So it’s that time of year again and all the major retailers are clearing the rails of last winter’s dregs in order to make space for some sharp spring threads. I had a big spring clean of my wardrobe last weekend as some of my clothes were looking quite shabby and nobody really needs four identical black nylon Primark jumpers (nice I know).
I filled up three big carrier bags for the charity shop and put some of my nicer cast offs on eBay. The last time I did that I managed to raise £70 which was put towards promptly filling my wardrobe up again!
With a now fairly large gap in my wardrobe, I’m definitely looking to fill it up with some fresher pieces, new shapes and more spring-friendly colours.
I’ve laid out my wish list below:
I made a promise to myself I’d steer clear of black. After throwing out a huge amount of black, grey and brown items of clothing, I realised I had apparently amassed the wardrobe of an 80 year old rural-living man.
I’m pretty happy with my picks above – I think there’s a good mix of fresh colours for Spring and some new styles to try out. We’ll have to see how well the eBaying goes before I hit ‘purchase’ on this lot though…
