The other day i wore a t-shirt for the 1st time....that i bought like 3 years ago!!!!

I have several items that i can take ages to start wearing but once i do i do it a lot.

Sometimes one just have to find that day/feeling and outfit that make that unused item fit oh so well amongst one´s wardrobe.

seanutbutter, i totally understand, and that's a very smart way of shopping, but i still -think- that most people are almost 100% sure they'll wear something when they buy it, but then, when a good occasion comes, they have another item even more suitable to wear. Example:

I rarely wear formal shirts. I wear alot of big plaid shirts, or big linen shirts and similar, but extremely rarely stiff, formal shirts, unless it's required in a formal occasion. Anyway. 7 months ago, i bought a simple, white shirt, mainly because i don't have a white shirt, because it was marked down 50%, and because it was in a very small size, which i rarely find in shirts. Thinking "I can always find an occasion for a white shirt", i bought it. 7 months after, i have not worn it once. It's been several "proper" occasions, but another shirt, rarely worn too most likely, i've found more suitable, or more expensive, so i have to "justify" the buy by wearing it more.

I guess this is what happens to alot of people with the "never worn"-buys. But i guess i'll wear it sometime, somewhere.

silk Chanel scarf

It's beautiful, I've just never worn a scarf and everytime I try to wear it, it just doesn't look right.

lol. I just went through my closet, trying to filter out some winter stuff && make space for summer clothes, so I know everything down to a T, hahaha.

- I have this really beautiful red Diane Von Furstenberg dress that I thought would be a great summer cocktail dress....but, unfortunately I absolutely think it's exquisite on the hanger, but horrible on me! It's so beautiful to look at, I just can't get rid of it, haha.
- An orange Stella McCartney kind of gathered jersey dress
- Dior graffiti dress. I really don't know WHAT I was thinking, haha.
- Jean Paul Gaultier paisley print dress
- Missoni dress
- Prada tan trench
- YSL black && white dress
- Blumarine hot pink && floral wrap dress. Ewgghh.
- Gold Vera Wang dress
- Black Dolce & Gabanna dress
- Valentino floral dress
- strapless, light blue Michael Kors mini-dress
- this really beautiful yellow Oscar De La Renta ball gown with black && white flowers. I think Kerry Washington wore it somewhere. I loveeeee it, but it's a tad too big && I've never gotten around to getting it altered! :/
- Proenza Schouler shirtdress

Also, my friend told me that Christian Loubotins were the best thing since Manolo Blahnik, && extremely comfortable, so I went && bought the patent sling backs and yo-yo pumps in every single color, && they are SO uncomfortable, so unfortunately now I have all those pairs that I never even wear! Haha.

^^sounds like you've got a lot of great stuff that you don't wear!

first, get yourself to a tailor and alter the things that don't fit properly.. it could make all the difference!

also, sounds like you need to do some serious ebaying.. at the very least you'll get some money to spend on new things to hang up and admire

you could probably get decent prices for all those louboutins--especially since they've never been worn

- a classic black shift dress. I don't know why I've never worn it, it's weird

- until recently, I never wore this purple and orange racerback blousy style top before. I think I didn't know what I could wear it with, so just left it in my wardrobe

such is my dilemma personally, i think they're too nice and edgy for me to wear to work - where i'm at most of the week! that only leaves me 2 days a week to dress down...and the shoes i haven't worn certainly don't work with a casual wardrobe!
