It’s amazing the things you find in your closet when it’s time to empty it out. I’ve been pulling things out of my closet this last week because we are moving soon. Yes, we are moving… back to the US. I can’t give specifics yet, but we are going to be leaving within the next few weeks. I know I’m going to miss Germany, but something tells me I won’t be away for long.
My closet… well, since I emptied it about a year and a half ago to move here from San Francisco, and whittled my wardrobe down to two suitcases, I’ve gotten one of these fears about parting with my clothes. Kind of like when you get a bad haircut and develop an aversion to the hair salon. I miss my old clothes. So now I’m going to wear the clothes I never wear and see if they are really transcontinental move worthy. Here I’m wearing a few things I’ll never part with, a 1940′s handmade blouse in the perfect color for me, a nice rust. My favorite white Ferragamo belt (and continuing with the matchy-matchy theme) my white Jeffery Campbell 3 strap Mary Janes. The non-favorite and soon to be a new regular in my wardrobe line up (it’s the second time I wore these this week) is a pair of vintage stirrup gingham trousers. I didn’t utilize the stirrups and instead rolled them up as I felt it would be more summery. I love the way they fit so perfectly and I also love the exposed zippers. They came from the flea market last year… who knows why it’s taken so long for me to bring them out. Maybe they just landed in the back of the closet, just waiting to be rediscovered.
