Self discoveries from the tidying goodbyes

I wish I had taken a picture of the things I threw out after reading Marie Kondo’s

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing

(Read my tidying post!)

I sold whatever I can at a thrift store and donated the rest.

Most of the things I sold were office wear, like blouses and boring cardigans.  It’s kind of nonsensical for me to do so, since I still work at an office. But they absolutely brought me no joy to continue being their owner.  I’m ready to explore opportunities that aren’t 9-5 🙂  I also tossed old make up and party dresses.

I’m still debating about these shoes though…. :]

ugly?
So ugly that it’s cute shoes!

I discovered that not much in my closet says me.  Currently, I’m looking for pieces that’s me.  I’m having a hard time because I don’t know what kind of style I have.  I have a wide range, but it’s not a signature look I love.  If I have to describe my style it would be:

bohemian/whimsical/romantic/edgy/badass/sexy without being revealing/I’m not even trying look.

#zara floral pants
Is this outfit “me” enough? shrugs.

Most of the clothes I own are workout gear.  I’m trying to avoid bargains and cheap forever21, h&m stuff.  I’m basically trying not to dress like a basic bitch, haha!  I want to own things I love.  I only want to welcome very good quality, perfect fitting items into my closet.  I want to learn how to not settle in any aspect of my life, starting with my wardrobe.  I don’t want to own anything subpar.

From tidying, I discovered I really like selling things.  It makes me so happy to take a picture of a product and post it.  I sold my Michael Kors Hamilton bag on craigslist.  That was my interview bag.  I sold two party clutches too, one at a thrift store, one on Poshmark.

Recently, I discovered the blogger: Sustainabledaisy, the title of her blog says it all!  She’s an inspiration for me to start being an environmentally friendly consumer.  My very good friend, Emily has an amazing wardrobe and she started a blog about travel, fashion and food.  Check her out and welcome her to the community!

    1. Actually, northern california has mirco-climates. it can be fall, spring and summer all year round like within a few miles. It can be super foggy and a block later could be super sunny! I kid you not! You always have to layer up.

    1. because f hates them and thinks they’re hideous, like uglier than grandma shoes. I keep them to torture him. haha! and my sister said it’s something a person from harlem would wear… lol
