I've gone through that, too. I mean, honestly, how often do we go out since Konocti closed, and the lake house was sold?
What I did was decided to keep 4 nice outfits.
1 in case of a real dress-up event, such as a wedding.
2 for something more like a baby shower, or if someone wins an award. Or, maybe an evening event like a dinner-show.
And, a 4th misc. outfit that would work for a luncheon, a photo shoot, or something that you'd wear if you were to be filmed.
I kept a very nice black blouse, and matching slacks, etc.
Tip: Keep a couple of little jackets that are colored, such as a red one, yellow one, and blue one. 3 pieces can make a neutral color, such as black basics, into 3 different looking outfits.
I kept the wedding outfit that I bought for Ds's wedding. It's pastel for the spring, daytime wedding, and there's a matching hat and purse with it.
I kept a less fancy outfit that is a multicolored, blousy top, which can be worn with nice pants.
And, I kept a 'Christmas' outfit which is a little heavier. It's cocoa colored, has a red scarf with it, as well as a very pretty coat, and pair of low heeled, ankle high only boots. I've given up on heels, darn it, lol!
Have a great coming week!
