I feel pretty good about having accumulated just one new thing so far. There are a few things I'm actively looking for currently - more about that another day - but so far I haven't been tempted to go thrifting too much. I am still savouring the idea of the twelve pieces, and I've been successfully shopping my own closet. Case in point: this blouse I am wearing today. It used to belong to my mother, and I saved it from her attic years ago. I came across the blouse last week while looking for a pair of trousers I had stored away in the basement. I had almost forgotten that I had it.

1 of 12
First of the twelve, 2012: the "man boots", aka the Beat Cassadys by John Fluevog. I've had my eye on these shoes for a long, long time. Chris got them in olive green way back when, and he's been raving about them ever since. I waited and waited for the black ones to go on sale, and worried about the men's sizing (they are not unisex). Well, it turns out that men's 7 fits me perfectly, and with the price having dropped from $235 to $119, I can't complain.
The boots are actually a present from Chris, but I am still counting them as one of the twelve items of clothing I'm allowing myself to buy this year. After all, I chose them, and I would have bought them if Chris hadn't. To not count them in would have been cheating.
