I’m very intuitive when shopping for clothes and accessories. I immediately know and “feel” if I absolutely love and need a piece. But after my “must-have” feeling, I also think logically if I will wear the piece, with what existing pieces I will pair it with, where can I wear it and in what kind of weather, and how long is the wearing period of that particular piece, for example is it seasonal like for winter only. Oh the woman’s mind!
This is how I convinced myself for this Massimo Dutti gorgeous full sleeve printed midi dress:
I saw it on sale in Finland this Christmas. I noticed the lovely print and I fell in love with the cut too. I thought ok, a bit hot with the sleeves in Singapore, but I can roll the sleeves and the fabric is quite airy. Coverage is enough to wear in India too. I can pair it up with leggings even, or wear it as an open jacket with jeans and a top. SOLD! Isn’t this great rationalization? 😀
