I was hunting around for a new outfit to wear to a conference and I automatically reached out for a snappy black jacket with white polka dots. A little voice in my head said, “But—”
I shushed that little voice and tried in on. The voice said a bit louder, “But—!!!”
I really liked the jacket. It fit perfectly. The color combo and the shape liked me back. And the price was right.
That voice again. “But you already own a jacket that looks a lot like that! And a sweater.
Luckily I listened to the voice. This time.
I have a bad habit of buying the same thing over and over, because it worked the first time. That explains all those black tops and pants in my closet. ( I’ll spare you an all-black photo.)
But in addition to the black, a pattern was emerging and it was polka dots, mostly black (ahem) and white. I have them in skirts, pants, housecoats and scarves . What’s with that?
It's like an addiction and I can't just walk away. Please don't suggest stripes. There's a small problem with them too.
What about you? Do you buy the same color or style over and over? Or are you crazy about a certain pattern? I want to hear about your addictions - to clothes. Candy was yesterday, my darlings.
