vintage dress (similar)///cake clutch (similar)///Naughty Monkey heels (similar with an ankle strap, these are very modern, similar, holy cow there's a lot of cute floral shoes right now)
I have a lot of stuff. Clothing stuff. Clothing that needs to be pared down in preparation for our move to Anchorage. I have no idea how to do this.
OK, that makes me sound dense. I know how, and I donate a good amount of stuff on a regular basis. But how do you go even deeper? Get your closet down to just pieces you love? Or what if you love something (like the blue dress above) but don't see yourself reaching for it very often?
I just read something recently (I wish I could remember where) that said for casual, everyday clothing you should expect to wear the item at least as many times as the dollar amount spent.
I'm making myself sound like an idiot again. I knew that I should be looking at more investment pieces but I never had a formula for it. I like math. I like hard numbers. I like following formulas. They make me feel all science-y and . . . stuff.
So I'm thinking maybe I should get rid of things that I don't expect to get a return on my investment from. It should be very interesting going through my closet again using this criteria to get rid of things. I'll let you know how it goes.
