When is Enough, Enough?
Sentimental value isn't enough keeping a relationship going.
It's that time of the year when we dig out our favourite party frock and start questioning if it still works.
Perhaps you know exactly what I'm talking about?
You purchased a dress to wear for an event some years ago. It hangs there, in your wardrobe, making you feel guilty for not wearing it. After all it cost a lot of money, and now, you cross your fingers hoping it won’t make you look ridiculously dated.
Perhaps it’s time to let it go?
Here’s where calculating cost per wear is important knowledge to have.
Take that dress:
? How much did it cost? ? How many times have you worn it?
Cost (-) times worn (=) cost per wear.
e.g. you paid £500 you worn it 3 times. Cost per wear equals £167. And, that’s just the dress…
With the actual cost in mind, is it worth spending more money on it, or, should you sell it and buy something more suitable?
Only you know the answer to this question.
Here’s another, very important question to ask yourself.
Do I love me in this dress?
Perhaps it’s a more difficult question to answer? However, this is the time to let the experts take over.
This is what I would do.
I would try it on, take a selfie, and see if I love me in it = Does it feel comfortable, do I have the right posture when I wear it, do I love it enough to leave my home wearing it?
If it does fit and I love the way it makes me feel – I wear it just like it is.
If it doesn’t make me feel ‘lovely’ and if I want a fresh take on the item in question, I would rummage through my accessory box to see what I could use to update it.
If I can’t find anything, I’ll consider selling it at a dress agent. Why hold on to something that doesn’t do me justice?
Another question to ask yourself:
If the dress was a partner, would I accept the way it makes me feel?
Perhaps enough is enough?!
Perhaps now’s the time to find your confidence level and start working on becoming an authentic version of who you truly are?
