I am hard to shop for in general but especially when it comes to clothes. There are several unworn pieces in my closet as proof that many times even I can’t shop for myself. This explains my latest resolve to only buy clothes that fit a certain (humdrum) color scheme. So far it seems to be helping the cause of not spending more than 1-minute to pick an outfit that matches in the mornings (or anytime really).
My Indian-clothes however are a whole different story. Everything in that section of the closet is so vibrant, colorful, glittery, and flamboyant. I love this side of me! And I have achieved it only by outsourcing the actual buying to my sister.
Lucky for me, she is a frequent visitor of India. This summer she spent about 6-weeks traveling around the country soaking in all that she didn’t get a chance to see when we lived there. While that is all well and good, I made sure she didn’t forget to restock my Indian wear. I finally saw everything she bought for me while in Charlotte this past week. As I was trying things on I was so giddy that I kept repeating how someone needs to get married soon so I can wear my new clothes! Another reason it is awesome to have a sister.
