Now that I think about it, I do have a couple of items that aren't ideal for my body. I have a geometric pattern sweater with some orange and yellow color blocks that don't suit me. The shape isn't ideal for me, either. But most of the colors in it do look good and the shape isn't awful on me, just not ideal. It's fun and interesting--and I get a lot of compliments on it.
Then there was the summer hat search. Ever try to find a hat to keep the sun off your face and coordinate with business clothes? That's a tall order! Most ladies' hats are made for either the beach or an over-the-top wedding. I finally found a terrific hat--but the color doesn't look very good on me. It can't safely be lightened (I asked the manufacturer), but I've decided to keep in anyway--partly because the shape and fabric look good on. Besides, it's high quality and has great little extras (a wind strap and a pocket in the crown).
So I have some fun things and practical things that aren't ideal and can't be altered or dyed. I'm glad I have them, but I wouldn't want a closet full of clothes that are interesting or practical, but unflattering. There's a whole wide world of interesting clothes out there, and if something can't be altered, doesn't look good on or doesn't go with anything I have, I'll leave it for someone else.
