Why I Quit Watching What Not To WearPosted: January 8, 2012
I used to love watching “What Not to Wear.” The bizarre combinations of clothes people chose before their big style transformation entertained and sometimes shocked me. The hosts of the show, Stacy and Clinton, proved to be amusing. They were also miracle workers. After 30 minutes of viewing I usually asked myself, “How does the person I saw at the beginning of the show now look like THAT?”
After a while, I started noticing how discontent I felt after tuning into the show. I yearned for new pointy shoes, coats tailored for every occasion and cute yet sophisticated outfits. I wanted to shop and buy more. So, I stopped watching.
I still love new shoes, sweaters and every other type of outfit. I also enjoy the mall (when it is not crazy-busy with screaming children and haggled mothers running into me), but I’m glad I don’t watch What Not To Wear anymore. I’m more satisfied with the clothes I already own. Someday when my future children’s education is paid for and I no longer have to worry about my mortgage…I’ll tune into their program again.
Are there any shows that make you want to spend your entire paycheck?
