closet detox.

so i’ve been doing a lot of reading and research on this capsule closet concept. if you haven’t heard of it, check out caroline’s blog,Β UNFANCY, to see what it’s all about.

it is a really great idea! i found that using the guidelines would be tough and the spending limits for each season were just not reasonable with my budget. so, i found this detox chart to use instead. i thought of it as a pre-capsule trial run.

keep pile on the left, maybe pile on the right… who am i kidding? i kept almost all of it!

after going through every article of clothing i own…and using the detox guidelines, i came up with three conclusions:

1. girl’s got WAY too much clothing.

2. my closet is the size of a tiny tim closet. i. have. NO. space. seriously.

3. how can i get rid of things that i haven’t worn for a year when i spent 40 weeks out of last year being a beached whale?

in short, the capsule is not feasible for my wardrobe at this particular moment and the detox chart was a little harsh for the circumstances. i do, however, plan to try this concept out again, eventually. OH..and get a much larger closet in the near future!

*update: i have since purchased nice, non-slip, huggable hangers. they give my closet uniformity. worth the purchase. i found mine at Home Goods.
