Dress: eBay (Anthropologie) — Blazer: Goodwill — Flats: American Rag — Earrings: Gift from Katie! — Necklace: NoMoreRack — Ring: Gift
I’m not sure about this blazer. I picked it up on a thrifting venture while Tia was in town, but I’m just…not sure about it.
I like the yellow (which is more saturated IRL than in the pictures here) and I like the idea of it…but maybe it’s just that the reality doesn’t quite match up to the idea. It’s kind of wrinkly even when I iron it, and it just doesn’t feel like the quality is that great.
Maybe the problem is wearing it with this dress–I love the purples of the top half so much, and it’s a shame to cover that up.
I’ll probably hang onto it a little longer and give it another shot, but these days I have less patience for clothing that I’m on the fence about–one or two tries and if I’m not super into it, out it goes. That unsure feeling in my clothing makes me less confident, and that can color my whole day with insecurity, which is not something I enjoy so much.
How much time do you give clothing that you feel eh about? Do you put up with it because the love comes in time? Do you chuck it ASAP? Do you only buy what you really, truly love in the first place?
