Still With The Tags On
Shamefully, I haven't worn the Promod flapper dress, or one of the Promod blouses. I can see myself wearing the dress on my birthday perhaps, and the blouse might even get worn to work.
The Versatile Shoes
I knew I would get a lot of wear out of the grey and white brogues, but I was so unsure about the 'boring' black brogues. Now, I am so glad I bought them! I'm even thinking that I could just put some coloured laces or ribbons on, if I felt they needed jazzing up a bit.
What I Have Learnt
- You can never have enough socks or knitwear.
- Comfortable shoes get worn a lot.
- I probably have enough party dresses now.
- I need to dress smarter for work, to ensure some items get worn.
- I must wear my lingerie sets more!
I am sold on Clarks shoes. Gone are the nightmares of my school years. I want to buy more, including a pair of ballet pumps for summer and a pair of heels for work. Maybe also a 'going out' pair if something suitable is released. Clarks shoes are comfortable, leather, good quality and they come out with some impressive styles these days.
Have you been keeping track of how much you wear your purchases? What have you found out? And how is this going to shape your future purchases?
