Stay or Away: Round 1

I am starting a new game.  It is called 'Stay or Away'.  This is how it works, each week I will share photos of items in my closet and you have to tell me if it should 'stay' or if it should go 'away'.  The decision is 100% up to you so please let me know your thoughts!!!  All 'away' items will be donated to my local Arc Thrift Store.  

Most of these items you have not seen during my one year no shopping challenge.  This is why I need to know if I should keep the item or donate it.  Some items you have seen, but may not be the best fit on my or not in style anymore.  Also, feel free to look back and all my blog posts and tell me if you see an item that should go 'away' from my closet.  

Okay, ready for round one?  

(left, A) The first top is a tank from DKNY.  I have had this tank for a very long time.  I love the embroidered pattern, but that isn't enough to convince me to keep it.  

(center, B) This vest is from GAP.  I thought it would look super adorable with a wide brown belt, skinny jeans and boots.  The problem with this is how it fits my body.  Do I keep it and keep trying to wear it?

(right, C) I bought this top at Kohls.  It is a petite so it is a little on the short side for me (even though I'm short).  I'm not that comfortable wearing it because it is so short.

Now you can help me out by commenting A, B or C in the comments below or on the FB page.

But, I'm not done yet.  I have a few more items to show you!

(left, D)  I am almost too embarrassed to show you all this top.  I bought it from a thrift store because I loved the color.  The embarrassing part is that it is a maternity shirt.  I thought if I tucked it into a cute skirt I could make it work.  Problem is, it still looks like a maternity top (go figure).

(right, E)  Do you have an item in your closet that you have never worn because it is so wrinkled that you don't even want to bother with ironing it?  Well, this is why this Banana Republic top is in the running.  It is linen (a nightmare to iron and keep wrinkle free).  I have never worn it because I know that even if I spent 30 minutes ironing it to smooth perfection that it would just get wrinkled again after 10 minutes of wear.   

Okay, let me know in the comments or on FB; C or D.

Last group:

(left, F) This brown top was purchased at The Limited.  It is fitted at the bottom that gives a billowy look to the top.  It isn't a bad top at all, I just don't ever wear it.  

(right, G)  This maroon top is from The Limited as well.  Again, it isn't a bad top, I just don't wear it.  I guess it would be good for office work, but I don't really do that.

Now get to work people;)  Just kidding, but seriously, I'd LOVE to hear your input!  

Comment here or on the FB page; F or G

I'll let y'all know next week what the decision is and I'll share another round of  'Stay or Away'!

Happy Shopping,

Ok, sounds like you have issues with all of the get rid of them. I think most of them are cute, but if you have an issue with them in your mind, you will never be comfortable with them on. :)
