Do you ever find yourself staring aimlessly in your closet, knee-deep in clothes only for that dreaded feeling to creep up? You know, the one where there’s absolutely nothing to wear?
It may not come as a surprise that I’m into clothes… and shopping (duh). First of all, I love having options, TONS of options. Second, I’m a huge traveler, and I love procuring totally unique pieces from around the world – Italian leather handbags, Parisian couture, you name it.
Let’s just say it became a slight problem when I realized I had enough clothing and accessories to dress Ft. Lauderdale… for a week. It’s 2018, and I was feeling a closet purge coming on. That dreaded feeling I mentioned earlier? Enough is enough. How many times have we been running late for an appointment and all we can manage to do is stand in our underwear in our closet and glare?
This time around it’s more than a mission to declutter. It’s also about shedding layers from the past that don’t belong lurking in our closets anymore. So, here’s a solution and a new year’s resolution for all of us! Enter: The Closet Purge.
There’s no better time than the present to make room for 2018’s trends. With that being said, I want to personally invite you all to shop my closet. Yes, my closet! I’m going to host my very own designer warehouse sale on January 13th and 14th. From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., I’m treating you lucky ladies (and gents) to deeply discounted designer apparel, handbags, shoes and accessories, all handpicked by me. You can expect high-fashion labels and pieces from my worldly travels adventures including Gucci, Fendi, Prada, Chanel, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Brioni and more. It gets better… I’m also offering awesome discounts on select Lilac And Lilies merchandise including styles from Veronica M, Gentle Fawn and Bishop + Young.
Now, before you go cray shopping my closet… let’s not forget about the one calling your name at home.
2018 is the year of change. It’s the year of finding you and embracing it. I don’t want to bring memories from the past into this new year (HELL NO). Commence with the purge (but this is a happy purge, not a scary purge).
“Where do you start?” you might ask? Take out everything you haven’t worn in a year. Yes really. The article of clothing you wore on that first kiss or the purse you took to that amazing event, both of which were never seen again… bye. Take it out and set it aside. Once you have those items stowed away, you will start to see things that are either way out of season or just not important to you. It’s okay to rid the things that aren’t you anymore and to make room for the new you.
Another great trick to follow is the 50/50 rule, which coincidences with the method above. KEEP half your wardrobe. TOSS half of your wardrobe. Are you still breathing? Maybe a glass of wine should be required with this one.
Keep versatile pieces, items you always wear and piece you’re genuinely excited about. Toss items you haven’t worn in a year and pieces you can’t wear over and over again.
2018 is the year you will shine, lovely. You will be the best version of yourself and will start it off with a fresh start. Will you join me in my fresh start happening on January 13th and 14th? I will be opening up my closet and ridding myself of the articles I held dear to my heart. My closet purge is your lucky day. See you soon!
