Now that I think about it - totally silly.
Since living overseas I came to understand that physical possessions are totally replaceable and when it comes down to it, they really don't hold much value.
So now I live by the mantra that the 'special' pieces in my wardrobe aren't just for special occasions. I try to wear and enjoy them everyday. My designer bags get daily outings. The most revered dresses in my wardrobe get worn to work. And new shoes get an outing the day they are purchased.
You could argue that this makes these pieces less special, but I now whole-heartedly disagree. My most treasured items are the ones I turn to time and time again, not the wow factor item hiding away at the back of the closest waiting for its moment.
The old 80:20 wardrobe saying is true - you wear 20% of your wardrobe 80% of the time. So why not make that 20% those extra special pieces. After all, you only live once.
