Jacksonville Senior Photographer // Scarlett Lillian Seniors: Free clothes give-a-way!

Free clothes give-a-way!





Friday night I went with some girlfriends to see the hilarious movie "He's Just Not That Into You" based on the popular break-up book. I do have to admit, when I read this book years ago, it completely changed my life and the way I viewed dating relationships. Bottomline, when a guy wants you, he'll move mountains to pursue you. I hear this now over and over with the sweet love stories from my brides and grooms, and I don't know why it took me so long to go DUH SCARLETT all those years ago!

Then when I got home from the movie ready to slip into my comfy PJs, I hung back up in my closet the shirt that I wore to the movie and stared at it for a minute. It was a shirt I had since college, one those you keep over the years because you JUST MIGHT wear it one more time. But then it gradually makes it way to the back of the closet and starts collecting dust over time. I decided to pull it out Friday night for the movie to give it one more try. And because I ended up wearing it again for the first time in 5 years, I naturally hung it back up in my closet to continue collecting dust.

But then as I gave it the stare down, I realized, "You know what, I'm just NOT into this shirt anymore." And I took it down and threw it on my bed. Thus started, one shirt turned into like 20 others I wasn't into anymore, along with old pants and jackets I used to wear at my corporate job that I haven't worn since, along with old dresses I wore on old dates with old memories I don't care to remember anymore.

So now I have a huge pile of clothes I don't want anymore, but I don't want to throw them out. They are still in great shape and I know they would be perfectly great to pass along to someone in need. So, if there's anyone out there who wants some of my old clothes for free, shoot me an email at scarlett@scarlettlillian.com and I would be happy to mail them to you! :-)

And just like everything else in life, God has to clean out the old before He can bring in the new. My friend Ginger and I had an awesome day at the Towne Center bonding over fashion and getting some new fun pieces for our Vegas trip next week! Two trends I noticed in the stores this season:

Ruffles
-and-
Feathers

EVERYWHERE!


And yes I gave into both. ha! This is my favorite time of year to shop because everything is pink for Valentine's Day. I really try NOT to buy pink so that my closet isn't over saturated with it, but I can never seem help it. It's just my happy color. :-) And needless to say, yes, I'm very into it.

EDIT: WOW, I got sooooo many beautiful emails from so many sweet blog readers who are in need for clothes. I so wish I had enough clothes to go around to everyone, but after a lot of consideration and prayer, I picked a special recipient to provide the clothes too. Thank you soooo much to everyone who emailed me! I pray that God blesses each of your closets through another means beyond what I could provide.

Also, in offering this, from the many emails, I got, I realized there IS such a NEED out for those who need clothes. I encourage each of you to go through your own closets and blog about this opportunity to give back in your local area! How cool is that to pay fashion forward?

Oh my goodness... I so need to clean my closet out too. I have a huuuuge walk in closet filled to the gills with clothes that sadly I can't fit in anymore. I know that even when I finally fit back in those sizes, the fashions will likely be completely dated and I wouldn't want to wear them out in public anyhow. I was actually thinking about all this before I left for church this morning after spending nearly an hour trying to find anything at all to wear. I think a closet overhaul is definitely what I need... it must be fate that I read your blog just now ;) More motivation to toss the old and make room for the new. Thanks for the added inspiration girlie. :) If you can't get rid of your corporate gear I know there is a non profit organization you could donate them too: www.dressforsuccess.org that gives the clothes to women in need of professional attire.

You know, I have cleaned out my closet at least twice this year and ended up with probably 10 bags of clothes that I donated and STILL have a bunch of clothes that I just don't wear. So many of my clothes still have tags on them.

He's just not that into you was amazing! I loved loved loved it! I thought it was a movie that most girls really need to see. I took boys with us to go see the movie and they got a pretty good laugh asking us girls if that is what really runs through our minds! It was fantastic! Glad to see you're doing well love xoxo

I just did the same thing with my closet! Between my husband and I we had bags upon bags that we took to Goodwill. My new rule (which I've heard before) is if you haven't worn it in a year it's time to get rid of it!

For anything you have left over, please consider a donation to Goodwill or another thrift store. There are many needy young women out there who may not see the blog, but benefit from our giving. I took 3 large bags full there last month, and have plans for a few more!

That was such a great movie, and it's great, as a woman, to be able to step away from things that WE just are NOT into any more...like clothes.

Men are a whole other topic...hehe.

We did something similar last year with a bunch of our friends. We called it Clothes Swapping. Basicly we were instructed to put any clothes and accessories that we don't use in a box or bag( shoes, purses, jewelry, clothes, belts etc)and then give it to the peson who was in charge of seperatating everything in categories. For every item we donated, we received a ticket. When the clothes swapping day came, we were able to go around and exchange our tickets for someone else's item that we liked. We also created a little game where if we wanted an item really bad, we would bid on it by the amount of tickets we had. Once everyone ran out of tickets, and if there were alot of clothes left, we were given the freedom to take what was left over. Seiously, we had about 40 girls who participated which equaled to TONS and TONS of clothes. Whatever that was left by the end of the night, it was donated to a thrift store :)
