Just got a load of clothes from a relative cleaning her closet. Guess I will not have to set foot in a mall for ten years (over 30 pieces of clothes; blouses, tops, camis, capris, jeans.    I spent the day off organizing my closet space.

Looks like you got some nice pieces there.  What fun you will have mixing and matching!  Wish I had a relative like that...

We are similar in height and (almost) size but different figure issues, but most seem to fit well enough on me as far as the tops. I haven;t worked up the courage to try most of the pants, but sure something will work. Other than some form fitting tees, most of my stuff is pretty conservative; I do not own  a lot of feminine pieces, so this helps (as well as saves $$).

-------------------------------------
As for the colors I find cooler tones work on me usually jewel tones but can carry off some pastels. There a multi-print rust top in there that looks not half bad on me, thats one of the few exceptions. Soooweeeee. :Devil:

Wow, Swest! Nice haul! :) I love  these separates. Do all the colors work for you?

If they don't, they'd work for me.  :Devil:
