An odd assortment is what's left after I've selected my favourite clothes from the wardrobe. A few things I just never seem to wear - do you have some of these? I bring them out, try them on, but somehow they always go back on the hanger. I ask myself why? Here are some of the answers I came up with:
I just don't suit cardigans no matter how nice the fabric. Buttoned, unbuttoned, draped around shoulders, whatever way I try to wear a cardigan I look frumpish. So why do I have two, just taking up space?
Acrylic - why do I ever buy acrylic? Because the style was good, the colour was good, BUT it only looked good for a few wearings before it started to 'bobble' and I HATE bobbly fabric! Give/throw it away! Same with top which is a little too big - it was the right colour, a nice drape, a little bit different and a bargain to boot - but I'm not planning to get any bigger - so why did I buy it?
And fleece.. I just don't like the feel of it. But it's so handy/washable/uncrushable/cosy/lightweight I might keep it for now.
Trousers which were a favourite for a long long time - too long - now the fabric is so tired they look good for only about half an hour after I put them on - wipe away a tear and put them in the recycle bin.
A beautiful classic coat - I haven't worn it for years. But it is lovely quality, timeless, warm, hmmm, don't know. I've just realised it's a town coat - I don't wear it now because I live in the country. Also, if I'm really honest it's a little bit neat....
I got rid of twelve items. So much more space
I'm not going to berate myself for my mistakes, or for having too much or not having enough. I'm just going to put back the things I'm really happy in and give away the rest.
