After my massive closet clean out, I told myself that I would only purchase items that I felt like I still needed in my closet. I’m always on the search for the perfect white tee. I have plenty of white shirts, but I always find something wrong with it — the fit bothers me, the neckline bothers me, the color bothers me, etc. I mean, if it’s not one thing – it’s another. So I’ve been searching for the white tee that fits all the aspects that I want.
It’s been challenging.
This top was misplaced. It was in the area of the white tees that I happened to be going through in an attempt to find the perfect white tee that has somehow escaped me all this time. It still had the regular price on it, but I really liked the front aspect, so I took it to the dressing room with me. After I put it on, I absolutely fell in love with it. I kept thinking, “Well, I could wear it this way — or this way — or this way, so I think the cost-to-wear ratio will make up for it even though it’s not in my list.” (I really need to be more firm when it comes to following my own rules.)
So I took it to the “price check” section of the store. It was, in fact, on clearance. It was down to less than $10, and I happened to have an extra coupon that day. So really, the top came out to less than $5 in the end.
In the end, even though I wasn’t supposed to be looking for anything besides the perfect white tee (which I didn’t find), I was happy that this top was misplaced, that it was on clearance, and that I broke my own rule when it came to shopping for new items to add to my closet.
I’m still not sure if that’s a good thing or not.
