Welcome to another edition of Wardrobe Attacker!
I went to one of my good friends house and while the men did work on the house downstairs we got right into her wardrobe.
Now this girl has a challenge to get the volume of clothes down to items that she can wear to work easily but still retain the cool items she has in her wardrobe.
We got to work pretty quickly and I quickly noticed that she had a lot of dresses. Now for her work dresses are perfect, with tights and a cardy look really sweet and work appropriate for the office. Plus she has some really cool patterned dresses, and the great thing about patterns is that it does the job for you, all you have to do is find a great belt to put around your waist to define it and then you are away!!
We also started sorting items into a holiday wardrobe. Over in the UK as it doesn’t get particularly hot people tend to go for the big summer holiday. People will specifically go out and get stuff for their holidays. Now some of this stuff might be alright to wear in the UK but most of it is purely for Spain and other hot countries (Hi NZ!). Sort your holiday only items into a pile (as we did) and hang it or fold it in another place.
As always, there is a pile of items to try on again. Here you can determine if you still like it, fit it, or want it. If you think you want to keep it, find three items in your wardrobe to wear it with and you’ll never go wrong. Also make sure there are no holes or damage to the clothing.
You can also do a gym/sunday chilling pile. This is good for your baggy t-shirts, trackies, and holey items if you are desperate to keep them.
We managed to get through a lot of clothes and at the end had a sizeable pile to throw away/donate. I recommend holding the items in your house for a week, looking through again and making sure that you want to donate them. This means that you will definitely know!
This wardrobe was very fun to do and thanks to my lady friend for participating!!
