Discovering the sheer amount of stuff I have has really deterred me from doing a good deal of shopping (NOTE: I almost typed "shooping"-- completely different). This has been good for my wallet and my sanity. I've hardly bought any clothes this summer, because, honestly, there is some point at which you run out of hangers and spaces to store your stillettos and something has to give. Getting rid of clothing is hard. Not buying clothing-- depending on who you are-- is hard. Sometimes, though, for your own good, you must cut yourself off.
Ideally, I would like to take a day to seriously look at and try on everything I own and thin the herd significantly. Like I said, I'm like most people in that I have relatively few specific articles of clothing I actually wear out of the clothing I actually own (especially in the summer where I don't bother to get out of my nightclothes at least four days a week when I only leave the house for work noIamnotlazythankyouforasking). I would like to say that this is what I will do and then, and ONLY then, will I proceed to buy new stuff. Stuff I love. Stuff that will make choosing outfits excruciatingly difficult due to the fact that I want to wear everything at once every day. That would be the perfect wardrobe: one where you don't know what to wear because you love everything so much.
However, this little speech leads but to one statement.
okay so these have multiple straps and are freakin' yellow. yellow! everyone needs a pair of yellow shoes, right?
it's probably completely weird of me, but these make me think of A of academichic and her oft worn grey wedges, which alone is enough to want these really badly. plus, i don't have a lot of "practical" heels.
We'll see how "being reasonable" goes.
