Anyway, back to the sweaters, and clothing in general: I am really lightening my load this season. This week, I consigned a whopping 86 items from my closet (and made a nice little chunk of change, yay!). Most of the items were older pieces, v-neck sweaters, old cardigans, and colors that didn't feel like "me" anymore, and I didn't think any of them would be of interest on Shop Colorful Corporate either. So I hauled two large bins to the consignment shop, and I feel SO much better! I literally feel lighter...like all the old clothing was weighing me down. I would say in the past two years my shopping habits have changed pretty drastically. Whereas before I was more about quantity, now I focus on having fewer, but nicer, items. Pieces that I adore, and will wear, rather than a bunch of "stuff" that just sits there because I don't really love it. I think that is why I have been loving J.Crew and Anthropologie so much in the past few years. The clothing is so classic, and of high quality, but there's always some twist that makes them look modern and unique.
I wish this giraffe necklace was still online for you to see...it is so cute! I will get a close up next time. The muted colors are perfect for fall, and the little guy got a lot of compliments today! One of the giraffes at the Cincinnati Zoo is about to have a baby, so it was perfect timing to wear this necklace!
What is your fashion concept: Quantity or quality? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks so much for visiting!
