Wear your clothes

I just cleaned out my closet and found 63 items that I NEVER wear! 

I found 72 items that I only wear occasionally.  I couldn't talk myself into getting rid of these, too, but hopefully will in the next go around.  I want to pare down my wardrobe to the items that I actually wear all of the time.

The moral of this story is my style tip #1 -
      Buy something only if you love it more than your favorite item that you already own.

If you just buy "staples" and "basics", you will end up with a closet full of "blah". 

Style tip #2 -
      Don't save your favorite outfits for special occasions.  Wear them. 

Buy your favorite outfits, wear them out, get rid of them.  Then buy more favorite outfits.  Your wardrobe will be smaller but more interesting and fun.

I did find a few items that can be re-purposed.  First item -

slightly too short and tapered at the ankles
Check back later to see what these pants will become...
