I've forgotten how fun playing Polyvore was. So I reopen my account and create my virtual wardrobe. And now, when I limit my possessions, it's even more fun! Why? Because you're focused. You know what you're doing. You're integrated with your persona list--not living a consumptive dream. Just like when I started over my fashion-istic journal in the beginning of this year.
I used to be a dress junkie. With so many reasons: wedding receptions, churching, concerts, hangouts, etc. In fact, 80% of my dresses are generally useless. I wear some of them only once or twice and forget their existence immediately. Because, how would you teach energetic kids with a lace dress, or how will you take a walk around the city with high pollution wearing pretty mini dress with ribbon on the waistback? It's...a dream. And sadly, most of my dresses are never, never been appropriate for those casual activities. Furthermore when it's sleeveless...since I become shy with that sleeveless stuff, can't wear 'em spontaneously without considering my hairy underarm situation. Or should I layer it with a cardigan eventhough it's sunny and hot outside? :p
That's why I've sold 3 of my little black dress (which is a-must-have, according to fashion experts and magazines, meh), my high-heels shoes, and all inappropriate things that usually stay deep down in the drawer without any human touch.
Anyway, this is my previous concert pieces expectation:
|lesson learned : the shoes might be fine, but those dress' details on the neckline will make it hard to put on my viola on the shoulder. and sleeveless : need armpit hair clearance and it takes time...and effort.|
Well, folks, how do you manage your formal attires?
Will you sacrifice your comfort only to impress or to make sure you look good?
