the Unwanted

Lately I've been thinking about how much I hate my closet.
I know it sounds harsh and crazy, but it's the truth. 
The more I see it, the more I can't stand it.

Everytime I have to get out of the house (which is, like, all the time) I'm facing the same annoying question: what should I wear? And all that is not because I'm indecisive (I'm not) or because I care what others might think of my choices (again, not) but it's simply because I don't like what I see when I look at my clothes. For most of the stuff in there it's as if it's someone else's closet. 

Of course, there are several pieces I loooove and wear all the time, over and over again (some of them very old, some brand new). But those are only couple of pieces in comparison to hundreds (yes, hundreds unfortunately) of those I can't stand. 
Don't get me wrong, I don't buy or own ugly stuff but somehow (and I still can't believe I've allowed myself to fall into this trap) most of my clothes don't reflect me at all. It's actually such a sad thought.

And that realization came as a true shock.
So I decided to get to the bottom of an issue, because it was a big issue that just had to be solved (you can't just allow yourself to walk around feeling average or shitty)
I took it ALL out (it was a big pile of mess) and decided that most of these things I don't need. That, if somehow they happen to disappear over night, I wouldn't care. 

It was time for an intervention.

I made a pile out of stuff I adore (because that's what you should be wearing on a daily basis, the clothes you love so much it makes you feel awesome) and decided to ignore the rest. I made a promise to myself that I will no longer buy something just because it's on a sale or it's really cheap ( that way you end up with cluttered closet and still nothing to wear )
I will no longer listen to anyone who says 'Don't spend xxx amount of money on that, it's not worth it.' because at the end of the day I'm the only one who's walking around in my shoes and the only thing that matters is how I feel about them. 

So, that'll be my style mission in the next couple of months.
Maybe I'll have fewer things, but one thing's sure: those'll be the things I love and wear feeling great about myself. Plus Mattie & Mo stuff. They make me feel the best.

And the rest of it?
I'll probably try to sell them because that clothes deserves someone who's gonna love them and wear them just in the right way.

  3. Super da si to napravila jer i sama mislim da je bolje imati manje robe, ali kvalitetne i one koju ces i nakon 5 godina pozeljeti izvuci iz ormara i "prosetati", nego imati pun ormar robe koja ti ne pristaje/ "nije mi bas nesto"/ nemas s cim iskombinirati/ nije to die for.

  4. Mislim da se to većini nas događa...jednostavno nakupimo stvari koje ne trebamo. Moj glavi problem je što čuvam svašta jer uvijek imam ideje kako to iskoristiti...a naravno ne mogu posvetiti svo vrijeme tome tako da zapravo čuvam hrpu stvari koju ne koristim...Nekad jednostavno treba reći dosta i pobacati/donirati/prodati sve to što nam se nakupilo u ormaru i po kući. Jednostavno svima nam treba praktičan prostor (i ormar) koji nam neće komplicirati nego olakšati život.

    E, kako je sve to lako reći:) dala sam se u filozofiju, a i ja se moram baciti u čišćenje podhitno.

  5. Razumijem te u potpunosti... i ja sam se nasla prije koju godinu u slicnome `problemu` i odlucila se za sezonske cistke stvari koje ( iako su mi lijepe) ne nosim uopce ili vrlo malo... prva je bila najveca, ali sada izbacim tek pokoju stvar i to primarno ako je dotrajala... ali da, najgore je kad kupis tek toliko da kupis i onda ne nosis! Sada izbjegavam i snizenja ili kupujem tek nesto sto sam jako htjela a bilo mi je preskupo, a slucajno je ostalo ( sto je rijetko ali zna se dogoditi) :-)

  6. Ja srecom nemam takvih problema, skoro sve sto imam i nosim, al ja stvarno kupujem samo ono sto mi se bas jako svidja ili sto mi nuzno treba da ne hodam okolo bez icega XD

  7. I ja se trudim da redovno praznim svoj ormar od stvari koje ne nosim, ali mi se uvek nakupi gomila. Ipak, napredujem u odnosu na period od pre par godina, tada mi je bilo žao maltene svega da bacim.
    Tako da, samo napred!

  8. I go through my closet every few months and always wind up with LOADS of stuff to donate. Why keep stuff that you'll never wear? :)

  9. Podržavam tvoju ideju o prodaji stvari, pogotovo ako ih ne nosiš ili ako se loše osjećaš u toj odjeći...ne sekiraj se manjim brojem odjevnih komada..bude čak i lakše kombinirati kad ih je manje :P

    Prije mjesec dana jedna je frendica pravila čistku ormara i dobila sam na poklon jaknu, onaj heklani trokut što si mogla vidjeti na blogu-iz kojeg ne izlazim, kao i cvijetnu bijelu košulju, isto kao i majicu u kojoj sam sada i jos hrpeštinu stvari koje, zapravo, nosim...tako da ti držim fige da se što prije riješiš svega što ti samo stvara nered u ormaru i to podijeliš/prodaš ljudima koji neće izlaziti iz te odjeće :D
