Hello

Welcome to my public thoughts on my personal life goals. In 2014, I set out to change my lifestyle, and I began with the best way I knew how - my closet. I share with you, how the road to Perfecting My Closet, is helping me achieve my ultimate life goals. 

1/5 - First Allowance Item of 2018

1/5 - First Allowance Item of 2018

Yes, I shopped in the second week of 2018. It's actually not really fair to say I broke my ban because what I bought was to replace something that had broken over the holidays. I even mention here, that I don't already own something that works just as well. Nonetheless, a purchase is a purchase and since I feel like I can make do with what I already own, albeit it painfully, it isn't a necessary need, hence it's not a Replacement Item and will be counted as ONE towards my 5 Allowance Items. 

  Recently purchased Burberry Brindley Zip Coin Case Key Ring in Tangerine.

It's scheduled to arrive today for pick-up - I'm excited! But also feel disappointed that I already made a purchase so early on in the year. That said though, I think (and I'm hopeful) that this Burberry key holder will replace my broken Fossil one, very well.

What I liked about the Fossil key holder was that my keys fit inside while still being attached to the holder; and it was shallow enough to keep some odds and ends contained, while easily accessible. The one I was using did not have a strap that would allow me to tuck my keys into the holder, and while it was sizable, is too deep for my fingers to easily reach items such as loose change. 

   Interim pouch I’ve been using to stave off buying a replacement - sadly, it’s driving me crazy.

This Burberry one I purchased from Fashionphile (at a great price, and new with tags!) opens 3/4 of the way which will keep my odds and ends in (at the same time giving me easy access), allows me to tuck the key attachment into the pouch via chain, and has a long wrist holder for hands-free. It's pretty awesome! I'm hoping it's just as awesome in person. I measured and drew out its size to make sure my keys will fit, along with my metro pass. Hey, when you're buying site unseen, you want to be extra sure it's going to work so you don't have to deal with the return process.

And on that note, I will be letting go of the pouch that wasn't working for me.
