“Perhaps too much of everything is as bad as too little.” – Edna Ferber

I am going to talk about getting ready. Girls getting ready can be a nightmare! Guys, you know this.

Let me explain why I, and probably many others, take so long.

I would never describe myself as a ‘material’ person.  People and the world and all that shit mean so much more to me than material goods. But fashion means a lot. For a girl who spends so much time in her pyjamas, I spend a lot of time and money on clothing and accessories. I read about it every day, and browse at online shops even when I don’t want or can afford anything. I walk past shops in town, end up in them and carrying out huge bags! It’s a disease!

Yet, somehow, even though I own all of these things, even getting dressed to pop into town on the weekend is an ordeal. It’s not because I don’t have anything to wear. It’s because I have about 2 days a week when I can dress how I like, and I have a huge choice. I don’t know what I am going to end up doing, because I’m just so spontaneous and all! What if I need proper shoes for something?

The worst thing is, even though I have a very varied choice, I haven’t bought items that go together. I have known people with very little clothes who always look great. I always thought it was odd wearing the same thing so often. How could they do that and not get fed up? But you know what, they can get dressed in a few minutes. They look good and feel it because they know the outfit works for them. I’m still trying on top after top and then changing into a dress. It’s infuriating! For me as well as anyone waiting for me.
Really, the first outfit was fine, but I try the others anyway, just in case they’re better.

Maybe too much of everything really can be as bad as too little. Maybe we don’t need to keep wondering if there is something better.

    I love how you summed it up “Maybe we don’t need to keep wondering…” Very rightly said. We have to learn to be contend with what we have rather than just running after something blindly 🙂

      Thanks!
      Exactly! Some people spend so long looking for the next best thing that they forget what they already have.
