once in a while, i get dressed and everything clicks. i think i look good, i feel good, it’s all good. i haven’t quite figured out the formula for these small successes (though i’m trying to because i’m aiming for a wardrobe of them) – quite often this winning outfit incorporates a new item, so i’m suspicious that my judgment is clouded by my infatuation with the newest addition. but regardless, when i feel really really great in an outfit, it throws a cloud over nearly everything else in my closet. and naturally i want to feel that great every day.
why do i bother with anything else when x makes me feeling like a million bucks. i know many closets are filled with enough filler items to sufficiently postpone a repeat for over a week at least, but if i’ve found the outfit that does it all, why stray? hypothetically, if i laundered the items each day, what’s the harm in repeating? okay, that’s extreme. it’s my impulse, but i’ll grant it’s an extreme one. how about a more civilized compromise?
do you have a rule at what frequency you’re willing to repeat?
