I really like so many of the pieces here:
Although the wedding is behind me I still intend to avoid any spendthrift inclinations. I have a closet full of things I already adore. I can tell how much I still adore these items when I find myself gravitating toward new pieces that feel similar.
Anthropologie's Chocolate and Coffee Coat synthesized with the Crowley Coat reminds me of my Marc by Marc Jacobs number from years back.
The Dusk Ruffles Coat from Anthropologie looks not unlike my Tibi Ruffle Coat from last year.
And the Cym and Ripple Coat reminds me of my full skirted coats. Alice + Olivia on the left and Plenty by Tracy Reese (Elimovna) on the right.
I have a few dresses that remind me of the above. And I already have previous season versions or similar likeness bags and shoes. When I wander around a store looking for something special, I keep thinking of what I have. This is probably a much healthier approach to consumption than my previous spate of repeat buying. But it means I have been leaving more and more stores empty handed. That's probably a good thing too.
