I'm looking at my old clothes -- and all I can think of is: what the heck was I thinking????
Many of them are not bad, but they are not terribly professional and they're cheap. Cheap to buy, cheap to wash, cheaply made. I counted 30 shirts and blouses alone -- and these are just my cold weather clothes! Now, I know that there are plenty of people with more, but this is a small closet.
So I've come to a decision. For my final weight -- whatever that ends up being and whenever that ends up happening -- I just want the minimum. Not just one outfit, of course, but not this festival of every sleeve length and every conceivable neckline in a variety of colors. I like color and neckline choices, to be sure, but I'm thinking that it will be better to have fewer pieces but better ones. Things I have to take care of. Things that require a little time and attention.
Then again, I don't exist to enrich my local dry cleaner. :)
I'll find a happy medium I'm sure.
