i don't even know the source of this little bit of "advice", but i keep hearing it time and again: before buying a piece of clothing, you should ensure that it can be worn with at least three pieces of clothing already in your closet. i am not sure why, today, i decided to challenge this "advice", but i did. why can't the outfit that i wore today be the only outfit in which the top, dress and cardi figure? i hate to keep harping on about the time when i was in uni, but, back in those days, i had a total of twelve pieces of clothing that made six outfits, meaning that some of those pieces of clothing only appeared in one outfit. i don't ever recall feeling anything but satisfied with how i was dressing. so, henceforth, i am ridding my mind of the notion that i have to be able to put every single piece of clothing that i own into at least three different outfits.
