So I was just enjoying Beebee’s Vintage Dress blog and she is doing a major wardrobe overhaul. I should do this too- it would be very productive and I can play dress up, so win-win… Annie style.
She reveals the following:
Gunn’s 10 Essential Items Every Woman Needs
• Basic black dress
• Trench coat
• Classic dress pants
• Classic white shirt
• Day dress
• Cashmere sweater
• A comfortable alternative to a sweatsuit
I sense that this is going to be a very upsetting trip thru my closet.
My trench coat is not Burberry- it’s a green floral that I lost the tie to.
My classic dress pants have cat-hair maribou hems from hanging on the bottom row of my closet where the puss-tails do hibernate.
What is a comfortable alternative to a sweatsuit?
I’m thinking that comfortable is an adjective that I should remove from my shopping vocabulary. Also kitshy, novelty and anything my husband sees on Katy Perry. Lets face it- I have a wardrobe that looks like it emerged from a clown car. If I went on What Not To Wear, they would call for a priest. And I quite possible would try to wear his vestments as a sash.
So. My sewing resolve for the month of September is to get some normalcy up in that closet! My pop pieces are threatening to explode and take hostages.
