Wardrobe Planning: The Four Seasons
Since I didn't get much response to yesterday's post about extreme thrifting, I thought I'd show a picture. Perhaps some of you doubt what I got was any good ...
In this picture I am wearing the $10 jeans (INC, in case you were wondering, and I am really happy with how they fit); (the Limited) sateen blazer; and the necklace I won from Blestwithsons.
Now, on to the topic of today's post: where I am relative to each of the four seasons. Sartorially speaking, of course.
- Spring: Probably today, I will be biffing, freshening up my bleaching and painting clothes, making rags, and generally looking for what is too worn to save for next spring. Since I no longer make many buying mistakes, I don't have any items I just don't like. Wow, was that me that just said that?
- Tomorrow is the first official day of summer. Between now and July 4th, I will inventory my extreme hot-weather clothes. I figure I need a new outfit to sweat in every day for at least a week. If I don't have enough, I will hit the clearance racks in July.
- Won't the outfit pictured be great for an autumn evening out with the ladies? I am just beginning to think about what I will need for fall (and shop for it cheap, of course).
- When I packed my winter clothes away in the freezer, I neglected to get a good inventory of my sweaters. After I de-fuzz my new cashmere "long-sleeve t-shirt", I will pull everything out and make a list before packing it all away. If I have enough sweaters, I won't shop for any more. Oh, and I still need to take a few items in for dry-cleaning.
Year-round wardrobe planning; it works for me. Saves time and money. Lots of money.
WFMW ladies, I'd love to have your input on a question I posed a few days ago.
