My Wardrobe-part 2

Hi everyone!! Following on from my 'Whats in your wardrobe?' post back in June, I was inspired by the lovely Kate of Make Do Style when she wrote this excellent post -'Size matters(2)' regarding an overstacked wardrobe and the concept of 'Slow Fashion'-this is a must read, after you've finished here of course, LOL!!

Basically, because of the summer holidays, I've had time to re-evaluate my wardrobe with autumn looming and also to sell more items, including ones that I had acquired during my 'Buy on Ebay when I'm bored' habit. I've also passed on some more unwanted pieces to the charity shop to make way for recent thrifting purchases that will provide longevity in my wardrobe.

This is my wardrobe after my main sort out, the top wardrobe houses my favourite tops, jackets, dresses, jeans and handbags at the bottom.


This wardrobe has my winter and summer jackets and coats and remains mainly unchanged from last time.


These are the remaining drawers of clothes, which have summer dresses, tops and tees, woollies (cardi's and jumpers), summer skirts and blouses.


So, with reference to my first wardrobe post, I'd mentioned a summer wishlist and also a lack of costume jewellery. I have a lovely little collection of necklaces and bracelets now and regarding the wishlist, here is what I did get from it:

Dark indigo bootcut style jeans

Navy and white striped Breton tee

Leopardprint shoes

Denim waistcoat

I still haven't found red shoes I like enough to get yet.

My autumn wishlist consists of 2 items:

Black heeled ankle boots

Denim shirt

I've acquired a few black pieces in my wardrobe these past couple of months, notably a black pencil skirt, my black vintage Thierry Mugler jacket, black bodycon woollen Benetton dress and some gorgeous black heeled knee high leather boots.

I've learnt 'for me', that less is more-I like to look at a glance to see what I've got and be appreciative of the gorgeous pieces I've acquired over time. Some do not get worn for a while, but will have a long term place in my wardrobe.

What is your wardrobe philosophy?

OMG! I'm jealous! YOU are sooo organized! My closet is a total mess, why it takes me forever to find things! Now that I have seen your closet I'm inspired to organized mine too, of course it's going to take me the rest of the Summer to do so!
PS: My wardrobe philosophy is mixing the new with the old and wearing fab soles!

Sal said...

I so admire your tidy, organized wardrobe ... but I've gotta say I prefer to have LOTS of options, myself!

I need a wardrobe revamp! My closet is a disgrace right now! Congrats on your beautiful job.

smashingbird said...

ok, now you've made me feel bad. I wish I was this organized!

AsianCajuns said...

I think "Less is More" is a great philosophy and I'm trying to follow it too! Your closet is an inspiration, Sharon!

Savvy Gal said...

my gosh you are so organized. i will try to organize once a season but the organization becomes more disorganized as the weeks progress.... : (

Make Do Style said...

Your first pick looks uber sophisticated! Brilliantly organised.

Winnie said...

You are amazingly organised. I have one built in wardrobe which is bursting! I don't have room for a chest of drawers so I'll need to think about re-evaluating what I do/don't need!

Sher said...

Amazing!

I'm trying to get one of my kids to move out so I can take over their bedroom as a closet LOL!

casual cutie said...

OMG...you have so many collection!! i'm so jealous with you!!!!!!

WendyB said...

My wardrobe philosophy? Buy great things, keep them forever, never worry about what I "should" have or "shouldn't" have. I've regretted not buying/giving away things more than I have buying/keeping things.

I used to weed out my closet a lot when I had junk clothes...with great pieces, you don't have to do that!

Sharon, I'm also trying to reorg alittle bit. Since my son has moved out I now have this room to convert into a office / closet. That helped me out big time or else I would have had to purge even more then I already have.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi budget chic, its great that you have some space to do this now!!

Trees said...
