the moral wardrobe: second tries



Ethical Details: Sweater – NOVICA; Jacket – thredup*; Boots – secondhand via ebay; Necklace – MadeFAIR*

Sometimes I photograph an outfit only to realize upon reviewing the photos that I hate it. I switched out my sweater and jacket and ended up with something that felt much more me. I have a tendency as a shopper to buy multiples of the same thing until I find the perfect version of it and occasionally I wonder what that says about me. Am I striving for perfection? Is that healthy? Do I need the thing at all if I can’t seem to make it work?

In the case of this “jean” jacket, I’m happy I took a second chance. I love the look of denim jackets, but I can’t stand to feel constricted in the shoulders, so this knit one from thredup was a much better fit.

I guess my point is that anything is better than nothing, but if there’s a better way, a better opportunity, than why not strive for that? (In case you wondered, I’m not really talking about clothing anymore.)

On another note, this sweater is an Alpaca/Wool blend and it’s awesome!

lol. Thank you! I just got my hair trimmed, but I finally figured out how to tell the hairstylist I want to keep some of the length in the front.
