Cleaning Out My Closet!
Now that we’re all starting fresh due to the New Year, taking inventory of our closets is definitely in order. This past weekend, I decided to purge some items that are no longer welcome in my wardrobe. For a few of the garments I found myself asking, “What was I thinking when I bought this,” or “was this ever in style?”
Those unflattering fashions were donated to my local charity while others were turned in for cold-hard cash at Beacon’s Closet, a NYC-based store where you can sell, trade and donate clothes.
If you decide to clean out your closet, be sure to hang on to these timeless pieces that will take you from season to season!
LBD (these frocks are my weakness…you can never have too many!)
Lightweight scarf (perfect for chilly days or summer nights)
White cotton/Spandex blend t-shirt (long & short sleeve - the most versatile item I own!)
Cashmere cardigan (if not cashmere, any fabric in this sweater style will do!)
What do you do with your unwanted clothes? Do you swap with friends, donate or hold on to them hoping you'll fit into them again or they'll come back in style?
