OVERHAULING MY WARDROBE



In the last couple of months - no actually in the last year and a half - I had felt so desperate about my style and wardrobe in general. I just hadn't felt comfortable in my clothes and my 'style' was indescribable, it was a mix of French chic, cally, bohemian and grungy style. To be honest, it was horrible!

So the miracle wanted to help me and I came across the best book in the world; 'The Curated Closet'. It has helped me solving my problems.
But let me first explain what The Curated Closet is about! It's basically a guide to define your own style, buy only pieces that you like 100% and throw away anything that doesn't fit into your wardrobe anymore.




As well-behaved I am I did every single step. And it was a challenge!
First it was all about defining your personal style. So I had to think about what I like, what suits me best and get inspired by creating my own moodboard. I made mine on Pinterest because I think it's very easy to pin something and you have the inspiration always with you on your phone. If you want to look through my moodboard then click here.
After this I answered questions from the book to define my style a little better. Here are some of them:
What are the most important colours of this style?
What fabric do you like the most?
What's the best name for this style?
What does a typical outfit look like for this style?


The book also tells you not to buy clothes that don't really fit to your style. So that you don't have a mix of everything in your wardrobe. This can be very hard when you go shopping escpecially when you are stressed. This is the reason why I prefer to shop online although I can't always do that because sometimes I have to try things on. So the author's advice is to write a 'shopping list' that conatins the overall look of your style, fabric, colours etc. This is kind of a filter that the clothes in store go through. You can skip trying on clothes that don't fulfil the 'conditions' on your list.
Now comes the last and biggest step: Overhauling your wardrobe.


I've thrown out many clothes in the past but not all at once! This time it's a bit different and it's actually the first time I've done it.
When you overhaul your wardrobe you basically throw out every single thing that doesn't fit to your new style and that you're probably not going to wear anymore. After you've thrown out everything your closet will be for sure pretty empy because your new style is after reading through the entire book (almost) completely different.


It was difficult but totally worth it! I say difficult because I had so many clothes and it was a lot of work going through the things and asking myself if I still need them and if they could fit to my new personal style. I am also one of those people that are connected to their things especially when it comes to fashion. But I had to change myself a bit because I had no joy with these pieces and there was no room for new ones.



However afterwards I felt so 'free'. I know it sounds ridiculous but I honestly felt like that! My closet was so empty and in the end I loved all my clothes that were left!

I would recommend 'The Curated Closet' to everyone that needs a little help with their existing wardrobe and a new and fresh style that fits their personality and lifestyle perfectly!

RETRO TEES AND PLEATED SKIRTS



I surprisingly didn't go shopping so I had to pick some 'older' clothing for this post. But I can tell you that it looks all the better!

I don't know how you feel about vintage/retro tees but I am obsessed with them at the moment. They are just so so versatile! Yes, I am talking about T-Shirts and a tees literally go with everything (except you wear on top of a ballgown...). But it is more than that. It gives your outfit the extra bit that otherwise lost. It makes your heartbeat go faster when you put an outfit including it together and you absolutely fell in love with it. Okay that was a bit...I am not going into this anymore...
Coming back on earth!
You can wear it with high waisted jeans, denim skirts, under dungarees, shorts and even more.
The T-Shirt that I chose to wear in this post is from Bershka and is totally comfortable!
So let's stop for here with the retro tees. Let us give the rest of the outfit a chance to be feautured in this post as well!


Are pleated metallic skirts still trendy? I hope so because I really like them and it would be sad if the trend is already over. I also bought it not very long ago. However I like pleated skirts! Whether they are in or out, especially when they are metallic! The one that I am wearing in this picture is pink-ish? Rose? Satin? I am not the best at colors to be honest.
Sometimes I feel like it is to festive to wear it for example in school but I love it! It is so comfortable and pretty! So the gorgeous skirt sadly only leaves my closet when I wear it in my free time.



Anyway, what a ramble!
The next thing I am going to show you are my black ballet flats from Zara. They just look adorable with the gold heels and the strings to tie around your ankles! They also go with almost every outfit and they give it a feminine and elegant touch!


Coming to accessories, I chose my beloved ring that I got last year at Disneyland Paris. I can't tell you how much I love it! I am also a ring kinda person, if that makes sense.
The accessorie has a little Mickey Mouse and star detail. And the pink stones are actually my birthstones which I find so cool!
By reading this I realised that this Ootd is kind of Disney themed because of the retro Mickey Mouse tee and the ring. But that's okay because I love Disney!
For the earrings I just decided to wear simple pearl ones from Primark.
I dind't want to take more jewelry because I think, the skirt is shimmery enough!


Before I'll finish, for the ones that wondered I just wanted to tell you that I am doing the haul probably the next time. I am really sorry but I just didn't feel like a haul where I only show a few pieces to you guys! So I will wait a bit and do a collective haul.
Nevertheless I hope you enjoyed the outfit as much as me!


Lots of love,
Victoria
