Quality NOT Quantity
I just finished cleaning out my closet. I followed the "if you haven't worn it in a year" rule and I also got rid of most of my capri pants (which just make me look shorter than I really am). I realized that I have a lot of the same things and I have a lot of things that I mostly bought just to have. I don't need 4 pairs of cheap black pants. I would rather own 2 pairs of really nice black pants. I also noticed I had some items that looked kind of frumpy. I think I still look relatively young, and I need to show that in my wardrobe. I am also excited about this spring/summer. It will be all about the skirt and dress for me. Since I am doing away with Carpi pants, skirts and casual dresses should be a good alternative. Being off work, I have watched so much What Not To Wear, I felt inspired.
Speaking of closets, Frank has ordered some wood and will be tearing up the carpet in the closet and laying down bamboo. He is also going to build some shelves and cabinets so that will be really nice.
