Attended a friends birthday today. It was at his home out on their undercover deck but it was very cold. At the last moment I popped a large black wrap (not shown) in my bag, which I ended up wearing the whole time. It was one of those rare occasions where my desire to wear a certain thing overrode my commonsense which told me to wear something warm!
This top looks a bit like this one but it is different and has a bit of a story. It's from Danier Leather in Canada and I had been lusting over it for some time when a beautiful friend from the land of the maple leaf, advised me that it was on deep sale and she would be happy to pick one up and send it to me. Well it took some time to get here and in the meantime I came across the one in the other post which I bought... just in case. The Danier one finally arrived and I felt they were different enough to warrant keeping both. I am not big on wearing patterns unless they are pretty abstract and anything in an abstract black and white is very appealing to me (think recent Allsaints ranges). The patterns are different, the necklines are different and the back (which cannot be seen) is different.
I like to keep a quite carefully curated wardrobe and everything I buy really has to earn it's place. I don't like clutter or a wardrobe stuffed full of clothes but rather a smaller collection of clothing I love and wear often, so I am careful about duplication. After much consideration I decided there was room for both tops in my closet!
How about you? Do you ever duplicate pieces? And do you have self imposed rules to assess what enters your closet?
