I tend to buy clothing because I like the color and feel of the fabric. Only later when it's too late do I realize that whatever I bought doesn't fit all that well. The pink sweater in this picture is a perfect example--I love the color, and it's a cotton/silk knit. But it's just a boxy ugly thing on and I found that I'd pull it out, maybe put it on only to take it off and hang it back up again.
