Each Wednesday I go through my wardrobe and try again to make something work for me that is rarely if ever worn.
If I can't make the item work for me... out it goes. I have a shopping bag in my closet to which I add those things that never seem quite right. The shopping bag goes to the local Women's Shelter this time. (I rotate donations to a different charity each time.) If you decide to follow my example in paring down your closet to only what you really wear, please remember that underwear, shoes and jewelry as well as bags can make a world of difference to a woman who is starting over after an abusive relationship. She needs clothes for interviews and for work later so white blouses and dark slacks or skirts are always needed.
Lets start with this white blouse. I bought it at the big Dillard's haul earlier this spring. I have never worn it because it has a ruffle with a facing that never stays were it should. It was such a low clearance price I couldn't resist, but buying something you never wear is not a good deal.
Then there are those navy slacks I bought at Talbot's a couple of years ago. One leg is a bit tighter than the other in the calf so I always feel lopsided when I wear them. Someone with normal calves would never notice this but my calves are ample.
These sling back shoes have rarely seen the light of day but they worked with this look today.
I will keep the blouse for now but the shoes and the pants are on their way out.
