I've been doing some purging, as well as trying to wear items that have been in my holding zone (mentally if not physically) which I'm not sure still fit me or my criteria (thanks, checklist compiling exercise!). I've saved a couple of items this way, but there are others I suddenly can't wait to get rid of, especially those that were a big mistake. I just want them gone.

Two examples: my mustard Banana Republic jacket and my Rag & Bone Newbury booties. I fell hard for both of these items, somehow ignoring that mustard is not a color I wear and that the Newbury heels are much too high for everyday walking for me. It's like a case of sour grapes.

Do I have to wait until love turns to bitterness to let an item go, or do you ever break up with an item you still love? And why?
