I buy my clothes for both who I want to be and who I am today. I am constantly looking at ways to improve my style (as odd as it sounds), and so I try new things, although not necessarily fashion trends.
I don’t really have a specific style uniform in that I wear the EXACT same things over and over again, but I do tend to wear the same kinds of base items to build an outfit upon, although the actual item varies.
I go through these phases regularly where I am RUTHLESS in my closet and I just start chucking things into boxes to sell or donate. These are the rules for decluttering my closet that go through my mind as I do it.
