My March edits

March was an odd month.
However I got some editing done.
Good, conscious, simple edits.

My first item to go this month was a pair of 7 For All Mankind Jeans.
They never fit well but I kept holding on to them because of the brand.
Another one was my New York & Company cut off jeans.
They weren't doing me any favours. 
They were low cut and the
length was never right.

This pair of Levi´s jeans use to be long. 
But, I had them shortened because I thought they would look better. 
I wore them like this for over 8 years 
only to realize NOW that the length was so wrong. 
My bootcut Levi's left too. I wore them a lot but
after taking a few front and back pictures I realized
they were not helping me in any deparment.
These black trousers by Mary McFadden also left.
They were a bit high waisted, which I am ok with, but 
I took some pictures from the back and it really looked bad.
Also the black color had faded a bit and I did not see any reason
to keep it as I have plenty of other black trousers that fit better.

I also got rid of a green Tangerine brand t shirt. I never wore it and when I finally did, I realized it the color was fading.

My Zara grey turtle neck sweater was never worn.
The fabric was clingy, the turtle neck was wide and the
length was odd. 
Also decided to let go of my purple long dress from the Cherish brand.
I paid about 30.00 USD for this dress a few years back.
Worn about 8 or 9 times, so 3.00 USD per wear is not bad.
But after a couple of washes it began to shrink and it no longer hit 
the floor but more or less my ankles. The length became odd.
Also the thin fabric began to pile and then I found a hole in it.

My piyama drawer also got a second look and my Faded Glory and my Tommy Hilfiger pjs were no longer acceptable.

I also let go of a charm bracelet as the plastic beads
lost color and it looked tarnished.
11 items.

Clear skies

Clear skies,
 the perfect excuse to be outdoors.
Merona jean shorts - Elvis t shirt - Grendha white flip flops
Pick fruit, walk around the trees ...
Smell the flowers and watch for birds.
Gawd, I am turning into an old lady.

Jeans re-examined

Here I am one day reading Respect the Shoes.
So, one day Lisa tried on all of her jeans and took pictures
of how they fit from: the front, sides and back. Ouch.
Certain items started leaving her closet.
Although she did not post about the entire process, I
thought I would do the same and document it.
This, so later on I have NO regrets on why I got
rid of the jeans or why I kept them.
SO, I started..

Levi´s slim fit jeans - gone wrong.
Too high waisted, front is also bad.
But for some reason I wore them a lot, maybe I had not taken the time to
see them from behind... or I did and did not care to look twice.

Here´s proof I wore it a lot, I also just realized that it looked a bit better
when I did not tuck the shirt in.
On the brightside, I got my money's worth as I bought these
 jeans on sale in February 2011 for 12.99 usd and wore
them over 30 times.
Now comes another case from my closet:
Jeans gone very wrong: 7 For All Mankind Jeans
Awful from every angle and yet they lived in my closet for a few years.
They got out quite frequently as I refered to them as my "fat jeans".
Fat jeans are those that still fit when you are 10 pounds your regular weight.
Once again, these kinda work with jackets.
For me letting go of ill fitting jeans or ill fitting anything is
usually a process where I have to convince myself. I know-cuckoo.
I got rid of even more jeans than just the two pictured -
you'll see them in my edit post for March.
However 2 ill fitting jeans seemed like all the
embarrasement I could take in one post.
