Like so many others, I’m shopping my closet these days
It’s not because I’m thrifty (I wish… ) or picky (yes, definitely) but because I’m sorting through my possessions and decluttering like a KonMari addict on steroids…
The way I see it, the less stuff (including clothes) I have to take to the new flat, the better. So, I’m trying to postpone new season shopping (for the most part) till after the move.
Anyway… I came across this Zara trench (yes, I know, it’s fast fashion, I have sinned…) that I’ve had for… well, forever, it seems. It’s definitely something I could part with: the quality is not very good, it’s not particularly warm, and it’s certainly not windproof or waterproof. Honestly, a good windbreaker with a hood would be a far more practical piece in my neck of the woods…
But I’m not getting rid of the trench. Not yet, anyway.
Why, you might ask… Well, I may not like the quality of the coat, but I love the colour. This is the perfect ‘neutral’ (or ‘fake neutral’) colour for me: it goes with anything, and it’s more flattering to my natural colouring than most neutrals.
So, I’m keeping the trench, for now. Until I can find a replacement.
And, when I talk about replacing items in my wardrobe, I actually mean upgrading my wardrobe, little by little: less fast fashion, more good quality clothes. It’s a slow process, but I think it’s worth it.
