Yes, I have a bit of an obsession with shopping and fashion and if you’re reading this, you probably do too. People like us are always on the hunt for something new, fresh and exciting to add to our closets.
I always wait until I’m actually going to wear something before I rip the tag off of a new article of clothing. For me, it’s part of the excitement of wearing something new. It needs to feel new in order to complete the experience of “newness.” Do I sound crazy, or are we on the same page here?? (Wait. Don’t answer that).
I’m usually pretty excited to wear anything new, so it’s unusual that I let anything sit with the tags on in the closet for too long. The only exception is when I buy something out of season, which doesn’t happen too often.
However, back in February, I bought a few spring pieces, just before my trip to Punta Cana. I ended up wearing almost everything I bought, except for one skirt. It’s not that I didn’t like the skirt, but it was almost too “nice” to wear down there, since the beach atmosphere is pretty casual.
I really don’t know why, but it was only recently that I finally decided to wear it for the first time. My friend and I were heading downtown to a client’s party, and it just felt like the right occasion. Of course, I had to wear it with those black peep toe booties that I’ve been wearing non-stop (see here and here).
The plan is to wear the skirt more often than every 5 months. I’ll let you know how that goes!
Linen Blazer – H&M (Similar) // T-shirt – Gap (Same) // Skirt – Joe Fresh (Same in Canada, Similar Elsewhere)
Clutch – Gap (Same) // Sandals – Wishbone Collection via Brown’s Shoes (Same)
Necklace – Stella & Dot (Same – both pieces included!)
Do you wait until you wear something before taking the tags off?
