I consider myself a treasure collector of sorts.
I remember driving home from a thrift store on the other side of town when I was about 16. On that drive I made the decision to become a treasure collector. I was sick of trying to play keep up with my clothes. Tired of showing up to school after Christmas break wearing the same American Eagle striped shirt as every other girl. Forget getting dressed just to get by in life… I wanted to wear things that made me feel amazing. Everyday.
When I shop I no longer think, “Do I need this?’ or “Is this a gap in my closet?”
Rather I ask myself, “Do you love it?” ” Will you wear it?” “Does it feel like a treasure?”
Once I started to fill my closet with treasures I was always excited to put clothes on. Now dressing is one of my favorite hobbies and past times. Sometimes I enjoy getting ready to go way more than I enjoy actually being out!
