The Amazing Bedroom Closet!
Saturday, August 28, 2010
My husband and I had a discussion today as we sorted through clothes to give to charity.
It was about the amazing, magical closet in our bedroom. Somehow it seems to be stretching all of my clothes all out of proportion.
As I went through one item after another I found fewer and fewer items that fit. While the weight hasn't shifted, the size obviously has!
Two months ago I purchased two suits with size 22W skirts because that was what fit my hips. At this point 18W are too large...not by much, but they are. It looks like I need to spend money on a tailor to fit all my new skirts!
I put on a new dress that I *just* purchased for school. It arrived today in an 18W. I felt like I was wearing a tent! It's going back. No amount of tailoring will make it fit.
Then we turned to work on my husband's side of the closet and found that the closet seemed to work differently on his side. Item after item seemed smaller somehow. The amazing, magical closet must have taken the size from his clothes and given them to mine.
I now have to replace his shirts with two sizes larger, but the process has gotten him to realize the choices he has been making were not necessarily the best. Now he's taking a step in the right direction.
