You know ladies, I think it's probably a sign that you have too much stuff when you have pieces that you love, but end up completely forgetting that you have because it somehow manages to get lost in everything else. For me, that's this dress (amongst other things). I wore it for Easter last year and one other time, then it got packed up in some strange place during the move last August and I hadn't seen it since. Didn't even think about it actually, until last night when I was trying to lay out my clothes for the next day.
That nightly planning session usually goes something like this:
1. Check weather app on iPhone
2. Check calendar for any meetings the next day
3. Dive into the closet...walk back out thinking, "Where the heck is my....?"
After that, a mini panic might ensue as I try to figure out if said item is dirty, at the cleaners or just completely MIA.
This time, during my search I happened upon a mini treasure trove of forgotten dresses. Apparently, my mother had stuffed a bunch of items into a suitcase, which got put into a storage room (read: junk room). Thanks Mom...I think. *smile*
No, seriously though, I need to rifle through that thing and see if I can still fit stuff. Luckily, for me the fabric for this dress is forgiving.
When you ladies discover that you have much too much stuff, what do you do? Swap parties, donate or clothing resale stores?
