It’s not quite Spring yet but everyone has caught the decluttering spirit of Kando. So today we invite you to edit your wardrobe some easy steps and you may find something else..personal style.
By Yvette E
In my defense, I don’t have much clothes but I do have alot of impulse buys, work clothes (no such thing) or a trend I just had to try but wasn’t adventurous enough to actually wear it. Sound familiar? These pieces take up alot of space, and with so many chances to get what like this season, we are offering 5 steps in figuring out what to keep and what to sell or donate.
Figuring out what to Keep
Kando says to keep what speaks to you but if your a fashionista in New York or another fashion oriented place, you have statement pieces and one offs that you don’t want to part.
If you have multiple styles of the same coat, skirt or pant, then it’s either your signature or comfort zone, these items go in the keep pile.
One off trends you wanted to try and never did can be sold on apps like Poshmark (labels only) or Depop (unusual). Use Ebay for really high end pieces.
To give torn or unwearable clothes a new life, Zara and H&M have boxes in store. The recycle your clothes for you.
Not just clothes
We often forget that we must also edit our Lingerie and Socks as well especially because they get the most wear. First get measured at Victoria Secret to make sure your wearing the right size, for years I knew the size had changed but was unaware how much…I went up a whole size from B to C without giving birth.
The lingerie that fits and doesn’t have wholes as well as the bras that retained the underwire or are fine without it.
Bras and other unmentionables aren’t sellable nor will Goodwill take them.
Soma is taking gently worn (no wholes, underwire bents or sticking out) till February 8th. Online places like Bras for a cause and Bra Recyclers can take gently use (BFC) or destroyed ones (BR) off your hands.
For underwear and socks, recycle them at https://www.terracycle.com/en-US/zero_waste_boxes/fabrics-and-clothing which will send a box.
Happy Monday!! 💋
