I was just reading Sallymandy’s blog The Blue Kimono and she has become a Wardrobe Refashionista for the next 2 months – this means no buying clothes, but remaking and refashioning her existing, and she says, extensive wardrobe.
Why Do We Love What we Buy and Hate What is in Our Wardrobe?
April 22, 2009 by 28 Comments
It led me to thinking – why is it that when we are in a shop and we ‘must‘ buy a new piece of clothing, do we love it so much then that we are compelled to part with our hard earned money (or even worse, spend on credit), yet when we get it home, add it to the wardrobe and then look inside we’ll often complain that we have no clothes and don’t like what we already have (and thus feel compelled to go and buy another new garment)?
Is it that we don’t really love what we are buying? We’re just bored with what we already have? Or is there some other reason that makes us go from love to hate so quickly?
What are your thoughts?
