Goodbye skinny jeans...

Part of the recent cleaning of our house (including rearranging our office) was me going throu old clothes. Really this is just giving me a reason to buy new clothes. But it was about time. I have done this a few times in the past few years but a few things always seem to slip through the donate pile and end up back in my closet (or a tupperware moving bin).
If this shirt still fit me, I would still wear it. It doesn't. That's because I wore this in my senior pictures. From high school. IN 1998!!!
Also saying goodbye and what I consider my 'skinny jeans.' You know the ones- they stay at the back of the closet and after an especially encouraging shopping trip or week of workouts you try them on one more time. Well, mine actually fit! IF I wear them like they are suppossed to be worn. Not 3 1/2 inches lower on my hips like I wore them when I bought them. In addition to the unfortunate mom-jean cut of these 1999 Abercrombies (shudder), V told me that the color would only be appropriate to wear today if I grew a mullet. These MUST go to make room for a nice pair of khakis or cute skirt in the closet. Turtle seems to agree (and yes, she does have a sock turned t-shirt and pearls on. The shirt to help her cuts heal and the pearls + bow just for fun). Finally, these beasts must play a role in what stays in my closet beyond better judgment. How can I throw out this silver sequined halter when Seymour seems to love it so much?

I still have a white dress that I wore to my 8th grade graduation AND my confirmation as a junior in high school (same dress both occassions). It is cotton, empire waist with sleeves. Also, it BARELY covers my underwear and my chest (yes my little chest) pops out the top. YAY for old clothes that we can't throw away!

Although, I recently decided I would take all of my old bridesmaids dresses and makes pillows out of them! I hate throwing them out!

Does this mean I can empty your closet at home? There may be things in there from Junior High!
