White Noise

I've decided that there's a lot of white noise in my closet.  Oftentimes I find myself standing in front of some rather nice items but not inspired to don any of them.  Not quite a "I've got nothing to wear" moment but more of a "I don't really feel like wearing any of these things, either right now or anymore, so why are they taking up space in my closet?" moment.
   I'm on the verge of a purge.  I've started with some of the things in my drawers but have to yet to declare open season on my closet.  There will most likely be four categories:  1) Stay - I love you!,  2) Ebay - someone else will pay to love you, 3) Donation - love thy neighbour, and 4) The tweeners - not quite ebay love yet more than a freebie.  Basically, category four will be the clothes that I'd like to sell or trade to my friends in a sort of "placement" program.  I'm still working on a viable model for that exchange.
   In the meantime, I'm thinking about the kinds of clothes I really respond to, what I'd like to see on my rails, and how to push myself further.  I'll post some photos of category four items as they come up.


  1. That sounds like a formidable task Claudia. I wish you best of luck with the completion of your task. And to the Flyers!

  2. I feel the same way about my closet. Maybe we can send one another telepathic messages of support.
