The first victim/beneficiary of our #NoUglyClothesChallenge, Annie B., ended her six-month challenge period today (on her birthday!) and successfully didn’t spend a dime on clothes, shoes or accessories. Give this girl some major props!
I did get a few texts over the months about what she should do when someone stole her sunglasses while on a work shoot. And about when her flip flops broke. And about when she ripped her pants. But she found creative solutions for each without spending any money: borrowing a pair that someone no longer wanted, using a gift card she forgot she had, and tying a jacket around her waist, respectively.
But the bottom line is that she did it! And she has a LOT more money in her bank account that she otherwise would have had. And you know what she said to me? She said she wants me to come back and pair down her closet even MORE! She saw the value in just having items that look good on her.
And then there are the rewards. She was promised a black “work bag” if she kept her spending within budget and a BONUS at $0 spend of any pair of black heels she wanted. Here’s what she picked:
1. Gorgeous Prada black & red tote
2. Christian Louboutin pumps
You’re welcome and happy birthday, Annie!
What great, classic items, right? Stay tuned for more updates from Annie and our #NoUglyClothesChallenge. And let me know if you want to be next. Next Closet Takeover is in January. Our goal is to help women spend less and look their best. Hope you get on board!
