I have several items I continue to gravitate towards when shopping, however some of them get little or just no wear. I noticed this when I saw that the loafer trend was back, I thought to myself "Oh, I'll buy a pair of loafers.." then I stopped to think of the many times I had bought loafers in several colours and styles in the recent past only to wear them once, luckily twice, hating them and then getting rid of them shortly after.
So, today I thought I'd share with you those items, the one I always buy but never wear and create awareness of this bad habit of mine.
These are my top 5, and I just realised that most of them are shoes!
Espadrilles: The most comfortable shoe EVER, I've bought several pairs and have given them away unused. However I have held on to one pair that I practically force myself to wear.
Bow shoes: I have several pairs of bow heels, bow flats that remain unworn. The ones that taunt me the most are the most expensive: a pair of Kate Spade Trophy black flats and these Red Valentino blue bow heels which have not been worn even once.
Tall boots: Crazy me. I live in a country where half of the year its summer and the other it rains. Scorching heat most of the time. However I figured tall boots would work for trips. I invested in a black pair of tall buttery black leather boots from Spain and they have been worn less than a handful of times.
Hello Kitty bags: Don't give me an odd look. I fall in love with the bag, buy it and then just let it sit there. I then question my "good" *cough* judgement and think its too childish. It's happened several times, I gave my last HK bag away this year.
Loafers: The ones that inspired this post.. as said I've bought them with tassels, penny loafers, simple loafers, high heeled loafers. Nope, same story: little or no wear.
So there you have them, my recurring shopping fails, its almost like buying that lettuce every time I go to the grocery store and then never eating it (I do that too!)
Now its your turn, what do you buy but never wear ?
As I finished writing this post, I went to Zara and bought a pair of velvet loafers...
