Now there is something that may or may not be a hit with us gals… the clothes reminder. There hidden in my closet in my clothes is a little gadget to remind me that I haven’t worn that piece of clothing for a long time and that it is high time to wear it again…. There you have it! My clothes are telling me what to do and that is just a no go in my life!!!
After reading that article; I stood in front of my closet to see how many things that I haven’t worn in ages…. Okay there are some pieces of clothing that have been in my closet for ages, but now they are vintage, and the possibility that I might wear that garment again is possible …. Or not???
Anyway, I want to have control of things!!! I mean really our closet is our dearest thing; there in that closet is our life, our treasures or even for some their sorrows but it is ours and the clothing, shoes and other great things we own are there too. And when we feel a bit nostalgic we can look at all the great things we have stuffed in our closet. But when there is a tag on our clothing to tell us we haven’t worn that garment in a long time and to sort it out…… Then what???? No more fond memories, no more just staring at our things…. NO…. Now just looking at a closet full of functional garments that are to be worn or else…..GOOD BYE!!
The cold hearted truth of the closet….. This idea just makes me want to cry when thinking about it and maybe some of you gals out there feel the same way???
For guys it may be a great thing because they seem to be more practical….. I guess??? There are some unanswered questions there too.
I had to take a short break here from writing and looked again in my closet and tried to decide what I would sort out and say good-bye too…. It was like saying good bye to a dear friend…. You have done so many things together and experience some great things together too and then to say good –bye brings tears to my eyes… I am sure some gals feel the same way, but then again there are those garments that you can be cold hearted too and say “Hey,I don’t want you anymore”…. Easy as that and the bad memories are gone in a flash that were associated with that garment. Though it is true not all pieces of clothing can be saved forever but we still need a bit of a choice as to what to wear or at least I do.
The closet is a place not to be tagged but to be a place for us gals to put our beloved clothing in……Enjoy what is in your closet, because that is where your treasured clothing is!!!
