Clothes (picture heavy public shaming)

I think I first realized, that Dan and I might have a problem with owning too many clothes back when we first moved in together. One morning, while laying in bed, I woke up to Dan yelling, "SHIIIITTTT" and then "fwoomp"! We were buried under a mountain of tee shirts. The shelf he had been cramming his hundreds of shirts onto had tilted towards our bed, and collapsed on top of us. We dug our way out, headed to the store, and bought a dresser. Seems the industrial shelving he was using (intended for garages) couldn't handle the clothing collection.
At the moment, we're in the process of converting the smallest bedroom in our house into a closet for my clothes. I feel I should offer some sort of justification. I used to play in a band, and playing twice a week, I couldn't go up on stage in the same thing over and over again right? Or the old, IT WAS ON SALE excuse. But really, the fact is, I own too many dang clothes. Clothing that I will probably never wear again. No matter how much weight I lose, my hips and thighs will never fit back into my size 3 jeans. (Or hell.... my size 7 jeans) I still have clothing that I wore in high school! The only excuse I have is that someday I want to have a daughter. And if she's anything like me, she would be totally into some of the clothes that I used to wear. I remember seeing pictures of dresses my mom and grandma wore and being totally upset that they were long gone!
Yesterday I finally started taking steps to orgainze the closet madness in my house...
Let me just shame myself publicly here shall I?

Yep. That's a fishnet shirt all right... Yea....


The sad thing is, most of these dresses have never been worn. That's my goal this summer, wear all my dresses!


I might have enough black boots. Maybe. That's about half of them anyway...


Closet is threatening to cave in on me...



Um, yea. I wore that shirt a LOT. All the time in high school in fact...



The skirt collection...



The hat collection... part of it anyway


I LOVE this dress. I would wear it, but the color is bad for me. My Grandma made it, and someday, I'm going to sit down and recreate it!




Apparently I'm awaiting a comeback from the grunge movement...


Never worn cute mod dress..



I counted over 40 pairs of shoes yesterday. FORTY! Holy hell...



Steve Madden is totally to blame for the shoe collection, fyi.


Oh wow. Silver heeled sneakers. I wore the heck out of those in high school...



I've never worn this dress, except in a photo shoot for Intake. WHY??? It's so freaking cool!



I found a shelf of never worn shoes. Being addicted to pink, I buy pink shoes. But then I never, ever know what to wear them with! I have a problem...

So yea, that was day 1 of organizing the closet. I did haul a bunch of stuff to goodwill, and gave a whole bunch of stuff to one of my employees to go through. Next weekend the goal is to go through the tubs of clothing that I never unpacked when we moved into the house....

  1. Oh my goodness, the personal organizer in me is so hot and bothered right now.

    Good for you!

  2. Somewhere in there, you may find a roaring 20s dress. If you do, it's mine.

  3. If you find a roaring 20s dress with a long string of beads, it's mine.
