Hello there! My name is Ashley, I blog over at That is All, and I love Adeline.
She and I actually have a lot in common - the love of dolls (ok, ok...maybe counting Domo as a doll is stretching it), the love of photography, the love of makeup, the love of pretty clothes...
It’s actually the love of clothes that I want to talk about today. Well, let me be more specific - it’s the love of getting rid of clothes.
I know what you are thinking - craziness! But one of the greatest gifts that Adeline gave me was this post about her wardrobe detox. It totally spurred me into my own closet purge.
In addition to Adeline’s tips, I’d like to share some of my own...
1. ROYGBIV: If you talk to my family they may try to convince you that I have some OCD tendencies. True or not, my closet is arranged by colors. It honestly makes picking outfits fun. Try it!
2. Identify Your Weakness. Do you have tons of floral dresses? A plethora of striped tops? Way too many bow ties? The first step is to identify this. I’ll give you an example - my weakness is pretty shoes. Now that I’m armed with this information the next time I’m running through Nordstroms and see “the pair” I can remember the ungodly amount of shoes I already own. Now, I’m not perfect and there is still a chance I may buy the shoes, so I found some good storage that gets my shoes off the floor.
3. No More Hangers. After I followed Adeline’s instructions, and my closet was filled with only things I wear and love, I gave away ALL my extra hangers. I made a promise to myself that I would buy no more hangers. So if I bring home a super cute top, guess what? That’s right - something has to go from my closet so I will have room.
I got rid of more than half my wardrobe, but I honestly feel like I have more to wear. Sometimes the universe is crazy like that. ;)
That is all.
