Today's post about the possible return of maxi coats brought back fond memories of one I had in the early 2000s. I'm petite but it was slim enough that it didn't overwhelm me and I felt so elegant and sophisticated wearing it. I purged it a few years ago when I didn't see a single maxi coat on the street and felt it was dated. I have some regrets because even if maxi coats come back, it is hard to find one that works for petites.

What are your purge regrets? Any thoughts on how to prevent them in the future? My rule of thumb is going to be "Never purge an item that makes you feel extra fab and would be hard to replace."
