clothes, clothes, clothes

October 1st, 2008 at 02:57 am

So, yesterday I sorted through all of my clothes. I took out and repacked the ones I had in storage tubs (and added more to the tubs... as you do...but only took out one or two things from last summer... again, as you do...)

I only left out the clothes I wear every day (shorts, jeans, t-shirts, singlets, cardigans, etc) and left my dresses and jackets hanging up. All the clothes I haven't worn for awhile, or figured I probably WOULDN'T wear for awhile, I put away.
And guess what?

I have hardly any clothes. HAHA.


Ok, Ok, so I do have CLOTHES. But they're starting to get a little ratty. I did 'invest' in some singlets that will get me through summer, but I know that I do really need some 'nicer' shirts that are short sleeved, button up types for going out at night (to art exhibitions, nice dinners, fancy places etc), and some skirts to go with them. I am a very jeans-and-tshirts girl, so it's hard to get dressed up in frilly blouses, pretty skirts and structured jackets, when you know you're most comfortable in a band shirt, skinny jeans and ballet flats.


so I think I am going to start a 'clothes' fund. I think $250 should do it, and I might try and get it all out of the way in one go... like a shopping spree - only it's one that I've saved for lol.

so, my question is, what are everyone's 'must have' clothing items? What are your 'fail-safe' options, the couple of pieces of clothing that you always have ready if nothing else 'feels right'? what do you always look for in clothing, and what's the most you've spent on an item?
(if you're into that sort of thing - I'm not into fashion 100%, but I like to look nice, and I enjoy clothes, not brand names, just clothes)

    Funny you should bring this up. The last week or so just about every top I've put on for work has made me go UGH! It's seriously making me think about spending some real money to update my wardrobe. I've bought some cheapo standins from Walmart or Ross, but am starting to think I need to get a few more high-end high-quality pieces.

    I'm SO not a fashion person. If it's comfy, pretty, not too hot (very warm blooded) has no need for dry cleaning and covers my gut - I'm generally happy with it.

    The trouble is just parting with the money necessary.

    I've actually been thinking I need a major makeover - hair and clothes. I just really don't want to spend the money for it. My car, house and cruise funds are slow going as it is -- I hate to spend money that could be going to them.

    It is really comfty and very classy looking in my opinion. With the black long coat, you can wear your nice summer tops with black/dark blue jeans and add a nice scarf around your neck (White will be good) with some nice shoes. Voila! You got a nice outfit! With this kind of coat or sweater,you can match it up with practically anything and it looks nice. Whenever I can't find a sweater to warm me up with my outfit, I take one that is similair to the black one (Mine looks more casual and it's grey) and I wear with it. Still looks good and doesn't ruin my outfit look.

    sorry I'm overexcited. I'm really tired and I've been looking at the e-fashion site for winter clothes.

    lol it's ok - thanks for the link i will check it out. i already have a cardi that's similar to one like that but a bit shorter - i would probably like another as a backup so i might look into it - also i need to invest in a longer, structured jacket as well...
