***This week I’m running some of my favorite posts from 2010. I’m in Florida this week and, in between trips to the pool, am busy planning for January.
I really love the idea that Karen Eschebach offered about thinking of your closet as a boutique. I need to do a lot more cleaning out in the coming weeks!***
Here’s the closet of my dreams:
Now wouldn’t this be fun to fill?
Oh to dream…
Several weeks ago, I ran a post about Spring Cleaning with tips by Karen Eschebach, and the idea that really resonated with me was to think of my closet as my own personal boutique. I should love to wear the clothes inside and edit anything that doesn’t fit inside my “boutique”.
Um, mine is currently anything but this happy boutique-y place.
Maybe you can relate that for the last five years, I’ve been in one stage or another of early mommyhood. And the words “boutique” and “spit-up” should not be mixed.
But with my youngest approaching 3, it’s time to look somewhat presentable again. Maybe, I daresay, even cute on occasion.
I’m crossing my fingers.
So I’m cleaning house.
And abiding by 2 cardinal rules:
1) If I haven’t worn it in 3 years, it’s gone.
2) If I don’t love it, it’s gone.
I have no idea why I held onto this shirt since I haven’t touched it since long before Friends went off the air:
I also weeded out my shoes, but I’m too embarrassed to show you what I originally bought. They were too terrible for words.
And there was this whole pile of my Old Navy shirts that have stains galore and really are quite unflattering.
Don’t worry – I kept all the good Old Navy shirts.
So the bag for Goodwill is full. Hello tax write-off!
And a warning to the Running Man (dear, dear one): there may be some shopping involved. I have a lot of empty hangers now.
But I need help! Where are you finding your good stuff lately? Any must-haves out there??
