My closet is full, not stuffed but definitely full of some wonderful and even more not so wonderful pieces. How did this happen? Let me explain and tell me if this happens to you. I am in a store and the moment I spot the sale and clearance section, I immediately zoom to those racks first. The larger the discount the more attractive the clothing appears to me (in the moment). My rationalization to myself when the jacket or skirt or whatever doesn't exactly fit or isn't the most flattering color or doesn't go with anything else I already own is that it is such a fabulous deal that I can always wear it around the house if nothing else. Do I in fact wear the item out of the house? Of course not because when I get dressed I ask myself the following question:
1. If I ran into an old boyfriend or the "mean" girl from high
school and had this article of clothing on...would I walk up to that person and say
hello or would I slink out a side door? If the answer is I would slink
out then I should not wear it (which tells me I should never have purchased it to begin with).
Starting right now one of my
fashion resolutions is to only buy clothing I feel fabulous in, would be
willing to buy at full price and have at least 2 items in my closet it can
be paired with. Oh yes....its also needs to be something I would never
slink out a side door in.
What are your fashion resolutions?
