October Closet Editions

Editing this month was not that fructiferous. A blue and yellow print dress I made, the first ever. Finishing was not up to par so I will let this go and try to make a new one. Also the turquoise sequin and straw bag that I had already fixed peeling handles for (see how I fixed it here). The handles and bag were looking too worn out.
Two satin tops: one black Peter Pan collar horseshoe and horse print top from Via Vai and a black striped top from H&M. The horse print one got a 2.75 USD CPW, worn just 8 times since 2012. The one from H&M has been around since about 2011 and worn just about 8 times. Both of these were not great fitting and did not get much wear, so off they go.

A pair of black leather boots made in Spain. They did some traveling but lately they have not gotten much wear. 
Finally a red bracelet a friend gave me years ago, the red cord began to peel. Before letting go I removed the charm and repurposed it ;) You know I am a recycler-hoarder at heart.

6 items this month. How are your closet edits coming along ?

I'm so inspired by your continuing editing of your closet. I'm sorry to see the dress you made go, it looks great on you!

Oh it's a shame that pretty dress is leaving but I hope that you have fun making a replacement one! You're so talented to be able to do that. I was sitting talking with a colleague and admiring her pleated skirt which she had made herself - I felt rather embarrassed to admit I can't even sew a button back on!

Luckily I know a great tailor, haha!

I'm pretty good with my edits right now - I'm finding that some of the pieces from last fall/winter just aren't working for me this year. Time to let 'em go. I think you made great choices on all of these. Good job!
