Wardrobe Detox – Part 4

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4

The final part!

OK, so I know I do actually have a “dresses and coats” wardrobe in the spare room which I haven’t actually even looked at, but this is my working wardrobe and all my clothes that I wear regularly.

I have simplified down to 119 items.

119 items!

And that includes belts, knickers, socks and bras people 😉

Wanna see a pic?

I figure I have a little “wearing-out” room, as ideally I’d like to pare it down to a nice, even 100 items. I’m going to try not to replace things that get worn out (I have at least one pair of dodgy knickers and a belt that is barely hanging together), so this list should gradually shrink to my goal.

Here’s my inventory.

Clothing

  • 10 bras
  • 23 pairs knickers
  • 5 pairs short socks
  • 5 pairs long socks
  • 1 pair welly socks
  • 2 pyjama sets (top + trousers)
  • 1 waterproof jacket
  • 2 gilets (1 white, 1 blue)
  • 2 zip-up long sleeve tops
  • 1 cowl-neck jumper
  • 2 dressy cardigans (1 black, 1 white)
  • 3 pairs jeans
  • 2 pairs black trousers
  • 1 long winter cardi
  • 1 sparkly scarf
  • 3 winter scarves
  • 4 thermal tops
  • 1 shirt
  • 1 long sleeve top
  • 13 short sleeve tops/t-shirts
  • 8 sleeveless tops

Footware

  • 1 pair wellies
  • 1 pair winter boots
  • 1 pair slippers
  • 1 pair trainers
  • 1 pair wedding shoes (from my wedding!)
  • 1 pair walking boots
  • 2 pairs heels (1 black, 1 blue)
  • 3 pairs flats (black, red, brown)
  • 1 pair flat sandals
  • 3 pairs strappy sandals
  • 2 pairs flip flops

Other

  • 2 clutch bags
  • 1 smart handbag
  • 7 belts (1 metallic, 3 black, 3 brown)
  • 1 sun hat

I do have a lot of shoes. However, I didn’t want to be too ruthless with shoes because I am a UK 3/4 and it’s really hard to find nice shoes that fit my tiny feet.

I have kept most of my shoes with an agreement with myself that I will try to wear them all more often.

And finally:

In my tidy-up I chucked out a tiny bit more:

  • 5 plastic skirt hangers (now all my hangers are wooden)

Which takes my TOTAL ITEMS OUT to:

100 items!

Fab.
