I did a quick wardrobe count of what I own and this is what I came up with:
I did not include my jewellery, underwear, or my lounge/home clothes like sweatpants and ratty t-shirts or tank tops that I can never wear outside, because… I can’t wear them outside of the home.
This is just clothing I can wear outside to work, or what have you.

133 items of clothing
21 pairs of footwear
Total: 204 wardrobe items
I am obviously very heavy in the tops and dresses department.
Let’s face it, the fact that I can go a month and a week wearing a different dress each day says something, no?
I also really like long-sleeved shirts (which include button-ups by the way). There’s something about a crisp white silk shirt that tugs at my heart strings.
My scarves are also a pretty hefty collection but that was to be expected, as I consider them a staple accessory.
I could probably cut down on my total number of items to 150 or even 100, but I don’t really have the energy or the willpower to. I think over time, I will be weeding out items I no longer wear and doing it like that.
I think I’m going to start reinforcing the one-in-one-out rule. If something enters my wardrobe, something has to leave.
My plan is that going forward, I am going to start culling down my wardrobe pieces. I obviously don’t wear all of them but I need to do this over a year so I know what I don’t wear for ANY season, or I wear only in certain seasons (e.g. sweaters in autumn and winter).
I already started getting rid of things and we’ll see how low I can go.
One thing’s for sure though, I do not need any more clothes.
I DO NOT NEED ANY MORE CLOTHES.
I only need to refer back to this post to confirm this.
