|There are treasures hiding in there.|
The idea for my January challenge was hatched when Chenille helped me clean out my closet. She gave me a second opinion on what should stay, what should go, and what has been forgotten for too long. I sent some closet orphans home with Chenille, some went to Goodwill, and some remained in my closet with a vow to wear them more often.
I've decided that the best way to make sure that I am making good use of my wardrobe is by working my way through my closet systematically. I plan on mostly working from front to back, with exceptions made for special-occasion clothes and the few items I have that are on the snug side right now.
I'm looking forward to this challenge because it takes some of the thought out of choosing what to wear while also challenging me to make the next item in line fit the day I have ahead.
I anticipate that this challenge will take more than one month. I have a lot of clothes. To save my memory and help me keep track I will mark the tags of clothes I've already worn with tiny safety pins. I won't prohibit wearing the same piece twice (it could be the focal piece in one outfit and supporting player in another), but the more variety I have the quicker this challenge will go.
My clothes are organized by color and garment-type, so look forward to a slow progression of rainbow shades in the coming weeks. I'll make sure to point out which piece of the outfit is the main event.
I'm so excited about this challenge that I'm starting today. Who knows what I'll find deep down in the recesses of my closet. Wish me luck!
