My closet saw several more senior members go into retirement this week. Just when I thought I had whittled it down to the bare minimum, stylish drunk friends tell you that a few ugly pieces has got to go (love that!). To be honest, I hated these things. They lingered because I actually wore them to death. I’m talking 5, 6, 10 years of regular wear. I’m talking so many cycles through the dryer that the once long sleeves are now 3/4 sleeves. I’ve evolved and outgrown these things. Also I’ve learned, I can’t do crop tops anymore. Just can’t. Too old. What a relief! Getting honest feedback about my wardrobe reaffirmed my doubts about things that were hard to let go. And when I disagreed–that automatic reaction–reaffirmed my love for certain “ugly” things. I’m guessing you have something “ugly” in your closet that only you like? And the only person you’re wearing it for is yourself. That’s OK. More than OK. That’s great!
And speaking of ugly… anyone else see Everlane’s new modern babo shoes in green? I’m trying hard to imagine these looking good, but I keep picturing elves.
