In preparation for my Amvets donation, I thought I'd go through my closet of summer clothes and get rid of stuff.
I donated anything that I don't remember wearing last summer. I also donated anything that when I wear it, I think, "Wow! This doesn't look good on me."
This was a lot of clothing to donate.
And sadly, I decided to donate some items from my (much) smaller days that just make me sad when I see them. Like the purple velvet floor-length skirt and matching camisole. That was pretty. But I haven't worn it since 1999. I also donated my calf-length black dress covered top to bottom in horizontal stripes, because that will never look good on me again.
I wasn't quite ready to get rid of some sentimental t-shirts and some clothes in a more medium size that I could potentially wear tastefully again.
All told, I'm donating 53 items of clothing from my closet.
Really. Who needs this many clothes?
Tomorrow, I'm going through my winter clothes. And I'm gonna fold the keepers and put 'em away while I'm at it. I don't think I'll be brave enough to post a before photo, but it would be illustrative.
