The fabulous Cindy over at Come Over To The Darkside We Have Candy did a great post yesterday "New Finds - In My Closet" and it got me to wondering actually how many things I have in my wardrobe that I've never worn? So I've pulled out everything to see and blimey.....it's not as bad as I thought it would be! Now if it was things I've worn only once......then I'd be here all night taking pictures and writing about it. So here goes....
From the top left: my Dorothy shoes from Office, purple flats from Topshop, pink leaf shoes from Office, navy heels from Red or Dead, pink "Dirty Girl" heels from Red or Dead and rainbow heels from Red or Dead! I'm quite surprised that there are only six pairs I haven't worn out of the eighty odd I have.
These are the full length version of the French Connection shorts you've seen me wear here and here. I have no idea why I haven't worn these yet?!
From the left: DKNY yellow silk wrap skirt, Monsoon silk rose print devore skirt, All Saints white Russian Doll skirt, All Saints grey check Russian Doll skirt and Lulu & Red tartan skirt.
I love this Orion cardigan with Bambi's all over it but I've never worn it! From the left; Topshop pink shirt, beaded sheer top I Swished from Tatty, Sisley pale blue wrap shirt, white Jane Norman shirt and then loads of different colour La Senza camisoles.
My French Connection playsuit that I love and have never worn although it's had a couple of outings as Tatty borrows it from time to time.
More of my corsets from Kookai, I've got these in about five different colours you've seen me wear the green one before but I've never worked out what to wear these ones with!
Last is my dresses from the left: Kasike green beaded mini, All Saints Hideki knitted dress, Zara floaty chiffon dress, another one of my creations it's a full skirted 50's style dress in what I've nicknamed "Desperate Housewives" fabric and my Miss Selfridge maxi dress.
I think the reason I haven't worn all these things is because I'm not sure how to style them or I don't think I have the right things to wear them with. I'm always looking to buy new things but with the amount of clothes I have I really don't need anything new! Well maybe a few basics here and there.....and I always need more shoes, doesn't everybody?
I'm a big fan of Swishing (except for the last Big Swish that I dragged Mrs.B.G. to AWFUL!) especially if you organise it between your friends and have cake and pink fizzy wine.....you can get some great things like the jewellery the fabulous V brought with her and my Reiss coat as swished by Mrs B.G.! The "professional" Swish we went to was badly orgnaised and a massive free for all, I bet half the things that the people took home with them that night will end up at the back of their wardrobe unloved and never worn which kind of misses the point! I don't think I'm ready to Swish any of the items I've listed in this post just yet but there has to come a time when you let something go if you really are never going to wear it, no?
How many things do you have in your wardrobe that you've never worn?
Lots of Love
