Do you or don't you
i am generally open-minded about fashion, and i approach all the options with healthy curiosity (this naturally led to my need for paring down). in contrast, i know people who just instinctively have a lot of rules about what they will wear. it is interesting to note that when they rattle them off to me the rules are actually for what they will not wear. you might argue that the list is one and the same, because the space left blank in one list is the very thing that builds the content of the other (eg. “i won’t wear skirts” translates to “i will wear pants” etc.) but i see a difference in the mentality, if not the practical results.
why is it easier to commit to a list of “don’t” than it is to a list of “do”? i have a theory. i think the list of don’t is easily created from past experience, failed attempts, what we’ve learned, etc. the do list is, well, is only possible to create if you’ve reached an understanding of yourself. i’m beginning to feel like a do list is possible for me. not quite, but almost.
which is easier for you?
