How often do you consider your wardrobe as a whole? I’ve been reading more fashion blogs and thinking more about my wardrobe as a functioning entity as of late. My wardrobe is pretty enormous, lets be honest. But I must now acknowledge that there are some huge gaping holes. Probably because I have never planned my wardrobe in any way shape or form. I just saw something I liked and usually bought it whether I needed it or not (I can convince myself I will wear almost anything eventually).
Maybe it’s the fact that I’m getting older (and I have so many clothes that I don’t wear them often enough for anything to really wear out, whereas D is very very hard on clothing and nothing really lasts more than a couple of years) and I need to think – am I really going to want to wear what I’m buying right now in 5 or 10 years? As a fashionista this is a bit of a *gasp* moment – how could I possibly be caught dead in something I’m wearing now 5 years from now? I mean, isn’t fashion all about change and whats new?
Honestly, lets try and be practical here.
I’m on the verge of starting a job for the first time in nearly 7 years and the thought of having an income is very exciting. This last year I have really reigned in the shopping (literally this weekend I had some time to kill, so I went into Witchery and found clearance scarves for $6.90 and $12.90 respectively, plus an additional 25% off… and didn’t buy a single one because the colours didn’t really suit (even though they were plain and I’ve decided I need more plain scarves!!).
So here is my wish list to help build my wardrobe once I start earning a salary (and yes, I do have expensive taste):
Did I miss anything? What are some of the items currently on your wish list? What is your wardrobe seriously lacking?
