As you might have noticed, it's been a while since my last decently written entry. I might be able to use a lack of inspiration as an excuse but that doesn't change the fact that I seriously dislike flooding this blog with wordless entries. So I convinced myself that it would be worth the effort to write something down that consists of more than 5 words. For some reason, I tend to resort to blogging about something fashionrelated everytime I feel uninspired (I wonder why?). Apologies for that.
Anway, these last few days/weeks I've spend an awful lot of time on cleaning out my closet. I had so many clothes that had never even gotten to see the light of day, I figured I could just as well get rid of them. It was more difficult than I thought it would be, parting with clothes that are in a way still wearable isn't exactly easy. But it was necessary. I tend to get a bit overwhelmed when I have too much choice, and I feel obliged to wear the things I don't completely love, just because they are hanging in my closet. Hopefully my new smaller wardrobe will make getting dressed a lot easier and more fun.
Right now my summer wardrobe consists of:
1 striped sweaterdress
3 blazers: black, navy, white
1 short trench jacket
2 button up shirts: blue&white stripes/purple&black plaid
5 blouses (short sleeves)
4 pairs of shorts
2 pairs of jeans
1 pair of trousers
8 pairs of shoes
It will be a challenge to make it work, but I have no other choice since I promised myself that I won't buy anything new until fall collections hit the stores. Or as I like to call that moment, september. And from then on I will only buy pieces I am madly in love with. Eventhough I'd love to pretend otherwise, paying a little more for something you absolutely love is so worth it. (remember my Isabel Marant blouse? I wish I could wear it everyday!)
Even Especially if that means I'll be able to buy less, true love over quantity, right?
I'm not quite sure how this information could be useful to anyone, but I noticed I quite enjoy reading about the content of other people's closets and their approach on purchasing new clothes. So I took the liberty of assuming that some of you might actually feel the same. After all, I don't believe that I'm the only one who has developed a certain dislike towards mindless consumerism.
I guess the real question of this post is: are you satisfied with your wardrobe?
Do you prefer having a large amount of clothes over having a smaller, more compact wardrobe? Do you think there is such a thing as owning too many clothes? What's the first thought that pops into your mind when you open your closet doors? Do you prefer quality over quantity or vice versa?
