Yep, I am really trying this again. I passed once (see how I made it possible here) and failed miserably over the last 12 months, but as of January 1st I am back on the 5 Piece French Wardrobe principle again. (If you want to read what it’s all about, it’s best to read this (very old) post.)
What might make things a little easier this time is the fact that I do not want or need anything specific right now (except for
maybe those Valentino Tango pumps I wrote down on my Christmas wishlist (size 38 in non-patent black or red pretty please)). If we are going to do this, it’s best to start without wanting a bunch load of things already.
As for basics, I do need a new black belt since mine has been held together by a piece of duct tape for a while now. Do you know how hard it is to find a simple black belt that is far from boring? Maybe I should just take mine to a leather magician and get it reproduced or something.
Other than that, I need to either take my Margiela suit to a proper tailor or sell it and get a new one that actually fits like a glove.
Ok, here’s my rules for the next six months.
1. Basics don’t count.
2. Shoes do.
3. Accessories don’t count unless they’re over 100 euros.
Simple as that. Let’s do this!
Anyone with me?
PS: If you really don’t know how to get started, here’s a post on that too.
