If you’ve noticed the side bar I’m in a Love It or List It mode in downsizing my wardrobe. Even I’m surprised by what I’m deciding to let go of.
My purchases so far have been basics, replacements, or “alternatives.” I need to stop delaying buying certain finds that would integrate perfectly with my wardrobe. I have Not-Buying Remorse for a pair of super chic and flattering kitten heels from Saks’ made in Italy outlet line. Even though I talk a lot about avoiding purchasing heels, I see the utility in owning some discrete, comfortable heels for my longer trousers.
On the maintenance side, there's a never-ending list of things for when I get around to it. I have my beloved Kenneth Cole flats due for another trip to the cobbler. I’m opting to delay putting rubber soles on my new flats, since my cobbler is starting to get pretty expensive. My cobbler & dry cleaner are hard to get to on my schedule, so I’m debating whether I should gamble with finding ones closer by. I completed alterations of taking the waist in on my white linen pants and pleated black skirt and shortening the sleeves on my Brooks boy’s non-iron shirt.
On my vague list:
-same flats in other colors
-plain black jeans
-white jeans (pending)
-long “indoor” black coat/cardigan
-black ankle boots
-black fuss free hijabs
-black washable parka/anorak w/ hood for rain
-cheap black/dark grey fleece sweater for home
What are your wardrobe plans?
