I bought this leather coat last year, when it was way too hot for me to wear it since it was one of California's warmest winters.. This year, we've had a few days of cooler weather but still not cold enough to wear it as a jacket. So I figure instead of letting it sit in my closet, why don't I wear it as a vest.
Speaking of giving something a second life, this sweater dress was sitting in my donate pile. There's nothing wrong with the dress but I just did love it anymore. There's ribbing in the middle which draws attention to an area that I prefer not to highlight. When I was trying to figure out what to pair with this vest, I wanted to swear a dress with it and decided to give this dress another try to decide if I was keeping it. Trying to use it again confirmed that I do not love it anymore and will be going to a home that would appreciate it more.
How do you decide when it's time for an item to go donate or for sale? Also how do you decide which pile it goes into?
