May's Closet Edits

It's funny how I hunted down "the perfect black turtleneck" 
and actually found it at Zara - this was quite a few years back.
It quickly became my go to item when packing for cooler weather.
It went with me to New York, D.C. and on several trips to Europe...
However now it's no longer black and I decided to part with it.

My number 2 Talbot jeans, it's funny how these are size 2.
I am not so they were always a tid tight, high waisted and the
wash was not my favorite.

A pair of grey trousers from A.Byer, these were actually a 
hand me down from a friend. 
I wore them at least a dozen times on the blog and there is
not one time I can say I loved how they look, so off they go.

My brown Dockers shorts also left.
Purchased 2 years ago and worn about 10 times.
They were faded, the length was different on each leg
and I was not happy with how they fit me.

My black BCBG wedges, were actually hand me downs from my mom.
I never wore them and when I did I was not fully convinced they looked well.

My Xhilaration jean bag.
I have had this bag for ages, really.
But from being kept in a close the jean fabric acquired a smell that
no matter how much Lysol I have sprayed on it and how many
times I have laid it out on the sun, it will still not go away.
In addition to that it was never comfortable to hold and
I almost never wore it because I did not know what to pair it with.

Also pjs from Victorias Secret.

Finally my black and white sunglasses.
I've had these for 8 years, they've been
to almost every island in the Caribbean
as it's the pair of sunnies I got when I started
my job as an area manager... however they
started falling apart.

 8 items, one month.
How are your closet edits coming along ?

It's just about time for me to give the ol' closet another edit on this end, too. I've becoming quite selective with what I'll buy (and keep in the moment) in recent years (I have to super love it - at least in theory, if it's online, as you never quite now in such cases until you try it on), so my edits rarely fill big bags anymore, but there's always a piece or two that's ready to go to a new home and it's high time I sent such items on their way. :)
