I don't wear this dress enuf. I always think that each time I take it out to wear. Then the reason comes: One button fell out in the bust -- it's safe in a buttons holder and another inevitably follows -- but I'm yet to put them all back on. I thrifted it early last year when my ngoja had many summer dresses come in.

Recently, I've been overthinking clothes. I see a lot of clothes during my commute to work (especially in the morning) and I feel overwhelmed. Sometimes I spot things from a moving taxi and start thinking about them in outfits. Of course, none of these clothes actually come in my size. All my clothes are old -- I'm talking when Mr P's Insync Curve was still a thing old -- but I still feel like I'm in a constant cycle of buy. March wans't a great month for mental health and it's fitting that I had anxiety about "fast fashion" and how disposable it all is (even though I can't fit into most of it). When it rains it pour and all that, worry about all the things.
Of course, I'm probably experiencing these feelings because I haven't successfully thrifted for myself in months. Thrifting, the "reuse" quality of it, certainly makes me feel a little better about the buy buy buy frenzy that sometimes takes over my brain. I think my store (still closed) and all its merchandise filling up my life if part of why these feelings happen.
Perhaps, to singal that the month of madness had ended, I found myself lusting after a pair of satin and lace shorts a Donna. I still haven't stopped putting them in imaginary outfits. My wallet stayed in my bag (thank, goodness) and I didn't feel myself get anxious about clothes and landfills.
I noticed that the dress had redundant buttons on the sleeves and resolved to use the to mend the front. I'm getting to it. And, hopefully, I'll be able to wear it more this year.
My face in these pictures was doing its own thing. The lipstick is from Ackermans and love it -- view a better shot of it here. Yeah, month was an anxoius month.
What are you wearing or thinking about buying lately?
