I Think I’m In Love…

…With my closet.

Happy Valentine’s Day beautiful people. It is the day of love, and just because I’m single doesn’t mean I don’t have any. I’m surrounded with love from my sweet daughter, my dog who is currently being sneaky and eating my sweet daughter’s Valentines candy, and my bomb ass closet.Yeah, I said it. I freaking love my closet and it loves me.

Like many long standing relationships, things can become monotonous and boring. To revitalize that, you have to let go of what isn’t working and have more of what you love. That’s exactly what I did with my closet. I think everyone, has clothes in their closet that were purchased and never worn The excuses are plentiful.   “It’ll fit one day”or my big reason, “I’m just waiting for the right occasion.”

Last week, I stopped making excuses and dumped anything I don’t wear or haven’t worn. Unless, I absolutely loved it. The dress I have on in the pictures is among the pieces that were up for consideration. I just loved it and it fit so well. I would even venture to say it’s my favorite. I could not let someone else wear it before I got the chance. It is an ASOS dress. I bought it last year around Valentines Day. I never wore it, because I didn’t see an opportunity. So I made an occasion. A photo shoot of me in my favorite dress.

When I clean my closet, I sale my unwanted clothes on eBay. If they are just old tee shirts or unbranded pieces I will donate them to the local Goodwill or Salvation Army. Now that all the neglected, bad, and ugly have been cleansed, my closet is full of life and love again. It makes me all tingly inside thinking about what I will wear next.
