**cue trumpets blaring**
I am going to go through my closet sections at a time. I tried on all my “formal” dresses and found that two just really don’t fit and I haven’t worn one of the dresses since 2004 and the other since 2008. I know what you are thinking….YIKES! Seriously?? I’ve kept a dress for 11 years and haven’t worn it since the one time that I did!
I took pics of the ones that I am keeping to add to my Stylebook (an app on my phone) so I know what dresses I have for fancy occasions and then I packed them in a clear container and put it on the top shelf of my closet. If I have a need for a special occasion outfit then I’ll just pull them down and dry clean them if needed to freshen them up. Just by doing that I’ve eliminated 5 hangers from my closet. Felt good to accomplish that!
Tomorrow I will tackle another area. I’m only getting rid of stuff that does not fit and that I have no real hopes of fitting or stuff that is just not going to be utilized with other things. I’ve decided to stick with the neutral color of black as my “base” color. Might possibly add gay or camel or beige as well. Not sure which one….what do y’all think would be a good second neutral color?
And then as for as my other colors that I will keep in my palette, I am going to try to stick with jewel tones. Specifically teals, aqua’s, olive greens and emerald greens. I like how my eyes look with those colors. But I will still have other colors in my closet.
I’m excited to work through my closet but I don’t want to try and do it all in one day/night. Well, actually I do but my allergies can’t handle it and I don’t want to get tired and possibly not make a good decision about what stays and what goes. I just keep thinking that I’m going to have more space and less “stuff” and that will be an awesome thing.
So that’s what I am thinking about right now.
Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa
