Tomorrow is a rainbow day...

Tomorrow is the day. I have been skeptical before but the curiosity of whether I am a clear winter or maybe more like a cool summer has got the better of me and tomorrow I find out 'my colours'!! And then the day after I will probably be found removing all the practical and black things from my wardrobe because they don't suit me and googling how to get red brassy tones out of my hair. (I do not need a colour specialist to tell me my hair has faded to gross... I know, I know and I hate it too!... How DO you avoid a brassy fade out when you're brunette?!)

I've decided I think I should run a charity shop. Over the past few weeks I've had friends and mums and ladies I don't know all delivering their unwanted clothing round to my house all to be labelled up for our first ever Golddigger Trust Preloved Clothing Sale. I stole the idea from the school PTA who annually run a togswap to raise funds for the school with childrens clothing but we just decided lets do this for women, in an evening with wine and music and with all of those clothes that are just TOO NICE to throw in a charity bag - and too expensive... so they get a percentage and a percentage goes to the charity. Its amazing. I get to organise Versace tops and Louis Vuitton bags and although it is everso slightly appealing to my shopaholic nature and I might just BUY EVERYTHING BEFORE THE SALE EVEN STARTS... I also want there to be lots of goodies to make a really exciting night for everyone else...but if I do treat myself just a little bit I know it will be going right into the charity I am extremely passionate about! Win win!
With my own clothing however I am being ruthless. I've had the most extensive wardrobe clearout known to mankind. Enough of owning 578 things I can not see because they are behind the things I can see (so are then the only things I wear). I am big time streamlining! I also am going to keep less things in my children's wardrobes... because really if I was fair I would let them have space for their own things. I have 2 weeks to completely change my mind and snatch all my old clothes back again. Not sure which way we'll go to be honest. :S
