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.

Good for you for cleaning out! I've been really trying lately to pull things out of the closet when I go to hang up laundry. I'll make a pile and when it gets big enough I take it to the local women's shelter drop-off. That way I get it out of my house before I change my mind and hang the things back up. Whew! I still have a long way to go.

Also -Re: your post below about new items you need. Macy's is having a BIG sale right now. You might check it out. Hope you are feeling well!
