Ever moved through a chaotic wardrobe without pausing to consider that things may be done differently? Battling sleeves, spiralling anaconda style, around the neck; a face lined from nothing more exhilarating than the monotony of finding something to wear. Promising (for a few minutes) that tomorrow, we’d sort things out; we’d join the elite, the lucky few born with preternatural ability to facilitate order and create systems.
But how do things in the closet get so overcrowded? How does that ratty little denim jacket you wore in university manage to surreptitiously elude the grave for decades, as you move across the world, back and forth and back again.
Overwhelmed by the sheer amount of worn, and unworn, clothes languishing in my closet, as well as my own pride, there were times, I’ll be honest, when I felt like covering the whole lot in tarp, for someone (I couldn’t bare to do it myself) to scoop into the dirt. This time, I swore, it had to be different.
And so it was. For the more I started throwing (OK, shipping back to my parents’ place), the better I felt.
It started with a list – albeit in a brand-spanking-new Moleskin notebook. A list of what I actually needed. The rest, if you choose to follow my lead, is at your own discretion.
The basics to keep:
- Great jeans
- Cropped pants
- Plenty of white tops
- Fitted shirts
- Fitted jackets
- Cute work dresses
- And a must for this season the mid length skirt
I felt great afterwards and now my wardrobe looks beautiful everything is easily accessible and everything that I never worn (no longer present)
BE RUTHLESS!!! and do it today!
