Yes I am a firm believer in "just wear whatever you want, don't think to much about labels" but I have many times found myself buying stuff that interest me in the stores and then I end up never wearing it.
Meaning that I like the clothes, but just as clothes, not as anything I actually feel comfortable in.
An example of this is my recent bend towards pastel accents in clothes. I was totally in love with a a lilac dress the other day and considered buying it. Then I went to town and got a pair of lilac stockings to quench some of my pastel urges.. And I ended up wearing them just once... And I didn't even feel that pretty/comfortable in them. So in the long run pastel is not for me, but I do apreciate how it looks on other people and in general.
Or for example that I have had a lot of skirts etc with great designs, but I never ended up wearing them because the fabrics was too plain. Black cotton that is ;P
Colours I shoulds keep in my closet:
- Black (duh!)
- Deep red.
- Deep bue.
- Deep green.
- Deep purple.
- Deep turqoise.
- White - as accent, I rarely wear a lot of it.
- Maybe a dab of grey.
- Pastel colours
- Neon colours
- Meh colours (too uninteresting)
- Bright red... I just don't like how this one looks on me.
I want my wardrobe to contain mainly of these fabrics:
- If cotton, text patterned, striped, dotted or otherwise a bit more "special"
- Knitted net type
