I like to keep track of what I get rid of.
Maybe it's odd but there are some of reasons behind it:
1. Sometimes I have doubts if I have given something away.
This way I know if it's just MIA in my closet or if I gave it away.
2. I get edit remorse, which is why I take pictures of
flaws the garment had and which is also why I write why it
was given away.
That way, there is no space for remorse.
For example, this pair of shoes from Bershka (Zara's little sister).
I bought them about 4 years ago, never used them much.
They were purchased on a trip to Valencia, Spain - I love
them but they have deteriorated rather quickly.
They have been taken to the cobbler twice and
they just do not look good anymore.
I have another pair of shoes leaving, these are over ten years old.
They are truly vintage now, its a pair of Skechers - for which I use to work for.
These have walked the world with me, but just do not fit my life style anymore.
I now prefer less bulkier walking shoes, however they are as comfortable
as the first day I got them :) so I am passing them on.
Then there's my leather sandals purchased in Barcelona a few years ago.
I have only worn them twice on the blog. I love them but they are too big.
I took them to the cobbler with hopes of having the back tightened
and it did not work.
However I passed them on to a friend who will wear them to death.
A suit, a ten year old Point Zero grey suit.
I took it with me to a trip recently only to realize in the
worst way possible that it was time to let go.
The fabric does not look well, there is a tiny stain on the pants,
the blazer seems a bit big and a shoulder pad is
missing (it's inside the jacket).
Also the trousers are really low cut.
A houndstooth top from Divided by H&M.
Fabric is really thin and it sticks to the skin which makes me look bulkier
and there is a tiny hole in the front of this top.
A bright green top by Polo Jeans Co.
It's a little tight, too low cut and I just don't wear it enough -
and when I do, I am not comfortable in it.
A fuchsia cardigan by Fever.
It's not worn enough and I have never really been able to style it
to its utmost potential.
Hopefully somebody else will.
Lu by Lolita grey and blue striped shirt.
It was a birthday gift from many years ago, I have worn it 3 times in 3 years.
Too long for my frame, the boatneck stretches throughout the day.
I am never quite comfortable in it, so off it goes.
My Zara black pullover, it was a gift too.
Worn 7 times on the blog, the last time I found a tiny hole in the front of it.
Also, the color was not that black anymore.
Red Volar top was too a gift.
The top was not my style but I still tried it, did not love it as
I tugged on it all day even though I was wearing a tank top underneath.
It's just not me.
Nine West flip flops worn to death - or at least over 23 times.
This was probably my most expensive pair of flip flops ever,
I paid about 20.00 USD
for them which for me is too much for flip flops, they were worth every penny.
I am letting them go because I keep grabbing them and they look really bad.
Also taking a hike is this black beaded necklace.
I realize that I have better looking black necklaces and it's time I use them.
So, that's it - my July edits add up to 80 items so far year to date...
