I give a lot of thought to closet editing.
Maybe more than I should.
One of the things I take into consideration before giving a garment away
is how many times I have worn it.
Thanks to the blog, I can now track that.
For example, this shirt from Charlotte Russe, which I purchased on line and
which I gave away last month.
I remember when I bough it, I loved the pattern and also the
tassel detail on the sleeves and on the bottom.
I bought it for about 25.00 USD plus shipping.
This was about 4 or 5 years ago...
Worn over the last 3 years only 4 times,
however I never loved how it looked.

It was only last month when I wore it last that I stopped
to look back at how it had been worn.
It was not easy to wear as I found it difficult to combine
with any other color than brown or blue jeans.
The elastic band was placed in the middle - but their middle was not
my middle, so it just looked off and I usually tugged on it all day long.
A garment that needs constant adjusting is
not something you want in your closet.
Hopefully the lesson I learned here is that nothing with an elastic in the middle
will look flattering on me, also I need to double think clothes purchases on line.
What are your do's and don'ts when it comes to buying clothes ?
Are there any particular items you stay away from ?
