The 'I'm Not Sure What I Was Thinking...' Thread
This is a thread for those impulse purchases that seem amazing at the time, but as soon as you get home you wonder to yourself: when am I ever going to wear this? What on earth as I thinking?
My moment of doing that was in the summer sales this year. In Paul Smith, looking for a pair of loafers, I spotted these:
(much, much bolder and brighter in real life, by the way)
They were normally £240 but half that in the sale. They were beautiful and unusual and a real stand out piece. How could I not buy them?
But I must have worn them maybe three times. I'm either terrified I will get them dirty when out or feel too self-conscious, imagining that everyone is humming Elvis' 'Blue Suede Shoes' as I walk buy.
What would you wear with them (assuming you would wear them at all, which I'm sure many wouldn't)? Normally, I team them with slim beige chinos and a chambray oxford/breton style top but not sure I've got it right.
And what are your recent 'I'm not sure what I was thinking...' purchases?
