It all started for my search for the pefect pair of leggings, and then searched for the perfect outfit and turned into a epiphany on clothes and how I will think about them forever.
My new truth. I will not own any piece of clothing that doesn’t fit me perfectly and look fabulous on me.
This is difficult for me, as I have been caught in a trap of keeping clothes that I loved on the hanger in the store, that never fit right. I also have an array of sizes. I have my skinny clothes, my bigger clothes and my in between. All shapes and sizes.
Over the years I have collected a massive amount of clothing. Trendy pieces, Classic pieces and pieces. Clothing I bought on sale because it was a great deal.
I went through my closet and got rid of 3 large garbage bags full of clothes. It was difficult at first. I tried everything on and got rid of anything that I could not fit into today.
What a blessing to pass along clothes that didn’t fit me but, others can wear right now today. What a waste to have it just hang in my closet.
I read a few great blog posts on womens clothing but, this one by Kelly at redefined mom, is by far the best. It was like she was inside my head this week and wrote about it so beautifully.
I cannot wait to watch this documentary. Fabulous Fashionistas. Kelly references it in her blog article.
I still have to go through my coats, rest of my shoes and my drawers…but I am getting there one step at a time. I will save so much money by simplifying and streamlining my clothes.
Most important- I will look and feel fabulous. I will be ready to conquer the world even on days when I may not feel like conquering anything. I will be wearing the perfect outfit.
I will keep you posted on how it goes. Thoughts?
