What I Own
This is in response to a reader’s question-
You put alot of clothing/accessories on your blog. Do you have all that stuff(?) 🙂
What are a few of your favorite things that you don’t have, but would like?
Alas I do not own all of the pieces that are posted on this blog. I would need a bigger closet! But my closet is pretty extensive, mainly because clothes are my hobby. Some people enjoy working with clay, I work in clothes.
The clothes that I post are either clothes that I’m currently wishing I could own and/or have something similar in my closet. As you all know, I am a HUGE bargain shopper, therefore most of my clothing comes pre-owned. The new pieces that I buy typically represent a trend that I can’t live without in my wardrobe or something I know will go with many other pieces in my closet.
If I do spend “real” money on a piece of clothing, you can almost always bet that it is an accessory. And by that I mean, shoes, coats, etc. They can really complete an outfit and transform it into something trendy. (See post Accessories Addiction for pictures on how accessories can change a look.) A few of my favorite things that I don’t have but would like right now include some new pairs of practical shoes (see post To Be Or Not To Be). They are becoming a must have. I can’t wear my flats every day! And I’m always on the hunt for printed tops that I like (I’m a print snob) and will work with things I own. As far as my fantasy wish list items. This blog is not long enough. Thanks for the question!
