Shoe Collection Edit

Recently I took it upon myself to attack my shoe collection and get rid of the pairs that I don't need in my life. 

This was the first edit to my shoe collection and possibly the easiest edit to make. 

Step One: Get rid of the broken, ugly & dingy shoes

This was pretty easy for me since I had a giant pile of shoes I just never choose to wear. With that said this pile formed.

I got rid of the shoes that I would simply not ever chose to wear again or look like I wore way to much! I want to edit down my shoe collection to only pairs that I would want to wear with all the outfits they would apply to. 

The next step for me would be to edit out the shoes that do not really match anything I would wear or the shoes that are just plain uncomfortable! There are still a few pairs that I just should get rid of but I am putting them on a 3 month trial that if I don't find a time to wear them then they must go!

Fall Capsule Update

It has almost been a full two months since I began using my Capsule Wardrobe (fall edition). I enjoy the effortlessness of having a small amount of clothing to choose from while getting ready for a night out or a weekend away. As I have said before, the hardest part about getting ready or packing my bags for a trip is deciding what to bring! This has narrowed my closet down to under 40 items (including shoes and jackets) which includes all items I would wear without a second guess. 

Since it is now the last few weeks of the Fall edition to my wardrobe I wanted to give it a quick look over and see what items I haven't utilized at all. 

  1. Purple disco pants
  2. Fur sweater 
  3. Green sweater dress
  4. Black dress with beige stripes 
  5. Black romper

My goal for the next two weeks is to make an effort to wear these pieces before it is time to change over to my Winter Wardrobe. If I find that I am not wearing these I then have to ask myself if I even want to keep these specific items. I know for sure I have got a lot of wear out of my disco pants and that even though I have never worn the black romper I will for sure be wearing it in other seasons! I chose to put the romper in my fall wardrobe to push myself to layer and try to wear a summer item in other seasons.

Hopefully I can keep this mental note of what needs more love in my Capsule and choose to wear these pieces over others. 


Updated Wardrobe Declutter: December 2015

I have been in a declutter mood lately, getting rid of anything I have no use for or that take up space in my not so spacious room. Last week I had another decluttering party (by myself!) where I tackled my closet space. I knew that all the clothing that was in my current capsule wardrobe was safe to stay but I had a lot other pieces that have not seen the light of day in a few seasons. When going through my clothing I had to figure out what I love and what I don't. 

To start the cleaning process, I pulled out all of the items that I A) have not worn in a really long time, B) Do not like the way they fit, or C) I do not feel like I love the item on me. Once these items were thrown onto my bed in an extremely horrendous pile I sorted through them making one section for things I was for sure not keeping and things that I needed to try on again. 

To be honest, 90% of the items were given away to a new home that would give them more love. I only kept things that I liked the fit of and that made me feel good about myself while wearing them. My closet feels half the size of what it used to be but I feel like I know everything in there is something I could wear and feel comfortable in. 

Looking back on the process of decluttering I felt very accomplished and pleased about the items I decided to keep. I now have more space in my closet for new things that would complement the current items in my wardrobe. I am looking forward to decluttering my dresser drawers as well as the bins under my bed of seasonal items, but thats for another time.
