Well hello! Katie P here, from Food, Wine, & Mod Podge! How did Week 2 of Love It or Lose It go for you? If you’re just joining us for the first time for this challenge, you can go here for the full rundown!
This week, with all the New Year’s resolution motivation flying around, I felt particularly adventurous and chose three items for the week.
What I like about this jacket:
It came with a suit that I absolutely loved. In fact, it was the first suit I ever purchased. I felt unstoppable in it. But over the years the pants got a little too tight (and with pinstripes, even a little too tight looks awful). I still held on to the jacket though, to wear as a blazer with nice jeans.
Why I don’t wear this jacket:
I rarely find myself needing to wear a blazer with jeans, and it’s not the nicest material (being my first suit purchase, it wasn’t very expensive).
Lose it. 100% gone. It’s been so long since I’ve worn it, that I see now how poorly it fits, and probably how poorly it has always fit. But since it was my first suit, I didn’t know any better! Hopefully it will make some other girl happy as her first suit before she too knows any better.
Why I like it:
I love argyle.
I love grey.
Why I don’t wear it:
It’s a wee bit low cut for me, and a little short. But that’s it. Wait, why I was I overlooking it again?
Cream lace cami does the trick perfectly! Love it again!
Now on to the last item, #3!
Why I like this top:
It’s long. And I’m tall. I feel like I said this before, like last week…
Why I don’t wear it:
Exactly the same reason I don’t wear the other long top I decided to lose just last week! I like the concept of the top so much (length, ruching up the sides, etc.) but in reality, it is just not flattering.
No pictures necessary, it’s time to part ways!
This week, two pieces found their way to the charity bag, and my closet got a little bit more space. But I also got one piece back into my clothing rotation!
