I was talking to my very best friend last week about our mutual and irritating conundrum. We are both at a point where, when we stand in front of our very full closets, we swear we have nothing to wear. This is the point at which I would prefer to purge and start anew, alas, my wallet thinks otherwise. So, I decide to do the practical thing and edit. I start with my bottoms pulling out all my jeans, pants, shorts and skirts and lay them on my bed.
Feeling an odd mixture of happiness (for not having anything to get rid of), disappointment (for not having anything to get rid of) and pride (for having a closet full of pieces that I truly like), I tried to find something to change. I came to the conclusion that my self-bleached denim jeans weren’t quite doing it for me as pants* so, I decided I would become a shorts surgeon.
*Take note when bleaching your jeans, they lose their shape and don’t fit quite right. The bleach kills some of the elasticity making your jeans stretching them out, regardless of washing. Bleach with care.
