It’s time for me to purge my closet again. This time because I have a lot of clothes that I just don’t wear anymore due to several factors, my style has changed and you can guess the other. I have a more casual, relaxed way of dressing. I have business attire and “church clothes”, I never was anywhere near First Lady status. I’m a classy, stylish woman, my taste has just changed a bit. With that, I’m gonna gather my clothing and look for a consignment shop for plus size women. I have some very nice pieces, a suede suit, several pants suits, after five wear and much more. I just don’t wear them anymore and some are too little. Okay I got that out. I have several pairs of shoes that I want to sell as well.
My rule is if I haven’t worn it in two years, it has to go. These items are way past that time, I just didn’t want to get rid of them because I wanted to hold on to a certain time in my life and I paid good money for some of the items. One outfit I wore in a fashion show only, never got a chance to wear it out.
Here’s part of my dilemma, I would actually prefer donating the clothing, but would like to raise a little money from some of the items. I know someone would benefit from the suits for job interviews, church or whatever they need them for, but I have to admit I spent a pretty penny on some of the clothing. I may do just a few items consignment and find a group where I can donate clothing for women in a shelter or a place like that. I’ll be researching this soon, as I want to have the clothing donated before spring. The pictures really don’t do the outfits justice, especially the off white one, it’s an after five, has sparkles all on the top. These are just three of the outfits that I plan to giveaway or put on consignment.
Working from home has cause me to reinvent myself. I have reinvented my style, well sort of. It has to be functional and comfortable at the same time. You won’t see me in moo moo’s, or all polyester pieces. I’m at the point where I don’t care for wearing jeans anymore. I have three pair that I love and I’ll keep them. I don’t wear 4 inch heels anymore, that’s as high as I would go. I can’t walk in them and I’m not risking twisting my ankles any more for the sake of keeping up with my younger counterparts. I’ll let you all have them. I will continue to like them and put them in my Pinterest board, Lover of Shoes.
So now it’s off to find a consignment shop in my area for some of the higher priced pieces and I’ll donate the work and play pieces. I think that’s a nice balance. How often do you all clean out your closets and do you donate, sell or do consignment?
