Closet cleaning

So today, I’m cleaning out my closet to sell a few skirts I no longer wear, but why is it so hard??? I’m starting to get all sentimental about these skirts. Three of them, I’ve only ever worn once so I’m not that attached– other than thinking “Oh, but what if someday I need the skirt again?”

But this one skirt… I don’t know, I’ve wore it a ton last year, but I haven’t worn it…. for almost a year. And I realize it’s not the most flattering skirt on me, and the pattern is not my kind of pattern at all, and it’s shorter than I’d like it to be… but you guys, I still love this skirt.


It was, so far as I can remember, part of the first outfit to get me into the style gallery on Chictopia, and it survived through countless hours as a barista without one stain on it, an it transformed from hideously ugly shorts into a cute little skirt, and oh, memories.

But the truth is, I haven’t worn it in a year, and when I put it on now it makes this weird little puff right above my butt which is NOT flattering, and I’m not really attracted to that pattern any more.

Why is it so hard to get rid of clothes?

I am also going to put these three babies up in my shop soon, so long as I can convince myself that I don’t wear or need them any more.

I dunno, that red and white striped one… I might style it up today and see how I like it. But I’ve only worn it once.

I know the rule is that if you haven’t worn it in six months (or a year), you don’t need it, but dang that’s a hard rule to follow. And also, the “one in, one out” rule is hard, too. Maybe I’ll drag Mr. Owl into it and make him decide for me. If he doesn’t like the skirt, it goes. If he does like the skirt, it stays.

Do you guys have similar issues getting rid of clothes? Does it help to get your significant other’s opinion? Do you follow any closet rules for keeping and getting rid of things?

I hope you are all having a lovely Monday!
