Today while I was getting ready, I decided to either s**t or get off the pot, as my dad used to say. I pulled out my old Equipment silk shirts and swore I was either going to wear one or let it go...or at least take steps to let it go. Well, I put one on over a tank top and jeans, and just was not enjoying it at all. The brushed silk feels nice, but it catches on the jeans, bunches up at my hips, and the pocket flaps above my boobs annoyed me. I don't even love layering jackets over them because the floppy collars don't lie neatly inside jacket collars.
Despite my knowledge of the whole concept of sunk costs, I'm kind of bummed about this. I have three of these blouses from 5-6 years ago, and I wore them a bit back then, but I just don't enjoy them any more. But I love the colors, and the quality is amazing, so I tentatively put them on the closet door of my holding zone. But should I just give up and sell them? I have been building up quite a pile of stuff to sell, and have not yet gotten around to putting it all on eBay, which is quite a project in itself. I suppose I could take them to consignment too.
Part of me (my mother's influence) says hang onto them because they are nice and maybe someday I'll figure out how to wear them so that I enjoy them again (tucked into bootcuts? but I've been kinda over that look for years, but it might come back in???).
Somebody talk some sense into me. I clearly inherited some of my mom's reluctance to let things go.
