WWYD w/old work clothes?

I need to do some spring cleaning in my closet. When I worked, I pretty much just wore slacks and nice tops and sweaters. I've been SAH for 6 months and haven't worn slacks once. I still wear pretty much all of my work shirts, they look nice with jeans and cute flats. I have 8 pairs of relatively nice slacks [mostly from Anne Taylor and Banana Republic] and I think I could get rid of them but I'm nervous for some strange reason. If I were to go to a wedding or nice dinner with DH, I wouldn't wear slacks. I'd buy something new, most likely a dress or skirt. There's really no reason for me to keep them. Right? I need a little push to get rid of them even though I'm pretty sure I don't need them anymore. If you worked in an office before SAH, did you get rid of your work clothes??

  • As of right now I have kept everything.  The tops I still wear regularly, dress skirts and slacks I wear on occasion.  I still have several blazers that I never wear though.

     Personally, I would keep at least 2 pairs of slacks, lik

  • Yeah, I donated everything to a charity that helps women get jobs. I'm totally blanking on the name. After I had DS I sort of realized that 1. It would be a loooong time before I was *that*skinny again and 2. I had no plans to go back to work and they wer

  • I still have most of mine, but I wear slacks to church pretty often...you could donate them to Dress for Success or an organization like it though.
