Day 12: Wear what you have ๐Ÿ‘š

How many of us keep things for โ€œbestโ€?

I know I tend to keep things for best – apart from evening dresses that are special anyway.

Why do I ask? I have a Zoom meeting on Wednesday and Iโ€™ve promised myself Iโ€™ll wear something Iโ€™ve never worn. So, itโ€™s either my cord palazzo pants, or my cord pinafore dress ๐Ÿ™‚ I canโ€™t make my mind up. However you can guarantee Iโ€™ll look different to my usual self ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you got any clothes you save for โ€œbestโ€?

  1. I don’t have any now, I live in 2 pairs of jeans and tshirts! I have clothes I’ve not worn for ages, old work clothes, stuff that maybe no longer fits, or summer things, but nothing “for best” I really want to get out to the shops, but the reports of today in Norwich are horrendous, Im not going yet.

    1. Oh that sounds scary! It was even busy in Herne Bay where I live, usually the town has more pigeons than people, even when we are not on lockdown! Seeing people freaked me out!

  2. Well I suppose I have a couple of dresses that I wouldn’t consider wearing unless it was a special occasion. However I can’t imagine putting them on at other times..tbh most of my clothes are rags by now as I don’t really like to buy them online!

  3. i love the sentiment! using your best whatever: dishes, clothes, shoes, perfume … whatever special thing you think is too extravagant for a plain old day … shouldn’t feel off limits. none of us know if we’ll make it to the next special occasion; LIFE is special occasion enough to enjoy these pleasures!

  4. I used to, but not anymore. I don’t have occasions to have a “special” only outfit.
    These days I’m more of a legs and long shirt person. Which is very different from the person I used to be in some ways.

  5. What an interesting thought!- Your clothes being part of the person. Now that I think of it, my clothing has changed too. Partly due to an operation and partly because Iโ€™ve changed. So weird that I hadnโ€™t realised until your comment. Thanks so much!

  6. I have a collection of clothes from all years haha but now nothing really gets worn, same things every day. It’s a good idea to “dress up at home” though even if just to cheer things up Elle xx
