In readiness for her upcoming move, Sally sorted through her wardrobe (closet) and came up with 3 large sacks of clothes to be given away. This inspired her to ask:
1. Are you a hoarder, or are you good at sorting and clearing?
I tend to follow the same pattern. I let new clothes slowly accumulate in my closet. Then when things become too jam-packed (usually every few years), I get rid of the stuff I no longer really wear. (By the way, the picture on the upper left is, sadly, not my closet. Mine is not nearly so stream-lined and organized.)
2. What is the oddest garment you possess and why?
Back in the day, I used to be into wacky socks. I never could bring myself to get rid of the Fonzie socks. Here they are:
3. Do you have a favorite look/color?
I go for the casual, outdoorsy look. I recently bought some comfy Privo shoes which I've even been wearing to work. They look like this:
4. Thrift/Charity shops, love them or hate them?
I love giving my old clothes, etc. to them. I don't usually buy there unless I am looking for a specific costume-type item.
5. Money is no object, what one item would you buy?
Ah... but money IS an object! I am thinking about how my daughter and I wandered into a Saks Fifth Avenue store in Portland a few weeks ago and saw a pair of shoes for $450.00. We both commented on how ridiculous we thought it would be to spend such an amount on shoes -- and couldn't one really buy lesser shoes and give the rest of the money to a good cause?
