worn to death


there were periods in my life where i'd choose a piece of clothing as my favorite and never stop wearing them until i wear them out or in the case of my pleated khakis, until my cousin called out my attention that i've always been wearing them. i think all of us can relate to this --- having a shirt or dress that tends go through the washer more than it should for its own sake. 

in the early years of grade school, i had this 'rosalinda' floral dress with cross straps at the back that i never stopped wearing, even to play chinese garter with friends in the neighborhood. in 5th - 6th grade, i had a pair of short overalls that i wore almost every week because it was just sooo comfortable and i loved styling it in different ways just as Tai, played by Brittany Murphy (R.I.P.), did in Clueless when she was at a party with Cher and she had nothing else to do but style her overalls. in high school, i wore the aforementioned pleated khaki pants to death --- with white tank tops or button-up shirts and my brown platforms (ala Spice Girls). i went through college and couldn't stop wearing my trusty old vintage tee that i thrifted which had vintage cars lined all over the front.

now i think this stripe tee with sequined pockets is going to be my new overused piece of clothing. i wore it on the last day in Bangkok and right after it went through the laundry, i had to wear it again for a meeting with an accessories designer. right now, it's sitting in my closet waiting to be worn again ---maybe next time with my new pleated pants.

ps. isn't mr. fox just adorable? i bought it for only 70 baht and i had to buy two items to get it at that price. imagine my panic when i couldn't find any other ring that fit me because the rest were all too big. good thing they considered a necklace as the other item.

Mr. Fox is a cutie!

I can relate to over-using some items. Sometimes, that makes me a boring style blogger. Haha. I use my oxfords A LOT! :D

aizkim said...

i totally can relate to certain-wardrobe-overuse. Am so in love with tunics, i wear them practically everyday til i run out of options! (you made me laugh with the chinese garter thing....i used to play that too even in my skirt)

YOU LOOK INCREDIBLE. I love love love the pleats. Looks like it'd be a fun outfit to spin around in!

And I know what you mean - I most DEFINITELY have the tendency to love some of my pieces a little too much! :) Especially when I was a kid. Can't believe that silly blue dress lasted for so long, such a TROOPER..
