I like to do this regularly as it helps me refine my style, allows me to see what regularly gets worn, who are the key players and what features make them the workhorses in my closet.
My wardrobe is kept small...the closet is also small and I share it with my husband! One day we will redo it and install some features that will improve its storage capacity...in 1913 a "pedestrian bungalow owner" would not have had many clothes...daytime wear (house dresses) and Sunday best.
First on the chopping block are the scarves...
Too many scarves and they were spilling off the shelf in my bedside cabinet
not enough space so some had to go...
7 scarves were donated to the charity shop and two were consigned.
Silk Hermes collection
(which I wear mostly in the Spring and Summer)
Three orange boxes
Small square purchased in Paris
Black and White silk from Vancouver Hermes store
The original from the San Francisco Hermes shop.
some worn in summer and some in the Fall and Winter
Large white scarf (shawl size) from the Monoprix
St Germain, Paris
Burberry print infinity scarf
Two Linen scarves:
black and grey
blue and white
(purchased at the Pharmasave in Oak Bay)
(gift from my husband)
I tend to wear the Burberry cashmere all through the Fall and Winter as it offers warmth and is so cozy and goes with my wine coloured puffer coat.
That's all the scarves and they neatly fit inside the cabinet now with some "breathing room!"
The new Bosch dishwasher arrived and was installed today...
looking forward to clean dishes and no more leaks!
I am taking a wreath making workshop this week with our lovely DIL
Hopefully my efforts will be worthy of a photo and if the wreath looks OK
I will share it here in a future post.
Have you started decorating for Christmas?
For some strange reason this year I feel like putting up our decorations and tree already and it is not even December!
I recently read this book the subject matter was quite disturbing...
extremely well written but rather graphic
a NY Times bestseller.
I'm reading a much lighter book right now...
Set in London and the South of France...
love the style in which it is written
just the thing to put a smile on my face as I sit with my mug of tea on these rainy afternoons.
What is new with you and
what are you reading?
