    I've had church clothes for over thirty years. I blend in. Well maybe not completely.

    those clothes are like bad reminders for some. My suits are worth some big bux. I'm not getting rid of them just because I was a Witness!

    Cant stand the thought of wearing mine..gave them away .De-clutering my mind, my wardrobe and all my watchtower

    and awake mags went inside the bin. I am now reading books and educating myself.

    You don't have to get rid of expensive clothing if they still fit and look good.

    Why not try wearing some of them to occasions now and superimpose a new memory to these particular outfits. I have a particularly nice coat I used to wear to the memorial and instead of throwing it out, I am going to wear it again to other places. If you work in an office like me, then you can wear these suits.

    The only things I got rid of from my JW days are some particularly dowdy or overly-long dresses I felt compelled to wear because I was scrutinized and didn't want to look "sexy".

    Now, I only wear longer, stylish dresses for the summer (no stockings) when I don't want my white legs to show. Has nothing to do with modesty. Rest of the year I wear shorter lengths with hose.

    Everything in my closet is up-to-date.

    Only when applying for a job (anyone need a killer salesman in NL)? I could even sell my mother if she was still alive!
