This year for Lent, after abstaining for 4 years, I decided I would give something up. That something was shopping. All shopping. Thrift shopping, internet shopping, high street shopping. All shopping apart from food shopping. This fell flat on it’s face when I frequented a number of charity shops and decided that I couldn’t live without a pair of kitten heels, a scarf and a jacket. And then the next day I couldn’t live without a fur coat from a second hand store.
After this, my Lent promise was amended so that I couldn’t go high street shopping, and if I did buy anything from a charity shop, I couldn’t wear it until Lent was over.
So far, the Lent promise still stands – and you can read all of my Lent related Outfit Posts by clicking on ‘Lent’ in my category cloud.
