I JUST cleaned my closet. I must admit that in about two weeks I will have to do it again. There are a few pieces, okay, a lot of them, that shouldn't be in there anymore. But dang, I just have to do it!

I'm thinking minimalism...and spring cleaning. I am detoxing my wardrobe.

I definitely agree with you..I've been thinking lately to do this, but I guess I didn't have enough courage. Now, because of this article, I'll throw away some old stuff to let my style grow. Thanks!!! <3

I totally agree with you, it's better to invest in long-live clothes rather than throwing out our money in cheap clothes that long for a season. I'm gonna try the 333project.

I love this article Amy! It's totally in line with my new years resolution to really invest in fashion instead of giving in to the fast fashion items, I usually fall for. I've already got one full garbage bag from spring cleaning & I'm gonna keep going. :)

summer white and denim blue is the best match all the time. PURPLEWANG shows the characteristic of layers of the clothing.

I am constantly trying to re-vamp my closet! I started moving items that I haven't worn in a while to the front/middle and if they haven't moved or touched while being in plain sight, I know it's time to toss.

Love this outfit!! I've been doing that with my closet too lately, "trimming the fat"!

haha "trimmed the fat" I love that term. I love eating fat though. Hm. Yes I was just gonna say I love how sophisticated this look is and the cut of that slit is so modestly provocative (oxymoron but you know what I mean!) I agree: were not minimalists but just decluttering and prioritizing!

Great article! I always use the "When was the last time I wore this?" prompt to get myself to get rid of things :) I don't totally agree with #4 though. Why should you get rid of sentimental things? You wouldn't get rid of a wedding dress! The reason you keep it is exactly that: sentimental!
