Living for over a month in the Little Red Dress helped me understand this: Less REALLY is more. When I only had the option of one dress, it cut my outfit decisions down to a bare minimum. In fact, I took everything out of my closet and only put clothing back in I knew would go with the little red dress. It made my small closet roomier and outfits easier to find.
After the experiment ended and I started putting clothes back in my closet; I was overwhelmed with the amount. Evaluating them before putting them on the rack, I discovered there were many items that didn't fit right, or that I didn't love. I just started tossing into the giveaway bag. I happened to discover The No Brainer Wardrobe *ebook right about that time and it helped my decision-making process immensely!
Tip #1: Get rid of EVERYTHING you don't feel completely beautiful in.
You might think this is extreme but honestly, are you going to wear it if you feel slouchy or ugly in it? No. And if you're struggling to let go, consider this: you'll pull on that piece of clothing and spend your day uncomfortable because you feel slouchy or ugly. We don't want that! So pleeeeease toss it. Remember that someone else could find it and love it; then you're helping them feel beautiful!
Let's Chat: Do you toss unused items naturally? Or is it difficult for you to get rid of things you've had for awhile?
