Life is too short....

I've read several posts in the past that talk about the fact we tend to keep items of clothing for "best" and that indeed life is too short for such nonsense. This is something I have to remind myself of, as I am guilty of keeping clothing for best, but the fact of the matter is, I don't actually go out enough, or to special occasions to warrant this.

A prime example of this is this ASOS play suit that has been hung in my wardrobe for a year now, I've even packed it in suitcases when I've been away and still never worn it. It's sat in my wardrobe with the labels on. But no more! I will wear my pretty clothes every day!

Weird pantomime Peter Pan stance aside, I love this playsuit, I remember Rosie wearing hers at Plus London and thinking, "ooh I must remember to wear mine" but did I heck!

I wore a cosy cardi for warmth and comfort, and I'll definitely be wearing this again, no more will items languish in the back of my wardrobe!

Do you keep things for "best" or do you wear all of your wardrobe all of the time?

  1. I do this too, but they end up never being worn so I need to stop and just wear them too :)

  2. i have this playsuit i love it ! i am guilty of saving something for best only to get it out and it not fit or it to have gone down in price by the time I've actually worn mine! its really annoying when that happens so i have started to wear things as i buy them but i do still save somethings for 'special occasions' xx

  3. Love that playsuit. The print is lovely. Asos makes such amazing playsuits.

    I am terrible for this kind of behaviour. I think its a family habit that I'm trying to break. I have some gorgeous dresses, skirts and playsuits that I've never worn. I do try to dress up even if I'm not going anywhere special more than I used to, but not nearly enough.

  4. Yep I'm guilty of this. I have a couple of special dresses that I bought about 3 yrs ago as I fell in love with them , never worn either of them and now I have the perfect occasion to wear one but can't as they are too long to look fashionable so need to find someone to shorten them for me :(

  5. I've been working on changing that kind of thinking as well.

    There's another hole we girls tend to fall into often. Wearing drag clothes on days when we don't feel good about ourselves or our bodies. I'm trying to turn that around as well.

  7. i do the same, and just bought a black lace dress. If I left it for going out events only, it would never get worn! Trying to learn how to dress down items so they get worn!

  9. Yes I guilty of it, partly I don't really 'socialize' and partly I'm just plain lazy. Loving the playsuit. <3

  10. I used to do same thing but I dont save clothes any more
    I dont wait until I lose weight to buy something I really want.
    I figure If I lose weight it wont be a ton and if need be I'll have it altered. I invest in my wardrobe and by golly I am gonna wear it all :P
    Now only think that keeps me from wearing some of my cloths is my utter disgust with having to press them :)
