the Mantra print

Happens to me all the time! I buy clothes and then they sit in the closet (with the tags) for days, weeks and some times even months *sheepishly agreeing*. All this is a result of sheer laziness combined with the wait for the right occasion/mood, as also ignorance of the fact that I own mint-condition clothes. Whatever reason it may be, but I suffer from this new-clothes-in-closet-but-nothing-to-wear syndrome from time to time now. And that is, of course, followed by an enormous guilt which I have of course decided to vent out here!

Anyhow, the good part is that I found a perfect solution/treatment for my condition. What I do is that, I pick out the brand new, never-worn items, put them on hangers and move them to the start of the hanger rack. This acts as a quick reminder for me to pick/try the new clothes whenever I am in a mood to dress up (for office/casual wear). I have been using this method for almost couple of months now and I am noticing the number of clothes declining from this section - which by the way, makes me a happy and proud gal :)

So why I am telling you this 'dukhada' (sob story) of mine? Well, 'cause the 'Mantra print' scarf was one such never-worn item. I bought this scarf on my last visit to homeland (India) while touring Jaipur. I spotted it in one of the souvenir shops in the Jaipur City Palace called Palace Atelier. The exquisite souvenir shop is within the Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II museum and is managed by Princess Diya Kumari (Princess of Jaipur).The enchanting 'mantra' (Indian chant) print, silky feel and the block printing finesse of the scarf was an instant appeal for me. So after I bought the scarf, it has been sitting in the closet for a year almost, until very recently when I was in the mood (read guilt) to pair it for a spring-appropriate clothing. For once, I should thank this extended-winter weather (that we are having for quite some time now), 'cause my mantra-print scarf finally found it's way out of the closet! 

So there you go peoples, I am guilty of having clothes in the closet with the tags on them. Does it happen to you too? What are the tricks you engage to come out of this syndrome? Do share your feedback in the comments below, on Facebook or Twitter.
