The cooler weather is finally here and time to pull out the jumpers and jeans! I have been making over the wardrobes of numerous ladies and so over the Easter Long Weekend I decided to give my own wardrobe a makeover and declutter!
I recently saw this post below on social media and thought wow I am doing my bit by recycling. BTW (by the way) if you don’t think these stats are accurate they are read the full article How much water does it take to make a pair of jeans here.
After the declutter, I discovered that I have around 19 pairs of denim jeans. A guy friend asked me, Why do I have so many? When you can nab a pair of $200 designer jeans at Raid My Wardrobe for a just $20 you start to accumulate a collection. You have the:
– dark denim pair
– white denim
– white with rips
– black skinny pair
– black skinny with rips
– mid blue pair
– mid blue with holes
– light blue pair
– charcoal pair
– boot leg pair
– bleached pair
– ones with multiple pockets
– drop crotch pair
– relaxed boyfriend pair
– high waist pair
And the list goes on……no pair are the same they each have their own unique characteristics and are worn at different occasions.
And so I asked myself the question How many pairs of jeans are too many to own? If we really only wear 20% of our wardrobe on rotation then do I really need the other 15 pairs of jeans.
So, I set myself a challenge. For the next 19 days I am to wear a different pair of jeans each day and decide which ones stay and which ones go. It has been quite a fun challenge really and if you are following us on social media Facebook or Instagram you’ll get to see the different pairs I am wearing each day and vote for your favourites. So far I have only ditched 2 pairs!
So hit reply and tell me how many pairs of jeans do you own? If you are needing more then come check our next event out on Sunday 26th May.
And if you have heaps like me, do you want to join in this #jeanchallenge with me?
Much, much love to you,
