Thank you for the thoughtful comments yesterday. My favorite nugget is from Mia when she refers to “(her) imaginary life trap”, an issue I’ve wrestled with and somewhat curbed. I too have those moments of lusting for an item that just has no purpose in my life, but have learned to take a pass. I don’t have to own everything I love.
The catalyst for these posts was the realization that I shop for and buy dresses, but live in pants, and in the summer, skirts. Yes, a dress is easy, but how many times can I wear it in a week, a month, a season? Granted I can change up the accessories, add tights and a jacket, but the reality is, I don’t run-around in dresses.
So, even though the Marant top is a special and identifiable piece, I will wear it often (‘heavy rotation’) with jeans and skirts. This was a big step for me since I had the dress version of this print on my wish list since the show last fall…
