Friday Five It's all about the look

Sally posted this excellent FF: "In readiness for my move in 6 weeks time I spent almost all of yesterday morning sorting through my wardrobe ( closet, I am so British :-) marvelling at how I had accumulated so much stuff! The result is three large sacks full of clothes to be given away. Some came into the category of " what was I thinking", some too big now ( at last), and others I will never shrink into again. Some are going simply because I want to streamline my wardrobe."

So how about you:

1. Are you a hoarder, or are you good at sorting and clearing?
I let things go in my closet until it really gets too crowded, then I clear things out and send stuff to "Housing Works" the local HIV housing thrift shops. They also get the books that overflow my apartment. We, just this year, got a storage place, two blocks away.

2. What is the oddest garment you possess and why?
I have an assortment of odd hats and DID have an alligator head that I made for a costume-it was really nice, but it got lost.

3. Do you have a favourite look/ colour?
Since my 12 years in Catholic schools, I tend to be a little tailored. That uniform look carries on way too long.

4. Thrift/ Charity shops, love them or hate them?
Love to give to them and buy books and sometimes small furniture to them, although the Stressless lounge chair and ottoman I'm currently sitting in came from Housing Works-quite a buy!

5. Money is no object, what one item would you buy?
I would buy a tailor to make all my clothes, so that I would never have to shop for clothes again-except shoes which I like to buy!

Too bad about the alligator head--it sounds great!
