Shopping Your Closet... On Accident

This past Sunday I was getting ready, and I went in our closet to pick out some accessories and I came across this necklace. Not that weird - except that I had completely forgot I owned it. I've had it for probably a year. I think I've worn it once before, but I'm not sure. How could I have completely forgotten about it?! I got it at Forever 21 and I'm sure it cost less than $5. I'm mad I had forgotten about it!
Do you ever forget about things that you already own? Do you ever go to shop in your own closet and end up surprised?

Or is it just me?!

All the time. I travel so much that I forget I own anything other than what's in my suitecase. I need to get better at rotating what actually get's packed.

You're singing my song (and girl I'm a broken record on this one). When the Chef built out that walk-in I found 2 pairs of boots and 2 pairs of flats - still in their boxes - from at least a year, possibly two ago.

Sadly, I barely recalled buying 3 of those pairs. Which is why I am now on wallet restriction shopping my closet. I've had to give myself a timeout. And it ain't pretty.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Oh yes. I think that happens when we own too much jewelry lol.

Valerie said...

It's adorable! I totally do that at times too. Sometimes I'll find things with the price tag still on it and not even remember buying it! Needless to say, I have a "problem". Haha.

I LOVE shopping in my own closet. That's why I started WIWW! There is A LOT of adorable things I haven't worn in a while since I only wear whats in the front of my closet/on the top of my drawers.

i am constantly loosing things in my closet. i wake up and go, where the hell did everything go?! and the worst part is i dont remember what im missing, its just this feeling that things are gone. then six months later i go hey! there that is.
terrible lol :)

ps ur date outfit is cute. uneventful dates are sweet! the bf took me hiking (which i mistakenly suggested) and he chose this crazy uphill climb and then we ran into a rattlesnake on the way down. NOT. COOL. :)
