I mentioned before that I’ve been having a lot of trouble with my personal style, or rather, I don’t feel a connection to many of the clothes I own. I love pretty well everything I own, I do, but there are a ton of pieces that just don’t get much wear anymore. So, I’ve been making an effort to be a bit more thoughtful about what I do want to wear, acknowledging the pieces that have been getting the most wear and why that is. I think with each season my wants and needs for clothes change. Winter (and I guess Fall), it seems comfort, warmth and ease become far more important to me, or at least, that has been the case this Winter. As for the warmer months, I guess I am not certain yet, although I hear Summery co-ords calling my name. I don’t necessarily think I want a complete style overhaul…ya’ll know I will always love vintage and the ever adorable style of the 60s, but in a way I feel my direction steering more towards the ease of the 70s and wearings pants/trousers far more often. I really don’t think you will see much change around here, however I am starting to go through my closet and pick the pieces I am saying goodbye to (and will be selling here and here) and keeping an eye out for the pieces I would like in my closet. It’s tough for me (a true 1st world problem), having a closet filled with mostly vintage, it feels incredibly painful to part ways with any one of them. Vintage is special, far more special than something you picked up at F21 or H&M (imho), it’s so much harder to let go of. I like keeping vintage pieces – even if I don’t wear them – just to have them as a sort-of relic, like a collection of things (albeit much more overbearing than say a rock collection) I may one day pass down to children and grandchildren (no, I’m not pregnant). Anyhow, my fear of letting go of things is obviously a whole other problem in and of itself, so we won’t go there today…these are the things I have been eyeing (some super expensive…these are just examples, not necessarily the exact pieces I would buy), do not own anything like them and would very much like in my closet. 1. H&M Dungarees….2. Valentino Turtleneck….3. Vivetta Blazer & Skirt….4. Vivetta Iride Shirt….5. River Island Jeans….6. Ferragamo Flats….7. Leather Coach Backpack….8. ACNE Chelsea Boots….9. ASOS Plaid Co-ord
