Do you also like to watch how other people organize their wardrobes? Me too. Oh, and "What's in my purse posts". Love those as well. Although I do not quite understand why. Oh well, maybe because I am your number one procrastination queen and thus cannot help myself. Yes, that's it probably.
Oh well, in order to give back a bit I decided to also share the contents of my wardrobe now that I have my capsule wardrobe planned out and going. At first, it looks like a huge thing, right? The boyfriend let out a little gasp when it was assembled. It is a Pax wardrobe from IKEA that I purchased in 2007. I chose two units with the size 50x58x236cm instead of one 100x58x236cm unit, just because I knew back then that I would have to move again and two smaller units fit new apartments more easily than one big one. You know, you can split them up, one goes here, the other one goes some place else... I also went with the highest option they had. German and Dutch apartments are tall enough for them, unless you move into one of those cute little cottages.... But let's face it, I could not possibly afford one of them.
So the wardrobe is placed in our office / dressing room. You can see my container for stationary and all things work and the printer to the left and my mister's chest of drawers to the right. Don't worry, he also has a closet to hang things, this is not all he is allowed for clothes ;) Enough of the rambling, let's take a look inside, shall we?
The black box to the left contains capsule wardrobe items that are currently not in use. Think summer tops and skirts, shorts and light jackets. On the right I keep some extra bedding and bedsheets for visitors.
So that is it. This is all the clothing that I own. The best thing about my decluttering frenzy from a few months ago? I can easily find things. There is plenty of space on the racks, shelves and in the drawers. No squishing things in, no deciding against an outfit because I am too terrified to get it out or cannot find it anymore. Bonus: my clothes are less wrinkly which means less ironing. So far, I really like this minimalism thing. A lot.
