Love it or Lose it Challenge, week 3 of 4

Love it or Lose it


Hello ladies! Katie P here, from Food, Wine, & Mod Podge, for Week 3 of Love It or Lose It. How did your week go?




For a rundown of Love It or Lose It, check out the rules here.


I had a pretty good week myself. I worked two Love It or Lose It tops into my clothing rotation, and made some headway! Now here we go!

Item #1




Number 6 full


Why I like this sweater:

It's lightweight, so good for spring months.
It's got a cute pink argyle detail.




Number 6 argyle


Why I don't wear this sweater:

Since it is lightweight, I recall the ends of the sleeves stretching out a little bit. It's also a little short, but that's the story of my clothing life.

The Verdict:

I wore this shirt on the weekend with a cute white-with-teensy-little-pink-polka-dots long cami underneath, which matched the pink in the argyle perfectly, and solved the length problem. And the thinness issue? All in my head. It happens sometimes. Love it again!


Item #2




Number 7 full


Why I love this shirt:

I love this shirt so much. When I bought it, it was the perfect length, the perfect fit, and the row of sequins along the collar gave just the perfect amount of sparkle without appearing bedazzled.

Why I don't wear this shirt:

This shirt has just been loved a little too much. The black has faded, there is a little hole in the back from when my cat jumped on me, and after so many washes, the length has shortened. Basically, it's just time to part ways.

The Verdict:

I knew before even putting it on that it was time to move this out of my closet. It served me well, but I don't wear it anymore because it just isn't nice and classy anymore. I did try it on for one last hurrah, but changed before leaving the house. So in a way, still Love It, but time to Lose It.


Recap




Week 3 summary


Not a bad week! I realized I was overlooking a great little sweater, and finally came to terms with parting with an old love.

As a fun twist, the hubby decided with all this closet-cleaning that maybe he too should take a stab at it!

I love what you are doing - nothing is better than getting rid of old stuff. I am trying to do the same thing, but by re-using them for something else. Check out my first attempt:

I love this series! it's amusing, why we keep certain pieces of clothing, isn't it?
