Here’s something I am asking myself: if I could start over again, what would be in my ideal wardrobe?
Are there items already in my wardrobe that I would have in my ideal wardrobe? Yes, most definitely. But there are other things getting in the way.
What would I have in my ideal wardrobe?
I’d definitely keep my jeans. And I love my dresses. I’d keep, and have a few more, sequinned tops.
And what would I toss?
Faded denim jacket. Who needs two when they don’t wear one? I keep thinking everyone needs a denim jacket and I’d look cool in one. Never happens. When I put it on, I just look frumpy or bogan. And in faded I look even worse.
Goodbye this skirt from a suit. I loved it but the skirt sits funny as the lining is ripped and frayed and the material is past its best. I will keep the pants and the jacket. (No one wants matchy matchy anymore.)
Donated to find a new home with someone who feels the cold is a heavy, woollen coat. Why declutter this? It shows the decade from whence it came. Dated cut. And really, it is not that warm with a big split up the back which lets in the cold. It also fails on the weight to warmth test.
And this cropped lace top, how did it ever survive even getting into the 90s?
But this sequinned top is definitely a stayer. Luff it!
And this outfit is for keeps. The skirt doesn’t show up too well, but it is pink pleats.
And a bit of leopard skin print on a furry, soft jacket. Mmmm. No stockings were injured in the making of this jacket. Of course, it is too hot even to think about wearing this at the moment.
Illuminating question, this.
So if you could start over, what would be in your ideal wardrobe? And what would you toss?
