Here is my (out-of-focus) drabby shot:
It's me in my PJ's, with Rosemary's Baby bouncing around behind me (because it's really too much to ask to be left alone for 5 minutes on my bed in the morning, right?!). I think Bert's expression pretty much says it all.
But look at how much better I look a short time later (try to ignore all that clutter on my kitchen counter)!
My hair is brushed, I'm wearing a little lip gloss. And do you like my new skirt? No, I didn't go back on my no-impulse-shopping plan. I used up some (rather loud) fabric from my stash and made myself a very simple A-line skirt! It's like shopping, but without the guilt!
The moral of the story is, if you're going to go all minimalist and anti-consumer, you should do it after a series of really big shopping sprees...
