Packrat

I have trouble letting go of things.  Especially for clothes.  My packrat reasoning is that I might have some kind of occasion to wear things in the future.  But that reasoning also covers items that I should really be getting rid of.  Like this skirt.  It's sized wrong (and 4 sizes too big) with an uneven hem.  But I haven't gotten rid of it yet because I keep telling myself I'll wear it one day, even though I've only worn it once in the past two years.  So now that I have photographic evidence that I've worn it again for the blog, I think I can finally get rid of it.  On the other hand, I haven't worn this top since high school, but I think I might have found a new interest in it that makes me want to keep it.

  4. I love that cool skirt, glad you didn't get rid of it! I have the same issue though, it is so hard for me to get rid of clothes because I feel like I would regret it if I ever need it again.

  5. I can imagine your closet to resemble mine as I have a hard time getting rid of clothes too. My brain's reasoning runs along the same lines as yours too. "You'll never know I might need it one day!"

  14. I definitely have the same problem as you!! Whenever I try to spring clean my closet, I end up keeping almost everything because I convince myself I'll want to wear it again sometime in the future. Yet, the occasion rarely occurs...lol :) The skirt looks cute though! Definitely can't tell that it's too big for you :)
