I started my closet purge last Saturday. While all the clothes I normally wear were in the wash, I went through and pulled anything that didn't fit, I didn't like, or for whatever reason I just do not wear. I also went through my shoes. I bagged everything and took it to the local thrift store that morning. I was a bit surprised at how much clothing I was holding onto for no reason. My mom told me I was brave, but really do I need to keep a dress I haven't worn in over 8 years?
When the laundry was finished I moved onto Tim Gunn's closet sorting step, and took out all my "Soul Stirring" pieces. I only had five:
Tim Gunn says to look at your pieces and see what your soul is saying to you, I guess I love cardigans, skirts and tank tops? The tank top is one I made myself from an Alabama Chanin pattern. It would be super easy to make more of those... The green skirt I also made myself from an XL t-shirt, inspired by Alabama Chanin. This also proves to me even more that I am not in love with my wardrobe. I am obviously keeping much more than these 5 pieces, but these are the ones that I truly love.
