We’re moving! Not too far though, just a few miles away. To enjoy the last evening at our current place, Mystery Man and I went up to the roof and watched the sunset. We’re super excited about our new place. For MM, he’ll have more space for his equipment, and for me, I’ll have more windows for direct sunlight. Our current apartment doesn’t get much sun which can be a little depressing at times. Having a lot of natural light where we live is super important to me, so I can’t wait to get settled into our new apartment!
As I was packing, I also went through and did a closet edit. I’m very heavy handed when it comes to condensing my wardrobe. Closet edits are not excuses for me to buy more clothes, but rather, are opportunities for me to appreciate the clothes that I already have and to find inspiration using existing pieces. Personally, I like to have a tightly edited closet with classics mixed with interesting designs.
Also, I’m not afraid of letting go quality items in hope that they’ll find better homes. Not only would I love to see my bags and shoes go to others who will enjoy them, it’s a great way for me to reinvest back into my collection. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now, but haven’t had time to take photos and write entries to put them up on eBay. Would you be interested in seeing the eBay listings? If so, I can update you in a future blog post. Most of my items (Christian Louboutin pumps, YSL sandals, YSL bags, Stella McCartney bag, and much more) are kept in very good to almost-new condition. I hope to have the listings up in a couple of weeks. As for the majority of the clothing pieces from the closet edits, I seek the help of local non-profits to find organizations that will deem them useful, especially focusing on youth programs.
Thank you so much for reading and talk to you soon!
