the not investment piece.

On Monday I waxed poetically about making smarter purchases over the past year - pieces that fulfill a hole in my closet, pieces that can be worn multiple ways, and something that I'll wear for years. While those are admirable goals, like Jacquie and Jessica both said, the statement/non essential pieces are necessary too, and may just be the pieces we like the most. I bought this sweater a few weeks ago when Chris and I were in Minneapolis. It doesn't fulfill a need (....who really has a need for a linear black, grey, cream, and peach sweater?), I'm unsure how many ways I can wear it, and who knows how long I'll keep it in my closet. 

But for now, I really like it. And as long as these kind of purchases aren't an every purchase occurrence , I think they help spice things up a bit....even if it's just wearing it over a white button up. so spicy.
