{ Wardrobe overhaul & sale part 1 }

Around 2-3 times a year I do a wardrobe clean out where I go through my entire wardrobe and either donate or sell the things that are just wasting space. Most of the time it's because I no longer like the particular piece, but I also clear out the things I feel no longer suit me, and things I haven't worn in over nine months.

Around this time last year was the first time I seriously decluttered my wardrobe, with the help of Gala Darling's Wardrobe Taming guide. I found this guide immensely helpful as I was overwhelmed by the sheer amount of stuff I had collected in my teens and just did not know where to start.

After getting my wardrobe more under control after the first major overhaul, I now go over it at the beginning of every Spring, Autumn and New Year. I have put up the first lot of clothing that hasn't been donated on my Shop Sushi blog; mostly dresses, skirts and shorts. I also went through all my old shoes that have been in storage for years so will be putting up many pairs of 80's and 90's relics in Part 2!

I really should do the same, however I always seem to throw things out that I want to wear down the track!

I clean put my closet all the time. Mostly because it gets messy very quickly, and I can't stand to not have control over it. So I always find something to throw out as I buy new stuff. Mostly like old sweatpants and t-shirts, not like dresses and skirts and such. It's very handy for you to have a shop then!

My poor husband hates when I clean out the closet as it means that it's new season shopping time again :)

I too clean my closet every season. If I haven't worn the item once and can't make anything out of it, then it's got to go. I would love to sell them but am worried that if I don't want it, no one else will :(

Hey! I just wanted to say that I just found your site and I LOVE your clothes! I've spent the last hour+ looking at the old entries!

I wish I had the guts to dress how I really want, which is similar to what you wear, but no one here dresses that way so I feel awkward.
SOOOO cute! <3

Hi! Thanks for your sweet comments while I was away! Sorry it's taken me a while to answer them!

Re: Chloe wedges - I found mine on ebay (such a lucky find, as they're many seasons old yet they were brand new, never worn).

Re: links - I'd love to exchange links with you!

:)

Hope you had a fab xmas & new year's!

sushi dear, I'm doing exactly the same thing as you, just did a summer clean of my wardrobe and trying to justify keeping pieces of clothing that I really could do without since I haven't worn it in a while.

So, for being fashion inspiration, I'm awarding you the 'over the top' award! visit my blog to see what you need to do to pass this award along xo

p.s. can't wait to receive the miu miu inspired skirt

Megan - Glad you like my blog hon :) To be honest, I felt exactly the same way a year or so ago. But now I'd rather stand out a bit and be happy with the way I look rather than blend in and be 'normal' hehe x Sushi

Brigadeiro - Thanks for letting me know. Ah one day I will find them! Added you to my blogroll too x Sushi

mashi - Oh thanks very much :) Good luck with your closet cleaning x Sushi

thimbles and gingham - Me too, once I get into it. It's very satisfying being left with more space and better things to choose from x Sushi
