaze, if you're unsure, I'd wait - the sales are what, two weeks away or something like that?

I think they begin in July.

And I hear you about finding the job, I think economy in our country is currently similar as in yours ... it's horrible indeed as it invades in many aspects of life, but I know many people who found their jobs in recent months and I am sure you will to, just don't give up and keep trying ...

Ah, in here they start in July too, but in mid-late June there are already "promotions", whre most items are nicely priced down and start selling out

Thank you, I'm trying to keep positive. And yes, I think Slovenia is in a similar situation... Congrats on getting a job, btw!

Hi everyone!!

Sorry for being away for soooo long but I needed some time off. We went on a holiday in the beginning of May and I just didn't want to spend any money on clothing / shoes / accessories... And it worked! I paid less attention to the online stores and pinterest and all those sources of inspiration. And I suddenly felt a lot less "in need" of buying anything.

Now I will allow myself my three sales items when the sale starts. I have a little lists with items I am watching:
  • A pair of flat sandals
  • A necklace
  • A scarf
  • A short sleeved blouse
  • A clutch
  • A pair of loafers or slippers

What I'll get will depend on what goes on sale and with what reduction... I'm excited already! But it definitely felt great to give spending a break and enjoy what is in my wardrobe!

R&N, good to have you back! sounds good, taking a break. hope you had a lovely holiday.

Jin, I like that COS dress, but jersey is perhaps not the ideal material for the sort of dress you want... still, it's hard to say - if it's thick jersey, it will drape differently from when the material is thinner... hmmmn. a couple thoughts: COS usually has a lot of good dresses, perhaps this one is not The One, but they might have something else? also, their returns-system is very easy and returns are free (at least from the Netherlands). perhaps it is worth taking a chance? sale will start in a couple weeks, and before then, they have a code for free shipping (the code is: SUMMERTREAT)

@Eva: wow - and I thought my 3 weddings this year was a lot! Is all of the weddings with the same guests? If not maybe you can use some of the dresses more than once. That is what I would do.

Did you sort out your jacket situation?

@Jina: I am not quite sure what I would do about the dress. I guess it depends on how much you wanted. If you would not be too disappointed if it is gone by the time the sales start I would probably wait. Especially since it is jersey and therefore maybe not what you are looking for.

@Red: welcome back - you have been missed. Taking a break from all the materialism can be nice once in a while Looking forward to see what you will be getting in the sales.

---------

I sort of ordered a maxidress. Which was not part of my plan, and I am still not sure wether it will work out for me.

I love maxidresses but have sold all of the ones I have owned previously since they were all coloured/patterned which is not really my thing at the moment. Yesterday I saw a nice one on a blogger; black, spaghettistraps and low back. Very nice and appropriate for fall as well paired with boots and a leather jacket (which is pretty inmportant since the summer is only so long..). Assuming it looks good on me I guess it will be a nice addition since I love maxi dresses for summer and although I believed that my summer wardrobe where well-stocked it is appearently not the case.

I was hoping to keep within 10 purchases this season, but this one will be my 7th should I keep it. And my season does not end until August. Not sure how that will turn out since I probably will go thrifting when going to Berlin this summer. And also have a couple of things on my list from the AW collections, that will be in stores in the beginning of August. I guess it does not matter as long as I am focused on buying the right things.

^If it makes you feel any better, I can't keep to the 4-5 per season either. I just try to buy less, and better.

Hopefully if the items I get are good enough they will last and I can buy less and less as time passes

It does :p

And I am buying less and better, and I guess that is what is important. Also I can see a clear improvement from last season. For AW12 I bought 6 items within the first two months - in the second month i bought 5 (!) items. I am halfway through my season and I have bought 6 items. Two in March, Three in April and one in May. 3 of these being winter items.

I'm with eizhowa on this one - I also focus on buying less things, getting my wear out of them, and getting better quality things that will last me a while. I think you're doing great, Betina.

Maybe after one year I will draw a graph of my purchases per month... I like graphs
