I vowed to buy no new clothes in 2019. That means no new dresses, no new activewear, not even new socks.
Up until recently (when I did a big cull) I had my main wardrobe, a drawer of off-season clothes and a whole other wardrobe in our spare room filled with clothes I never wore. Most of these clothes were from when I was 20 (I’m now turning 27) and were the kinds of things only 20-year-olds could get away with wearing— think tiny flouro mini-dresses and those high-waisted nappy shorts that show your under-bum.
How to make your wardrobe work for you. Post continues after video.
I had these clothes posted in local buy/swap/sell groups for years with no luck. Eventually, I got the sh*ts and decided I would rather give my old clothes to someone in need than deal with the difficult people on these sites. So, I chucked the entire contents of the spare wardrobe in the local charity bin. I’m looking forward to the moment where I see a youth out and about wearing my old neon orange minidress… I’ll give her a knowing look, and she looks back at me like ‘Why is this strange woman staring at me?’
