Perfect Piece of Clothing Syndrome

Picture this: You go shopping and are on the hunt for a classic black dress. You look everywhere until you find this gorgeous piece you love and decide to take home. You’re so excited you have at least ten different outfits or ten different occasions planned in your head. Heck, you can already declare it “perfect little black dress”. Familiar?

Why is it, that we are so obsessed with searching for perfection? “Something that will go with everything in every situation” is a common description we all give whilst shopping. Something basic, but not boring. Something diverse, but conform enough for various stylings. We have all these criteria, but in the end, I don’t see how one piece of clothing would cover all the aspects. Let’s go further, does a “perfect ___” (piece of clothing insert here) even exists?
I don’t think fashion would be where it is today, if such garments would exist. Also, our closets would’ve been ten times smaller if we’d only had few of those “perfect” pieces. Just as people, no clothes are perfect as well.

If we look into my closet, you’ll find a dozen of perfect pieces. Black dress that goes great solo or with leggings, but not with bulk sweater or jeans jacket. Ripped jeans that look great when cuffed with low sneakers and longer top, but not with ankle boots or short shirt… If paired right, all before mentioned will look superb, but does that make them overall perfect?

I keep reading posts full of excitement about finding perfect this and perfect that, going perfectly with everything else in their closet. Fast-forward two months, that “perfection” is already on sale on their Depop account… But that’s a story for another time.

I guess what I’m trying to comprehend here is the level of enthusiasm we show when finding something we like. The truth is, a timeless, perfect black dress for every occasion doesn’t exist, and we all know it. It’s a way of justifying our shopping drive. When finding something we like and want to buy we have to justify it first. Usually with remarks of how perfectly subjected garment fits our existed wardrobe. How good it suits me? How many different outfits can I pull off with it? Will it be in fashion for a long time? Will I get a lot of wear out of it? It’s almost like a test, collecting points until you reach that cha-ching limit, when all that’s left is a trip to the cashier.

Although I wouldn’t call this finding a perfect piece per se. More of a good shopping day… Even so, the excitement of finding a piece that suits you well and will serve you in at least few situation still counts. Longer it lasts, the better, right?

SORRY, for being boring.

I think it’s time for a little heart to heart again. There are 3 points of this post. As it’s always good to post with intention of telling something and not just for the sake of keeping blog alive. Or at least so I’ve been told.

First, I want to say thank you all of you that are still reading this blog after 4 (almost 5, whaaat) years. It means the world to me, you can’t even imagine!

 SORRY, for being boring.

Second, I want to apologize. I want to say sorry, for being a boring blogger. Let’s be honest now. Posts are getting a bit dull, I think we all see how they’re not made with passion and same excitement as they used to be. And reason being is not, that I don’t have any better ideas. It’s the lack of time or someone to help me get them done. Let’s face it, blogging is sometimes a two-man job…

I admit, recently there was a lot of thoughts about quitting. My crazy work-school schedule barely leaves me breathe, let alone be super creative in my spare time. All that got me thinking about how it all started, why I even decided to blog. And? I’ve always said that blogging is my hobby. And outlet for my thoughts, creativity flow. It was never meant to be a proper business. That unfortunately means it gets sided whenever other, more important things, arise. As they are arising now. I realized I’ve been treating this blog more of a burden lately than what it should be – fun. So, there was a decision to make. Post regularly, but just for the sake of posting and not quitting or stop and post whenever I have something real to say?

 SORRY, for being boring.

Jumping to my final point, I don’t want to quit. I want to get better. To do better. Posts may be less frequent, but I want them to be valuable, interesting to read, have a real point and be better quality. If that means only a post a week, so be it.

And I don’t want to make this (another) big pompous promise how everything will change from this day on. Because it might not. I just wanted to be honest. But I promise I’ll try.

After three full weeks into my new school year routine of classes and working, I think it’s now safe to say we crossed from completely crazy to somewhat normal and routinely. On more of a fashion note, I’m slowly adjusting to colder temperatures. Getting out cozy jumpers, figuring out what’s still missing in my closet for upcoming winter, getting together new ideas for new outfits… Perhaps some of it finally finds its way to the blog. Keep your fingers crossed!

Home Decor Inspiration

There’s blogfeed for fashion and there’s Pinterest for home decor inspiration. What can I say, I got hooked! In hope to once finish this apartment, I started collecting inspiration on boards. Aah, just looking at those pretty photos, makes me wanna jump right into them… My Ikea shopping list is getting really long, I an tell you that much!

As you will notice, the focus are shelves. Kitchen, living room, I want them everywhere! Cabinets and closets can suffocate a small room, so I figured I’d go with the open storage. Besides, keeping things out on the open makes you remember what you have. And they can look really pretty too, see some proof below!
