Why it's impossible to cull your wardrobe without your colours

Cull your wardrobe with your colour swatch

Wardrobe cull

Lock down has made many of us very industrious. It’s given us time at home. Space to breathe and time to think about making some good changes. Those good changes can certainly be put to good use in the area of our wardrobe and what we’re wearing.

Lots of women are also finding themselves in a place where their budget is not as healthy as it once was. And also finding themselves home more often than not and needing less outfits than before.

We may be desirous not to waste so much money on throw away fashion, or save on the environment. How many thousands of dollars have you spent on fashion over the years?

It’s interesting how lock down has us thinking of what really matters. Having a wardrobe jammed packed with clothes we never wear is one of those things that just don’t matter.

Anyone up for doing things smarter? And saving some money as well on your wardrobe?

And having a good clean up? I have just cleaned every room in my house so my wardrobe is next. There will be things to give away and things to post on e-bay, so it will be recycle style and not land fill.  There’s a desire to buy much less than before.

This weeks’ blog is all about Culling, Saving, Organizing and thinking more about the outfits we already have and what we will be wearing in the future.

Shop your wardrobe first before you ever think of buying another thing.

As a colour consultant, the first thing I do when I cull a clients’ wardrobe is remove all the WRONG colours.

It’s a little difficult to remove the wrong colours when you don’t know your right colours.

Over the years I have met countless women who have had a misdiagnoses with their colours or have a swatch full of the wrong colours.
