THE LIST OF CLOTHING ITEMS that I own, but rarely wear is actually a lot longer than I would like to admit. If I were to admit that then my “I don’t have what to wear” argument would additionally lose value. Perhaps it’s the need to be constantly innovative and creative or perhaps it’s the consumerist within us, but I feel this mindset mainly stems from our need to experience something new before moving on to something newer. Our need to modify the repetitive nature of life can manifest in different ways, and from a stereotypical and unnecessarily generalized point of view, women women do it mainly through buying clothes.

Although I can’t detach myself compeltely from that stereotype, I still practice versatility and quality before quantity. I also have a rule not to buy something just because it was on sale or just because it’s “in”.

Enter almost 8-year-old knit dress that I bought in high school together with my quality inspector {aka mom}. I can’t say that I have worn it a lot, but you all know how hard it is to find knits that don’t lint after few wears. Now that I think about it, I always wear this dress to home or restaurant parties, or simply places where I arrive with a car and my contact with the winter cold is limited to a brief run from the car to the facility. Therefore, barging into your photographer’s home and stating “I like your kitchen, let’s shoot it here!” does make sense. And the good thing about having quality clothes that you rarely wear is that they feel new every season.

Can you relate?
