I love my wardrobe. After all, the items have all come from my effort and (most importantly) my purse. My shoe collection holds exactly what I need, and my clothes hit the perfect spot between wacky and sane (for me, that is!). However, I have begun to aspire for something more that a wardrobe that is “good”. I want a wardrobe where every item makes me feel “wow” inside. Not items that need to be in-your-face, but items that express subtlety and fashion-intelligence with every swing of a skirt or step of a heel. I will post my shoes on here soon, as I think my collection is beginning to lean towards this.
Clothes, however, are a different story. I am feeling fed up, in a way that has been building for the past few months. I have draws full of tops that simply arent’ all that great. Now, there is nothing wrong with having the basics – plenty of coloured t-shirts, strappy tops and jumpers, but all by other tops have hit boring. There is really nothing there that stands out – and when I think about it, all I own that really expresses me is my dresses.
Therefore, I feel like setting myself a challenge. A challenge to clear out my clothes draws of all the old and downright boring trash that I haven’t been able to bring myself to get rid of. I will post the best finds (because we all know how items you are sure you have never owned turn up in your drawers during a clean-out!), and all the dregs will either head in eBay’s direction, or to the charity shop, where someone else will have the imagination necessary to do them Justice.
I am, you see, aiming for a work style that isn’t just quirky – like this girl. I want fantastic suits, individual shirts and more than a little flare. I also want some designer items, and more accessories. A it is I have 2 full size handbags (I need to upgrade!), a few boring belts, and not much else.
From here on in, my wardrobe gets a conscious fashion makeover.
