This is not your normal "what shall I wear" dilemma - it is more like how can I get to what I want to wear through all this stuff. I am sure there are plenty of women like me who keep all their timeless purchases but seldom wear them - preferring to shop by occasion and just collect clothes - unfortunately shopping is my hobby - I really need to have a radical cull of this wardrobe/dressing room - but where to begin. What I usually do is file unworn stuff away in an old suitcase, just in case my daughter might want to resurrect it at some date in the future - this means I can go to an eighties fancy dress party at the drop of a hat, and can kit out most of the other guests too - which reminds me I am missing a floral and denim ra-ra skirt and bejewelled denim jacket with shoulder pads. I have thought of enlisting specialist services to help, but I just know I wont be allowing anyone to throw out anything that has the remotest possiblity of being the height of fashion any time in the next decade.
Perhaps I need a thorough Gok Wan treatment - less is more, but that doesn't help with the hobby!
