We all try each season to add must have pieces to our wardrobe. We tell our selves we are filling in the gaps with clothing we really need. Every time I go shopping I find myself repeating this ridiculous mantra-“I will have and love this forever.” I said it when I bought those ridiculously uncomfortable Givenchy flats (worn once), or when I purchased that Zara camouflage sweater (it itches and doesn’t fit right.)
The truth is I probably will not love most of my things until the end of time. First, I love clothes and keep buying. Second, clothing trends change over time and pieces inevitably feel dated. We all have a handbag we told ourselves we had to have, that we would use forever, and then that initial lust starts to fade. We see a new bag and think if I had that one, I wouldn’t want any other bags….
The media bombards us with images of new beautiful things, and I for one can not resist. So here is what I am lusting after at the moment. But this fall I am not going to lie to myself and say those cat flats are going to grow old with me. I will wear them for a few years, and like all my shoes, I will wear them out.
*How cute are those Charlotte Olympia flats! I am thinking jeans, grey sweater, cat flats, Mulberry Bag. My idea of the current perfect travel outfit
