So this week I moved into the master bedroom (the only perk of losing my housemate Erin to the big smoke) and inherited a ginormous wardrobe. The wardrobe changeover was the perfect opportunity to take stock for my Intervention.
A few surprising discoveries; I have two times more tops than bottoms and I have clothing in every size from 8 to 14 (this shouldn’t really be a surprise…). Both of these things might make my ‘buy nothing new for a year’ project somewhat difficult. But anyway, here’s what I found:
61 tops – shirts, singlets, tanks etc
29 jackets – blazers, coats, cardigans
36 bottoms – skirts, shorts, jeans, trousers
This is not including gym wear, basic black singlet tops, underwear, pajamas and a stack of old t shirts I have on hand should I ever need to paint a house (seems perfectly reasonable… right?!).
LOVE the handbag shelf.
So, I think with a few strategic ‘staple’ purchases I can definitely go a year without buying new clothes (did I just type that?!). Scary. But I can do it… right?!
And so, Wearing My Wardobe 2013 is born. Rules to come. Wish me luck!
