lose or keep?

what is it with me buying things I regret buying when I get home? where's cognitive thinking and keeping cool, where's simplicity and when the hell did spontaneity replace rationality?

I have solemnly promised myself to stop buying clothes and accessories and shoes until I seriously figure out what I want and need to buy. maybe it's just that I don't find what I look for and therefore end up buying things I'm not happy with.

before being able to quit buying things I'm not too sure about I have to:
a) raid my closet and throw out everything I haven't worn in the past year
b) decide what to do with the grey sweater dress above. I actually love the piece because it is pretty unusual, but it doesn't suit me as well as it could. the dress is 100% cotton though so no acrylics or any ugly polyester fibers which go static the moment you walk out on a winter morning, so I'm guessing this may actually stay in shape for long.
what do you think?


  1. I´d say: KEEP IT!

    That´s such a pretty piece of clothing !

  2. Another vote for keep it!

  3. Ria, oh I decided to give the dress another chance and took it out on the weekend, it's marvelous and makes me feel superb! I took the tags off so now it's mine:-)

    indie, I did keep it, the best decision ever.
