I have a tendency to hold onto my most beautiful treasured garments, preserving them for wear when there’s a special event or occasion that may elicit such a special piece. But guess what? That means that I barely get to wear them at all, and the time to take these pieces out for a spin is…NOW. When I first picked up this jacket a few months ago, I knew it was destined for great things, but all that happened since was that I would pause admiringly at it while rifling through my closet, and then move onto something that had been worn a bunch of times before, saving it for a more substantial day. On a whim (and in a tired stupor), in the early morning hours of frantically getting ready for work I plucked it from its hanger, slid my arms through it, and turned the doorknob.
Moral of the story? If you love it, wear it, and wear it NOW. You’ll feel more comfortable and less cautious when using these special pieces, and have less regrets of not making the most of them while in your possession.
