An Aide for Closet Purging...

Happy Hump Day my loves!

I hope every one's day is going great thus far. 

As I stated yesterday's post, I'm doing a crappy job at getting my posts up in a timely manner. I have every intention of scheduling them but then, in true attention deficit fashion, I get sidetracked and end up struggling to get posts published in the AM. 

Better late than never though, right!?

Anyhow this is an outfit that I wore on one of my many outings with the dude.

Bustier-TJ Maxx
I've always been a fan of bustiers but I never thought that I had enough boobage to fill one out until I found this precious little floral baby at TJ Maxx a couple of years ago.

Notice I said a couple of years ago-I'm so terrible at purging my closet. I have no idea what I have because I keep on purchasing more things. I swear I need to join a 
Shopper's Anonymous
rehab type of group thingy.

These 'biker-esque' skinnies have been in my closet for a number of years also. I purchased them during a clearance sale at New York and Company. Ask me why I'm just now wearing them 2 years later....

And I tell you no lie-

I can't answer that

I just can't!!!

Most times I get so overwhelmed with finding something to wear that I tend to just go for the most comfortable thing in my closet-and that's almost always something I've worn over and over again.

Here recently I had to put my foot down and stop myself. I've finally convinced myself that I just can't continue to shop if I haven't even worn the things that are already hanging in my closet. There's no way possible I would be able to fit everything.

So I said:

"Self, there's no way in hell that you can convince yourself to stop shopping, soooo you are just gonna have to rip the tags off of those pants, that bustier, and the bolero and wear them out. If you find that you don't like how they look or feel, only then will you know whether or not to get rid of it"

So that's what I've been doing. I've been using these outfit posts as an aide for closet purging.

 And I think I will keep this outfit in it's entirety.

Especially this little bolero. It's so sexy to me. I purchased it from Plato's during their 50% off sale so it was only 6 bucks! 

I love it's versatility-mainly for the fact that it kept me warm in the restaurant during date night without compromising my whole outfit. 

What are the most versatile pieces in your closet and why?

Do share...

And again...thanks for reading.
Love you to pieces!!

Its also because I tend to go through phases of outfits I can see myself in and never get to them.LOL #thestruggle but like you I will try to do better (love the outfit!!!)

  2. Other than jeans my most versatile piece would have to be my striped Nine West suit jacket. I wear it with everything! Love your look and your bun!
