Admittedly, I don't know what I would do without the proper ability to mix and match e v e r y t h i n g I own. Or, without the understanding that it's perfectly 'OK' to wear the same thing on repeat. What foolishness to think you should only wear something once. One: it's wasteful. Two: it's wasteful.
I take this 'moins est plus'
My wardrobe, my relationships, my belongings both tangible and intrinsic. Wouldn't you rather have one gem, one thing you can really love or live in, than a ton of rubbish to carry around? I don't know, maybe it's harder in life to learn how to simplify, but that's probably the point.
In college, when becoming goth inundated my soul, I wore the same vintage Harley tee, black fur coat, leather pants, and thigh-high combat boots, every single day. Quite truthfully, the entire experience of my Sophomore to Junior years of college could be summarized to the belief that wearing what you want is the highest form of self expression, and contrary to whatever fashion rules you abide by, it's totally PC to rock out in the same thing - all back, all the time - if you really feel it. Those were the days for me. Running around NYC with all the dreams, all the hopes, in my all black ensembles.
Maybe nailing down a daily uniform
I felt like my best self in,
was just about the best decision I made at that age.
What I wouldn't give to tell myself a few things at 21.
A story to share at a later time. . .
