Clothes and Carmen

Carmen, if it’s about clothes, you have to be included!

Here’s my closet.

Do I have too many clothes?

Just reading a blog the other day, (I think it was Nony from ASlobComesClean.com) about having too many clothes.

And how most of us wear only 20% of our clothes for 80% of the time.  What?? That sounds cray-cray!

I wear mine, all of them!  (As soon as they’re clean! And I can find them in the pile.)  But, I must admit, I do have favorites, and unfavorites.  I hate stuff up on my neck, so if it’s a crew neck, I try to avoid wearing that.

( That’s how you’ll know it’s laundry day! )

And of course, purple(lavender) has precedence over ANY other color.

But, my lavender jeans, that are long enough!!!! do not stay zipped.  And last time they did that, I was in church… walking in front of half the congregation, to get out the side door, on a walker, herding a screaming toddler…. Yeah, you can imagine how that went!  Thank God I was wearing purple undies!  And a long shirt!  So, maybe no one noticed…. Right…

(where’s that sarcasm font when you need it???)  At least I caught them every time before they hit my knees!!

Who needs hands on their walker??  I can use my forearm!

I needed several doughnuts to recover from THAT trek! ( In the pre-gluten free days!)

Any hoo… where was I?? Oh, yeah!  Too many clothes.

So, maybe, just maybe my favorite, lavender, long enough jeans need to go.  I’ll need support to handle this one, ladies!  Do you know how hard it is to find lavender jeans?? that are long enough???  in a size (mumble, mumble)??

Who cares if they don’t stay up??  Oh, I see, everyone who sees me. Oh, okay.

Well, drats.  I guess they go in the donate pile.  A moment of silence , please. (Taps plays softly in the background).

  9. Lucy,
    The problem with getting rid of clothes is that you start buying new ones as soon as you can afford any. And then it piles up again + you need people to see you in different clothes each day- or else they start thinking you are poor and repeating clothes- which is not good, right ? ( Sarcasm button)
    I hope you were able to find lavender jeans in a smaller size.
    Susie
