When it just doesn't work
This Cynthia Rowley sweater almost became an Allowance Item.
I LOVE IT, but it doesn't go with anything in my wardrobe other than jeans. Despite it's neutral color, it just wasn't playing well with anything else I owned and I didn't want to designate it as weekend wear since it's quite a memorable piece. It doesn't even go with plain, black dress pants =(
I hummed and haahed and tried on so many things to make it work, but finally I just had to return it.
WHYYYY???? Sigh. Love it so much. It's so soft.
But, as painful as it was to return it, I am proud of myself for coming to terms with it and deciding not to keep it just for the sake of owning it. I'm definitely more mindful of what I'm bringing in and making sure that I not only love it, but will use it to its fullest potential.
