Is any of this familiar?
- You’re caught up in the cycle of shopping for more and more, but you’re wearing less and less. Your wardrobe is jam packed with items that you thought you wanted and needed… and yet you aren’t wearing a fraction of all you have.
- You want to feel good about your shopping habits, about your clothing and wardrobe, about your finances, and about yourself. You want to feel that your life is full and interesting and meaningful in your own terms. But right now, that isn’t what’s happening.
- Shopping for more and more isn’t making you feel good. At least it’s not making you feel good for longer than it takes to get home and hang up your new clothes in the closet, right next to the other clothes you had such high hopes of and then only wore once, or not at all.
If this is you, you’re not alone. Far from it. Like many women-
You’re looking for style in all the wrong places.
And that’s because style isn’t found in the mall. Sure, you can find fashion in the mall, and you can find pieces you like, or even love. Clothes, shoes, accessories – it’s all there to be purchased. But those items won’t give you style.
Style is an “inside job”.
“Having lots of clothes doesn’t make you stylish. I learned this from the year-long program. I also learned that I am enough and I don’t need more clothes to validate myself as a human being.“ – Francesca Tulk – My Year Without Clothes Shopping Program Member
Introducing the 12 Month Intensive Program
The My Year Without Clothes Shopping 12 Month Intensive Program is designed to help women who shop too much to stop, or at least cut down.
- For women who don’t know where to start or what to do to stop the cycle of unconscious shopping.
- Stop searching for style in all the wrong places, and to bring you back home to yourself, to where style really lives.
- Help you return to a place where you feel good about your shopping, yourself, your wardrobe and your finances.
- Stop triggered shopping where you’re seeking to fulfill an (often unconscious) emotional need or to fill that “I don’t want to miss out!” emotion that is so often provoked in the messages we receive.
- Reduce or stop the bad feelings after you shop. After shopping, you feel guilty, you feel embarrassed or ashamed, some of you might even feel greedy, and feeling confused and overwhelmed. Stop that terrible feeling of “Why did I buy all this stuff?! Now I’ve got it, I can’t imagine why I wanted it, and I’m fairly sure I don’t need it!”
- Stop the cycle of unconscious shopping, and come home to a place where you feel great about yourself, your shopping, your wardrobe and your wallet.
- Journey back to conscious clothes consumption.
Robyn: I Am a Better Person Than I Realised
I signed up for Jill’s program feeling desperate. Despite repeated attempts to stop clothes shopping and a lot of self-laceration, I had achieved a bad habit over several decades, leading to unsustainable credit-card debt, serious cheating on the family finances and, of course, a lot of guilt.
Jill welcomed me to the rest of my life. Her program is practical, positive and sustaining. It asks for commitment and sometimes asks hard questions, but it’s also fun and very informative. I can’t speak too highly of what it can achieve if you go with it.
Robyn Colman is a cat-lover and retired copyeditor who battles inner chaos and a messy desk. She also reads at industrial speed, listens to jazz and chamber music, and loves C17th Dutch and Flemish art.
Francesca: I Am Enough
When I found Jill and her website, I was immediately drawn to her honesty and thought-provoking concept. Shop My Wardrobe sounded great and as I was $22 000 in credit card debt with nothing except a walk-in wardrobe full of unworn clothes to show for it, I knew I had to take part.
As a result of participating in this program I have come to understand that “I am enough“. I don’t need 50 animal print jackets or two hundred pairs of jeans to validate myself as a human being. Spending thousands of dollars on credit for clothes I didn’t even want, but which for a nano-second made me feel important, just wasn’t worth it.
What I like most about this program is the fact that is is non-judgmental. I received a lot of criticism for what I had done with my money, but never once did I feel I had been a “naughty girl” by Jill. I love that Jill walks her talk and has brought together real people, with real ideas — doable ideas — and all wrapped up in an understanding and caring manner.

Tamara: I Don’t Need to Buy More Things To Enjoy Life
When I initially read about Jill Chivers’ Shop Your Wardrobe program I signed up immediately.
The most important change Shop Your Wardrobe has brought into my life has been the realization that I do not need to buy things or spend money to enjoy life or feel better. Somewhere along life’s journey, I forgot how to say “no” to myself when it came to spending. Jill’s program has provided me with tools to help me say “no” to over-shopping and to enjoy it!
The resources, tools, and materials available throughout this program are so far above and beyond what I ever could have imagined.
I already know that, when my year is complete, I will have made significant and positive changes in my life. And it won’t end there. I will be returning to lessons I want experience more fully.
I would recommend this program to anyone who wears clothes and wants to improve their financial status. It is that good.
Tamara Shapiro now has the resources, tools and materials to make positive change to her life – a life she can now experience fully and freely. Tamara lives in Denver, Colorado.
If you have been caught in the cycle of buying more and more, but are wearing less and less of what you bring home, this program is for you.

What should I expect when I join?
Why you need this program
Many people who attempt to break bad habits, no matter what they are — from losing weight to stopping smoking to addressing an over-shopping problem, fail.
Why? Because they make this #1 mistake: they don’t set themselves up to succeed because they think they can do it entirely on their own without any help. Personal challenges are exactly that – they are personal to you and they are a challenge for you.
If you could have addressed the situation on your own and using the resources you already have, you most likely would have.
If you have a problem with shopping too much for clothes and you are serious about creating healthier habits, set yourself up to succeed.
Join this 12 month intensive program and put structures in place that give you the greatest chance to achieve your goal of getting your shopping back on track.
“Jill has the ultimate street cred.” – Barbara Beizer, Washington
