Nothing To Wear?

12 Jul

 

Someone I worked with recently had 23 long sleeve tees in their cupboard – but not a single pair of (decent) pants.

She had two pairs of jeans and a pair of (unflattering) three quarter length cargoes she didn’t like, but wore because she didn’t have anything else.

She felt like she had lots of clothes – but nothing to wear.

Another girl I worked with had a wardrobe full of dresses but when I asked her to show me which shoes she wore with them, she said she didn’t really have any.

She kept collecting the dresses, because she “didn’t like herself in pants” – yet every time she put the dresses on, they didn’t feel right – because the shoes she had to wear with them were dated and daggy.

She felt like she had lots of clothes – but nothing to wear.

One lady had an amazing beaded jacket she bought in a vintage sale (“it was only $50”) but had never worn it because it went with nothing in her wardrobe.

And then another had several pairs of amazing killer heels, (rarely if ever worn because her lifestyle involved going to parks, cafes and kids birthday parties) a couple of pairs of worn to death trainers and not one pair of comfy, modern stylish flats.

Both felt like they had lots of clothes – but nothing to wear.

See a pattern?  There’s big gaps in these wardrobes. That’s why these women feel like they don’t have anything to wear – despite having a lot of clothes.

They keep buying the same thing over and over and then wondering why they can’t put an outfit together.

They’re buying random things, in the hope that it will give them something to wear – but it doesn’t because they don’t have the pieces (often basics) to wear with it.

They haven’t identified what the gaps are in their wardrobe.

They’re buying things that don’t tie in with other things in their wardrobe.

They’re not building on what they already own.

What’s missing from your wardrobe?  Is it a bra or a slip you need to wear under a certain dress; is it a bag you need to complete a particular outfit or is it a great coat you’ve been meaning to buy for five years?

If you keep buying random, spur of the moment purchases, without thinking about what they go with, or whether you really need another one the same as several others in your wardrobe …..you’ll continue to feel like you have nothing to wear.
