I really like this look on you,the softer colours make a nice change from the more high contrast outfits l have seen you in although they suit you very well as well.
As for your question,l think when l was younger l really yearned to have exactly the right piece but now although l still can feel that urge l don’t pay so much attention to it.I think for me,and l am only talking about me,it was almost a perfectionist thing .Nowadays l tend to think about the environmental cost of wardrobe churn and whether if not spending my hard earned cash on something is really worth it.Having said that if the perfect piece comes along it can totally open up the rest of one’s wardrobe so l guess it just depends!
