THROW IT ALL AWAY.
Kidding. Sorta. You only wear 20% of your wardrobe (or some small percentage like that; I promised myself I’d never do math after college). Like Marie Kondo says, keep the pieces that #sparkjoy. Get rid of the rest.
So, what about that pair of jeans that only fits when you’re not breathing? The outdated suit that is retro, but not the good kind of retro? What about that expensive AF dress you’ve been meaning to sell for years? Or that third winter coat you’ve kept just in case it dips below 60 degrees? OK, that one is tricky. Angelenos are very sensitive to temperatures below 70. Myself included. But you don’t need three of those coats.
I hear you screaming, “BUT WHAT IF IT COMES BACK IN STYLE?!” Chances are, it may, but holding onto something JUST IN CASE is living out of fear. And fuck fear! You’re better than that.
I also hear you screaming (or simply saying, not everyone is as obnoxious as me), “BUT WHAT IF I REGRET GETTING RID OF IT?!” You could regret it, but I’m betting as soon as it’s out of sight, you will quickly forget you ever owned that (insert horrible piece of clothing here).
I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR. LITERALLY.
My goal is not to force you into a nudist colony (unless that’s your jam, then let’s burn it all). My goal is to leave you with a streamlined, breathable, anxiety-free closet. And if you need more spark-joy pieces, we will SHOP. Purge parties and personal shopping are my besties.
I’m a big fan of color coordinating. It’s stress-reducing, calm-inducing, and who doesn’t dig a little ROYGBIVing.
