Well I don't subscribe to any of that when it comes to me and my fashionable acquisitions.
The deep dark recesses of my closet and dresser hides many things. Most of them will get rotated through my outfits every few weeks. Some fave items I snag at weekly. Some items I adore so much that I am afraid to wear them a lot. And then there are the pieces that rarely every get out.
You know the ones. They were items that were going to "complete" your wardrobe when you fawned over them in-store or online and you swore it would go with absolutely everything and be The red skirt / blue pumps / animal print blouse that was going to end all red skirts / blue pumps / animal print blouses.
And you hem and haw over how "practical" the item(s) was going to be or wonder if you need another item in the same material and color as the six you already have, maybe sit on your hands until something hits sale. Maybe not. Maybe you needed it immediately.
Then you bring it home, try it in, ooh and ahh appreciatively at it, then put it neatly into your closet. And six weeks / four months / two seasons later, there it still sits, perhaps with the tags still on them.
Welcome to the drab dark world of my J.Crew thandie blazer, my Sam Edelman adena loafers, my Anthropologie castle lake dress. I could go on and on but I'm afraid I'd just embarass myself.
