think like an Italian

Think back to Italy. Women in perfectly cut clothing. Not a lot of clothing either – just well-done items of quality.

Look into my closet. Too much stuff. Needs to fit better. Need less stuff. Need to focus on Italian style.

So my goal for this summer will be to weed out the dregs in my wardrobe – not the right color, things that are too big, whatever. If I pull it out and I don’t absolutely think it fits this Italian criteria, it goes. Either into storage if it’s too big, or to goodwill if it’s not the right color.

Same with accessories and shoes. Shop for quality, not quantity. Yes, I can get another pair of shoes – and I know which ones I want (the Aerosoles Picnic, probably in silver). But that means those other shoes need to go. You know the ones, the horsey black walking sandals. And the pink ‘what was I thinking’ too-tight wal-mart specials.

Same goes for sewing – I need to focus on quality and details. SLOW down.

I'm Ann. I've been sewing since I was 9. My first project was a denim wrap skirt. Thrifting is a way of life for me - both eco-chic and financially savvy.
