And I really thought I'd gotten control over this habit of mine. At least when it comes to my own wardrobe. Now, first thing I do every time I walk into one of my old haunts, is beeline straight for the little girl section. Usually I spend so much time looking around for Raegan clothes, I run out of time to browse for myself.
But every once in awhile, I make the time. And.then.I.buy.
I was reminded of this problem again last night, when I made an outfit consisting of items that I've had in my closet for months...and every piece has.never.been.worn.
Brand new jeans purchased in September?
Ever been worn?
I first showed them to you here and talked about how simple it was to construct an outfit around one statement making piece. So why have I never worn them?!?!
Because honestly you guys, I love them! I do!
I love how they're super wide leg, yet hug the top of my legs and bum. Because I'm petite, and it'd be easy to get lost in their width.
And I keep thinking about how to die for they'll look with platform, 70's style sandals and a tucked in v-neck.
And this outfit works for me too.
So why have I put off putting these on?
Plus, I've done it. I've found the perfect jeans to wear with my somewhat over the top leopard print wedge booties.
Oh yea, remember these guys?
Remember how I gushed about being so in love with them here?
And then admitted they wouldn't work for the outfit I had been dreaming about, here?
Well, they've been sitting in their box, collecting dust and patiently waiting to make their debut. I've been so bummed about them not working in the outfit I had been dreaming of, that I haven't given them another chance. Shall I now?
I mean, as a shoe, I'm smitten.
But I'm also like three feet tall...and these are a LOT of boot for a short gal like myself.
But with these pants that basically cover them up, allowing just the hint of a peek-a-boo print... they seem perfecto!
And I do have these flats, if I ever want to try and emulate the aforementioned outfit again...
And as for the shirt, it's really nothing special. And as far as neglected clothes go, it hasn't been in my closet for very long at all...I think I acquired it sometime in December.
Still, I did have to tuck the tags in because I have yet to even consider wearing it seriously enough to take them off.
But I'd totally wear it with this outfit!
And I do like how the cut helps define my shape, proper seaming is a girl's best friend!
If I counted how many clothing items are hanging in my closet or stuffed in my dresser drawers, that still have tags on them, my husband would never let me leave the house with our credit card again. If I included the pieces whose tags were ripped off with intentions to be worn, and then were tossed aside and forgotten...he wouldn't let me leave the house period.
The moral of my story is: I need to start wearing all of my clothes.
Where do you stand? Do you find yourself collecting clothes, like me?
Aaaand...one click is one vote...aaaand...one vote makes me happy!!
