I had just been shopping and decided to hang up my new purchases up in my wardrobe when this happened:
A whole bunch of clothes that no longer fit.
This is my DIY pile, I'm going to dye all of these to make them more versatile. Some have simply faded and need to be put in a dye bath.
The dress I wore for my 18th and spent £45 on, I've worn it once. Sigh what a waste, I didn't even really like it I just wanted something new to wear and got desperate. Below that is a 1940s vintage skirt I bought for £30, it's cute but it's just not me. The red lace dress is also vintage and beautiful, I love it but I have to accept it's too short on me.
Two full bags of clothes I'm taking to charity shops or reselling. The final total of what the clothes cost me is horrifying, it's £200 worth of clothes I bought and regretted. However it's fair to say a few of these don't fit me anymore, I'm too tall or too big. The £200 also includes the accessories I had bought and never used, I always have a favourite that I wear to death and then replace.
Much better! I've recently bought a new black wardrobe, now I've just got to put it up (snort like that's going to happen, I'll ring my Dad).
