I’m not gonna lie to you, this duster was an absolute STEAL! Generally speaking I hate colour, I just don’t feel like it suits me at all however, there’s something about the pastel/sky blue that really struck me. The best part is something I wasn’t aware happened but apparently Primark do this thing called a sale?! I thought it was universally impossible for Primark to go much cheaper than it already is. So I ummed and aaahed about weather I should take a gamble and add some colour to my wardrobe and would I wear it often enough to justify the price tag. I mean at £3.00 that’s pretty much the price of a coffee! Was I willing to give up my daily dose of starbucks for this!? DUUUUUH…. I truly truly love it.
It dawned on me tonight as I was sorting through my wardrobe at who knows what hour – because ‘why not’. Every piece of clothing I own has a memory or story attached to it. Be it a thrifted pair of polka dot lookalike pajama bottoms, or a vintage shoulder padded (skanky to some peoples opinions) blazer. Take a second to step back next time your having a sort through and remember all of those times you wore that particular piece of clothing and stop…
It’s pretty crazy. That’s the reason I love everything about the wardrobe I own. I may look at it every morning and think ‘ damn I have nothing to wear’ but at the end of the day, it’s you in every moment, any day. The things you put on your body. This is what makes me the horder I so severely am.

Day three half way to the finish point. I had another good day but found it quite a struggle to remember where everything is in the different departments ( I’ll get there!! ). In a brief summary I sorted through post, steamed a load of dresses, took minutes in the buyers meeting to type up the report and a bunch of admin on the computer in between running dresses to the different departments. I’m really enjoying absorbing in the office atmosphere and learning new things.
