I gave myself a challenge this spring/summer wardrobe season: to wear everything in my closet! I did that trick of turning all the hangers backwards, and then putting them back in the "right" way once I've worn something.
- Cardigan - Club Monaco, thrifted; last seen here in July 2014 with a side of Kermit
- Top - Mossimo, thrifted; last worn here in June 2014 with mod pattern
- Skirt - Roland Kerry, consignment, vintage 80s; last seen here in December 2014 with more mustard
- Shoes - Half-Truth Tanya, Fluevog; last worn here in April with a Swoosh Factor 10 skirt

- Necklace - vintage 50s, Grandma J's
We'll see how I do with wearing all those hangared things. The giveaway pile may grow!
I have been following your blog for quite awhile but I just got my computer friend to hook me up for comments. I love this outfit on you... it really accentuates your figure! Great look!
I wanted to thank you for posting the brand names of your shoes. You hooked me up with Fluevog. Now I'm a devoted wearer and yes, perhaps even an addict! Lol (International Fluevog Day here I come!). So I will be posting more but I wanted to thank you for your blog and for the gift of turning me on to the coolest shoes ever! I remain. A devoted lover of your creative fashion artistry!
I hope you'll let us know if you did in fact order those shoes...ReplyDelete
I have some of those tops - serviceable, nice, but love? These are all great pieces but the skirt and shoes are showstoppers.
Laury, aw, thank you so much for reading and for your inaugural comment! I really appreciate your kind words! Rock on!ReplyDelete
Melanie, duh, yes, of course I ordered them. :)
I would be interested to do that exercise myself too and see if I turn all the hangers back! Although I am trying to wear more of my wardrobe, I'm finding that I tend to just wear my favourite pieces or newer pieces more often too.ReplyDelete
I think once we get a new place and I have a better laid out wardrobe I'll try this trick - will be interesting to hear your thoughts once you have completed your experiment too!
I try to only buy and keep what I love, too - but sometimes I need a black tee or another basic. Then I give myself the OK to "like" it. Your skirt, however - that's a Love. xoxReplyDelete
O.M.G. I have given myself the same challenge. Either I wear it this year or it goes bye-bye. I LOVE the idea of turning the hangers the wrong way until it's worn. What a great idea!ReplyDelete
Not my idea, Liz W! I can't take credit for it! But yes, good to really weed through everything.ReplyDelete
I do love that skirt, and it's a reminder to me to wear the maxi length one I have which is very similar (might shorten it to a midi in your honour actually!)ReplyDelete
I know what you mean about so-so tops and cardigans, I have a few, but though they aren't showstoppers, they are just so damn useful! xxx
Oh this is very close to home.ReplyDelete
I ask myself "do i love this?" "does this work for me?" "Why am i keeping this?"
The "wear it all this summer" challenge seems like a great idea to evaluate the closet while giving items one last chance… my kinda thing :)
