I've spent this rainy day re-reading my own posts under this heading and sorting out, or 'curating' my wardrobe.
There are quite a lot of posts under Simply Stylish. See especially Aug and Oct 2014 if you are also planning a wardrobe sort.
I took my own advice and looked at my wardrobe and asked myself how I feel looking at what is there. Because it has worked so well for me over a few years now I was a little surprised at how many negative feelings came up...
There is the nice dress I wore to Barry's funeral. Will I really ever want to wear it again?
I feel almost taunted by the unworn summer clothes (we have really had no summer to speak of!)
I feel a bit guilty at the number of things I had meant to get altered and never got around to.
I feel enbarassed likewise that there are several things there which are overdue a dry clean.
I feel so frustrated that I cannot buy exact replacements of my real favourites which are wearing out.
And I have to confess there are many things hanging there which I have loved and which have served me well but which I have to accept are past their best :-(
And I may just have crossed the line between subtle and drab!
Work to do, and to enjoy.
Not waving but drowning?
I like the birds shadows on the bed!
Favourite necklace (Topshop) and scarf (Sahara).
Will you join me in an October revamp?
