Meet new friends and keep the old. One is silver, and the other is gold.
After seeing the same clothes over and over again for about a month and a half now, it seems like I've uncovered a treasure hoard of "friends." Let me explicate.
In my closet, I have my staples, my favorite items, and those that I wear multiple times. Those garments/accessories are my OLD FRIENDS, my GOLD FRIENDS. I can rely on them through thick and thin. I know them really well and can wear them appropriately.
Then, there are those whom I consider my FRENEMIES. You know, those clothes that you really don't like that much, but maybe, just MAYBE, you'll need someday. This black and pink top is one of my Frenemies. I don't even remember when or for how much I got this top for. All I remember was that I would probably need something like that one day.
Well, that one day hasn't come yet. So, I tried it on today to see if I could use it for everyday wear. It looked comfy enough. Though the fabric is breathable, the length of the garment is really weird, and sits an inch too high for my tastes. The sleeves pinch just a tad, but enough to make me feel really uncomfortable wearing it for long periods of time (as I type, I am in my comfy Batman tee).
So, it's time to dump the sucker.
The moral of this blogpost is: "Throw your Frenemies away"
Once in a while, I'll come across a garment that I won't remember wearing or purchasing. So, I make a little time for it and try it on. Those are my ACQUAINTANCES. If they pass the Frenemy Test, then they become my SILVER friends. This skirt is an example of my current, favorite acquaintance. It's super comfy and extra swishy!
