The apartment we live in is not that big, so consequently, we have limited wardrobe space. With a hobbit-husband who loves shopping more than eating, and myself with a healthy interest in clothing and fashion as well, we are running out of space. Until we move to a bigger place, I have to think about what I buy and what needs hanging, as I simply don’t have space.
So this weekend, I had to say goodbye to two hardly worn pieces: a white blazer with lace arms; only worn it once; I liked it for the lace details, but the rest of the fabric looked a bit cheap and wrinkly after washing it once. So it’s a pity, but not a huge loss.
I also decided to say goodbye to a recently bought Missoni dress. I bought quite a few dresses over the last years and this was one of my latest finds. I got it at a huge discount, so I was very pleased with it.When fitting it at home, it was fine; surprisingly, it was long enough standing in front of the mirror (it is an Italian brand after all that doesn’t really aim at tall women).
Then I wore it to work; when sitting down it’s all still OK. However, when walking around, it rides up! It becomes a mini dress, lovely for in a club maybe, but not suitable for work. Plus pulling it down all the time simply looks silly. So it has to go. I will put this one on eBay though as I’ve had it for only a few months and worn it twice. It’s a shame to say goodbye to hardly worn items, but it needs to make space for something I will wear (and it makes a great excuse for shopping for a new dress… 😉 )
