besides buying exactly what i want, i have to remember to wear exactly what i have. there are a number of items waiting semi-patiently in my drawers and in my closet. you can tell they've sort of given up on me. when that crack of light shines through as i come in for a peek, they don't perk up. they know they won't even be considered. so why haven't i give up on them yet? should they stay or should they go?
these are items, mind you, that i adore (see pic. of burberry plaid wool pants - no, that is not me), but do not wear. i often go with a second-tier item in order to save the preferred item for some mythical other time. perhaps if i got rid of the substitutes, i would get down to wearing the great items. one thing that stops me is that great items, for me, are usually real stand outs. i have to get over the concern that i might wear a very memorable pair of pants twice in one week.
game plan - separate items that thrill me from items that are security blanket stand-ins.
do you wear your favorite clothes?
