From the top of my head, living in NYC while reading Styleforum opened my eyes to the finer things in life. I don't know if I would have ever escaped from the "designer" area of Macy's or Sak's without the aide of this forum. Like many of you, I went through a rapid accumulation phase and amassed more than enough shoes to keep me shod for a lifetime. I also accumulated a bunch of stuff that I never wear due to fit issues. I finally had the courage to purge a few very serviceable, lightly worn sweaters from J.Crew circa 2003 this past month.
To be honest, I still love clothes, but I have also come to the realization I cannot responsibly afford to buy the "best of the best," nor do I "need" Kiton/Brioni/Cucinelli in my daily life.
