Yes, I’m wearing a lot of the same clothes over and over – and part of the reason is the way our apartment is furnished!
In our main room, we have THREE dining tables! Our table is behind the sofa, with the leaves dropped, and with candles and a lamp on it – it serves well as a “sofa table.”
The second, which belonged to my mother-in-law, has the leaves dropped, it’s pushed up against a wall, and our (ridiculously huge) collection of alcohol is on it. The pandemic lead to a cocktail challenge with one of our friends…
The third table is my mother’s – it’s the one at which we eat our meals!
All of this is to indicate just how FULL our apartment is. Which, for me, translates into a closet that is only maybe 1/3 accessible without moving other things. I can easily access 15 – 20 garments without going through a massive shifting of stuff…
So yeah, I wear the same things all the time. Days upon days I don’t see anyone except my family, Mom’s caregiver, and a handful of building staff. They love me no matter what I’m wearing. Thank heavens, eh?
p.s. Starting today, I’m going to wear the same charcoal v-neck yak wool sweater from Oliver Charles for seven days. There’s no incentive, commission nor gift involved – it’s a challenge that some of their customers try. I’m always fascinated to impose an external limit on my wardrobe. The sweater is wonderful, so we shall see…
A few ways I wore things, this week:
