35. Are you generally a good judge of whether what you buy will end up being worn? Have you figured out how to know in advance?

if it haunts me if I don't at first, I will wear it. if I can stretch in every way and be bloated on occasions I will wear it. if it has a story of a person I know who made it or a story of how I got it, it will be worn many many times with much love. if I impulse buy when feeling bad that's the only occasion I might not because it's not actually 'me'.

I'm awful at this. I'm trying to get better, but I quite often buy things that I love the look of and then never wear again. Mostly it's things that I've seen on other people that look really cool - that I then can't really pull off. Crazy things recently have been a silver bomber jacket and bright red socks...

yes, finally in my dotage...

Yes i feel i have, most of the stuff i buy, i buy for a reason.

Yes. Once I know it wont be worn, I give it out.
I'm still trying to figure out how to know in advance by sticking to my list even when i see something i like

Yes, I'm extremely good at buying what I will need and use. It's taken a lot of practice, but I'm really proud of this skill.

I consider myself quite good at judging if it’ll be worn. If I like it, I’ll wear it. So if I like it, I buy it.

Usually, but it's just about saying "I won;t buy this if I won't wear it."

Yes. I normally think about buying the clothes I want ahead of time.

I know exactly what I like and I know how to use the computer to find it in advance.

Yes I try on the clothes to make sure I like the way it looks for my age.

actually yes, since i started making my own clothes i feel pretty good at discernment of what i need and will use.

Not buying has solved a lot of that dilemma.


Maybe today. I'm trying to think what kind of clothes I usually wear, in what kind of situations. And will I be able to combine this new piece with those at home. Or does it solve a problem ("I can't go riding if it rains, because I don't have a proper raincoat." So I bought one.)

Generally I am, this is a learned behaviour though. However, I still refuse to cut the tags off a garment until I am 100% sure it is going to be worn. If it still hasn't been worn up until a week before the exchange period is up I will take it back to the store for a refund.
