Here’s what happened when I shopped my own closet

Few things in life give me greater joy than getting all dressed up. It was a couple of years ago that the hubby and I used one of our rare nights out to attend a black tie event for local bloggers.

I remember feeling hesitant about going because I thought it would require me having to go out and buy something new. I mean, black tie events are not our normal, so the pickins in my closet for formalwear were extremely thin.

Thank goodness that inside my own closet is exactly where I decided to start. Because waaaaay in the back is where I found this gem that I had long since forgotten about. And, it STILL fit!!

These days, shopping my own closet (and dresser drawers) is something I do quite often. And, each time, I rediscover some truly amazing finds!

In addition to rediscovering clothes that get “lost” in the shuffle of everyday life, I also use this exercise to clear out pieces that need to go. Clothes that look dated or worn, no longer fit my body or just don’t  represent who I am any longer, get thrown out, donated to charity, and in some cases, sold for profit.

If I have one piece of advice to offer before your next online purchase or trip to the mall, it’s this: Don’t underestimate the value of conducting your own closet audit. Like me, you might be beautifully surprised by what you find!
