Skeletons (and messes) in the Closet

Here is the honest truth of my closet:
Probably more embarrassing than my attempt at writing Haiku!
(appreciation of beauty, indeed)

It is that time of year when I don't know what to wear.  As I wash and put away my white linen one last time, I realize that I can't remember what I wore during this season last year. Particularly challenging is the transition of unpredictable temperatures and possible precipitation (I won't even go into the "do I straighten my hair today?" dilemma).  Last Fall, I thought I had a pretty decent wardrobe.  Some favorite pieces, in fact.  But now I look in the vast mess of of my closet and believe that I can't possibly dress myself.

My friend, Linda W., once told me that when she was a teenager, she took polaroids of her outfits and hung them with her clothes so she could remember what things went together.  I thought at the time it sounded like a project only a teenager would take the time and energy to do.  I wish I were a teenager.

Camille H. once asked to look inside my closet.  I wonder why?  A good scare for Halloween?

Looks okay enough to me. You should see my cupboard. It is so messy, you wouldn't be able find a thing. :)
And I hate throwing things out so I have stacks and stacks of clothes that I no longer wear or don't fit me anymore. Haha

I did not let you see my cupboard. Or worse, the baskets under my bed!

I'm sorry, Who said you could photograph MY closet?!

I see lots of white. Do you love white shirts? There is something about the change in seasons that always leaves me wanting a fresh start. I think it easily applies to hairstyles, clothes, accessories - you know, the easy swaps. Not so easy on the budget, however:)

i think that looks very organized! oh, ya. look who's talking :). heh. white is together. stripes are together. just be grateful that you have fashion sense. for me, it's like which t-shirt for today? tie dye, plain or disney character? white? labor day? what?

Funny, I have a white shirt obsession. I don't necessarily wear them (white does not look great on me, either), but I love the idea of them.

I get in the mood to sew when the seasons change, too. Even though I never do. Kind of like my white shirt problem.

Ooh, I love shopping with someone else's money. Just ask Lorinda.
