My family has long had a tradition of posing and taking pictures next to stop signs (you can tell this photo was taken in America, otherwise the sign would say 'berhenti'), I saw this one on the way to the grocery story and thought I'd add to the tradition. And yes, I was holding my glasses behind my back for these pictures. There are few accessories I hate more than my glasses.
But I honestly do not understand the appeal of outfit posts with the theme of "One pair of shoes, four ways." or "One skirt, 3 ways."
I mean, really, does anyone ever go to the store, buy a skirt, and only wear it one way for the rest of their life? Is making one article of clothing a usable part of many different outfits supposed to be a revolutionary idea? Because I was pretty sure that that was just a necessary part of getting dressed.
Imagine that you've done a load of colored laundry, but you haven't done the load of lights yet. You want to wear your freshly washed fuchsia blouse, but the white pants you wore it with last time are still in the laundry. Oh no! What to do?
Actually, that's not a dilemma. You just put on a pair of blue jeans or a skirt or something and move on with your life.
I don't understand, because I've never gone shopping and bought a pair of sandals because they could be worn with one....or maybe even two, or dare I say it, four!!!....of my outfits. No, I buy a pair of sandals because they are comfy or because I'm in love with them and then I wear them whenever I want to.
I always thought that the normal way of getting dressed is that you do have to wear the same clothes over and over again...because your closet is obviously not unlimited if you are a person of moderate income. Clearly, nobody would wear the same shirts with the same pants all the time because that's terribly boring. Plus, who could memorize all of those precise outfit combos if each piece of clothing only could be worn with one other piece of clothing in the closet.
I don't know. If I were to write a post like that, it would be more like:
"One pair of cowboy boots, 25,031 outfits."
"One pair of fuchsia tights, 186 outfits."
"Superman t-shirt, 38 outfits."
When it comes to clothes, all I say is: Wear them. Wear them all.
What do you think?
