I did not dare count them; I couldn't bear it. All I know is I must pare down the number of pairs of shoes I have. Where to begin? This is going to be difficult.
Skirts: Four black, three gray, brown, kahki, white, orange silk, navy, and a print. Probably too many!
Ten (!) white blouses, blue, light purple, black and white stripped.
Slacks: Lightweight wool and every other fabric imaginable: black, gray, kahki, white, a few checked ones.
Jackets. Well you can see for yourself: mostly black or white with a few that are gray, red and print.
Scarves: To be pressed, folded and stored in a drawer.
Love my hats! A couple of more handbags!
LOVE this summer handbag. Bought it three years ago. Will be sad when it wears out!
Vintage handbags. Mother's from the 1950s. Can't bear to part with these.
I haven't even mentioned the jeans, the summer ankle pants, the sweaters that have now been cleaned and stored for the summer. Or the coats, oh my, coats, which are my other weakness (besides handbags).
I am still trying to make decisions on what to keep, what to give away, what to discard entirely. I am thinking I am going to have some "give aways" on this blog, especially handbags. Stay tuned to see what the offerings will be. Similar to thrifting, except the items will be FREE, to be shipped to you anywhere you may be.
And while on the subject of caring for clothes, I want to share with you the best laundry detergent I've EVER tried. I've never had my clothes to look this clean, smell this good. If you haven't, give it a try!
Someway, I've gotten through this day by listening to 70's rock music. Love my Elton John, Al Stewart, Jackson Browne, America, Bread, the Eagles and all those wonderful sounds from the 1970s.
Also tomorrow, I'll share with you my most favorite things in my closet -- my "go to" things I couldn't do without; the things I wear over and over again. It's pretty simple, really. About 15 pieces that are indispensible.
What are your favorite clothing items? What are your weaknesses when shopping? I'd love to hear your stories.
