fashion favorites

Today’s video is a different one for me. I thought it would be good to have one video in which I talk about things like my height, sizing, how I shop for clothes and how I define my style. To round off the video I list 10 items that I have firm favorites for and that I nearly always shop from the same stores. Because I think that can give you a good idea of what I go for and how I build up my wardrobe

    I have a problem with clothes in that I have tons of “nice” stuff, but ultimately, I only ever end up wearing sweats! I have vintage that I take photos in and and put online, but I never have anywhere to actually wear it to. This was even before the pandemic. Should I stick to only buying comfortable basics, I wonder? I have no business buying any more good clothes vintage or non if I never wear them. I have mounds of clothes that just sit there as it is. I buy sweats and basics at Target and I like the undershirts from Lands End when they go on sale. Those are what actually gets worn.

      I still wear lots of my clothing. Not so much in the previous year, but on days where I have gone into work I’ve been having lots of fun. It’s like I have a fully new wardrobe. Maybe once you move? Perhaps New England has a strong vintage scene that you can join to wear some of those lovely pieces out?
