April editions

Sometimes editing comes easy.

I did not think about it twice when I decided to let this white skirt by Beiza go.

Same for this Charlotte Russe tube top.

Love By Design black top, it was a gift and looks nice when worn
however I have to pull the sleeves up all the time to keep my bra strap
from showing and when layered I also have to tug on it, so away it goes.

I wore this My Michelle dress a few weeks ago, it is a hand me down.
I got quite a few comments on it as it reminded most of the dress
worn by Julia Roberts is Pretty Woman.
I love the dress, but it's not my size, I had to belt it in 
order to make it look right.
There is a tear in the fabric that someone skilled 
could mend, but that person is not me.

Also let go of a brand new Jones New York Dress, it had been in my closet for about 4 years new with tags - the length was odd, so I decided to pass it on.

Also with tags on a colorful Apostrophe skirt, never worn.
I always wanted to have it tailored but I never did - it's been in the closet for
over 5 years, so it also went in the bag.

In the shoe department my Soho Lab Skechers sneakers left.
I am actually surprised they lived in my closet for that long.
While I had intended to focus on shoes this month, it was not possible.
I have about 6 pairs under the radar right now, that could be sent to the 
give away bag any time soon, but for now it's just 7 items for April.

46 items YTD.

These are always my favorite posts of your. It is fun to see what you are editing out. The Skechers were cute.

Great job on editing your closet - it's never the easiest or most straightforward of tasks is it? Plus, I swear, there's this weird force out there in the universe that makes a piece you've tried never really liked/worn much/didn't fit right out there that suddenly makes said garment look like it was tailor made for you when you try it on in the midst of a good closet weeding out session. I can't even begin to count how many times I've had that happen with clothes over the years. I've grown wise to this phenomenon though, and can be pretty darn ruthless when I edit now.

You're totally right, that's a Pretty Woman dress! This past week I edited a few things out of my closet and actually thought of how skilled you are at editing while I did it. ;)
