Ever had an item that you were iffy about initially but then ends up being amazing? For me it was this metallic rose gold skirt. I admired it for weeks but part of me thought it was a bit too crazy on the hanger. Wearing gold or silver has become pretty common, but rose gold seemed more intimidating.
Then it went on sale and my fashion FOMO kicked in. Our brains work in such strange ways sometimes. Regardless, I’m glad I gave in because this skirt is amazing. I’m obsessed with the colour. As soon as I tried it on it seemed so right. And it has FOUR functional pockets. When I wear it I can go out like a man, with all my essentials in the pockets. What more could a girl want?
Moral of the story: don’t be afraid to buy the seemingly crazy items. If you really love them, they’ll make you feel confident and it will show. Plus, from my experience 99% of clothes look different once they’re on a body. Have you ever noticed that crazy items seem natural on confident people? The worst case scenario is that you’ll get some looks from people who you’ll never see again.
