“I love new clothes. If everyone could just wear new clothes everyday, I reckon depression wouldn’t exist anymore.”
― Sophie Kinsella, Confessions of a Shopaholic
I love getting new clothes. And I love to wear them as soon as possible. It’s like I have this compelling urge to show off the wonderful treasures resulting from my diligent searching of racks.
When I was younger I would usually wear my new items the day after getting them. In fact, on some occasions, I would even wear the new item(s) before even leaving the store they were purchased in.
Proof some things never change. The day I bought this dress — I wore it that night!

“It’s better to have fewer things of quality than too much expendable junk.”
That quote mirrors the mindset I try to have when shopping for new clothes. A few new quality pieces to contribute to the building up of my wardrobe. Pieces that can have multiple uses (e.g. can be paired with several colors, goes with work or casual attire) and pieces that are specific in use, such as tshirts, shorts, etc.
Today I’m wearing two new pieces I picked up over the weekend. Both fall primarily in the “for work” catagory, but could be used for separate occasions as well. I think the ruffle adds a extra special touch to the shirt. And these flats… I’m in love with them! So cute and comfortable. They will probably be featured in their own post.. and worn plenty.
