I'm going to say it-- I repeat clothes.

I also have this habit of hanging whatever blazer/jacket/robe I most recently removed on any of the knobs of my closet, so that might be the cause. If I see it immediately again within the next few days, it's easier for me to think of clothes that go with it. The inverse reaction to of out-of-sight-out-of-mind.

 Or, I may also like too much the idea of getting dressed easily in clothes I already own. After all, isn't that why we buy things anyway? For use and reuse.

And yes, this suede robe has been used and reused many times since I first purchased it. So many times that our help came across it and deduced from its faint aroma that it needed to be washed.

So she (hand)washed it without asking for my permission, and I almost fainted when I saw it laying to dry. But it turns out, you can wash suede. With very mild detergent and fabric softener, and with utmost caution. (Bless my trusted Ate Gigi for just knowing!) I didn't believe it primarily, even with a quick Google search result and my freshly laundered suede robe undamaged in my hands. Placebo effect, I guess. I ran a coat brush through it at work the same day, and it's been soft as new.

As you can see, it's back on my rotation.
