Confession time: I did another order from Everything5Pounds. I have mixed feelings, and this is why. I has been trying to resist fast fashion. Having said that, some of the items from E5P are excellent quality. The other reason for internal disquiet is that the […]
- 10 tops
- 7 pairs of jeans/trousers (1x light blue jeans, 2x dark blue jeans, 2x work trousers, 1x black jeans, 1x grey jeans)
- 7 dresses
- 6 jackets/cardigans
- 3 coats
I adore the crisp lines of a good suit. Executives, military, flight attendants; there are plenty of suited and booted looks that can draw you in. No doubt someone has done a study about why some work wear is just so appealing, but for me […]
- Know what the item/choice actually is and why you like it.
- Find out a little about its use in its country of origin.
- Work out what element of its significance inspires you so you can share that knowledge and positivity with others and acknowledge the significance.
- Honour and respect it.
I’ve been thinking about doing something new with my hair. I’ve always had a history of playing withcolour, but for the last five years I’ve been rather tame. Partly because I was being “sensible” (i.e. “corporate”) and partly because I was growing it long and […]
Next are the outer layers. Not a deal in summer, but for most of the year I’m going to want to have another layer either on me or easily accessible. I have blazers, cardis, wraps, jackets, coats and jumpers. Okay, now this is getting difficult.
Looking in my wardrobe, I realised that I forgot that I had a suit. I’ll have to keep that, it’s my power outfit. I’m not going to count it in the tally since it’s not going to be in regular use. I feel like I’m cheating already. Oh well. Back to the outer layers.
Since I can’t decide where to start, I’ll start culling from each section:
Cardis: I have seven. I love cardis, they’re so portable and easy and they come in every colour. But I guess I don’t need seven. I’ll only keep four.
Blazers: Ignoring the one with the suit, I have 2 and one I never wear. That was easy.
Wraps: Should I count these as outer layers, or accessories? I guess they are layers. I can’t part with any of them, I’ll have to keep all three.
Jumpers: I didn’t wear either of them last winter. Out they go!
Coats: Workwear-wise, I have two. A light one and a heavy one. So I’m keeping both of those.
Okay, that’s a start! What do you think? How many work items do you have?
