I'm cleaning out my closet. Any must-haves I should keep/purchase? Thanks! x
Hi! Some of must haves I’d suggest having include:
basic tees - white, grey, black!
two or three sweaters - alternate during the colder months. It is generally a good idea to have a mixture of thickness so you can wear some on their own and others under a jacket.
jeans - for me I love black skinny jeans and highwaisted jeans - however depending your preference you might prefer boyfriend jeans or mom jeans. Having 3-4 pairs that you can alternate between is great.
jacket - the easiest to style would have to be either a leather, denim or parka jacket - those would be my top recommendations for keeping or purchasing.
a white button down - great for many occasions and handy for any smart events you need to attend.
(denim/linen) shorts/skirt - always good to have something for the warmer weather in your wardrobe!
little black dress - obviously the key piece if you’re going to a party!
structured bag - great for everyday use, chuck everything you need in their. Just a go-to bag.
mini bag - I’m a massive fan of mini bags! They’re great when you don’t need to take a lot of things out and about but still want to have space for a purse/your phone/etc.
sneakers - super fashionable at the moment and always comfortable. Many pairs work well even with smart casual outfits so I think they’re a great item.
boots - totally necessary for winter! The style is kind of up to you - I like slightly heeled, pointed, black boots mainly since it helps to make my legs look a little bit longer!
heels - generally a good idea to have just one pair of heels in your wardrobe for any special occasion.
accessories - it is always useful to have a belt, some earrings, a couple of rings and a necklace or two which you can add to an outfit!
Hope this helps! Good luck clearing out your wardrobe! x
Spent most of the day doing chores and cleaning up like washing my clothes and blankets, washing my makeup brushes, cleaning up my room and closet. Also got to revise my notes for History and a 16 fay streak on Duolingo~ got a lot of stuff done today.
Took some time tonight to clean and organize my “witch closet.” I’m getting a new bookshelf soon to house my expanding library 😬
Pictured is my wall cabinet that I dedicate to my essential oils, my infused oils, salts, homemade incense, powders etc. Then my main witch cabinet with spice jars, candles, incense, ritual tools, containers (GALORE), and other misc items. After is my gem chest where I keep my gems, stones, crystals, jewelry, and charm making supplies.
And of course a small selection of my temporarily homeless books 😂
Self care. I didn’t even know the term before kids.
I am going to do something for myself at least once a week. Work out, file my nails, clean out my own closet, meet a friend for coffee (with out all four kids, I’ll count it with a few of them though). I know it sounds silly but putting myself last/not in the list takes a toll me on. My self esteem is pretty low and it makes it hard to be a good partner.
Maybe I’ll even post my weekly “thing” here to stay accountable.
God I intended to go to bed like 2 hours ago, but I got sidetracked trying to figure out what the fuck I actually want to make this year. I thought I had it all planned out but…. let me just tell you, I do not. Last year was terrible and I got crazy burnt out, then went back to school, then got hit by a car, then broke up with my boyfriend, so like… I have Been Through Some Shit and all my old plans are basically out the window for one reason or another.
Anyhow. I am definitely going to make FEWER costumes this year, mostly because I really want the ones I do make to count. I think my ideal target is four really well made things and one ridiculous thing if I have the time/motivation. What those things will be is still a big goddamn mystery.
My very first post … a snapshot of my high heels closet. 3m long shot even if it doesn’t seem that long on the picture.
New pairs have been added since then to reach a total of 30 pairs of high heels pumps and more or less 20-25 knee-high and thigh high boots.
Hard to wear them all and I even sometimes forget about some or just don’t wear them anymore. One of my 2017 resolution is to clean my closet and potentially sell a few before buying new ones 😂. I guess high heels fashion is my addiction 😍👠

I’m cleaning out my closet and thought I would share some Tips™ with y'all. hope this is a helpful reminder that anyone, regardless of socioeconomic status and taste, can have and benefit from a capsule wardrobe!
I'm very sorry if this sounds stupid but I was reading your answers to some anons and I don't get one thing, do you think that Harry *wants* to stunt/beard himself and be perceived as straight? Then so does Louis with Danielle? I don't want to sound rude I'm just wondering because you were talking about the co and how you think they want to come out, but then you answered in a way about Harry stunting with girls that confused me, I don't understand what your opinion is :/ can you explain?
Hi! I want you to know I tried answering this a week ago and xkit mobile ate it. Sorry anon! Also, you aren’t stupid; there’s nothing wrong with asking for clarification if you’re genuinely confused.
So, here’s the thing: I don’t think either of them ~want to be doing what they’ve been doing for several years now. It’s exhausting and emotionally wearing. But life is full of things we have to do that we don’t want to do, but do anyway. And I would like to point out that neither Louis nor Harry have put much effort into making things look convincing on their end. (E.g. Louis’s terrible hetero handholding, Harry holding hands with Jeff’s girlfriend of all people.)
But they have to do some of this, whether because they’re explicitly required to from an external force or because circumstances don’t allow for another alternative (they are in the closet, after all). I tend to think one of the (many) reasons Harry has been so under the radar this year is that it severely limits any need to do any stunting for him. (That laughable aforementioned handhold occurred at his highest profile appearance last year, notably.)
If Harry were 1) interested in the limelight 2) interested in staying in the closet longer than he absolutely has to, we would have seen a very different 2016. He would have been independently rebranding, done the Another Man project somewhere like GQ, and he probably would have had a bearding relationship with someone high-profile, covering a ‘serious’ demographic, probably an actor – someone like Dakota Fanning or Mia Wasikowska, someone with an established career and name recognition (not another of Victoria’s Secret models, most of whom the public doesn’t know).
But we didn’t get any of that. So no, I don’t think Harry is keen to keep up the current arrangement.
Cleaning out my closet has led me to realize I have a Tailored Sportsman problem. Tan, Brownstone, Dark Sage, Topaz, Charcoal, Black and Blue, Black and Tan, Boysenberry and Rust… this isn’t even all of them.
