‘You don’t need really expensive clothes to look cute’ – Christy Romano
So it’s no word of a lie that since I lost a bit of weight on Weight Watchers (albeit 10 years ago but i’m pretty much manage to keep all 3 stone of it off) it made me become a massive, massive clothes horse. I’ve always loved clothes but when I was bigger, shopping was not a fun experience for me, jeans and trouser shopping was particularly hellish and more often than not I would come home in tears because nothing fit.
Now that I’m slimmer, shopping is a joy again and I can spend hours (and I mean hours – just ask Steph!) trawling through sale rails or charity shops. I’m not the kind of girl who could ever have a capsule wardrobe – I change my mind too much and I like to have choice. I love a bargain and take pride in what I wear so since I was getting asked regularly where my clothes were from on Insta, I created #NewmansCloset and tagged were I get my togs from.
Another seemingly popular series of mine is when I do my seasonal ‘What I Wore’ posts on the blog where I run down what I stepped out in over December/Christmas/New Year seeing as that’s when I tend to go out the most. So I thought, since people seem to like it, I would extend that serious to a monthly run down of what’s been featured on #NewmansCloset for anyone who may have missed it:
