wardrobe

on Amazon about a year and a half ago .
It's been maybe two years ago and I'll link it in the description box I love it I've wanted a closet in my bedroom for years and I'm so happy I turned this corner into my own little shopping arcade and I just wanted to take the chance to do something dee p cleaning is the perfect time when you're

decluttering

and

organizing

to just clean these things that don't normally get a chance to be cleaned, so I mopped the floors a bit, got the baseboards, and then did all of that. just put things in place thought i'd try it on that wall but ended up thinking its actually better the way it's arranged now this mirror is something i found when i was on a hike too about a year ago and I kind of wanted to buy one of these four length mirrors they are so expensive and someone was giving it away they were clearing it out and it was my lucky find so I have an idea how I want to organize myself getting all the hangers out of the closet and making sure I have absolutely everything was out of the closet so i went ahead and emptied my laundry basket just to make sure there wasn't anything in there i also wanted to drop and also took all the hangers out of the closet just so i could n get a count and take inventory of everything I have in there in terms of clothes so really now I'm just going to do yes not lots yes it's the things I'm keeping or things I'm going to throw away do nar or sell and I can fix that later but right now I'm just doing yes no if you want to do a quick clean of your clothes I think this is the quickest way to pick up each item. and make a yes or no decision after you have made your nose decision then you can decide well i am going to try to sell this i am going to give it to a friend i am going to donate it to what am i going to do with it but this first phase of deciding yes or no really makes the process go super fast and keeps you from feeling overwhelmed because you're just making a decision yes or no that's it this is the clothes i'm saying. bye let me explain how i made this decision because these are things i saved for last time so this jumpsuit doesn't fit me i said if it didn't fit in six months i'd let it go and it doesn't fit so it still has the tag on it never been off used and it's from nordstrom i'm off to take it there and see if i can return it if not then i'll try to sell it at crossroads and then if not see if a friend wants it but i doubt it's like that unique style.
People wouldn't wear this but I think it would look cool I'd love to wear it but it doesn't fit so I'm waving this off it doesn't fit maybe I can return it. I love this shirt. I've worn it a lot, the only reason I'm leaving it is because it has a little discoloration on the back, like I'm self-conscious about that bleach stain on the back of the shirt, so I'm going to. i'm going to let this one go these pants don't button all the way i have to go actually not so these pants fit me but they're too tight so they're too tight i'll never wear them i still have the tag on them though they're from zara So I don't think they will accept them.
I'll see if I can sell them at Crossroads if I don't donate another Zara. Bye. I just want to pause the video real quick here to say that I. I've had a really horrible habit of buying clothes that are too small and that's why I have so many items that have the tag, even when I've been a size smaller I always buy an item one size smaller and it's a way of deny. myself from my current body and just live in this fantasy idea of ​​what i will one day be and i have to consciously stop doing it every time i go shopping even to this day ok go on it is a great jacket , I have a friend.
I think who would want this if not. I could try to sell it. I held on to this thinking it's something I might wear one day, but honestly blazers don't look that great on me right now, they just look super boxy for my figure as a blazer. this doesn't do anything for me i don't think i'll ever wear it it's too tight it's also too small so a lot of it is just clothing that's too small. I feel like a teenager would wear this. You know what I'm going to give my niece. I love this t-shirt. there are no items in my pile that i don't fit and expected to fit in now i don't fit in and really don't want to now i'm better mentally where i really don't want to hold on to clothes that don't fit me right now i'd rather have a closet full of clothes that currently does it fit my current body now six months from now if i have a slimmer and fitter body can i buy myself something new say goodbye to these form fitting bodycon dresses because i dont want to wear something i have to sink my neck into stomach or where I have to feel uncomfortable and wear shapewear underneath like really tight shapewear and yeah it's super uncomfortable ok? shirts i'm getting rid of this one has a hole it was really worn out this one has coffee residue on it ns i have shirts that have stains that have set in um you know what i don't know i want to try washing this one one more time actually oh god it's like that that oh no i'm getting rid of that uh i'm gonna let go of this tattered t-shirt and these overalls have gum on the bottom and i've tried to get it out i've tried to freeze it wash it i think i'm over this style these jeans and my latest mess of clothes i said i don't like them very much but i wear them because they fit me but um i really don't like them like i always have to pull these jeans up when i wear them so they'll disappear this. the sweater looks very worn and, yes, I feel scruffy when I wear this.
I bought it like at a flea market. A lady gave it to me for free when I passed by. It's a man's shirt. I don't know why I said yes to that other ratty T-shirt, pajama shorts, that's actually two big ones for me, so I ditch that loungewear duo set. I don't like short tops, so I ditch anything. it's like a crop top this is a crop top forget rid of it this kind of thing is like a crop top to get rid of this little tank top is like very little to get rid of it's kind of like stiff buttons i have another button up i kept the pink silk one i kept but this one it's too stiff i said i'd use it i haven't used it it's been six months this is the pile i'm not going to divide into the things i want to return the things i want to sell and the things i'm going to donate and the things i'm going to throw away the garbage will go in the garbage bag with the shoes doing that now here are my three piles these are the clothes that I am cleaning and the shoes that I am cleaning we have this pile this is to donate this pile which are things that I am going to sell because They still have tags on them and then this garbage bag pole that's full of clothes that are stained or have holes in them and shoes that are too beat up and just need to be thrown away the only other two items I have are this jumpsuit which i'm going to return to nordstrom and this jean jacket that i know my niece will love and i'm going to give her ok so now i'm just going to go through the rest of the clothes that i keep and organize in this little closet foot.
I don't think everything will fit there, but I'll do my best. Okay, I have a lot of hangers left over because I've sorted my clothes a lot. and even with all the mess i've made the truth is i still feel like i only wear 10 to 20 of my wardrobe you know when you go on a trip and bring a bunch of things with you and then you end up wearing like 10 to 20 like that It's how I wear my wardrobe so it's something that I'm going to work on changing and I really want to show p more I intentionally buy clothes that fit my body clothes that I can wear every day in my day to day life because the other thing that I do is buy clothes for special occasions so if I go out somewhere or if there is an event I have outfits for that but I don't have clothes that I can feel good in every day so that's something I'm working on my personal life but in the meantime I'm just making use of what I have a bunch of clothes that I love that are beautiful and fit me well and those are the ones I want to keep on display to encourage me to wear those items more often , so this first round of setting is I didn't finish your wardrobe I just tried to put all my clothes on the hangers but it was too much to fit in there so I had to put some in the closet and that made me want to clean out the closet so it ended up being a two project days, just know that it's normal for cleaning to take longer than you think. ink, it will take and that's why I like to carve out time to do something like this, it wasn't a huge amount of time total, I think the whole process took me maybe two or three hours, yeah, about three hours total, but now i have it all set up in a way that is really functional and really beautiful and makes sense to my life i got rid of a few more things this black t-shirt this blue t-shirt is a little too short and this brown t-shirt is like too tight so three T-shirts plus four broken belts and hangers are there, so the next day I decided to at least turn the closet into a space I could walk in. and organize it properly, but I wanted to give myself the gift of at least having a floor I could walk on, so I just took out all the items, there is no way to clean or clear it, but I just wanted to at least clear the floor. so i can stand in my fucking closet so t that's what i'm doing here there's a bunch of stuff in this closet because it's my main room for storage so you'll see i have towels in there i have blankets i have extra pillows for when friends come over to visit me I have my camera equipment I have my ring light I have tons of paperwork steam irons there are all kinds of things in there candles jewelry swimwear you know there are a lot of things in this closet and a lot that need to be sorted um so yeah, just stay tuned for that video because it's coming, coming, I promise one thing at a time and it's these little changes that really make a big difference, I keep my sandals and any shoes I'm not really going to wear. this time of year it's ok here you'll see there's a difference i mean this is the after and no we're kind of done but you'll also see i have fewer clothes and a lot of extra hangers i'm probably going to have to donate some of those hangers . i'm going to do those and in another video i'll tackle those top shelves now i'm setting up my

capsule

wardrobe these are the pieces i'm working with what i did was just select the items that i know look good on me right now and that feels good to me and comfortable because i have clothes that fit me well i'm not really comfortable in maybe i need to tone up a bit whatever my own issues i know but let me have my issues ok i am a complex person living a very simple life so I'm just setting this up in a way that makes me feel inspired and but yeah, all I'm putting on this shelf is everything I need to get dressed for the next month or two.
