You know that one piece in your closet......there may be more than one but for the sake of my point, I'm just going to focus on one. So THAT one piece you knew you had to have the moment you saw it, THAT one piece that is super versatile to wear with a ton of other pieces; probably more than you thought it would be, THAT one piece you would wear everyday if you could but people may start to point and whisper. Are you following me? Do you have that one piece in mind yet? Are you envisioning your closet and wardrobe in your head? Did you just run to your closet to select that one piece? You see what I mean?!
I found THAT one piece at MGC Boutique,a cute, local consignment shop that was revamping it's look to become a modern boutique. It was a floral kimono that had the best and brightest colors and it laid on me just right. I started putting outfits together in my head immediately when I tried it on. It totally fit the bill of THAT piece! Do you know I actually walked out of the store without it! So a bit about my process when selecting a new item. I tend to do one opposite thing I mentioned above. I'm one of those people who when I see it I don't necessarily "have" to have it. Right away that is. Now, if I'm still thinking about a piece after I walk away, one I get home, a day or so later, I then have to get it. That's what happened with this kimono. Thank goodness for technology and Instagram direct message....lol! I sent a message to the store owner (the sweetest person by the way...shout out to Ashley!! Go visit her and tell her Coffee.Lipstick.Go! sent you) and said I could not stop thinking about the kimono once I got home and asked if she could hold it for me because I would be in the next day to purchase it. And that I did! Every time I look at it or go to put a look together with it, I am SO happy I have it in my closet. It's THAT one piece for me!
So the next time you see THAT one piece, maybe don't hesitate like I did but make sure it meets those top standards I mentioned: you have to have it, it's super versatile with lots of your other pieces and you want to live in it everyday! Then add it to your closet & enjoy it like I do my kimono!!
