It’s officially fall! It’s that time of year I pull out my denim shorts, crop tops, and fringed skirts to make way for oversized knits, long jackets, and blanket scarves. I’m in the midst of yet another closet cleanse, and currently in that dreaded point in the process where all of my clothes are on the floor, waiting to be separated in “Yay” or “Nay” piles.
If you need help deciding what to do with your “Nay” pile, read on – I’ve got some closet fall overhaul tips for you!
I have this compulsive habit to blurt out, “Guess how much I bought this for?” when I am particularly happy with a purchase. I haven’t been shopping very much this summer, due to a recent shopping ban I put myself on during July. I promised myself it would be out with the old before it was in with the new again, so after some closet cleansing I treated myself to an afternoon at Turnabout Consignment this past weekend.
I shopped the Plenty Warehouse Sale this past Thursday night and got a sneak peek of the goods on sale this Easter long weekend. I remember 5 years ago when the sale was at a much smaller space on what is now Brassneck Brewery on Main Street; now, the sale sprawls over 20,000 square feet at the Vancouver Convention Centre, jam packed with racks of heavily discounted clothes, shoes, purses, and accessories. So, like a kid in a candy store, I flipped through each rack, table, and bin, getting the most of the calm before the madness prior to the sale.
