Today was closet cleaning/reorganization day, and oh boy, it was a doozy. I often get frustrated in the mornings when I'm trying to put an outfit together, and then that can throw the whole day off. The other day I saw a quote from a French fashion editor who said that she didn't understand the size of American's closets - "How can you dress well with so many clothes?" And that seems about right. I've tried to simplify before, but alas, it almost never works. Whenever I can't find an outfit I like, I just go out and buy something that feels right in the moment.
So, that strategy = a lot that doesn't go with anything else.
Today I got rid of over 100 things. Yes, 100+ pieces of clothing. And you know what? My closet looks and feels fine. Come the end of the week, I probably won't even remember what I got rid of.
So this new series for the blog - One Piece Three Ways - is inspired by my trying to make do with less and really be happy with it.
