    What My Yearly Closet Purge Taught Me

    Every year I do a closet purge. A committed deep dive through every single piece of clothing and donate the items I no longer want. Last year my purge yielded four full thirty-gallon trash bags of clothes and twenty pairs of shoes. In the past, I’ve looked forward to purging my closet as a way to help organizations like Goodwill or Dress for Success. However, this time all I saw was fashion gluttony. I started questioning my shopping habits and wondered how I can scale back. Do I need 6 black blazers, 100 pairs of shoes, 85 belts? Absolutely not! I probably could sell most of this stuff, make a few dollars, but I don’t really want to take on that task. Instead, I’ll use this as a learning opportunity and help a couple non-profits. Weekend Wear: Sweats and Heels (2013) I’m done wearing uncomfortable shoes I love shoes! No exaggeration I have over 100 pairs. However, when I started my new job in June of 2017 I learned very quickly that wearing high heel shoes and being on my feet all day was “no bueno”. Not being able to wear my beautiful four-inch heels to the office anymore stung at first. Nothing finishes off an outfit like a fantastic shoe. However, I realized that I was killing my feet and it wasn’t worth it. I now save my high heels for date night and events. Even then I am not wearing anything that I can’t comfortably wear for more than a few hours. Beauty does not have to be painful. Y’all remember these Ankra Just Fab shoes? They ended up being one the prettiest and most uncomfortable shoes I own. Closet Purge Lesson Learned: It’s absolutely possible to be stylish and comfortable. Don’t waste money on shoes that are ridiculously uncomfortable. Get rid of shoes that no longer fit my lifestyle. Weekend Wear: Hooded Maxi Dress (2016) I like trends in moderation I would describe my personal style as classic with a slight trendy mix. My closet is full of pencil skirts, a-line dress, fitted blazers, and midi-skirts. My indulgence in trends and fast fashion lead to some great purchases, like this hoodie dress that I LOVE! Not every purchase ends up being a score and most of my trendy buys end up in my purge at the end of the year. Investing my money in items that are classic and high quality is a better move. I’ve fallen victim to super cute cheap clothes from overseas clothing companies. Y’all know which ones I’m talking about, they are notorious for stealing fashion bloggers content and passing it off as their own. The clothes aren’t made from the best materials and they fall apart or shrink after one wash. Remember the bomber jacket trend? Yea…mines is still in my closet with the tags on it, smh. Closet Purge Lesson Learned: Continue to purchase trendy clothing in moderation. The Hunt (2015) I have shopping FOMO I let my shopping habits get out of hand, which is wasteful. That money I overspent on clothes could have been in my bank account. My weakness is sales and perceived good deals. I convince myself I have to buy something because I’ll miss out. Nothing haunts you like the things you didn’t buy. I am also guilty of buying clothes “just in case”. I purchase items with the notion they “may” get worn. Rushing to make purchases because items sell out quickly and won’t be around when the occasions arrive that I will need them. I passed on this beautiful skirt and it drove me crazy! I eventually found it on eBay paying slightly more than the retail price, smh. Closet Purge Lesson Learned: Be a disciplined shopper. Remix the clothing I own more and don’t fall victim to fast fashion purchases. ASOS Polka Dot Pleated Maxi Skirt (2016) I don’t need to buy everything I see my favorite bloggers wear Ok, this probably sounds hypocritical because I am a blogger. However, like you guys, I read blogs and follow influencers. On several occasions, I’ve made purchases based on another bloggers influence. Case in point, I purchased this beautiful pleated maxi skirt after seeing Cortnie Elizabeth of Style Lust Pages wear it. Yep, I am an influencer that is influenced by other bloggers and gets excited when I see my faves wear a dope item. I slowed down a lot on my influencer prompted purchases but there is still room for improvement. Closet Purge Lesson Learned: Show love to my fellow influencers for their great style and content. Do not whip out my debit card every time a blogger wow’s me with a dope outfit. When is the last time you do a closet purge? p.s.
