What are your wardrobe improvement goals for 2007?

That's a great question Rebecca!!! I'm going to think about it this evening, and I'll definitely get back to you.

I would like to have no more clothing than I really wear. Have been steadily working toward this but haven't been able to do the One Fell Swoop kind of edit. I'm willing to let the Too Smalls I've saved linger in another closet. I would like to be able to easily remember every item I own.

I would like to remember functionality and focus on clothes as for DO-ing rather than for BE-ing (some alter identity that I take off a hanger). I will carry on with removing high heels from my closet and refraining from buying any more. I crave mobility and regularly walk miles on pavement. I want to be sure to be able to move in my clothes.

I will continue to refrain from buying and wearing anything that takes the focus away from my face or that I think will express who I am better than I can say it myself. (this last part perhaps from Don Aslett)

I will continue to dress modestly and with dignity.

My big wardrobe goal is to finally rid my wardrobe of 'armour', i.e. the tomboyish clothes I wore to fit into male-dominated workplaces.

I used to wear boyish work clothes all week, then spend my evenings poring over gorgeous girly stuff in magazines. When I got a chance to dress like a girl, I'd go wild... I used to have closets and closets of crazy vintage dresses. I guess you could say my femininity was literally in the closet!

I've been hanging onto it all for the last year in the hope that my health would magically sort itself out and I'd go straight back to being a high-flying IT consultant. Now my health's getting better and I'd rather be The Bargain Queen, skirts and all ;)

Structured shoulders and right-length pants! Both of these issues came up at the 'style school' session I went to in November. With my sloped shoulders I need to add some structure and width to the upper half. And being as tall as I am, my pants are often just a bit too short.

BTW, I wore the gala dress again last night to a NYE party. I tramped it up a little with a black knit shrug, tights, clunky shoes, and a very sparkly necklace. Photo to come.

Hi Rebecca,

I looked back at what I did right in 06. I spent money on classic investment pieces (two coats, two wrap dresses) that will stay in my wardrobe for years and are "go to" items. I tried new things out of my fashion comfort zone.

After some reflection in 2007 I'd like to:
-- continue to cull what doesn't fit (if it's too big I don't plan to grow back into it!) including coats
-- add some red: a red cami, and scour the retail world for the perfect red shoes/bag
-- add more swim suits
-- more inexpensive tees too

I LOVE all of your goals! What fun. I'm so glad I thought to post that question!

Vildy ~ I knew you were a genius. I read Don Aslett, too.

BQ ~ I'm so glad your health is improving! (I even remember to pray for you occasionally:)

Beth ~ I am still interested in hearing more about the style school. Perhaps a guest post or you could post something on your blog and I could link to it? No pressure, though, I know you're busy. Perhaps that's an understatement.

Wendy ~ well said!

Thanks for participating!
