So yesterday I tackled my wardrobe. With the enthusiasm of a mixed teams D grade football player. But it had to be done. Last week I worked four days in a row and every day I grabbed one hundred outfits off a multitude of hangers, tried them on and threw them on the floor. Needless to say my wardrobe was looking more like a floordrobe. With the incentive of some retail therapy once the job was done, I kicked off.
As I began hanging, sorting, culling and folding I began thinking. This was a big job there was lots of time to ponder. Does anybody have a perfectly organised wardrobe? That stays that way? Seriously? I have been all kinds of closet case
1. Practically Perfect. All clothes on matching hangers, primarily sorted by type but also sorted according to the colours of the rainbow. Everything fits, everything is in fashion. Ok who I am kidding this has never happened to me, but a girl can dream.
2. Sort of Sorted. Everything is sorted by type. Occasionally an item slips off a wonky hanger and remains on the floor for a few days. Clothes are folded but tend to accumulate in mismatched piles. You try to have an organised wardrobe, but it’s not high on the priority list.
3. Happy Hoarder. I have clothes. They are in a wardrobe. If I haven’t worn it this month, it is hanging, that’s my system. Most things fit, but I have clothes that are pre baby, maternity and post baby because you never know when I will loose that baby weight. If you look closely you will find I still have my stonewashed high wasited jeans from 1989 and a Hypercolour T-Shirt.
I must admit I have lived in the last three closets at some time in my life. Generally somewehere between Despeerately Delusional and Happy Hoarder.
So what kind of closet case are you?
No judgement people, after all I had stonewashed jeans!
