January edits

One of the things I generally do on the first month 
of the year is go through the pj drawer. 
It's usually where the first closet edits come from.

Just 3 pieces this time around.

Another item was a vintage like argyle cardigan.
I thought about keeping it but then I realised someone 
else could get more wear out of it.
A fellow blogger commented that she really liked it, 
so I hope she really does when she gets it in the mail :)

This little cropped jacket with military buttons did not have a brand.
It was really well made however for the time I had it, 
I wore it about four times.
None of these 4 times I ever felt it looked great.
Last time I washed it the lining began to peel off, it was the 
last sign I needed to let go.

Worn 5 times in 3 years: Glow Fashion white strapless top.
The top was stained, I tried removing it and it did not work
so I chose to part with it.

White button down shirt Nathalie B. stained, gone.

The red Covington shirt was a gift, but it was big and looked odd
the two times I wore it, so off it goes.

Also in the bag, a brown scarf. 
It was a gift I should have parted with a long time ago.

I've been going back to the accessories drawer.
Green crochet earrings and chandler type green an turquoise 
earrings I decided to part with.
I wore them before making a decision.

Oh, also my Russian Doll earrings, they don't feel "right".
Purchased in 2011 for 2.80 USD.
I think I wore these about 4 times, about 0.70 cents per wear.

My gold tone Tous bear like earrings. 
I don't wear them that much
and don't love them when I do.

Blue Color Connection dress, gone :( 
Purchased for 16.99 USD in August 2012.
Worn 9 times, 1.88 USD per wear.
It had very visible snags that I was not comfortable with.

Dresses were also "evaluated".
My Be Bop black white and grey dress originally purchased
in November 2011, for 7.49 USD, was worn 4 times in 3 years,
taking cost per wear to 1.87 USD.
It was big at the top and when I washed it the white top
part began to darken and the white did not look so pristine.

Another dress to go was the grey bubble sleeve from Famosa brand.
It was worn 4 times in 4 years. It was a gift, which is why I think is the reason
I held on to it.
It was clingy, fabric was thin and it had bubble sleeves.

This Kensie Pretty jean dress is from sometime in 2010.
Have no idea what I paid for it but since then I have worn it 9 times.
I am always tugging on it as its a but high waisted.
Its tight in the chest area and recently torn.

Lizsport skirt purchased from dead stock in July 2011 for 5.99 USD
Brand new but seemingly vintage, it was worn 4 times. It's very
hard for me sot style it, took it down to 1.50 USD per wear.
Time to go.

Ferragamo vintage sandals. Bought them on line for
16.28 USD for my grandmother, but they did not 
fit her or me. So, I sold them at the flea market for 20.00 USD

Kors by Michael Kors sandals purchased on sale from 
an original 245.00 USD price tag, down to 67.00 USD.
Worn only 4 times, a 16.75 USD cost per wear.
 They literally killed my feet but my friend Claudia loved
them, so I gave them to her :) 

These tan Michael Kors loafers were a gift.
I never wore them, well maybe twice.
SO off they go.

These black Nine West loafers purchased in 2012 for
25.99 USD. Worn once.
I have to begin to understand that loafers
do not look good on me, I cannot pull them off
no matter how much I love them.

My blue suede Zara were worn to pieces as you can see. 
Worn 34 times, I truly got my money's worth.

23 items for January!

You are so good at editing your closet! It inspires me to do one too - another month or so left in my fall/winter wardrobe, and it seems like there is still so much to wear!

Have just read through all your posts recently - you might be changing jobs?! That's pretty exciting!
