The lovely Kate at Make Do Style recently composed a 'Quality v Quantity 2009 Top Ten List and with her other post, 'Tinsel & Champagne' which gave same great tips, really got me thinking about what I have on the list and what I don't have.
Here are some of my most covetable pieces, numbered to Kates list:
Ossie Clark for Radley dress, number 8
My Diana Ring, number 5Black Pencil skirt, nearly on the list!
Chanel Bag, number 2
Here is her list in full:
1. A watch
2. A bag
3. A scarf
4. Pearl necklace
5. Beautiful jewellery
6. A beautiful or timeless coat
7. Great pair of shoes
8. A gorgeous dress
9. White shirt
10. Great pair of jeans
And the nearly there... a pair of black trousers, a pencil skirt, a Chanel suit and a cashmere sweater.
So armed with such useful information, I see that I am devoid of.........
1. A watch
I do have numbers 4, 9 and 10, but not pictured. So, my wishlist for 2010 is this so far........
1. A watch (maybe a Birthday present)
2. For Summer 2010-A pair of skinny cropped jeans
3. For Winter 2010- A black cashmere jumper (or merino wool will suffice)
After sorting out my wardrobe earlier, I have plenty dresses, jackets, blazers, blouses, tops, tees, cardigans and jumpers-well lucky me, not much to have to scour for next year-I may have a real chance of following Kates advice of trying to save, but with a teenage son who is beginning to acquire his style, I think my pounds and pennies could well be going in his direction, LOL!!
How about you doing the list-Make Do Style of course-it really helps to fill in the blanks of what is or isn't in the wardrobe!!
