Those of you who decided to transform your wardrobe, what was the original aim behind that? Was it because you were fed up with having nothing to wear? Did you become fascinated with minimalist living? Did you want to focus more on quality? Anything else?
My main goal was to create such a wardrobe that I would never think too much in the morning what to wear again. It would consist of such clothes that would express who I am (a grown-up who cares about her appearance) and would fit my daily needs (work, studies, friends, a lot of walking in the city, etc.), while being the best choice I could afford on the market regarding quality. I didn’t strive for as little things as possible but because I move often, I didn’t want a huge wardrobe either. So there was an idea of having as little as my needs allow me to. I believed that the energy and time I would put today in making the perfect wardrobe would pay off later when I will no longer spend more than 3 minutes thinking about what to wear.
I don’t spend any less time thinking about clothes (in terms of what to wear), even when my wardrobe would suffice now to live through every season comfortably and consists of very nice, quality pieces. Right the opposite – I’m thinking about them more. It became a kind of a hobby. Of course, writing this blog and reading about how is everybody doing is a pleasure but a one that doesn’t require so much time. What bothers me the most is investing way too much time into planning what to wear the next day to look like this or that, browsing Pinterest endlessly, thinking of what to buy next, examining my closet every day, etc.
Does it relate with my pursuit of “the perfect wardrobe”and “perfect look” that is unreal in its basics because perfection doesn’t exist?
Is it because I value people’s opinion on what I’m wearing more than I admit?
Or is it because I’m generally an overthinker of everything?
Did you also find yourself far away from your original goal when reinventing wardrobe? Did you return back to when you started or tried to go for another way?
