There have been a few pieces which have just been taking up space in my wardrobe and haven’t been working as hard as they should. I have already spoken about my faux leather trousers being difficult to wear and why I’ve not worn them as much as I’d hoped (read the post here) so I won’t mention them in this post. The first loser is this Topshop wrap front blouse (top of the pile), which I haven’t worn at all this season. It has a very deep v cut at the front and I had meant to sew it a little higher so I could wear it without a cami underneath, but never got round to it. I think if I had really wanted to I would have found the time to make the changes but I didn’t which I think shows I didn’t really want to wear it. It’s a shame because it is a nice top but if I feel self-conscious wearing it, then there isn’t really any point in keeping it.
The second loser is this oversized knit from Topshop. When I first bought this I loved the oversized shape and the longer length, however, I do find this shape difficult to wear. Being petite I sometimes think this looks like I’m a little kid wearing my dad’s jumper, which as a 30-year-old women isn’t a good look. I lose my shape when wearing this and although I do like things oversized I still want to show my figure a little at the same time. Another thing that really annoys me about this is it creases really easily. It’s my only knitwear which needs to be ironed every time I wear it and boy is it tough to iron.
My third loser is another item which wasn’t worn at all. I added this Topshop skater dress at the last minute as I thought I didn’t have any smarter options just in case. In hindsight, this was a bit stupid on my part as I have my special occasion wardrobe if I get invited anywhere fancy and I don’t really get that dressed up when I go out so really didn’t need a smart dress in my capsule wardrobe.
