Few days ago, I was cleaning out my closet and shoe cabinet yet again. The size of my wardrobe is still far from ideal, but I am getting there slowly but surely. The one thing I realized is that I had so much clothes and shoes I’ve never once worn. And while it is so easy to get caught up in chasing the latest trends and giving into compulsive buying, it’s sometimes always good to slow down. Take a step back, take a moment to think. Do I already have something similar in my wardrobe that I can change up a bit and wear again? Be honest to yourself – the answer is almost always yes. Especially if you have years and years of senseless shopping behind you. Apply a bit of your creativity and you can have an old-but-brand-new-looking item in no time.
I already showed you how you can update the pieces you already own (remember these studded flats and the simple black bag?) by adding things to them. Today, I took a different approach: instead of adding, I simply removed what I thought was unnecessary. Now these sandals from 2009 no longer have a time stamp on them and are versatile enough to be worn more often.

I totally agree, I’m always in a constant state of editing my wardrobe. One day it will be where I want it to be, but styles changes so quickly in women’s fashion.
