Do I really need to buy that?

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

The big sale season has well started in France, and I am finding myself deeply torn between the desire to buy something on bargain and my mantra to own as little as possible.

I already own a lot more than can be packed into my 23kg bag, now. Way more shoes than I'd normally carry around the world with me, way more makeup than I'd ever indulged myself with. Do I really need that dress, those shoes? Where is this inner pressure coming from?

There is nothing wrong with wanting to look good, though not entirely girly and feminine, necessarily. Maybe it has something to do with the desire to break out from the monotonous black and neutral outfits I seem to be sticking to?

Wear more of what you have, or replace what you don't wear anymore, but please don't add more to your collection, if at all possible, I tell myself.
