From the mouths of babes

I hoard certain things.

Makeup.

Shoes.

Evening gowns.

Costumes.

Lingerie.

I think it’s very odd that I hoard these things because the truth is (other than the costumes), I BARELY use any of it.

I just feel compelled to buy it.

Take lingerie for instance.

I have five drawers FULL of lingerie.

I used to have seven but I downsized.

The other day I bought aqua, lavender, and pink camisoles for an outfit for Burning Man.

You’d think the shopping was finished after I bought those, but you’d be wrong.

I had to buy matching lingerie.

Why?

Will anyone ever see my lingerie?

I certainly hope so, but it’s not very likely.

The last opportunity I had to show off lingerie was with the Swede and instead of trying to (drunkenly) get into a teddy held together by delicate little straps and lace, I opted to sleep IN THE NUDE.

My son came into my room as I was buying a push up, pink racerback bra.

He glanced at my computer screen, saw the description of the bra, looked me square in the eye and said. . .

“Do you REALLY need a push up bra, mom? Isn’t that being a bit redundant?”

  1. I am a minimalist. I have very few clothes and accessories. The things that I have are things that I absolutely love or were things given to me by people that I love. But there is something about having a deep stash of things that bring you pleasure that I find compelling. If lingerie, costumes, accessories give you options that you might want to pursue – go for it!!! I think you have incredible taste that is really YOU!!! 🙂

  2. I love lingerie. I have very little, myself, but it is lovely to know someone out there enjoys and has it! Madonna went with just a bra and made it popular, go for it!
