cost per wear

Knocking down the cost per wear on two of my most expensive items of recent weeks by overbearing them. Lily Melrose logic! Cost per wear is when you basically take the price of the item and then divide it by the amount of times you wear it. It's silly but it's my justification whenever I buy things I know I shouldn't that are quite expensive. For example my "Game of Thrones Coat", when I bought it it was the most expensive thing I'd ever purchased with my own money. But I've worn it every winter for about three years now so I feel okay with it now! Justifications...

  1. You've taught me so much about cost per wear. It's kind of my rule now whenever I go shopping. Aha! Love the look btw, the jumper looks even better with the scarf! x
