What a week. Tim moved house. I moved home. Not to mention the crazy storms every afternoon and difficulties in making it back from work while still staying dry. I’ve had my share of drowned rat feelings for a while now.
Moving home has made me consider all the things I survived without – the extra pieces of clothing I never really wore, but kept ‘just in case’, the plethora of books (although I still love them, maybe I could start my own library one day anyway), mountains of bags, and all those body and skin care products I have accumulated over years of birthdays. It is time to cull. Finally. And I can’t wait.
It’s re-iterating my view of only purchasing second-hand, or items that offer longevity – classic designer pieces and the like. That’s not to say I don’t want to have a little fun with my fashion purchases anymore.
A Stella McCartney coin purse or mini bag is high on my current list. Although it’s not a ‘classic’ style, more based purely on current trends and all that pop culture, I could / would still use it forever. Firstly, it’s Stella, so it’s going to last. Secondly, it makes any future outfit more exciting and colourful. (I’ll also have so much more bag and wardrobe room soon). Point proven, these little guys are winners.
