A version of this essay appeared on 2nd Opinion.
I write this while wearing my boyfriend's white Zara shirt. I decided to put the white Topman v-neck in the laundry basket because I felt it looked, well, dated. It also felt less structured than before. After only three years and wearing it less than twenty times, I am already thinking of disposing that piece of clothing, and wondering what to buy next. Uniqlo, perhaps. Maybe H&M.
See what I did there?
