Ok so now that we’ve covered that, let’s talk purging and rebuilding. After I looked at my style boards as mentioned in Part 1, I love retro sneakers, dark denim jeans, striped shirts, leather skirts and moto-style jackets. So I made a list of all the things that my boards revealed and once I had that I was ready to shop but first…I went into my closet and pulled out anything that didn’t fit my list. What I ended up with was a pile of clothes that I NEVER wore anyway because they weren’t my style.
After I looked at the huge pile of clothes, I went back to my list and checked off the items that I had already. No need to buy anything new if it’s already represented at least twice in my closet. After that I had a better picture of what I wanted to add to my new 40s wardrobe.
Next, get yourself a notebook. I had a unused 5 x 7 notebook that I wrote my list in. I broke the list down like this:
- Shoe Styles
- Accessories Style
Feel free to break your list down however it helps you.
I even created a list of work week chic wear based on my overall list.
Ok, so we’re almost done. Look out for Part 3-Creating Your Style Guide
Stay classy! Trina
