Nashville — The idea started in 2009 over lunch with my friend Elissa, someone I like but rarely see february. She strolled in to the restaurant putting on a installed black layer with a collar that is high.
“Wow, ” I said admiringly. “Some coat. ”
She stroked the sleeve. “Yeah. Year i bought it at the end of my no-shopping. We nevertheless feel only a little bad about any of it. ”
Elissa explained the story: After traveling for a lot of the last 12 months, she had decided she had sufficient material, or a lot of material. She made a pledge that for year she’d buy shoes, n’t clothing, purses or precious precious jewelry.
