I was rifling through my closet and saying hello to all my loves. The pieces I haven’t had any place to wear. “Nonessential” luxuries of the wardrobe, if you will. All my lovely heels and bags are collecting dust, just waiting for our next date nights and future events. As much as I love loungewear and comfortable attire, I miss having an excuse to get dolled up. I’m a fashion girl after all.
I pulled the pumps Dan got me for my birthday out of their dust bags to say hey, and realized how much I miss certain corners of my closet. It’s kind of the same feeling you have in summer when you’re longing to be wrapped in a cozy sweater. Like you know the time will come, but you wish it was tomorrow. There are four major fashion categories I really miss right now.
My Current Missed Fashion Items
Heels. I guess I could be a badass and wear heels to the grocery store, but I’m not that person. I need an event or a date or a night out to get out those babies. In particular, I especially can’t wait to wear my Dior slingback birthday gift heels, Loeffler Randall gold knot sandals, and a pair of vintage Fendi heels I got on ThredUp.
Handbags. The only bag I’ve been using is our diaper bag for when we go on walks. I’m not sure why I even bring it, given the fact that we’re only gone for an hour at a time. This bag reminds me of our trip to London, and I distinctly remember buying this one for myself to celebrate a long stint of hard work. I’m looking forward to having a reason to wear my bags!
Lipstick. Admittedly, I haven’t been wearing much lipstick since Sidney was born because I like to kiss her cheeks constantly. When I’ve been wearing it, it is just for me, a shoot, or to record an Instagram story for a brand. Remember my January lipstick challenge when I wore a different lipstick every day for the month of January? That was SO fun, and a great way to explore my collection! Perhaps I should do another challenge in June with more summery colors.
Perfume. I love perfume because it can be so meaningful in so many ways. For instance, I still have the first bottle of Clinique Happy that Dan got me when we dated in high school. I know my mom still has my grandmother’s favorite perfume, and wears it on special occasions. I have a bottle of Chanel chance that splurged on when I studied abroad in Europe in college, and a delicious fragrance from our honeymoon in Italy. Each fragrance is a mood and takes me to a special place. But being at home hasn’t inspired me to wear any of them. Perhaps I should still wear a spritz, even if it is just for me.
