Yikes! In reality, I have so many clothes that all of my racks and closets are packed. I am running out of room to store almost everything.
Conclusion: I have enough clothes.
So I'm going to shop my own closet this spring. Stick around as I post weekly about shopping my own closet. Or join me! Shop your own closet this spring and let me know how you're doing!
I predict more of this in my future
The game plan:
Mend and alter a few things I've had sitting around (a blouse and two dresses come to mind at the moment).
I also need to do some spot cleaning on a few items. (I've got a tutorial planned to share with you).
And a small pile to go to the dry cleaners.
And now that I've said all that I will throw in one caveat. I, in fact, have 2 holes in my current wardrobe that I will try and fill this spring. Two items on the shopping list only:
- a cute pair of navy or black high waisted sailor shorts. I've always wanted a pair and every summer I wish I had remembered and bought some when I had cash.
- navy flats. mine died when I went to Israel and I haven't replaced them since.
These will be the only two things I am allowed to buy (except socks and underwear). And only if I find the right ones.
I think this is going to be a tough challenge for me. I've already decided in the last two minutes that "this will be easy" then immediately after thought "no, this is going to be hard", as I thought about a cute pair of patterned flats I saw at Joe Fresh a week and a half ago....no, they weren't navy...damn.
