And The Maxi Skirts
I’ve been holding back these pictures for a while now as I am a bit embarrasses to show the amount of skirts that I currently own. At 50+ it is quite a lesson in excess for me. Granted when I look through these items closely many were thrifted, swapped or bought online at reduced prices. But do I really need this many skirts?
I can recall when it started getting out of hand and it was with the start of this blog. Anyone who has read Style Symmetry since the beginning may remember how often I used to (gasp) wear pants. After a month or so of blogging the shift started with a combination of seeing how pants don’t photograph very well, the conscious realization that I experienced better moods when in a skirt or a dress and the fact that I was now living in Vancouver where the weather is much more friendly to my bare or barely covered legs.
So very quickly I was drifting further and further away from pants to skirts and dresses. Then over time, wanting to experiment more with my outfits I drifted further away from dresses as well (double gasp) as skirts provide more versatility options for styling with different blouses and tops. Yes I still wear pants and dresses but skirts, especially a-lines and full skirts are my first choice.
When is it enough?
What do you own the most of clothing, collectible or otherwise?
How many pieces of it do you have?
And more importantly, does it embarrass you?
