Ok, I admit it, I’m a hoarder. I confess to have hoarding my denim trousers from college days until last year, for almost 12 years (OMG!! Shoot me!!). I would struggle to get dressed for an occasion as simpe as a coffee with a friend; I’d spend 1 hour to just find the right outfit, the right bag and the right footwear. Everything was cluttered, there were clothes I didn’t wear from more that 2 years spilling out of my wardrobe, shoes with chipped heels and bags that had withered (faux) leather. That’s when I decided to give it a detox.
When is the time you think you have to Detox your wardrobe – you ask? The answer is simple, when you have no space left for the new ones. Here is a flow chart to make your detox process easy:
Step 1 : Make a ‘Trash it’ and a ‘Keep it’ Basket.
Pick 2 separate baskets marked as Yes and No. So the ones you think you want will go in the YES pile and the ones you don’t will go into the NO Pile
Step 2: Write down your Current Style Statement
Be ruthless, write down words that describe your current ‘State of Style’ without peaking into your wardrobe.
Step 3: Clean out the wardrobe, leave nothing inside
This gives you a blank canvas to paint on and will let you envision your future wardrobe.
Step 4: Follow this flow chart
Step 5: DONATE or Trash the ‘Trash it’ pile without taking a second look at it
Really, Do not take a second look into the Trash it pile. Be ruthless with it
I usually donate the ‘Trash’ it pile; at least the ones that are not broken or torn. This way it is at least of some use to the ones in need. Have your Detoxed your wardrobe yet?
