When you move, you have to go through your closet and sometimes, get rid of the past.
When I recently moved in with my boyfriend into his beautiful house, I had to go through my closet and get rid of some items. It was insanely hard to go through these items that I have lived life in, and give them away.
My boyfriend was very helpful and is even building me a closet to house all of my fashion collection. I'm kind of like Carrie from Sex and the City. So many clothes, nothing to wear. Kyle even brought the remnants of my fashion room into our bedroom and set up my bookshelves for my shoes, purses and fashion magazines.
It's really hard to closet clean, especially if you have been a fashionista since birth and are a semi fashion hoarder.
I followed three rules when I was cleaning:
1. Have I worn this in the past year?
2. Is it my size?
3. Do I even like this item anymore? Is it still my "style"?
There was some pieces I just couldn't let go of. Like any woman, some clothing has secret memories attached to them.
One of my favourite scenes in the Sex and the City movie was when Carrie cleaned out her closet with Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte. Even Confessions of a Shopaholic had a closet cleaning scene!
It was really fun to relive the past, and the memories when I was cleaning. I would suggest doing this every 6 months to stay on top of your closet and organization. Do you really need those dresses you got on sale from Forever21 with the tags still attached? That sweater that's two sizes too small?
Closet organization is kind of my thing, a really great hobby. That's why I am always cruising The Coveteur to see how celebrities and editors style their closets!
