I don’t give a glam

This dress has been in my closet for a year, worn only once to a wedding. Everyday when I opened my closet, I’d look at it and think: I need to find an opportunity to wear this again.

But why should some big event happen for me to wear my nice dresses? I’ve always made the mistake of “saving” my clothes for special events, and then waiting so long that a whole season would pass.

So here I am wearing one of my prettiest dresses for no other reason than to feel beautiful.

If you’re a clothes saver like me – I hope this inspires you to wear that dress at the back of your closet. You can even wear it when you go grocery shopping!

(I actually went to Woolworths to buy dinner after this, and the looks I got were amazing!)

    You look so gorgeous, Anja! I used to do the same, but ever since my big wardrobe purge and my journey to minimalism last year I now wear whatever I want when I want and I don’t give a damn about saving things for a special occasion anymore, because life is special and it’s happening right here, right now in this very moment and we may as well use it or lose it, haha 🙂 xoxo
