The James Perse sale is ending soon!! Who’s placed more than one order? I stuck to just one this time, and I’m happy with that. I’m realizing lately that I bought because I COULD and because I wanted to, not because I needed anything. Sure, I could rationalize all I want that I needed this shirt or that skirt, or whatever, but with few exceptions, I didn’t.
Now, that I actually have ALL My clothes hanging in one closet, I know what I have, and what I need. I’m also really going to force myself to wear the things I love more often. Not that I really need to “force” myself, it’s more like reminding myself that I have so many things that make my “heart sing” as fshnonmymind (Angela) likes to say, that I don’t wear for one reason or another.
These two James Perse pieces are a great example. I put these pants on and think to myself “damn, I love these!!” Same with the t-shirt, although you’ll notice it’s not a typical color for me (wild rose), but it’s still rather neutral, and I think it looks wonderful with my skintone/hair color. I do wish I’d purchased a size 3 in the shirt though, so it’s just a bit looser; I think I’d wear it more.
Also, there are quite a few items in the James Perse sale that are the wild rose pigment, so you can get a look at how the color looks on me here. As I said, I love it, and you know I don’t normally love ANY color!!
