"To be fair, " I said, "my next bill will have a charge of $5.99 on it. And really, that's got to be more than this outfit is worth!"
Meant as a joke, I looked down and realized it wasn't far from the truth.
The sweater? A hand-me-down from a friend.
The skirt? Borrowed from my sister when she was about 6 months pregnant (her son is now 9 months old)
The belt? Stolen from my mother.
The shoes? Ah man! I actually paid money for these. I think it was about $9.99, but considering they're genuine leather, still a pretty good steal. Especially since that was at least a good 7 years ago and I wear them at least weekly during the summer. Cost per wear is well below one cent!
My secret to having a few shopping... issues... and no credit card debt? I guess it's having good alternate clothing sources!
