I’ve been on a scavenger hunt again. Or, using the more Fashion PC term: shopping my closet. And this is the result. I’m not sure what to think of it.
As you know, I’ve been purging my closets of all sorts of crap (= anything I don’t need or want anymore). And as part of this decluttering frenzy, I’ve also cleared my wardrobe. However, after donating or recycling about 1/3 of my clothes, I’m still not happy with my existing wardrobe.
I’m not talking about planning to go on a shopping spree. My objective was never to stop buying clothes but to only buy clothes that I love. Or need. Preferably both.
I mean that I still have a lot of clothes that I find somewhat useful even though they don’t exactly (to borrow Marie Kondo’s term) spark joy.
These trousers are a case in point.
I either hate them or sort-of-like them, depending on my mood. And that’s why I wanted to put together an outfit around them: to see if I could make up my mind.
So, the verdict, do the trousers work or not?
No idea. I really can’t make up my mind.
I think the trousers might look nice with my long burgundy cashmere cardigan. Perhaps I’ll revisit this idea in autumn.
On the other hand, this is probably not the most flattering colour in trousers. I mean, my thighs are (and always have been, and always will be) the widest part of my body. Do I really want to emphasise that? On the other hand, I’m a realist: I know that there’s no colour that will make my legs look long and slim. So, maybe I should be asking myself whether I feel comfortable in these trousers instead.
Well… yes and no. Or, it sort of depends on my mood…
I guess the trousers will be staying in my wardrobe. For now.
top: Esprit (old) / trousers: Noom (old) / bag: Marc Jacobs /
shoes: Jenny (old) / sunglasses: Prada (old)
What do you do with clothes that you sort-of-like?
PS: I will be taking a few days off as I’m celebrating my birthday in a secret location…
OK, maybe you guessed it. Anyway, there won’t be a new post until next weekend.
