Sometimes it’s not what you buy; it’s what you kick to the curb

Like everyone else you thought the affair would last forever. You remember the good times and the odd, ecstatic feeling of guilt when you laid down two crisp bennies for those Tories. But it’s time. No regrets. Donate, or sell or give your dated and doomed goods to a frenemy who you’d love to see on What Not to Wear.

1. Tory has moved on and so maybe you should too. I’ve recently heard this called the “Nebraska shoe.” So two years ago.

Tory Burch Reva Ballet Flats $195

What to buy instead:
Tory Burch Jaden Buckled Boots $550

2. So you were nice and didn’t tell your friend she looked like she was wearing a diaper underneath these pants… there is a reason why these are more than half-off. So last summer… and in Paris the summer before.

Ralph Lauren Collection Silk Crepe Harem Pants On Sale $598.90

What to buy instead:
Catherine Malandrino Ponte Stretch Skinny Pant $265

3. Check this at the door. Even Burberry is keeping their signature checks on the DL — and so should you. Unless, you want to look like you just stepped out of 1982.

Burberry Check Tote $595

What to buy instead:
Burberry Nylon Tote $195

4. Unless you’re flying back in time to LA circa approximately 2006 please let the butterfly sleeves fly away. Do you really want to look like a cast member on the Real Housewives of Orange County?

ABS Butterfly Sleeve Silk Dress $275

What to buy instead:
ABS Boatneck Tee Dress $175

5. OK. I confess that YSL bags are most likely always going to be au courant. However, the style of this particular tote has certainly met its expiration date.

YSL Rive Gauche Large Leather Bag $680

What to buy instead:
Yves Saint Laurent Patent Leather Hobo $1195
