- I don't like pants
- Pencil skirts make me feel sexy and feminine
- Dressing up with a little more effort lifts my mood
- It's okay to wear hosiery on the beach
- I have great clothes!
You may have noticed that I only wore pants once.I do not find them interesting. Wearing a skirt with hosiery is so much more fun. Since I have a gut feeling that I will need these one day, I am holding on to two pairs:
|You would never know it, but I really do like these Ann Taylor tuxedo pants. I am just too cheap to take them to a tailor to repair the hem. I know. Shame on me. Ann Taylor $50 (purchased 7 years ago)|
|I wore these Diane von Furnstenburg wool pants a few times this Fall. That justifies their stay. DVF, Goodwill $2|
These next few are getting the heave- ho. The fit is snug through the hips and thighs, and the back pockets make my behind look wide and flat. Need I say more?
|Purchased 6 years ago with a matching jacket. I wear the jacket in the Spring, but have not worn these pants in 3 years. Issac Mizarhi, Target $24|
|Ugh. I hate these pants. Took them to the cleaners to shorten the hem and what I got back was an ankle pant. Ankle boot-cut pants are not a good look. Even with flats, they look ridiculous. French Connection, Lohmanns $40|
These other items did not make the cut:
|So "not me." NY and CO, Goodwill $2|
|Wanted to like this skirt, but it's too big in the waist and way too long. Esprit, Esprit Outlet $7|
|The long hemline makes me look granny. Merona, Goodwill $2|
|Don't be fooled. This blouse is not really navy blue- more like a teal. This impostor has to go. Forever 21, $14|
|This skirt is tight as hell. French Connection, Goodwill $2|
|This is an XL; I am a XS. Max Studio, Goodwill $2|
|Don't know what I was thinking when I got this. So, not "me". NY and CO, Goodwill $2|
|Really wanted to make this work. Wide wale corduroy does not agree with my hips. Vintage, Goodwill $2|
|I can not breath in this. Evan Picone, Goodwill $2|
|This is a "Maybe". I may hold on to it till next Fall. Issac Mizarhi, Target $10|
From this Challenge I learned, new clothes do not make me feel good, look slimmer; or appear prettier. I have everything I will ever need waiting for me in my closet.
