Purging my wardrobe

[ Edited ]

of what I consider my old lady clothes. 😬 the loud printed embellished tops that seemed like a great deal at Bealls. They were cheap. They look cheap. Anything with fussy looking prints. I'm paring down to plain oversized tees in mostly white and black, with classic jeans from Democracy and NYDJ. A few white pants. A simple black SG midi dress that I can wear with flip flops or a nicer sandal.  That's the look and level of comfort I want. My jewelry is already minimal, a classic silver statement ring, pearl stud earrings, silver bracelet or large watch. Silver cartouche style pendant that contains my sons ashes.  I will have fewer clothes but classier, more timeless items. What I really need is Talbots clothing on a smaller budget.

Actually, a streamlined, simple, classic wardrobe puts the emphasis on the woman and not the clothing. That's why high end retailers rarely feature a lot of prints in the clothing they sell. It's subtle but definitely there. Prints hide a lot of flaws in the workmanship of a garment. Years ago I remember reading, the cheaper the garment, the more likely it will be embellished @Kachina624 .

Doesn't sound boring or drab to me at all!!


I just went thru a bunch of crop pants, bermuda shorts and capris---that were in my drawer taking up room--tried them all on or TRIED to get them on Woman Tongue and got rid of about 5 or 6 ---those mostly in a size I will NEVER see again and don't care to. Did the same with my shoe hoard recently---I just need basic stuff, nothing fancy, that looks good on and feels good on. Have more to do ----

@fairydogmother  You go girl! That's a job! You can never go wrong with the basics. I talbots is always a good choice. I just took a dress I've had for years and had the buttons changed! Brand new dress! I'm sure your pendant with  your sons ashes is beautiful!

Do you get emails from Talbots? If you sign up for sale notifications you will get coupons and notification of some great sales that they have. Just recently I had a 50-60% off plus $$$ off, the reduced prices were terrific.
