I moved my "do not wear" items into the hard to reach corners of my closet (which is half of my closet…). I'm questioning how much I should keep right now, because almost everything is getting too big on me. History would tell me that in about 6-12 months, it will fit me again, and do I really want to buy new clothes when that happens? And then what about the clothing in my main capsule that doesn’t fit me so well? For example, my tan jacket that doesn’t have a good alternative.
I've drafted a 333 wardrobe, and I'll list that tomorrow with a picture. I made a pivot table, guys. Get excited.
I read part of the remixable wardrobe series on Putting Me Together, and decided to try belting a baggy but cute patterned shirt on Monday. It.. looked weird.
I've identified one essential piece that I can get rid of: my black work skirt. I got doggie paw prints all over it last week (WORTH IT), and switched temporarily to my casual black cotton skirt. I don't think anyone noticed, and I felt more comfortable. Cotton skirts all the way!
I also identified two holes in my wardrobe.
1) “Picnic on the grass” attire. I intend to do plenty of cross-legged sitting in the near future. Pants are too hot, my shorts are for hiking, my dresses are too short. I could use one of the following: a pair of "nice" shorts, a breezy maxi skirt, or breathable shorts to wear under dresses that don’t make me feel gross and sweaty which defeats the purpose of wearing a light summer dress in the first place. Or I could get over it and wear my ugly shorts.
2) Camisoles that aren’t themselves inappropriate.
