Unpacking shoes and hair styling things is like unpacking a paean to the person I obviously wish I was. :p

Nearly unworn heels, bought in a fit of I don’t even know what, except the joy of having discovered heels that were wide enough for my feet. A couple pair have reasonably low heels; I remember thinking they might be walkable-in. And maybe they are, if I was someone else who wore clothes that one wears heels with. And walked less than an average of 5 miles a day. And. And. And.

A couple years ago I discovered pincurls. Sometime not long after that I found some “don’t have to sleep in them just blowdry your hair in them ‘cold’ curlers” which of course don’t work and I’ve never, nor is there much chance that I will, slept in them or indeed even manage to first mousse my hair before doing the curl-and-dry factor (which would increase its likelihood of success by a significant margin). A curling iron which also has very little effect on my hair (they never have unless my hair was permed first). An improbable number of hair ties, ribbons, barrettes, headbands and other stuff, when what I use is bobby pins and ponytail holders.

I actually find this really depressing.

I hear you.

It's getting on time for me to do a closet purge myself, but I always feel the twinge about the money--"That cost $50! That cost $120! You're just gonna get rid of it!?"

Well, yeah. I don't get the money back if I keep it in my closet, and I need space more than I need the fantasy that someday I will want to cosplay as as the goddess Athena or wear four-inch blue velvet wedge sandals.

But it still twinges. I probably need to go put on an episode of Hoarders to get in the mood.

I've gotten past the money twinge thing, but not the "Someday I will be fabulous, honestly," thing. I don't know why I think someday I'll be fabulous as a matter of course. I've never been regularly fabulous in my life.
