QUESTION:Closet Pain

30 Jan

I got this question: “What does one do with a collection of nice pants that fit several years ago? Is there any going back? Are there any effective tactics for dealing with the remorse of seeing those pants every morning???”

My answer is this:  if they haven’t fit in several years, chances are, without a true dedication to get back into them, they may not fit. And that’s A-OKAY. Over time, our lives change and so do our bodies.  And they go bigger and smaller. But rather than being haunted over these pants that don’t fit, give them to an organization like Dress for Success and revel in the fact that you get to buy new clothes!  The most important thing is to remember that it’s sooooo not about what fits and doesn’t.  We can find clothes to fit and make us look HOT in any size (and I know you – you’re hot!).  It’s more about just accepting how things have changed and being okay with it.

I want you to be okay with the changes and not torture yourself every time you open your closet.

There are plenty of things in life that cause pain – pants shouldn’t be one of them.

    I’m so glad you mentioned Dress For Sucess. It’s a great organization and I send many women there to be fitted for business clothes. Please support them with your donations of clothes! Yea!
