I say that to my kids sometimes. Like, hey you didn't ask me so why do you have a foot out the door? But this post is not about children for once. It's about shopping.
I've noticed recently that whenever a friend mentions an upcoming trip or event that they need to dress for I'm always like "I've got just the thing!" And I do! Last minute wedding in Phili? Got you. Trip to Portofino? Yep got the dresses the hats and the bags. Funeral in Maine? Please wear this. I think my friends are equal parts psyched and alarmed because some of these items have never been worn by me. Why do I have the perfect outfit for a bike tour of Napa? It's kind of weird.
It has happened enough times now that I see that I buy clothes for other peoples lives. In a world of primarily cut offs, t shirts, flip flops and hoodies I ask you. Should I actually start wearing the clothes I love and look like a lunatic? Or should I stop shopping and start donating?
I have everything needed to recreate these looks. And yet I haven't changed my shorts and tee since Tuesday.
