Phase of life that we’re currently in so mine was a velvet mini dress with glitter vines along the hem trust me it was super cute at the time it was the first piece of clothing that i’d ever bought myself and it made me feel beautiful i wore it often for two or three years but as my style changed i wore it less and less still it hung around my closet for another

Four years because i couldn’t bring myself to let it go purging it from my closet meant that i had to admit that i wasn’t that person anymore it meant recognizing that i was entering a different stage in my life that my style was changing and that i had to learn how to accept that which was hard eventually i realized that letting go of old pieces of clothing only

Means you’re making space for items that are more in line with the person that you are now and the person that you want to be so while it’s okay to keep a few items here and there for sentimental value pack those items away in a small keepsake box and free up that valuable closet space for items that you actually wear now number three anything that is unpleasant

To wear i’m talkin scratchy sweaters shirts that constantly ride up shorts that can’t stay out of places where they don’t belong and above all shoes that hurt your feet in an ideal world your cold should make you feel like your best self but at the very least it should at least not make you feel uncomfortable it’s basically impossible to feel completely confident

In yourself when every step you take makes you feel like your foot is breaking and how are you supposed to wow your co-workers with your ideas in the team meeting if all you can think about is getting home to get that poison ivy sweater you’re wearing off your body if the items are in good condition which they probably are because let’s be honest you don’t wear

Them that often because they’re so unpleasant to wear donate or sell them and move on and to make it so that you’re less likely to have this issue in the future whenever you go shopping pay attention to the fit and the feel of the clothing as you try it on move around in the ida walk around the store in those shoes if anything feels off skip it i promise you that

Something else will come along that you love and that loves you back number four anything that is worn or frayed and can’t be i’ve been known to wear clothing and shoes until they literally have holes in them when i love something i wear every last bit out of it and unless i found the perfect replacement for it i don’t want to let it go the plus side is that i

Definitely get my money’s worth out of the item which is always a good thing but the reality is that no matter how much you love an item of clothing once it starts to fall apart it’ll reach a point where it really stops bringing you joy and can actually add stress to your life like if you’re so worried about the condition of the item that you start voluntarily

Pointing out the flaws in your clothing before other people can even notice it kind of like preemptively pointing out the ketchup stain on your shirt from lunch if you find yourself having to make excuses for your clothing that means that that item isn’t actually something that you’re happy wearing no matter how much you love it and it’s time to let it go number 5

Anything you’ve been meaning to fix for more than three months i’m a huge fan of mending or altering clothing to extend its useful life my mom’s a seamstress so i’m comfortable making basic repairs and alterations and i’ve taken my favorite shoes to the cobbler to be reheated and resold on multiple occasions so i’m all for repairing clothing as the first step here

But if fixing that item of clothing keeps getting knocked to the bottom of your to-do list maybe it’s time to admit that you don’t love it enough to actually take the time out of your busy schedule to fix it so give yourself a firm deadline you have 30 days to actually repair those items or take them to a tailor and pay to have them repaired to maximize your chance

Of actually tackling this schedule time for it in your calendar just like you would a hot date night a doctor’s appointment or your job if the deadline comes and goes and that shirt is still missing a button it’s time to let that item go number 6 special occasion clothing that you haven’t worn in years you’ve been invited to a gala that requires a floor-length gown

Awesome but chances are you’re not gonna want to wear your prom dress to it now i understand that a prom dress is one of those sentimental items that you might never part with but the basic principle still stands having a closet full of one time where items isn’t doing anything for your daily life except maybe adding to that feeling that you have nothing to wear

So here’s what you should do instead put those sentimental items like your prom dress in storage as for other items if you haven’t worn them in over a year and they aren’t basic staples like a little black dress or a well-fitting suit you should probably let them go from now on focus on investing in versatile pieces that can be used for multiple occasions when

Buying me clothing and underwear which makes me feel so special but my style has changed over the years and now more often than not the clothing that she gives to me aren’t things that i would want to wear for years my solution was to hide them deep in the closet and then donate them to goodwill after enough time had passed that i could be sure that she wouldn’t
