Is your wardrobe making you happy or sad?

If we only wear 20% of our wardrobe 80% of the time, do our wardrobes need to be so cluttered & bulging at the seams?? Many of us hold on to clothing as some form of emotional attachment, which trust me is why it makes cleaning out OUR OWN wardrobe near impossible! So what is it about the garment that makes us keep it? Is it the price you paid for it? The durability of the product? The history it holds, about us, about a certain time? (Maybe back in our skinny mini days???) Ahhhhh!!! Holding on to clothing you don’t wear can actually do more harm than good in some cases! Have you ever opened your wardrobe only to be faced with an item you immediately feel bad about. Maybe it’s a whole bunch of dresses that don’t fit you anymore, or the top that reminds you of a bad experience in your life. This keeps you stuck in the past, so giving up those items that don’t serve who you are in the present, will actually help you love and value the person you are today. So let me ask you this. When you open your wardrobe each morning, does it make you happy or sad?? Clothing must be used as a tool to make us feel good and boost our mood. I always encourage my clients to create a wardrobe full of pieces that make them feel a certain way, because what you wear affects your self-esteem. When you dress like a dag, you feel like a dag! What makes YOU keep your clothes?

  • • Such a pleasure shopping with this gorgeous lady! She loves dresses, but what she really wanted was items that worked a wee bit harder so we mixed and matched away! 3 pants, 6 tops, 1 pair of shoes and I think I counted at least 15 outfit variations with these items alone 😁💪🏻 #lovemyjob #personalstylist #personalshopper #smartshopping #mixandmatch #wearwhatmakesyoufeelgood #melbournestylist

  • • What to wear when it’s going to be 37 degrees, grey and sticky? Opt for something floaty and avoid anything tightly fitted as it may just make you a little sticky. I’m wearing my fave @decjubaofficial dress and minimized the fabric by knotting it instead of wearing a belt, that will just stick to my body and make me sticky and hotter💧 Off I go to hit the shops with a gorgeous new client, then ending my day with a lucky lady who was gifted a package for Xmas by her very thoughtful partner. We will start with a consult and wardrobe review to figure out what gaps we need to fill next week! • #smartshopping #personalstylist #wearwhatmakesyoufeelgood #dresswithconfidence #personalshopper #outfitinspo #outfit #summerstyle
