Giving away 100 pairs of shoes

And then some. Yep these are lawn bags brimful with my heel history.

Some of it hard to part with.

Some of it just plain horrible.

I recently was inspired by the big O and her Makeover Issue to get rid of all the clothes and shoes I’ve been hoarding in massive tubs and bags. In the issue organizing genius Peter Walsh got me thinking it is time to let go, keeping all this stuff  he says is just “unhealthy.”  He’s right.

I decided instead of giving my shoes and clothes away to friends, my little sister (sorry Jenny) or just throwing it down the chute it would be better to donate it. I will tell you after the drop off I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. The only problem… there’s more.

The founder of Intimacy Bras says studies find 85% of women are wearing the wrong bra. She says the biggest mistake.. wearing one that is too big around the back. She says to think of your bra as a see-saw… pull it down in the back to get the lift in the front. Nethero adds lingerie must-haves are a plunging bra, a converter bra and something red.  HOT!
