Oh this really makes me want to go shopping

I said other. I always buy clothes then put them away with the tags still on. I am a stay at home mom so I hardly leave my pajamas. About every 6 months, I will find brand new clothes and wonder why I even bought them.

I bought a Chanel purse and wore it the same day to the shopping mall.

It depends on the item. I bought a stunning dress from CUE in November and didn't wear it until christmas. But I've been wearing my new boots non-stop since I bought them, only three days ago.

When I see something I like I buy it even if I don't have the opportunity to wear it right away. I have a DVF dress that has been in my closet for 2 years with the tags still attached.

Depends...I recently bought a really cute top, but it snowed, so I can't wear it until it warms up...stupid winter!

People (apart from my family who does the same) think I'm crazy but I *always* wash new clothes before I first wear them, unless the item won't really touch my skin (like a jumper or a cardigan). I hate thinking of all the sweaty women who've tried on a top before me, or the chemicals sprayed on the clothes to keep them wrinkle-free, and I don't want that on my skin. So, it depends on when I can toss the new purchase in the laundry; but most of the time I put it in the washing machine in the evening so I can wear it the next day. :P

Oh, I did find a gorgeous lilac goddess dress I can't wear until it warms up, but I am attending a june wedding it would be perfect at. But yes, I did put it on again (twice) and wear it around the house. And it's short so I should see if I can get away with it and jeans :)

It depends. Sometimes I'll find a pretty dress on sale, and it's not good weather for wearing a dress, or it's too fancy for anything I have planned soon.. So I wait. If I buy something casual, I may wear it the next day. Is that Magdalena in the picture for this article?

Like Genesisrocks, for me, it depends on the weather. I've been buying spring clothes for over a month now but haven't really had a chance to wear a lot of them.

Depends on the weather. Does it seem like stores start stocking spring clothing when its February?

The only thing I wait to wear are swimsuits/resort stuff. And even then, I walk around the house sometimes just to "try it out"

If I've bought just one thing, usually right away. If I've bought a few things then I will spread out the first wears over a week or so. I don't normally buy "occasion" clothes.

Depends. If it's not for a special occasion, usually soon after I brought them. I brought a gorgeous top yesterday that I'm dying to wear tonight. I don't think I'll get to though because the weather in upstate NY is not cooperating.
