One of the most annoying things about every January is that, just as I make my New Year resolution to spend less on clothes (beginning with a ban on shopping in January), there are a ton of great sales. As winter drags on, all of my warm, thick sweaters (uh, all 3 of them) start to pill and I’m sick of them since I wear them constantly. I start to think that something new – a poppy red sweater, an icy blue turtleneck – is just the thing to pull me out of my frozen funk.
This year, I’ll probably still do the shopping ban, because it’s tradition and because it really feels like a way to get the year started off right.
And really, how happy is another sweater going to make me? I don’t even look good in turtlenecks!
