t-shirt and skirt - f21 / belt - gap / sunglasses - h&m / sandals - zara / tote bag - lulu letty
This outfit is full of impulse buys. It's kind of embarrassing to say that I have a lot of these impulse buys in my closet. I bought them because I thought they were cute and had money to spend, but after one wear and the tags torn off, they weren't quite as appealing as they were in the dressing rooms. They now are rotten in my closet. Take this skirt for example. I bought it in Fall and only wore it once. I think the fact that it's mostly black kind of intimidates me since I don't wear a ton of black.
But I'm changing.
I'm really trying to make use of what I already have. I'm also trying to space out my new purchases so the thrill of wearing new things lasts longer. I usually rip off the tags when I get home and wear my new things immediately. I want to break out of this cycle of shopping hauls though. I buy things; wear them; buy more things; forget previous things; wear the newer things; rinse and repeat). Now I don't think this would be bad if I wasn't shopping as frequently as I did. I want to move towards building one cohesive closet--one that makes me want to mix old with new things. I remember vaguely at one point I had a goal of having a minimalistic closet, well I think I've been moving in the opposite directions. While one of its purposes is to document how I wear clothes, blogging has ironically made me so much more frivolous with money and clothes; and whether I find a new job soon or not, I need to change this mindset. Clothes are not disposable.
