Whenever I look at my closet, I often think I need to update my wardrobe and that I should do a clothes swap with my more stylish friends.
The following is an excerpt from my latest post at Suburban Finance:
If you took a look inside my closet, you would see that I don’t have a lot of clothing to begin with. My partner’s portion of our closet is filled with much more clothing. Despite the fact he keeps saying most of it is ugly, he doesn’t bother to get rid of things he doesn’t like or wear anymore.
A few months ago, my sister helped me do a closet purge. Since she is the more fashionable one, the purge felt like something right out of a “What Not to Wear” episode. I tried to justify keeping some articles of clothing and a few things she said were: “Get rid of it.” “You have too many hoodies and too many things with flowers on them.” “That’s ugly.” After we were done, my closet looked even emptier, but at least it was filled with clothing I wore quite often. The clothing I had gotten rid of was donated to the Salvation Army.
Wishing everyone and their families a Happy Easter! 🙂
