I only just realised that over the Xmas/NY break I managed to buy myself a whole new wardrobe for work. Totally unintentional. Just fortunate I found things I liked and fitted.

Anyone else been through that? It just feels good to have nice new clothes to wear and get inspired by.

I didn't buy a whole wardrobe, but I did buy some new clothes just before and just after Christmas. Got good deals on them. It does feel good to wear new clothes.

Enjoy your new wardrobe!

Enjoy yours too! :) I've been tempted by all of the great sales. But, with daughter's wedding coming in September, I have to behave :).

I didn't by an entirely new wardrobe, but I did just buy some new shirts. Three, all in nearly the same color, but different styles.

Is that so you can then misbehave at the wedding? :)

I wish I had the money to accidentally buy a whole new wardrobe. lol I did, however, get quite a few new things between the stuff I got in NYC and what I got for Christmas so I shouldn't complain!

I've realized that I absolutely love shopping for fall and winter clothes. I am too thin to look good in anything summer, my twig legs and arms are just not cute. Much better to hide them in a nice sweater and good pair of jeans. lol Just one more reason to move up north where I can wear such clothes more than 2 weeks a year.

Hehe. I wear scrubs to work. Once in a while (like once or twice a year), I'll buy three or four new pairs of scrubs. "New wardrobe" for work, total cost less than $150. One of the perks of nursing!

Sort of. :lol: But, more that the wedding is eating up any money that would be available for a splurge. Got a new jacket for Christmas, but can't wear it until Spring.

I had to buy new wardrobe when I lost 30 lbs, last year. It was kind of fun to see just what size i could now fit in. I got mostly work clothes, since loose clothing is acceptable for everyday wear.

Mazel tov on losing weight. A new wardrobe really does wonders for morale and I find it helps keep me motivated to keep the weight off. (I also had to buy a new wardrobe after losing a lot, but that was five years ago)

When you all lose weight and need smaller clothes, do you keep he bigger ones? I do. I am so worried I'll gain the weight back and ned them. Consequently, I have clothes that are 15 years old that I won't get rid of, just in case. Fact is, though, they're so out of style, I'd never wear them :lol:

After that many years, they sometimes come back in style.

Congrats on all the new wardrobe purchases & enjoy!

I was responsible over the holidays since I already have too many clothes, but I did find a cute Malandrino sweater on ebay and bought that. Can't say no to dark purple, and that was true for me well before it became a popular color a few years ago :drama:.

I get called frequently to donate to Disabled Veterans, Leukemia Foundation, a local women's shelter, a local children's charity, and a local rescue animal facility so I only have clothes in my current size. If something was very expensive or it's a classic style I might keep it but generally I give away everything that I have outgrown or is too big. OTOH my husband won't get rid of anything. I sneak his stuff in the bag when he's not looking. Otherwise his closet would burst.
