I Can’t Sleep

and I’m listening to Duffy’s “Warwick Avenue”. Bloody good song.

Been thinking of revamping the wardrobe gradually. I’ve got too many clothes hidden in the wardrobe that I’m not wearing because they either don’t fit anymore or belong to the years of the dinosaurs. I think it has got something to do with age as well. Your taste changes as well. Of course, there are a few which have not seen the world. They’ve been there since I removed it from the shopping bag and has since collected dust. This, I call would shopping mistake. Something which I’ve been making sure I commit less and no mistakes of such and I think I’m getting better at it. Everytime I see something and feel like buying, I will ask myself 3 times if I will be wearing this, how do I match this with my existing clothes (the more the better, especially if it’s work wear) and is the price worth the buy.

While browsing through the new, not so new, not so old and old stuff, I found out that sometimes investing a little more on a clothing item of a particular brand has got its benefits. Some clothes don’t have the “worn off” effect even though it has been worn so many times.

I like looking at people who dresses well. It can be a simple tee and jeans but they are able to pull it off very well, knowing what colours to match, how the clothings matches their body types and shapes. You get to learn how to dress better also by observing how people wear their clothes, how to mix and match in ways you’ve never think of. Sometimes we have this pre-determined logic set in our head that this should always go with that and never in another way. But you know what, sometimes what you think doesn’t go along well or matches, actually matches perfectly well.

I think I need to go through every piece of clothing in my wardrobe, study how to maximise the full potential of every piece that I can find, so that I get more variety with the few pieces, plan ahead of what to wear especially during work days then I don’t have to say I don’t have anything to wear even though I know they are just in there hidden somewhere but I just can’t seem to find it. I often always wear rotate the same few pieces, most of the time my favourites, that I forget I have other clothes that I can actually wear.

My mama says if you don’t dress up when you’re young, when are you going to dress up?

My mama’s daughter thinks if one wears nicely, it makes one feel good, if one feels good, one feels positive, when one is positive, everything will fall into place.

12:10am. Still listening to Duffy’s Warwick Avenue but I really must head to bed. I think I can sleep now.

I’m leaving you for the last time baby…
You think you’re loving but you don’t love me.
I’ve been confused outta’ my mind lately…
You think you’re loving but I want to be free.
Baby you’ve hurt me.
