Weeks 27-28 Challenge

4 Sep

Wow, I can’t believe it, this challenge actually marks the half-way point of the SpendThrift Experiment! It’s crazy to think that I’ve been at this for 6 months now! I think that sometime in the next week I’m going to have to do a little recap of everything that I have bought for the Experiment so that this half-anniversary sinks in, I still can’t believe how quickly time has flown by!

Although some parts of the experiment have changed a little (like rule tweaks here and there) and other parts have changed a lot (like switching from one week to two week challenges, oh and that whole getting a real job thing…) I think that I’ve managed to keep the essence of what I originally set out to do. Hopefully the next 6 months are as great as the first and I continue to get some great deals and fashion finds 😮

Ok so now onto the challenge! Continuing with my “I need a new wardrobe for Paris!” theme, I have decided that I need a pair of skinny jeans to pair with my brown riding boots (I’ve had these for a few years and am wearing them in a few pictures from earlier challenges) and the black motorcycle boots that I added to the Weeks 23-24 Challenge (I promise that I’ll write Part 2 of the Triumph or Tacky? for this sometime this week!).

Rag & Bone $185


Now I have to admit that I am approaching this challenge with some trepidation. As I’ve mentioned before I am not a tall woman, nor do I have long thin legs (my legs are definitely on the more muscular side) so finding a pair of skinny jeans that are actually flattering could be difficult. However, I think that I’m up for the challenge and hopefully I can find something that works with my body type. For the time being I’m going to use the jeans above from Rag & Bone as inspiration.

Wish me luck!
