Another thing I'll be starting on doing is to really take a look at the clothes that I've purchased eons ago but have never touched... and try to wear them. Or else, I have to give them away. Ack! says the hoarder in my mind. Okay, fine. Let's do this.
So I spent an hour* combing through my clothes rack a few days ago. I wasn't as successful taking out clothes** as I was in finding I still have a lot of pieces yet to be worn, like this blazer! Such a waste to give away something I've never worn, reasoned out the hoarder.
I bought it around two or three years ago in Hong Kong and didn't know what to do with it when I got back home. Why'd I get this thing again? The hoarder chided, you'll need it. Just keep it. So I did. I decided to pair it with an even older blouse my mom had kept and passed on to me. Apparently, hoarding is hereditary ;p
I like the subtlety of this sequined tank -- it has enough bling but it's in a neutral color to keep it quiet in the background, much like I am at social gatherings nowadays. My clothes aren't the only things getting old! ;)
Some details: gathers at the waist, button detail, false pockets.
Oh, and the striped lining!
Here's to more treasure-digging in my black hole of a closet! Hahaha! Plenty to wear!!!
Tank top from Temt. Blazer from Maple. Uniqlo pants. Patent pumps from Hong Kong.
* Yes, only an hour. But I'd like to make this closet-cleaning habit more regular, say... weekly? I'm aiming for something realistic! Hehe.
** I managed to set aside six tops and dresses, which is not a significant impact, but it's a start!
*** Eating twice as much as the guys, going to the gym -- which, by the way, lasted only a month haha...
