Thx for the congrats
Actually, for me it will probably mean buying less items, since I haven't been to good at keeping the 5 item limit. Think the limit gave me some kind of pressure. Maybe 10 items is better for me.
I haven't fully decided yet what counts as an item. I don't consider belts, jewelry and scarves and item. I rarely buy them anyway, and when I do, I thrift. I just haven't decided wether to count basics or not, and what is basics? For me, I think, it is items that is used a lot and therefore needs to be replaced once in a while. Like underwear, tights and basic tees. A little black dress, jeans, a good bag AND the pistols (
) is also basics for me, but they will not need replacement in the same way that the real basic stuff does. I have to buy a new striped shirt. I bought one as a replacement for the one I've had for 3 ½ years, and still wear, because I have not had any luck finding one as perfect as this, but the replacement was too big.. I'm considering wether the stripe tee should go as basics or one of my 10 pieces. I probably use it just as much as a white tanktop or even more, but still.
