02 The Inspired Wardrobe: One Drawer At A Time

02 The Inspired Wardrobe: One Drawer At A Time

Eager with my new found resolve to clean my mess up, I started with the dresser.

That immediately seemed like too much. I have drawers that don’t close completely because they are so jammed with stuff.

So… one drawer at a time. Just one drawer.

I chose the top right drawer because this was the drawer that I honestly had no idea what was in it.

Ready to find out? It’s kinda embarrassing…

  • 4 pairs of black stockings
  • 1 package (unopened) of thigh high stockings

I’m just going to pause here for a moment. Seriously? Thigh high stockings? When? Why?

Moving on…

  • 3 super casual summer dresses
  • 4 belts I never wear
  • a bikini top
  • a super cute royal blue bathing suit cover up
  • a Spanx shaper
  • 4 different tank tops I’ve never worn
  • 4 pairs of nude panty hose… because I love them? No idea…
  • 3 pairs of “boobs” (the padded inserts that go into sports bras and some tops)
  • 1 sad “boob” with no pair

After emptying this one drawer, I carefully put back 2 of the dresses, the panty hose, shaper and boobs. Everything else was donated or trashed. Except for the royal blue cover up. I’d wear that on a cruise, if I knew I had it. Man. It is now on top of my dresser until I find a home.

I’m not sure if this how I want this drawer organized, but it’s a start. You gotta just start.

Today one drawer…. tomorrow the whole another drawer!

Join me on this journey and let’s really get to know ourselves and our unique style in the process.

    You are on to something going through one drawer at a time. Otherwise it is overwhelming! Am following with great interest.

    You really have me rethinking my whole wardrobe. I discovered I have 1 pair of dark brown pants, 1 pari of dark brown shoes, 1 pair of brown tights, 2 pairs of brown pantyhose ( I don’t even wear pantyhose anymore), 2 pairs of brown socks and 3 pairs of brown knee highs. I have worn the pants, shoes and knee highs maybe twice since September 2017. Question to me, ” why are these items still in my wardrobe and why so much leg wear”? All of this is now out of my closet and in a donation bag. What will I find next????
