#NeverEnough! The perfect hashtag for an avid shopaholic like me, and of course every fashion, beauty, travel and food blogger out there, and basically everyone with a steady income stream, and probably everyone else too. #NeverEnough…who doesn’t want more? We all want more of one or the other thing. Some of us can’t get enough of shoes, others are lipstick addicts and still others explore a different city every weekend.
And you know what? That’s perfectly alright! If we have the means to finance our healthy addictions then we should go for it. And yet, I dare you not to. Why? In one of my previous articles I told you how I reluctantly decided to clear out my wardrobe and get rid of almost 90kg of my precious possessions. Before the clear-out I bought new stuff almost every week, the more the better. “Old” clothes started to bore me, I had nothing to wear, I had exhausted all possible combinations, it just wasn’t enough.
Yet, since the clean-out I haven’t bought a single new item to complement my wardrobe (I got a silk scarf for Christmas, but that’s really all I added). I just haven’t felt the need yet. My clean, streamlined wardrobe made me realise how numb my sartorial senses had become. I finally know exactly what I own, and can appreciate every single piece for what it is – a little wonder of versatility. Suddenly, every piece I own has become so much more interesting and can be combined in a million fabulous ways I had never thought of before. We might not like the word restraint, but if we don’t want to lose the ability to appreciate what we already have, it’s important to embrace it from time to time.
