Well...let's just say that's my biggest problem when it came to shopping.
I like to buy pieces that I like, but never really have an idea of how I could go about wearing it/putting outfits together. SO I decided I really needed to consider whether or not that piece is essential to my wardrobe.
Don't get me wrong..I started having a litttleee big more self-control and don't buy something just b/c it's pretty anymore...
BUT sometimes I just MIGHT see the item on the rack - GRAB it in my size - HAUL it around the store - get on line for the register - and FINALLY bring myself back to reality and realize I NEED to put the item downha :)
Anywhooo, this brings me to the title of my post. I was kind of surprised when I realized how long I've had some of these items in this OOTD post. I think I wore this jacket ONCE in the last prob 5 yrs that I've had it.
It's amazing how many pieces you keep in your closet and don't wear for years and then all of a sudden..BAM..it's back in your outfit wearing life!
