1. Asos, 2. Vans, 3. LL Bean, 4. Quay, 5. Eileen Fisher, 6. Jack Rogers
I have been non stop unpacking and I’ve realized something, I have too much crap.
Honestly, I had to stop sorting through clothes last night because I was disgusted.
Why,you ask, am I posting a wishlist? Because I have a new philosophy on shopping and clothing.
The first one being I am to never buy another sweater again in my life (the apartment is overflowing with heavy knits).
The second thing is that when I buy something I want it to be a classic, high quality piece that I can wear for a long, long time.
Take numbers 3 and 5. While they are sweaters (cringe) they are investment pieces that I can wear for years. A classic LL Bean fisherman sweater will never go out of style and Eileen Fisher clothing is of the highest quality.
I did opt to buy the Quay sunglasses I wrote about previously because I had been eyeing the style for quite some time.
I think, for now, I will hold off on buying anymore shoes. As my mom told me last week, “it is possible to have too many shoes”.
However, I do think these Vans and Jack Rodgers are staples for any wardrobe.
Screw the dress (#1).
I definitely don’t need that.
The third, and last thing, is advice given by Barbs. If I buy something new I should give away or throw away another item. This is definitely sage advice as I don’t think my apartment or BF can take one more additional item without something else leaving.
