And The Culling continues! I've had this collared shirt from GAP for a few years now. I may have thrifted it at one point and nabbed it because it was something I thought I could wear when I taught. PLUS it's a collared shirt without buttons! And I "hate" button down shirts, you guys. By "hate" I mean "I wish I could wear them without having to get them two sized bigger so they don't pucker across my boob area."
Turns out, I don't like collared shirts anyway, and I quite forgot that I had this one to begin with. I paired it with this selfmade skirt with a pretty crane pattern and my trusty kissing birds belt to hide the unsightly elastic waist. Though I got lots of compliments at work, I'm relegating this top to my growing give away pile and hopefully replacing it with something a bit more form fitting and flattering.
I'm so happy that lots of you think The Culling is a great idea! I've become a much more selective shopper since I went on my 6-Month Challenge a couple years ago, and I now really think about what I buy. It still pains me (most times) to spend what I think is tons of money on clothing, especially because I've lived on a grad student budget for almost a decade, but I just have to remind myself that quality trumps quantity any day!
