    I would like a wardrobe make over as I wear a full length leg brace on my left leg all the time to get around with & it is hard to find things that look nice on me & doesn’t accentuate the brace being so big. Plus I have to buy larger sizes to fit the brace so they fit me real loose elsewhere.

    The one item in my closet that I can’t imagine parting with is a beautiful rayon “big shirt” with a tropical motif in turquoise, black, greens and a bit of red. The design is stylized with modern looking “lilly pad” type leaves, birds and flowers – it sounds kind of loud and ugly, but I always feel like I’m on vacation when I wear it – and get compliments on it all the time – it’s pretty old…but a “go to”in the sprint and summer!

    The one item that I can’t live without is my Soft Surrounding white tunic topic made of soft linen and cotton. It is a beautiful piece of clothing and everytime I wear I get several compliments. It has beads throughout and it magically bounces the beams of light off your skin. My wardrobe really needs a makerover because I have several sizes of clothes stuck all in the same closet. The size range goes from 4 to 16. I had a knee replacement in November of 2009 and gained a lot of weight. Now I’m in the process of taking it off again. I’m in a constant state of transition. However, I will not give up my white flowing tunic shirt from Soft Surroundings.

    I could *never* part with my calf length black suede skirt. I once teasingly told a physician colleague in a meeting who remarked on me wearing leather to work at my age (ahem) that my skirt was older than she was, which was likely true.
    And so it is, but the skirt is just amazing–buttery soft suede, wonderful with flat boots, full enough to twirl and I do still twirl when I feel the urge to, of course!
    Very dignified with the correct blazer but I can sexy it up with the right silky blouse.
    I’d probably rescue this skirt in a house fire, after I rescued my daughter and my dog of course.

    Hello, The one item that I really cannot do without is my black blazer. This item makes really good use of all the camis, blouses, and tops in bright vibrant colors to dress it up or down. Black pants and skirts also can be slipped on on those days to match it. I am now in my sixties and working fulltime in the mental health field. My hubby has not been able to work for nine years due to many health problems. Therefore, I try and make my wardrobe stretch……..so some basic pieces that go with everything is the name of the game! But I always could use some help with editing my wardrobe to make it practical, pretty and positive as I have to cheer my clients up too on a daily basis!

    I have a leather jacket I purchased in the 90’s and the majority of people always comment on it, saying wow, I love you jacket, it is waist length, with fringes, yes fringes, you have to see it to appreciate it, although thoughout the years going through my closet I always put it back and still wear it in the spring and cool summer nights, I am open for your advice and willing to part with whatever your expert advice is, I cannot afford to go out and buy new clothes so if I win you will notice alot of older clothes, winning this wold be a Godsent to me, to say I need a new wardrobe is an understatement, I am keeping my fingers crossed and yes, if you think it is time for me to part with my favorite leather I will, a tear or two may come, but, I bounce back quickly, I could not believe looking at new clothes in my closet, it has been along time since I bought new clothes and it would make me feel like a new woman, and that I need.

A few weeks later, I wore it to my 35th College Reunion class dinner. A few weeks after that, I wore it to the hospital to cheer up my ailing Mom. A few days later, I wore it to deliver her eulogy.

I may not wear it again, but I won’t part with it either.

    The one item in my wardrobe that is timeless and never fails me, is my black suit jacket. I bought it years ago at a T.J. Maxx and I use it to dress up an outfit, to wear over a tank top when the weather may get cool later that evening, or as a compliment to an outfit that is a bit more casual. It has really come in handy over the years.

    I cannot part with my Ralph Lauren Reversible Vest, with amazing pockets etc. Black on one side….Light Brown on the other. The pockets are wonderful. Amazing for traveling over a sweater, blouse, short or long sleeve. Wore it all the time on my trip to Italy!!

    As my figure has changed I keep saving old clothes that will never look good again on me. I need to weed these out and still keep a youthful looking wardrobe. I buy heels and then hate them and never wear them.

    I can’t part with anything. I keep all my clothes in hopes that they will fit one day and make bad fashion choices that do not fit my body type. I need help! But if I had to pick one thing (or one category) it is my coats

    If I could tell you that, I wouldn’t need the help! I have WAY too many things I can’t part with — from trips to other countries, from fat years, from skinny years — I just have WAY too much in my closet and NEED somebody to tell me how to eliminate and mix/match. PLEASE help!

    Leggings from LL Bean – slim-fit – I have a black pair and a brown pair. Depending on how I accessorize them, them go from work (newspaper) to the theater (to review) to yoga class (to teach), and everywhere in between. Plus, they travel, of course, like a dream.
    Pick me! My wardrobe is a mess.

    I have 2 things-a beautiful summer skirt made of woven silk from Ralph Lauren and a timeless madras cotton skirt fromRalph Lauren. Both of them were expensive, bought as treats, and made me feel great when I wore them. I can’t even begin to fit into them now, but looking at them every now and again makes me feel good.
