Forget Hamlet, this is the important question! Especially when you’ve been doing a bit of sale shopping, you’ve gone overboard (as it usually happens) and at the end of the day you really have to decide what is worth keeping. Cautionary tale to follow, before I forget: when doing your sale shopping try to steer clear from the ‘New Collection’ area, because lovelies IT WILL HAPPEN… something you weren’t planning on, I guarantuee, will fall into your shopping bag. Oh, how do I know this? Exhibit A: these lovely Miu Miu inspired ballerinas (100 percent leather I must say) which trust me were full price. Anyway back to the debate of the day… or really my own mental argument, which I don’t know really how it works. Does my mind argue with itself (do I have more than one person up there… the little angel vs. the little shopper devil) or is it my mind vs. my heart, or more likely my purse plus the idea that later on I will want to spend on another seasonal piece and there will be no money for it. Sorry! Rambling again!!! Into the ‘keeping issue’ once more. So, you’re back home, admiring the spoils of the day when it suddenly daunts on you a decision has to be made. You cannot have it all (at least that is what I say to myself lately). You might have to be totally honest at this point even if you love a certain piece, how many times are you going to wear it? How many outfits can you create with it? Exactly! This is what happened to me with this gorgeous lamé shirt. (The ballerinas I kept… pleaseeeee)!!! All in all, I had bought a couple of dresses which I love because they are the kind you can wear over any t-shirt or shirt, even jeans when it gets chillier so they where definitely keepers, the comfy not-on-sale shoes, and the fabulous, disco dancing, that 70’s show inspired, golden shirt. Well, as I am writing this I must inform you I already made a decision, the latter item has to go back. As beautiful as it is, its gorgeousness outbalances its utility, and it just makes no sense. Gotta keep it smart people, gotta keep it smart! (Even more so when there is a fur coat coming on later I must get my hands on…. but shhhhhhh…. don’t tell a soul)!!!!
