What if, my wardrobe and I are grand adventuresses?

I had a thought about wardrobe planning the other day, and since Friday was the birthday of Winnie-the-Pooh,* this (probably kooky) thought seemed pretty appropriate – since adventuring is quite a Pooh Bear thing to do.
*or at least one of the birthdays – February 13, 1924 was when the poem “Teddy Bear,” which featured Pooh, was originally published in Punch magazine. The original Winnie-the-Pooh teddy bear was actually given to A.A. Milne’s son on August 21, 1921.


A small (but rather insistent) part of me has been feeling like I should be better at planning my wardrobe. That I should be sketching & swatching, picking out patterns and matching up fabric. But I have a pretty good record of NOT doing that for my self-made wardrobe – and so far things have (mostly) worked out.

And then I had a thought.

What if, my wardrobe and I are grand adventurers?
Or grand adventuresses?

My wardrobe and I are adventuresses.
On a grand adventure. Together.

And what fun would a grand adventure be if you pre-planned it?!
How would you even go about pre-planing an adventure?! Unexpected things always happen on adventures! That’s kind of the point of adventuring!

Is it a little anthropomorphic? Yes. Is this a kooky idea? Probably.
Does it feel a lot more fun than sitting down, plotting my entire wardrobe out, and sticking to a carefully laid plan? To me – hell yes!

“When you see someone putting on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure that an Adventure is going to happen.”
―from Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne

So, here’s to the rest of a grand adventure!
