For those of you who've read all of my posts, you know I've got a little thing for "basics." I love white v-necks, I love Uggs, I love jean shorts. Granted, not all together. I'm not really down with the Uggs and bare legs look, but still. I like plain things. I also make purchases based on how often I intend to wear the garment. "Where could I wear it?" "What shoes/pants/jewelry could I pair this with?" "Is it work appropriate?" "Do I have anything similar to it already?" This question/answer session each time I shopped has resulted in a PAINFULLY LACKLUSTER WARDROBE. I know, because I have been forced to pick and choose from the same items since April 1. Barf, dude.
I honestly don't think you understand how hard this is. I understand some people don't worry about clothes. But ever since I was little, I have had this desire to be that girl. The one who is impeccably dressed and fabulous. Sort of like my Grandma Edith :) And the fact of the matter is, I am just not that girl. I don't think I ever have been. I am pretty normal. I stay within the fashion bounds. I wear what is comfortable and basic and wearable. I AM BORING. And I am pretty sick of it.
I am so sick of it to the point where I literally hate what I am wearing every-day-of-the-week. Hate. Like, I leave the house miserable. I could not tell you the last time I thought, "I look awesome." You know the feeling- when you're rocking your favorite jeans, your tallest heels, and your hair looks like a commercial. I mean... thank you SO much Dez (@Graebers) for helping with the hair part. Because without that, I feel like I don't currently have much else. I am so sick of my boring clothes!
SO, here is my pledge...
After April 1, I refuse to make another boring purchase. I flat out refuse. Life is too short to hate what you're wearing, it really is. So bring on the embellishments, the impractical shoes, and the dress I may only wear once. My closet is BEGGING for some MAJOR MOMENTS and I promise you, dear closet, you'll get them. My first purchase is going to be oozing with glamour, and I am going to make fashion my full time job. Because clearly it makes me happy, and feeling awesome makes me happy... and right now, my closet is making me flat-out unhappy.
P.S. OK OK OK. I probably will still buy white v-necks. But you bet your bottoms I'll be pairing them with over the top necklaces and some killer wedges. Particularly, these:
