Sigh... I have been in love with Anthropologie over.. years...
And my closet is full of Anthropologie.
I have been selling things but I keep finding new things that I want.
That's right. They have new arrival every month. Every year.
I can't buy everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, I made rules for myself based on what I have been selling.
I love everything I own. There were reasons I bought them. They are pretty. They are beautiful. They are unique. Or.... they were a good deal.
And what I've been selling is..
Things that I don't /can't wear. (too fancy, too delicate, etc)
Things that I haven't worn for a year.(kept telling myself, maybe I'll wear it next year)
Things that I probably don't wear this year.
Things that are too short on me.
Tops & Skirts, I don't wear them. They need some thinking to make outfits. And I do not have time for this. Dresses are easy to dress myself. Put it on, There, I am ready to go!!
Jackets. I have way too many. in CA? I don't need to wear jackets that often, and when I do, I am really cold, so I'd be wearing Patagonia or The North Face. That, my husband can buy for me..
And recently, I realized that I have too many belts and necklaces.
I used to wear belts a lot but not any more.. they are uncomfortable. lol
I just need few (maybe 10) that I use.
Necklaces, I keep buying them but I don't wear them that often. It hurts my daughter when she cuddles me. or I have to worry about breaking it. And when I try to go into the car, it scratches the car.
anyways, I don't need those.
and I do not wear heels.
I finally admit that I am clumsy, and have no balance.. and my husband hates heels.
I am only keeping Chie Mihara and some really nice heels for parties. I can just sit there and be fancy.
And this is my rules for shopping.
1: Do not buy skirts.
2: Do not buy tops.
3: Do not buy jackets.
4: Do not buy heels.
5: Do not buy necklaces.
6: Do not buy short dresses.
and most important rule of all..
7: Do not buy things because it's a great deal/on sale.
Just buy things that I don't mind paying full price. Otherwise, I do not need them.
With those rules, I do not have to love everything. I do not have to buy everything!!
That means I have more money to spend on what I use/wear and love.
And less things in my closet.
Do you have any rules you made for yourself??
