Hello Glam & Sassy loves! We have all been through it. The dreaded break up. Whether you were the break up-er or the break up-ee, it is never easy at the time. Luckily, we eventually get over it and it makes for a good story at parties. My worst break up was the equivalent to the episode of Sex and the City when Berger breaks up with Carrie on a Post It note. However, instead of a post it, mine was via text. At 8am. Right before I was boarding a flight from CA to NJ. So not only was I devastated by the blindsided dumping, I also had to suffer in silence on a 5 1/2 hour flight as to not have my row mates think I was some crazy chick AND with no communication to the outside world. I mean, if there is ever a time a girl needs to cry to her bff or get anti heartbreak advice from mom, this was it. It was so awful at the time, but now, I laugh about how pathetic it was and here I am blogging about it! Just as relationships reach their expiration date, so do some items in our closets. Keep reading for a few looks that are ready to be kicked to the curb.
In our closets, much like relationships, there shouldn’t be any unknowns. If you are wondering if a particular top has seen better days, then it is probably time to retire it. Also, if any formerly white tees or tanks are looking dull, please replace with a crisp new version. Anything that has lost its luster just isn’t worth taking up valuable real estate in your closet. I love this poly peach tank from W by Worth styled with destructed denim and wedges. The fabric feels so amazing on my skin and the color is “Optic White” with a brightness that shines!
Sometimes in life, no matter hard you try to repair something, after a while you realize you just have to bid it adieu. The same goes for shoes. If heels are worn down or soles are scuffed beyond their red recognition, to the goodwill they must go. I know it is difficult when you are so attached and they are oh so comfortable, but comfort isn’t reason enough to keep something in your life. And who knows, your old footwear faves may find a new owner that is happy with them. See, you did something good for someone else and now you have an excuse to bring home the ones you have been eying up for weeks now. My all time favorite shoe is the YSL Tribute . They are perfect with everything from denim to dresses, desk to dancing. As every mate should be.
Use it or Lose It:
The rule of thumb is if you haven’t worn something in a year, the chances that you ever will are slim. The reasoning behind this is, if it made you happy, you would’ve enjoyed showing it off by now. Life is too short to waste time thumbing through your closet through undesirable clothes. To avoid this in the future, purchase investment pieces…classically chic fashions that are made well and that you will be able to wear year after year. Some basic must haves are a versatile blazer, an all occasion dress, and flirty top to style with your favorite jeans. Stay tuned next week for my blog on those essential items. Breaking up is hard, but looking Glam & Sassy is the reward… and the best revenge.
