Let’s talk about the idea of cost-per-wear. It’s the rationale I use to justify expensive clothing — if I wear something 3x a week , it will only be three years before the cost-per-wear is pennies!
But in this instance, I found a pair of vintage Levi’s in Portland for $20 and I wear them every day. The cost-per-wear on these babies is actually pennies and I’ve only had them for a few months.
Now, I don’t always feel super cute in them. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve worn these to a shoot and someone will post a behind the scenes – and it’s always a shot of me shooting in my boyfriend jeans. These jeans are not doing my behind any favors. But there are so many days when looking cute doesn’t matter. I might need to stop buying clothes based on how I look and just pick stuff that feels good.
There’s a lot to be said for successful people and their self-prescribed uniform — they pick a look and just go with it. It’s possible that boyfriend jeans are my uniform. They are the only thing I come back to season after season.
The clogs, we’ll see about. They happen to be comfortable and wearable. They feel fun and hip (in that 70s mom kind of way) and I decided to get my flares hemmed so I can wear my clogs with them! This is the beauty of the capsule wardrobe in action. Figuring out what works for my lifestyle and diving headfirst into making it work.
