Closet Case

DD Andrea is constantly on my case about my clothing and lack of style. This coming from a teenager who lives in skimpy t-shirts and torn jeans?? (Sigh!) When I asked her what's so wrong with my attire, I got a whole laundry list: it's ugly, it has no shape, looks like something grandmas wear, the colours are all wrong, etc. etc. etc.

So, I challenged Little Miss What Not To Wear: Free access to my closet, toss out everything that doesn't meet with your approval and then we go shopping. Obviously, I have veto power on certain items.

When I came home from work yesterday, there was a mountain of clothing on my bed. Damn, she took her chore seriously! I hate to admit it, but she was right - there were things in there that didn't fit, were too shapeless and uncomfortable. Her intense hatred of holiday sweaters shone through since all my Christmas, Halloween sweaters were in that stack. I used my veto power - one for each holiday. A gal's gotta have some celebrating after all!

Since I've lost 30 pounds this is the first ruthless go through of my wardrobe and it was admittedly long overdue. We filled up FOUR Hefty yard bags with the clothing and made the first "deposit" at the charity box.

First? Yeah, she isn't done!
