Seriously, over 60 is a little bit ridiculous? If I had endless wardrobe space, and an endless pot of money, I wouldn’t consider it a problem. But, I don’t. Plus, I’m not sure I’m getting the most out of my money.
Recently, I did something I never do. I bought an expensive dress as a little treat for my first pay packet whilst doing my new role. Sounds completely contradictory of what I just said, right? Stay with me. I wore it last night and felt a million bucks! Would I wear this dress again? Definitely. Over and over again. It was comfortable, fit well and not a fashion piece.
So, it got me thinking. Over the Lenten period, in addition to not buying dresses, I am going to try and whittle my dress wardrobe down to the magical number of 27. A range of 27 dresses that are quality pieces and will serve me well for a range of different occassions.
What for the remaining 33 dresses? I’m going to eBay them. Get rid! Clear room! Just keep the dresses that fit well and are wardobe staples. Over the years, I’ve sold lots on eBay and raised a pretty penny. I’ll use the money for travelling, but with it being Lent, I’ll donate a chunk to a charity I’ll decide on closer to the time.
What are your Lenten promises? How many dresses do you own?
Wish me luck!
