I'm gonna need more hangers.

I want a wardrobe that consists solely of dearly loved items that give me joy to wear. Objects that I always look forward to wearing – I’m quite sure such a wardrobe is utterly attainable.

-Dead Fleurettes

while i don’t follow her manifesto of stark and disciplined minimalism, i was completely taken with what she said here. its so simple but something i never considered to the fullest: its not just about having pretty things, many things, things things, but things that are precious to me. that should be sufficient and enduring. if i would just avoid acquiring unnecessary things, i could have more of the kinds of pieces i’ve always wanted. with this goal in mind, eliminating everything in between has become easier. it took a lot of tumblr viewing, a lot of closet photos to realize it makes me kind of nauseous to see those vast walk in closets, shoe racks piled high with barely worn louboutins. i don’t want that anymore. i’d love to have a humble collection of my favorites and my go-tos, as pictured above, and that’s what i’m going to continue to go for.

side note: owning less does pose an interesting paradox however, as posed by The Guardian: it doesn’t absolve you of your material attachment. you’re still fixated on “stuff.” meh, i’m ok with that. i just want stuff that i actually like.

for more closet inspiration, you can check out my tumblr (same name, hehe), stylelikeu, and the selby, among countless others.
