Now since my work wardrobe differs totally from what I wear at home i-e Pakistani Clothes, I need a to keep two different wardrobes, but I’ll keep it to work here. A lot of pieces need to go from both wardrobes.


  • Black (needs to be replaced)
  • White studs
  • Teal skinny (need to lose weight for this one)
  • Another White that my husband got me.. it’s too bulky and not my style but can’t discard it. Hubs will be offended 🙂
  • A blue one which basically doesn’t go with anything but again hubby got it so no discarding it.

What Needs to go:

  1. No. 12, Black Jeans.
  2. No. 14. A few pairs of leggings
  3. Several of the tops

Gaps that need to be filled:

  1. A nice pair of White /Offwhite Pants
  2. A black dress
  3. A dress in a nice summer color
  4. Outerwear: Brown / Beige / Fawn Cardigan or jacket
  5. Cardigan or jacket in Black and White stripes or houndtooth
  6. White / Offwhite Jacket
  7. Lightweight Cardigan or Jacket in a pretty Summer color
  8. Two Pairs of Shoes: One beige / Nude.. and one in a bright color.
  9. Handbags: One Nude and one in a bright color (maybe wedges)
  10. A couple of maxi skirts maybe.

Sigh. I think the post is as haphazard as my wardrobe is.

I wonder if I post images on here? I am ‘sort of’ new to wordpress so any help would be appreciated!
