IT'S A SHAME

You know the drill.

Late night, vodka tonic overload, random boys, beer goggles, P.D.A., sunrise in a strange bed with a strange guy, and cotton mouth.

Good times.

As you slip on last night's crumpled outfit, bracing yourself for the dreaded walk of shame, you pray no one sees you. Inevitably, your prayers go unheard.

Since five bucks says this situation will arise again, it's best to be prepared. At least that's Urban Aid's philosophy and their reason for creating the "SHAME ON YOU KIT".

Specially made for the aftermath of such crazy nights, the pack includes a mini toothbrush and toothpaste (for that not-so-fresh feeling), a one-size-fits-all thong (for that other not-so-fresh feeling), three condoms (better safe than sorry), one emergency, phone card (dude, where's my car?), pain reliever (I have a headache this big), and one Leave behind note (thanks for the memories).

So you have all the necessary tools to walk the walk with a little less shame.

yeahhhhhh, I love shopping the Goodwill for vintage treasures . . . I take them to a nice Indian tailor who refashions them for me. Long dresses and skirts become short, sizes are changed, etcetera . . . this way I know that, when I go to a big event, I'll never be wearing the same dress the other women in the room are wearing!!!

Ladies,
With lots of imagination and creativity there are lots you could do with your old wardrobe esp the ones you spent a fortune on and never wore ..I sew, knit, crotchet..and recyle all my clothes into something completely different with those skills... an expensive French lace gathered skirt has been tranformed into an elegant dress which is now used over a fitted shocking pink strap shift to give a sense of mystery and excitement; I unpicked and reknitted a jumper into a dress, deconstruct a kimono into a two piece outfit because you could never find such beautiful rare silk again. Some of my jeans are today a pair of shorts with the bottom half turned to halters, or you could tranform a pair of jeans into skirt with gusseted material in between...there are infinite possibilities that you could do to old and out of style clothes if you learn how to unpick, deconstruct and sew...lost skills to women in this age and time of instant purchase and disposal..I take such pleasure in recycling and am thinking of doing it as a creative business at some stage..
someone's waste is another's treasure..

Tallblonde I'm with you. I have a classic dress I bought in 1980 and paid alot of money for at a time when I was on a tight budget. I love it...never wear it, but just can't part with it! LOL
And like you...many pairs of jeans from changing sizes.
I always have good intentions of following the "if you haven't worn it in 2 yrs, give it to the salvation army" rule, but I'm a pack rat! What can I say! :-)
But I really do need to go through it and discard.

Hey ladies,

As the now "ex" girlfriend of a rich man you can be sure my closet is stuffed. But mostly it's stuffed with suits . . . suits I bought, suits he bought, my mom's old suits, and suits I found at the Goodwill. Suits suits suits. And turtlenecks. Lots of turtlenecks.

Most of my fall wardrobe came from Hugo Boss: great lines, good design that crosses over well between business, casual and dressy. I'm a busy gal and my clothes need to multitask! If I need to change my look I either put on/take off my jacket and change my shoes :-)

Which brings me to shoes. I'm afraid to count them. Thank GOD for DSW Shoe Warehouse. I realize most of them were purchased in grief over some man, and this time is no exception: I just bought 4 pair of boots! One of them is a pair of black, thigh high leather stillettos that HE WILL NEVER SEE ME IN (the LAST time we broke up I paid boutique-retail for a little pair of Giusseppe Zannoti bejeweled stillettos. My VISA is still groaning from that one!).

I don't keep old clothes; to this date I don't think I - - - wait, let me take that back. I think I might still have a lacy skirt from my senior class trip to Paris in '84. And I still have my letter jacket (I was a pompom girl, yes, how did you guess! I was a pompom girl AND a weirdo-brain AND a theater geek, which just CONFUSED everyone, so I had few friends and couldn't get a date to save my life so don't hate me OK?).

I don't keep old jeans, don't really care for them (what freak ever said they were "comfortable?" the seams bind, and the really tight ones are just invitations to a yeast infection). I just bought two pair that have low waistlines and lycra in them, so they're OK.

And what's with clothing sizes these days? Size ZERO? Size TWO? I am NOT a freaking size TWO or ZERO, these people are HIGH. (I swear, only in America can a size 14 say she's an 8! It's called vanity sizing).

I bought clothes for my 13 year old daughter today for a meeting she has with a modeling agent this Thursday. She's taller than me, with size 9 1/2 feet and she has to buy in the adult section, and at mostly retail because she's pre-teen picky. And she's still growing, GOD I'M GONNA GO BROKE . . .

Leave it to NYC to come up with Clothes or something equally delicious. We ALL should have at least one little black dress. Me i have several of all styles.
Those are something a woman should never be without..LOL

A good suit length blazer which you can wear with almost anything is essential. I have a brown tweed with velvet collar that is so old but yet still in style. With jeans it looks awesome. High heels and you can go almost anywhere. Never forget those heels they dress up even the best pants.

Every 2/3 yrs i get in my closet and decide if i haven't worn it more than once in those yrs to get rid of it. I pack everything and send to the salvation army.

I am like you Butter i have a few pair of jeans that fit like a glove and still have plenty of material. They are hard to get rid of.

As much as i hate scrubs i have a pair of hospital scrubs i got 13 yrs ago. They are big but long enough and worn so thin they have holes in the crotch and so thin they will evaporate one day. I still wear them on a daily basis. One day i will have to just rip them up so i can't wear them anymore.

Oh...I like this thread!!!!

I have a few purses that I have hung onto since the 70's..and now my daughter is using them..I grew up in Miami Beach..there are a lot of great shops there..and in the 70's there was a very big Hippy population,,so there were a lot of stores with those type of styles..belts purses..etc..lots of beads etc.I had a couple of handbags that were really cute..Im glad I hung onto those,,so is my daughter.
The other was my silver jewelry I wore back in the 70's again my daughter now has confiscated..lol.

For winter..its definately my boots..and my leather jacket..I have 2, one for the back of a Harley..the other on is more of a dress style.You have to have that special one for the bike y.a know..one never knows when they will be thrown off..lmoa...
Oh and thje other thing Im digging out for winter....a nice warm quilt..Nothing like a nice handmade quilt to snuggle up in the winter with...errr..well of course made big enough for 2.

I cant ever part with a great pair of jeans...the more worn out they are the better the fit.
