Favourite Three - August 2015Tuesday, September 01, 2015
At the beginning of August I had another rummage in the depths of my wardrobe to find some more long forgotten items. Even though I think I'm doing well in streamlining my clothes, I am constantly being reminded that I have far more than I realise.
I dragged it out of the bottom of a drawer and gave it a careful iron, I noticed a small hole near the bottom band of sequins. So to give it a good send off I decided to wear it as much as possible this month and then pop it in the rag bag (and by that I mean take it to be weighed for cash with a load of other old clothes, which are then either sent to countries in need or recycled).
Who says you can't wear sequins to sit in your garden and read? The slouchy style means this t-shirt is perfect for sunny days, and I'm determined to make the most of the final few warm days of summer (hopefully) coming our way.
These ended up in a recycling shoe bin, but not before I wore them to the beach (I know, odd choice of footwear given the destination) where I promptly ruined them with sand and salt water.
Not wanting to be without a pair of sparkly shoes (if you ignore the two bejeweled pairs of ballet flats I already own) I treated myself to these beauts from Next and they have all the comfort. And, when worn at night they catch the light like a disco ball - that's not to love about that?!
My final August Favourite is my pink Custard Designs leather bag. Since styling it for a wardrobe revisit I haven't used anything else.
My wardrobe has obviously changed since I bought it and now I find it so much easier to co-ordinate. Which is all the proof I need to know I'm justified in hanging onto things that sometimes don't quite fit my wardrobe.
I'm kinda sad that two of my three favourites ended up being recycled, but it's better than having them take up space in my already over-stuffed wardrobe, which is one of the reasons why I started Favourite Three. I want to weed out the items that I no longer like and rediscover old favourites.
What gems do you have lurking in the back of your wardrobe? Do you ever seek out long forgotten items and fall in love with them all over again?
