Pre-Chinese New Year Wardrobe

Friday, 8 February 2013
Two more days until Chinese New Year, which means the tradition of cleaning is upon us! I do follow some traditions, cleaning is now reflex for me. Although they say it's to 'clean away all the bad luck to welcome the New Year', I do it because I've gotten so use to it and feel dirty if I don't!

Another good to come out of this is I've found loads of clothes that I didn't know existed. Plus, this time, I've set a rule of throw out anything that I haven't worn in the past year, no ifs and buts! I'm always the culprit for saying 'I might wear this someday' or 'what if I need that'.
Well, I've finally put my foot down. I, like most of us ladies, use to only wear about 10% of my wardrobe, now have a wardrobe full of clothing I'd actually wear.

Some items will be given to family members, others to friends and the majority to charity (about 10kg)! After years of keeping those 'ifs and buts' items, they all finally have a home and my wardrobe is no longer an eye sore.

Before...
...clothes slipping off, impossible to add anything else on rails, clothes stuffed to the top!

After...
...non-slip hangers save the day, gaps on the rail, and I can actually see the back of my wardrobe!
Non-slip velvet hangers: Primark £4 per pack of 10
Please excuse the random black hanger, I thought I bought enough hangers but it turns out I need more than 60. I will get more. My plan of bright pink hangers for tops and dresses, lilac for skirts, and light pink for shorts did NOT work out damn it!

We just LOVE those non-slip hangers! They are the best and they don't hurt your clothing at all. Mendi has been working in her closet and now I need to start.
