The "Treasures and Gems" hidden in my wardrobe

Last month I spent a day going through my wardrobe finding some "Treasures and Gems" that had been hidden away for years.  I'm a hoarder when it comes to my clothes, I never  cull anything,  I love love love it all, even my op shop finds just can't part with them. I have them spread throughout the house in different wardrobes though.

So........ last month I spent a day playing "Dress Ups" I did my hair and makeup,(as your clothes always look better when they are done), and started fossicking.   I used my Pinterest  boards for inspiration to pull some looks together, OMG their were things I'd forgotten I even had, that had been hidden away for years.  I am going to do this exercise again as was so much fun, but would be even better if you had a group girl friends around, and made a party of it. take a bag of your clothes  then take it in turns maybe swap some, and take it in turns to go to each others houses, and help each other find their "Treasures and Gems" they might have hidden away.  So here are some photos of my day "playing dress ups"
