Do you have favorites in your closet? Items that you simply cannot stop defaulting to for some strange, unknown reason other than the fact that something about them draws you in like a black hole. I do…and a whole lot of them! Here are just a few of my favorites or go-to pieces:
- Tights. There, I said it. I have an entire drawer full of tights. Living in South Florida, some may say that sounds ridiculous, right? I feel like I can conquer the world, feminine, & sexy when I wear a pair of tights. It’s kind of awesome, and a great self esteem booster. There is nothing I want more than tights. Except shoes…to wear with the tights, haha.
- Shoes. Oh, you didn’t know that little ol’ me has a shoe addiction? Well, let me tell you..and let the Mister, who has dwindling closet space thanks to my shoes taking over, tell you…it’s true. A friend of mine said something to me recently that I couldn’t have said better. “Shoes are amazing. They will always fit, always look pretty, and always make you feel good when you put them on.” There you go. Such an enabler, she is.
- Skirts & Dresses. One of my staple looks is a pretty dress with tights, awesome shoes, and a cardigan. You’d think I would have a closet full of dresses, but I don’t. I wish I did! I have quite a few, don’t get me wrong (thanks to sales, thrifting, ebay and more), but I do have plenty of pants & shirts in there too. Sad I can’t go to work in a dress all the time, but doing theatrical work in a pretty outfit might not be so fun…
- Cardigans. I need more of these in my closet. In fact, I just scored this adorable white British Vogue scalloped cardigan yesterday at the thrift shop. My problem is, I wear them too often, so they get worn out really quick. I think I just need a whole separate area for cardigans.
I am constantly purging from my closet to make room for more fun & exciting items. This is the first time I have over 10 hangers free and waiting to be used!
