I decided to challenge myself to take better care of my clothing and accessories. More often than I’d like to admit my room looks like the picture below. Totally not ok. I have spent my hard earned money on these beautiful garments I clothe myself in every single day, & they end up on the floor in a pile. Disgusting. I knew it was time to make a change, & I recruited a few items to help me out.
A steamer, lint roller, sweater shaver, & a garment rack were just the tools I needed for a fresh start.
My sweaters desperately needed a facelift. They were starting to pill & were undoubtably covered with the hair from our two cats & dog (as you can see^^^). Using the sweater shaver & lint roller, unveiled new & refreshed sweaters ready to get me through the chilly nights of spring.
I purchased this inexpensive garment rack to display items I’m particularly inspired by, outfits I’ve already prepared for events, or, in this case, travel outfit planning. There is something so satisfying about putting beauty on display, & this certainly does the trick. It’s a helpful reminder that these pieces are meant to be worn & treasured.
I haven’t finished yet, but my goal is to go through & steam every article of clothing so they are ready to wear at a moment’s notice. That means no more piles. No more being unable to wear something because it’s now wrinkled from sitting on the floor. & from now on, shoes go from the rack, to my feet, & then directly back to the rack! Why is this so hard?!
The last change I made was emptying out ALL of my purses. Now I know where all of my bobby pins have been hiding! No more just throwing random crap into my nice purses, & when I want to change purses, I must TAKE EVERYTHING OUT. No more losing a favorite lipstick only to find it in the purse I was wearing the week before.
Do you do these things too?
What kind of things do you do to show your clothes some extra love? xx
