Moving on, since I am FAR from photogenic, I thought I'd address something I was struck by in my last post...Namely, the question of value. For instance, the Helmut Lang dress I'm wearing in my last post, and also here, was, until I caved in and bought the Emerson Made bluebells, the most expensive item of clothing in my wardrobe. And is still one of the most valued; most of the time I value it so much I am hesitant to wear it (I know, I know, that's just SILLY.). Whereas, since buying those jeans, I've worn them, oh, about a bajillion times. There are other items in my wardrobe I get just as much wear and pleasure out of, that cost much, much less. But I must admit that I tend to favor items in which I have invested a chunk of change.
The question then becomes; Do I value these items so highly because of their high price tag, or because they are so integral to my aesthetic that I was able to justify paying the high price to have them in my wardrobe?
Poof. That makes my poor little shrunken head hurt. How about you? What items in your wardrobe do you value most?
And, just so this post isn't a total exercise in futility, here's a really rad picture of a hairless cat in a shark sweater.
You are welcome. I bet hairless cats are one of the only animals that have to think about clothing as much as we do. And.....clearly, it is now time for my feeble brain to sleep. Sweet non-creepy hairless cat shark dreams to you all.
