I probably spend too much money on clothes than I have to but it was only after this realization that I’ve come to answer the question of what is the perfect wardrobe for me: It should have all the basics and the classics, and should also have lovely,whimsical, one-of-a-kind pieces. It need not be a lot but it should be just enough–not too little that it will compromise my preference for being fashionable and not wearing any one piece to death. It should also be not too many since I have a finite closet space and I don’t have a trust fund to support any unbridled leaning for fashion. While I love fashion and clothes, I’ve realized lately that it cannot go uncontrolled and just because there is money to spare doesn’t mean I can buy anything I want. Before acquiring yet another new item of clothing, there should now be a deliberateness to the purchase, and a careful selection based on how the new acquisition will work with the rest of the pieces in the closet.
