Closet full of clothes but nothing to wear? You’re not alone. Most people only wear 20% of their wardrobe . That’s a lot of real estate dedicated to clothes that never get worn. If every time you open your closet you see clothes that you regret having purchased (why did I spend so much money on this?), or that make you feel bad about your body (why don’t I fit in this anymore?), your clothes are not serving you and it’s time to let them go.

Years ago I justified the purchase of a fairly expensive Marc Jacobs lbd by telling myself, “I can wear it forever! It’s a classic! It will never go out of style!” While those statements may have been true, after years of wearing it, I got bored with it. That perfect little black dress was hanging in my closet in excellent condition, but I didn’t want to wear it anymore.
