Culling My Wardrobe
I’ve decided I have a new goal this year, actually I think it’s more of a short term goal, like in the next month or so. My goal? I want to cull my wardrobe and start again.
You may remember me writing about how I’m a fashion cheapskate and how I just can’t fathom spending lots on clothes, but I’ve finally come to my senses people (yeah, I know, you were right) that buying quality and buying pieces that I can mix and match is much more effective.
Just to recap for those who are new, I’ve always been one to jump at the cheapies. If I see something that tickles my fancy, something that looks cool and it’s affordable, I snap it up. But the problem I’ve been finding (I feel stupid saying this) is that they’re just not lasting AND I get sick of them too quickly because I’m not buying lasting fashion.
So thank you to all of those who have shed their wisdom on me in the past. I did take it in I promise, I was just a little stubborn. The price factor still makes me nervous, but I can see now the whole cliché of ‘you get what you pay for’. One comment that someone made or which I read that has always stuck in my mind is that if you work out how much an item costs and then how much wear you get out of it, it works out in the end.
So with this epiphany I’ve had, I’d like to share with you some of the styles of clothing I’ve got my eyes on.
A nice casual tank to team with a pair of pants for the day (when it’s cooler) or at night.
Petal Back Tank from Witchery
This outfit for a work meeting or date night
Sacha Drake Pant, Wish Top, Adorne Earings, Billini Shoes, Maiden Voyage Wallet from Birdsnest
This outfit for a day at work, running errands or coffee with friends
Boheme Dress in Vine from Bohemian Traders
Mary Printed Culottes from Forever New
Sylvia Mono Contrast Pants from Forever New
Harriet Split Longline T-Shirt from Forever New
Sleeveless Shirt Dress from Sportsgirl (I’d mix and match my accessories with this one)
I still have to get a hang of proper mixing and matching and which staple items I should have in my wardrobe, but I guess this is a start!
