Seriously. I graduated from school a few years ago and bought this whole wardrobe of clothes for work. And I'm still wearing the majority of this wardrobe more than three years later. I swear everything I own has holes, is ripped or faded (or doesn't fit but that's another issue).
Don't get me wrong, I buy some nice things now and then - sweater from anthro? Tore a hole in the sleeve the other day. Jeans from banana? Ripped once -repaired them -spilled bleach on them...and then ripped them again. I bought this great gray sweatshirt - tucked it into the corner of my closet so I would only wear it on special cozy sweatshirt occasions ... and the air conditioner dripped on it and left an awesome stain. New black boots? Wore them in the snow/salt the day after I bought them and ate huge holes in the leather.
The soles of my favorite flats are falling off. I honestly have to look rather ragamuffin walking into the office everyday - especially considering I wear like the same four outfits over and over.
I need to shop. For inexpensive things that I wont be bummed about when I ruin - because I will. Also, I should lose a few pounds - and that would at least throw a few pairs of faded pants back in the rotation right?
Frustrating. I'm making a shopping list.
