These are all great dresses, no doubt about it. The question is: will I ever wear them? I spent the entire spring and summer thrifting wonderful clothes, but I have not really gotten the chance to wear them much at all. After all, there are only so many clothes one can wear per each day. Would it be wrong of me to just want to own these dresses, even if I know that I might not wear them? Surely I should tell Minni's sister to take them to the flea market, as I am convinced there are a lot of people out there who would get more wear out of these wonderful items than myself.
Take this Vuokko dress above, or the Marimekko one below. These are fabulous dresses, right? But would I really wear the orange stripes as boldly as they deserve to be worn? And could I pull off the granny-chic look in the purple dress without looking as if I have escaped from another decade?
Or what about this one then? Where could I really wear this?
This is what I wore today, and looking at the outfit I chose for myself this morning, and comparing it to the photos above, I wonder again: How do we choose our styles? Do we choose them at all, or do we just drift into wearing certain pieces more than others?
