Before I quit the corporate world in February 2005, I wore a lot of suits. They were my weekday uniform. The ones I got between 2000 and 2005 were particularly nice, and I couldn’t bear to part with them. Recently, I’ve been making an effort to wear them. I took an Alexander McQueen skirt suit for a spin in May and then wore a McQueen pantsuit in June. Later that month, I picked out a Stella McCartney pantsuit to wear to a non-jewelry business meeting. I’m not sure when I last wore it; I’m guessing 2006.

Now my uniform is, as I’ve said before, a black t-shirt and jeans. Here’s a photo from my recent trip to London. It’s notable only because I’m wearing the first new pair of jeans I’ve bought since I got boyfriend jeans in 2008.
Speaking of jeans worn in London, I realized that during my recent visit with my London-based friend Al Radley, I wore the exact same pair of Acne jeans that I wore when I visited him in 2010. Here’s this year’s photo …
… and here’s last year’s photo, with Al’s friend Caroline and Al’s poodle.
Not only do I wear the same holiday outfits year after year, I wear the same casual outfits year after year! I’m proud to say that I did wash these jeans in between Al Radley meetings. I’m crazy that way. I wash my jeans once a year whether they need it or not. Don’t judge me.
