Closet Detox: Phase 1


I have two confessions to make:

1. I am a huge shopaholic
2. I am a packrat (I still have clothes from middle school!)
This results in an abrnormally large & unneeded wardrobe.

When I left for college I literally left half of my wardrobe at home because there simply was not enough room in my dorm room to fit all of it!

Surviving an entire school year without a lot of my clothes made me realize how little I actually wear them. fact I barely recognized what was missing. So, now that I'm home from the summer I am doing I never once wished I had a certain shirt or dress. In what I like to call.. A Closet Detox.

Phase 1 is simpling going through all my clothes and dividing them up into different groups: Keep (essentials), Sell (to Plato's Closet), Garage Sale (which will be held next month), and Give Away (to a local thrift store). It's an overwhelming process & i'll keep you updated on the progress! I'd love any helpful advice for anyone who's done the same!

MY closet is full with things that I want ot keep because I feel bad that I havent worn them, or because I it is sentimental.

Secretista said...

Haha. I used to be exactly the same, but upon coming to College I had a Fashion Identity crisis and realized I didn't like most of my clothing and chucked darn near 80% of it and bought an entire new wardrobe. I wear everything I own now, or I try to make the effort to. Good luck with this detoxing. Take pictures!!
