I'm really trying to shop my closet rather than shop the mall. It's much easier on my check book. If I do shop the mall, I want to stick to accessories such as shoes, fun bags, jewelry, belts and key pieces to add depth and to build around the basics of my weardrobe. Moving helped me come to this realization because I was able to reassess what I had. I ended up giving a few bags of clothes away. (Don't worry Kari, I saved the best for you.) But I realize that if I haven't worn something in over a year, chances are, I probably won't wear it this year. It is best to have items in your closet that you like to look at and that you like to wear. Otherwise, when you wake up in the morning, open your closet, and see clothes collecting dust because you never wear them, then that dreaded though will enter your mind and you will think, "I have nothing to wear!" So clean out those closets ladies, give away some clothes to friends or to those less fortunate, or even try to sell them so you can go out and buy something shiny and new to sit in your closet. Deciding what to wear should be easy.
