If you follow me on Facebook (and if you don’t, get on it already would ya! HA HA), you may have seen my post the other day about the story that Jennifer Aniston is having a $60,000 drive in closet built in her new home.
But it got me thinking about why ANYONE even has that much stuff in the first place that they would need that kind of space to store it. Seriously. Unless she is a hoarder, I can not see why she needs that much space! Surely someone of her means could afford to buy whatever she wants, whenever she wants it, that she doesn’t need to hold on to EVERY. PIECE. OF. CLOTHING. she has ever acquired. Or does she?
Maybe it’s like those tabloid magazine stories: Stars, They’re Just Like Us!
You know the ones that show them “Using a Crosswalk!”, or “Grabbing their own coffee from Starbucks!”. One of my all time faves? “They reach for the top shelf!”
Hilarious – those always make me laugh!
But getting back to the point…maybe they are just like us! It’s all relative, right?
Am I really in any position to judge Aniston for having that much stuff? How many pieces of clothing do I have that I don’t really need or even wear anymore? What about you? Do you have a closet full of pieces that you’re holding on to?
Maybe you are scared to get rid of it because you may gain or lose the weight.
Maybe you paid alot of money for it, so it feels wasteful to get rid of it.
Or maybe you just like the feeling of having “more”…it makes you feel like you have lots of options.
Whatever it is, the truth is that having a smaller, more manageable wardrobe is the true key to style success.
A modest sized wardrobe of items you LOVE is worth waaay more than a closet full of stuff that is just “okay”.
This is something I am currently working on actually (both personally and professionally) and will be telling you about in the weeks to come. In the meantime though, think about your own wardrobe. Are there pieces you are holding onto for all the wrong reasons? Could they be taking up the space for more valuable pieces that will make you excited to get dressed?
Not to get all WOO WOO on you here, but everything has an energy and if you are holding onto things that don’t make you feel
good great, you’re not going to, well…feel that great! So, take some time this week and think about that. Bonus points if you actually are able to get rid of a few things!
And if you have any questions while trying to decide on whether or not to get rid of something or get stuck and want a second opinion, feel free to message me – I’ll be there for you (get it? Friends?!).
Yeah, I know…it’s only funny when you don’t have to explain it.
