  • Aside from my two least-worn items above, everything else was worn at least twice.  
  • The turtleneck vest/sweater is now in my giveaway pile. It's too short.
  • Skinny jeans are super-versatile. 
  • Sleeveless shift dresses really are more of a spring/summer item. So are nude pumps.
  • Seriously considering doing away with these black booties, too.  Despite all my efforts, they are not comfortable at all.  Since they were a hand-me-down, I'll be passing them down again. I do sort of like the style, so I may look for a comfortable pair to replace them.
  • I picked a crap-load of tops. Most of them only got worn 2-3 times.
  • Flat boots are a major closet workhorse for both casual and office wear. If you don't have some, get some.
Favorite outfits: 6, 17, 19, 27
