Everything I have I wear. Everything I have fits. Everything I have, I like.
Win. Win. Win.
Maybe it is the current state of the economy that has people rethinking their spendy-trendy ways. In my web wanderings, I have come across four clothing challenges:
(please note, I do not necessarily recommend the philosophies of any of these blogs, just found their experiments interesting):
- the woman who wore a brown dress every day for a year
- the woman who wore a black dress every day for a year
- the group who challenged each other to wear only 6 separate items for a month - mix and match (excluding sleepwear and workout clothes)
- project 333 choose from 33 items including clothing, accessories, jewelry, outerwear and shoes - for three months
I don't even own 33 items of clothing (not including workout wear and sleep wear).
Now, to be fair - I do not work outside the home. But I do get dressed everyday. Presentably. I think if I worked full time I could get away with a bare bones wardrobe as well.
I tried a little experiment this summer. I wore the exact same thing to church each Sunday. Tan linen short sleeve blouse with a black skirt. No one seemed to notice my lack of variety (or turned me in to What Not to Wear). Yet, anyway.
You may want to consider simplifying and downsizing your closet. You might find it very freeing.
I sure did.
(BTW, I can be packed and ready to go on a trip in a matter of minutes. LOVE THAT!).
What's in your closet?
