Lost & Found

About a month ago I did a major clean in my wardrobe, I mean like “cleaned house.” I have a certain amount of hanging room and when I found myself not being able to fit new items, thats when I knew that I couldn’t bring in anything else until it was out with the old. That usually is my stance on everything “something in, something out” but I had fallen behind on letting go, which in a lot of ways reflects on my personal life. Funny how clothes and life are so intertwined. I think I was in a state of not knowing who I was in that part of my life, we change all the time, from month to month, year to year but I was having a little trouble getting over the hump of a few things. One day I woke up and said to myself “time to get the energy moving” & I figured out what my next step is. So I kid you not, instead of combing over of my closet all day, I tried on hundreds of items on like weather bracelets, jackets, dresses, you name it. I made 3 sections 1 to donate, 1 to sell on POSE, 1 to try on again and rethink, then the keepers go back on the rack. Anything I had to think about I took a picture of it on myself in the mirror and if I looked back and was like yes, thats an amazing piece then I kept it. A lot of things I wanted to keep but I had to really love it to keep it! It was kind of a hard decision foreseeing the future like that but I had to let go of that and focus on what was really important. If I haven’t worn it in a year and it wasn’t vintage then I had to make some serious decisions. Which brings me to this Maje dress, I bought it about a year ago for my wedding thinking that it could be the perfect dress, I did end up going a different way but had to keep the dress. I mean the lines, the cut it was too good not to keep. I am so glad I finally got to wear it out. After all was said and done, I sat on my step stool in my closet and was so proud of what I can accomplished. I saw clearly that holding on to what no longer serves you is no way to live in life and in fashion.

  • I had to have a huge clear out not so long ago, due to the fact we were moving house! Still getting rid of a couple of bits. I find that the easiest things to get rid of, are the ones I always end up wanting to wear after the fact!

    Alas, we can’t hold on to everything! C x
