wardrobe and how I don't feel like it actually belongs to me. I have been meaning to do something about it ever since, so today, as the Little Man woke me up extra early ( a special Sunday morning treat... ), I thought I might as well take the bull by the horns and have a clear out..
First things first - everything had to come out of the wardrobe...
|Purchased from Camden Market half a lifetime ago. It's not going anywhere...|
So there was a pile for my sister to try, a pile for the charity shop, a pile of 'good' stuff to sell (maybe), and the keepers...
|All bagged up and ready to go...|
But now it is done. Even as I put all the charity shop stuff and 'for my sister' stuff away in bags I felt better. Hanging all the keepers back in the wardrobe and actually being able to see exactly what I have was good too. I even managed to sort out a bag of stuff to be recycled/customised including a (charity shop buy) fitted denim jacket that is just ripe for being turned into a cute waistcoat!
|Beautiful Indian sari silk patchwork skirt. Too small now but will not go to waste!|
Now I just need to sell the 'good' stuff* and get a couple of key items to update my wardrobe and hopefully get me back on the road to feeling like me again... And who knows - the law of sod being what it is - I might actually start losing the weight I've been trying to get rid of for nearly four years now!
* after doing a bit of research on Ebay I wonder if I might be better off trying to sell the 'good stuff' some other way. If you're a size 14 ish and think you may be interested please leave a comment or tweet me @forestflower23
