We decided on doing band tees this month. That is actually two months two early. Because I only have two band tees and none of my number one favourite band The Cure!! But as we are going to a The Cure concert in November, I think it’s time to purchase one isn’t it? The link is my ode to Robert Smith, with a wink of course.
Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!
What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?
It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!
So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Band tees!
First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge
I got this tank top on a date night with my husband 3 years ago when we saw Yonder Mountain String Band. It was an amazing show and a wonderful date night but this tank top never fit me properly so I rarely ever wear it. Not the best buy ever, that’s for sure! But it’s small enough to keep as a date night souvenir!

I didn’t have any band tees, so I borrowed this from my friend, Cathie, (@cathiescloset).

This tee is a souvenir from a trip to Portland, Oregon in 2019 – Lydia Loveless opened for the Mountain Goats. It was a good buy, as I remember how much fun that trip was!
And here is my band tee
The Cure is, like I said, my number one band. But after that comes Siouxie and the Banshees. A punk band which sadly doesn’t perfome anymore. And sadly I never seen them live! Of course I had to style this tee the punk way! With a tulle skirt and fantastic punky boots! If you have never heard of the band, here is a link.
November’s theme will be: Work out gear!
Send your photo with a few sentences if it is a Good Buy or a Good-Bye and we will put you in the spotlights! Send it please before the 10th of each month to firstname.lastname@example.org or to email@example.com
