from the wardrobetales rundholz repository (no. 20 01 24 18)
i purchase a piece of clothing, certain footwear or a particular accessory online for one of two reasons. first, because i just love it. second, because i need to fill a gap* in my current stock (of clothing, footwear or accessories). if i buy something for the first reason -- because i love it -- i rarely experience disappointment. if i buy something for the second reason, disappointment does sometimes ensue: i thought the thing would complete an outfit, but, when it arrives at my house, it doesn't, usually because i couldn't get a good sense of the thing's dimensions and measurements from the photos online and, when i put the thing on, the proportions are all wrong. when this happens, more often than not, i will throw the thing into my stock (of clothing, footwear or accessories) and wait to see what happens. more often than not, the thing ends up serving a purpose other than the one i envisioned for it before i got it. and everyone (and every thing) lives happily ever after. of course, i could resolve to never buy anything online just to fill a gap. i could resolve to only buy things online that i love (regardless of whether i also envision them filling a gap). but, realistically, i know i could never keep such a resolution. besides, as i said, things usually work out quite well in the end.
*perhaps i should say "perceived gap", because, while i may see a gap, i think i would have to admit that it may only be me who sees it. any gap is very much a subjective, not an objective, phenomenon.
i am wearing rundholz mainline a/w 2017 (pullover, boots and ring), rundholz dip a/w 2017 (top/jacket and skirt) and rundholz dip s/s 2017 (trousers).
