Sharing A Closet
Don't you love it when you can borrow (*cough* steal) clothes from people in your household? I'm not lucky enough to live with a girl roommate who wears my exact shoe and clothes size, but, I do live with my boyfriend, and he happens to own some pretty stylish pieces that I like to keep an eye on. I remember a couple of years ago, he bought these pants for an event or something, and I helped pick these out with him. We loved the idea of both dressy and casual pants combined (he loved the military/cargo accents). Christopher likes that juxtaposition when he dresses, so, these were perfect for him. When they no longer fit him, he handed them off to me, and I've been holding onto them ever since, not really sure what to do with them. You know how much I love incorporating actual menswear into my wardrobe, so, I always find some kind of way to make it work.
Being able to borrow/steal from your friend, family member, or significant other's closet is always kind of fun, you get to try out something you might not have ordinarily bought for yourself, usually at no charge. I always love taking stuff from my boyfriend, I borrow shirts, pants, hats, ties, and whatever else I can get my hands on— he lucked out and found the one girl who prefers to shop in the mens' section, and wear her clothes two sizes too big. The other day, I walked out of my room wearing something, and he goes, "Is that my shirt?", it had a fed-up sorority sister tone to it, that I found amusing. We argue over clothes, you guys.
I should probably slow down on taking his stuff, before he cuts me off :P
Do you borrow all your friend's stuff, or do they borrow yours? Let me know!
P.S. For anyone who has ever wanted to shop my closet, you're in luck! I set up an Instagram shop where you can purchase lightly worn pieces from my closet, so, be sure to check out @shoptheglossier! I'll be updating it regularly with clothes, shoes, and accessories I no longer wear.
