Usually when I buy something, I take a picture of myself in it in the dressing room, then put it on hold and come back to it. Then I take it home and take a picture of myself in it. If I love it, the tags come off and I wear it. If I need to think more about it, I make sure to keep the receipt and leave the tags on for a while.
It’s a complicated process. I’m sure I’m making things more difficult for myself.
This week, I finally gave up on a skirt that I’ve had since August.
Anthoropologie Luminous Graphite Skirt by Sine.
I bought it full-price because I thought I loved it. And after I took these photos (in August, which is why it’s not pitch black and there are still leaves on the tree outside the window), I thought I was sold. But obviously it wasn’t meant to be. Thanks Anthro for the no time-limit returns! I saved myself the $$$ with the possibility of buying something else that I love more in the future.
Like I did with the Stemmed Sweetbriar Dress. I don’t regret returning it, and I put that money towards the Cream Confection Jacket, which I adore. I’m still wearing it; I’m not ready to break out the winter coat just yet.
Unfortunately with black, the details don’t show up too well in photos unless you have the right light, which obviously I do not. (This was taken with outfit #4.)
Or how about nothing….
