The science of love

Although I don’t wear them too often, I do have a small collection of scarves…and this heart-motif knit is my latest acquisition.  It was – as I like to say! – just too cute to leave behind!!

Do you ever wonder what makes us fall madly in love with certain pieces, but turn our noses up at others??  Why do we have “favourite” colours, while other shades will leave us cold??  How does something that we once found unattractive suddenly become very much so…and vice versa??

I’m sure there’s all sorts of interesting theories behind the choices that we make; the psychology of fashion is a legitimate field of study, after all!!  But I’m happy enough to leave the analysis to others, and simply enjoy the thrill of making my next great shoe or bag or dress discovery.

Of course, this means another wardrobe purge will always be inevitable…those older, no-longer-worn pieces have to make way for my newest loves.  My husband was complaining last night that my “stuff” was starting to take over our front hall closet, too!!  Oops!!

      It's (not yet?!) second nature for me to reach for a scarf to complete an outfit, dearest Kelsey and Kenecha…but when I finally wrap one around my neck I always think "why don't I do this more often??" And it WOULD be rather interesting to understand the appeal of particular colours and styles; why do so many of us have a thing for black, for example?? It doesn't exactly scream "happy," does it??…but somehow, I feel happy when I wear it!! P.S. Yes to the mutual follow on Twitter!! 🙂

    Monika, I LOVE you with that scarf on you. You're right, far too cute & lovely to leave behind. As for clothes taking over closets? Yup, 4 years of blogging and I'm pretty sure I have enough to open a boutique! Haha, our storage locker (which is huge) is bursting!! Wishing you a lovely Monday, sweets!! xoxo

      Oh boy…I can't imagine what Robin would say if my clothes starting migrating to our storage locker, dearest Veronika!! 😉 "Out with the old, in with the new" will just have to keep being my mantra…at least until we win the lottery!! Then we'll move to a place with an extra bedroom that I can convert to a walk-in closet; wouldn't that be absolutely heavenly?! XOXO

      Thank you so much, dear Patricia!! I'm pretty confident that this scarf will see a few more outfit combinations before the winter is over!! 🙂
