how to shop your closet

    Wonderful idea! I have, like many, been pinning ideas, but I think I’m going to take it one step further and print pics of fab target outfits to have available at a moment’s notice in my closet. I have been taking a leaf out of my mum’s book, and trimming my wardrobe down quite a bit. As we age, our lives change, so does the balance in our clothes. She always had a well coordinated, high quality range of classics with modern accessories..all within a relatively small number of actual pieces. She was always admired by our friends and her’s as she set a high bar, but on a very tight budget. Silver lining – you can buy that special item, because you’re not wasting funds.

      there’s always a special item that belongs in our closet. most likely, it will be passed down to the next generation which makes it all the more precious. xo

    BETH!! I loved this post today! Gives me inspiration with my own closet! While I don’t have the money to buy new based on your posts, It gives me new ideas to at least “shop” my own closet – and maybe swap out some older-more tired items :)!
    The outfits I loved the most are the ones where there isn’t too much going on – they look very sophisticated! Thanks again – PS love seeing Kelly on your site too!

    This post is so helpful to me. I’ve just realized that although I experimented a lot when I was younger with various fads, as I get older I prefer the tried and true pieces in my closet. They can get me through any event or gathering I have in my life.

    THIS is one of my most favorite of your blogs; I love classic clothing! I hope that we all learn to be more thoughtful and responsible consumers during and after this fragile time. Thanks Beth for your continued inspiration!

    I fully support the theory behind “slow fashion” but will suffer learning to give up shopping and the fun of wearing somethng new. I’ve always viewed classic dressing as missing out on all the fun. lol But I do love my madras shirts and shorts and just bought a gingham shirt. Just need somewhere to go!

      au contraire. classic style doesn’t miss a beat when it comes to fun! keep your eye on the trends and mix them into your existing wardrobe to stay fresh and modern. xo

    Some great tips here for shopping in your closet. I have been realizing more and more that I really do have tons of things I can vary in numerous different ways, and so I’ve been really being creative with what I already have, and the looks seem new when you do this. And I have shelves and shelves of pretty scarves and belts that I find can change a look in a second if I pair them with the right things. I could probably go for a very long time with what I already have, but here and there, I do love something new. It does help to figure out where you have any gaps in your wardrobe to maximize the possibilities of each item.

  9. I have started a purge of some of my least worn items, should I revisit them before donating them. I thought having more than 400 pieces might be to much clutter to make a sound decision. It was cluttered and I could not locate items because of the clutter. My question is should I possibly go down to 200 pieces that are classic and in good condition to be more efficient in shopping my closet .?
