I have duplicates of only a few items in my closet (these Seychelles Ampersand heels come to mind); I’ve learned that if I really love something and wear it to death, I might need a backup. I’m pretty clumsy and have spilled something on just about everything I’ve ever come into contact with, and have been known to scuff the heck out of the toes of my shoes. It’s necessary – the duplicates part, not the ruining of things – and since I’m a discerning shopper, I’ve never regretted it. After a few years of owning and frequently wearing these shorts, I wore the side zipper down to the point where it needed to be replaced – and though that was easily fixed, I decided to go ahead and purchase another pair, just in case I destroy them beyond repair. It’s difficult to find shorts that fit me and have a medium length inseam, and the scalloped hem is the icing on the cake. I think I’m pretty easy to peg, style wise – a baby doll or trapeze silhouette, bows and lace galore, boyfriend jeans and blazers, leather jackets and over the knee socks, scalloped hems. But hey, I know what I like.
