3 Years In The Closet Unworn…

Oh, my poor business suits. Neglected. Just hanging on hangers. In a dark closet. It’s been almost three years (in November) since I freed myself of the 9 to 5 world. 

Some of the jackets, I had planned on removing the shoulder pads. Only to see news of shoulder pads coming back.  Sigh… 😦

The other day I needed a prop to show off my new macrame belts which double as a necklace.

So… this brown suit should be happy to finally get some attention.

Worn as a Belt.

This was one of my favorite suits. It has a straight skirt plus tailored pants with cuffs. I wore the heck out of it. I probably wore it at least 2 or 3 times a month. Always with different shells, blouses, sweaters, shoes and scarves. It has shiny spots from frequent cleaning but the fabric is still holding up. Many years of wearing left.

But for now… it is back to hanging in the dark closet. 🙂

    I like the idea of the belt doubling as a necklace. Pretty cool.

    Sharon, can’t you recycle your uniforms? Cut them in strips and sew into something. Or here’s an idea. On Halloween you can dress up as a nurse. 😀

    Hi Naan, I am going to make a few more. I like them too. Thanks!!
