You might not know this about me but I really don’t enjoy clothes shopping, unless of course, I am shopping for Noelle. I love shopping for her. When I do find something that I truly love, which is rare, I tend to stock up. So when I found the shirt in the above photo I did just that. I purchased 2 of them cause that’s all they had. Trust me when I tell you if they had had 10, I would have bought them all. I cannot tell you how many times when I didn’t stock up that I was unable to find whatever said desired item was when I decided it was time to go looking for it. Sighs… story of my life. So now I always stock up. Most of the time this works out quite well for me. I do it in other areas of shopping as well. Clothing trends change and often what is in fashion may not look good on certain body types… ie mine. This makes it doubly important to stock up when I find what I like and what looks good. Example below of a shirt I did purchase 8 or 10 of.
Time and wear erases everything eventually. Such is life. My favorite green shirts were getting see-through spots in certain areas and HOLES! As a friend of mine would say.. the rudeness!!!
Yesterday I held my favorite green shirts close as I said my last goodbyes then unceremoniously tossed them into the waste bucket. Nothing to do now but move on and find the next set of fabulous shirts.
What about you? Do you get attached and sentimental about any of your clothing? Do you have trouble finding must have items that fit perfectly?
