^ That would be OK All plans should be flexible ... no reason not to pull something else into your scheme if it works

Okay, so I'm really glad I'm going to analyze my wardrobe for various reasons. 1. I'm pretty broke and don't want to buy anything new until AFTER Christmas. 2. I get so bored with my clothes, yet I have so many things I haven't worn or don't wear very often. I'm hoping this will challenge me to use what I have rather than buy new things.

Starting with shoes & purses since that'll be easier for me. I'll edit this to add photos when I can.

Shoes:
- brown leather Steve Madden boots
- black leather Steve Madden boots
- brown Nine West ankle boots
- black Coach maryjanes
- purple Nine West heels
- brown Nine West t-straps
- black Nine West flats







Tights:
- black Betsey Johnson tights (one pair solid, one pair thinly ribbed)
- gray Forever 21 tights, ribbed
- brown herringbone Gap tights
- purple DKNY tights

Leggings:
- black American Apparel leggings
- gray ribbed leggings from Wal-Mart (which funny enough are my absolute favorite)

Purses:

- black purse (I don't know what brand it is)
- purple Kenneth Cole purse
- red Isaac Mizrahi for Target purse
- orange Kate Spade envelope clutch
- navy blue Marc Jacobs envelope clutch
- brown Marc by Marc Jacobs purse

CaraMia: I think you'll be able to put together some great outfits with what you have. You have great accessories do work with. In terms of bottoms, what do you normally work with? Skirts, jeans, trousers?

jaydotcee - I usually wear skirts, and I've added some to my list. I don't have any real pants besides jeans really, except for some khaki MBMJ pants, which I don't feel like wearing in the winter. In terms of quality, I think my accessories are of better quality than my clothes. Most of my clothes are from Forever 21 haha.

I have some bright yellow patent leather flats, mustardy flats, a yellow leather wristlet (it's tiny though), & one yellow t-shirt. And as mentioned above, I have a yellow mini skirt I want to wear more often. Perhaps all of this should've been added to my list... I didn't realize I can't edit my posts.

I would make yellow one of your key colors then ...

Regular members can edit for 10 minutes after each post. If you want to add to your list, maybe you can make a new one based on the old one, and then I can delete the old one ...

I like the idea of choosing a key color, especially since that jacket is something I've been wearing constantly since I bought it last month or so.

Well then I'll work on a more complete list with photos & post that. Probably won't get a chance to do so until after Thanksgiving-madness, but I will hopefully post an outfit before then. Thank you.

I've posted in here a million times today, but I already put together an outfit using most of what I listed. The night before Thanksgiving everyone goes out in my town, & I'm no different. I'll be wearing this:

Crappy photo:



Yet another crappy photo in which I try to show you my huge ring:



Worn with this:



Items:
Dress: Forever 21
Cardigan: J Crew Cashmere (super warm!)
Tights: I think they're Betsey Johnson, but I could be wrong
Boots: Steve Madden
Belt: Forever 21
Ring: Banana Republic
Clutch: Marc Jacobs

I'd love to see other people trying this out!

A yellow bag would be fun ...

A statement black necklace with your yellow coat would look great. Love the buttons!

Simple outfit. I'm so glad I made a list of items, because now it's kind of forcing me to use those things.



Ack, I really need to clean my mirror! Anyway, American Apparel v-neck, black Target cardigan, J Brand skinnies, Steve Madden boots.

I'm attempting decluttering my wardrobe. I moved countries and have decided to stay on in England which means that I barely have any use for summer clothes. Anyone doing the same?

I love the idea of this thread so much. I hope we can revive it? I'll post a list and photos of my spring wardrobe when the time comes and try to work with that next season!
