In the spirit of decluttering, I'm going to attempt the French Wardrobe technique. I fell down the Reddit hole the other day to arrive at this fantastic topic; building a wardrobe of solid basics and adding five key pieces per season.
I have the unhealthiest relationship with decluttering; once I start pruning things away, I get recklessly ruthless and give myself a huge pat on the back for having capsulize-d my collection. Unfortunately, the hoarding craving returns close to immediately, and I find myself purchasing items unnecessarily just to hold on to them for long enough that I feel comfortable getting rid of them. And so on. It's a problem.
A no-buy is supremely unrealistic for me -- I'm going to buy stuff. The first step is admitting you have a problem. With this method, I'll give myself the opportunity to purchase thoughtfully and selectively.
My first purchase of the season? This bright fuschia clutch from Zara. I love the metal corner detail.
