In My Closet {August Moon 14}

Kat has asked us to look into our closets and see what personalities we discover within.

Who would have thought a prompt about clothes would have me so stumped?

It’s not that I don’t like clothes, or fashion, or dressing up.

It’s just my current wardrobe is a bit lacklustre and I’m more of a ‘Wear the old coat and buy the new book.’* person.

But I can see different aspects of my personality within.

My geek girl/movie-fan side is represented with (perhaps too many) pop culture t-shirts, awaiting warmer days.

My borderline bogan still has her adidas trackies and sports team tee.

My sensible woman has her black pants although I am noticing a distinct lack of nice tops and blouses to pair them with.

My nest loving homebody has a lot of comfy, snug, house clothes.

My slightly ‘woo-woo’ side has yoga pants and clothes with wolf and feather motifs.

My fledgling fit-chick is growing her collection of running tops and pants.

But it’s what is missing from my wardrobe that is glaringly obvious to me upon inspection;

Where are my dresses? Why don’t I have any skirts?

I don’t own much that is floaty and feminine.

It’s interesting that these are the type of clothes that have kind of faded out of my wardrobe, that seem to be at the bottom of my fashion priority list.

I’m not sure why this is so, but I would like to change it.

This summer, I’m going to make it my mission to find at least one dress and one skirt to add to my wardrobe.

If I’m successful, I might even show you guys.

Do you have any favourite dresses or skirts? Could you point me in the direction of your favourite store?

What’s missing from your wardrobe?

Yeah, I’m a little late to the party, but these prompts from August were so delicious I couldn’t let them pass me by.

You’ll be glad you did.}

  1. I’m late on this one… I too, am a buy art supplies/new book/new pens and wear the old _______ or eat leftovers… lmao! I thrift and garage sale a LOT and find the best things… I think the Universe conspires for our good and delight though;) ‘All things work together…’ not just so we survive but so we thrive;) My favorite clearance stores for such things though are American Eagle and Maurices… but if you have one of those huge XXI stores in your mall… or an H&M, you can find a cute little trendy piece pretty cheap, wear it and not feel bad when you don’t like it anymore… although I find ways to keep too much. (I culled this year–and this is my ‘No new clothes year!’)
