Yesterday I spotted Christina‘s challenge and I thought this would be a fun idea (and a good excuse to clean my closet). So, the challenge is to count how much clothes you have! I must admit that I didn’t of course include everything (as I have 3 big IKEA bags with stuff to the flea market plus clothes scattered around in Finland and in the washingmachine etc) but I did count all the clothes I have at this very moment in my closet.
I thought that this would also be a good moment to show you some stuff from my collection of clothes. Well, first of all I just want to say that I have too much clothes. I try to get rid of stuff 1-2 times a year and I’m preparing myself for a day of selling at a flea market. My wardrobe consists of 5 “shelf-boxes” that never seem to close and some space where I hang some dresses or clothes that easily wrinkle.
So whats the outcome? Well, according to my approximate calculations:
~ 14 pair of pants
~ 12 shirts/skirts
~ 12 dresses
The sum of this party is 110, and it doesn’t include any outerwear or shoes. I think it’s a lot, but then again I don’t buy expensive clothes, most of my clothes are from H&M and Zara.
Okay, let’s look at some of my stuff! I have soo much clothes that I don’t use so I picked out some of my favorite pieces.
Here’s a part of my sneaker collection. These are my newest and most used sneakers, from the left Air Force 1 in black high tops and white low, Air Max 90, Janoskis and leopard and suede Vans.
This is the prettiest and I think the most expensive dress I own, I wore it on a Great Gatsby themed party. From H&M Studio Collection two winters ago.
One of my absolute favorite pieces in my wardrobe is this set from Cecilie Copenhagen, can’t wait until summer so that I can wear the shorts together with the shirt.
Two sweaters that I don’t use that often that I should. The navy to the left is from the same H&M Studio Collection as the dress and the gray is from H&M x Alexander Wang. I’m considering selling the gray one, if you are interested send me a message.
You guys have seen my light gray faux fur jacket quite a lot, but when the weather starts to warm up I will switch to this thinner model from H&M Trend. The suit jacket I havent yet used, but I love the small blue stones.
The leather jackets. I love my leather jackets. The one to the left, I bought two years ago in Barcelona and the one to the right I bought 4-5 years ago in Paris. Some of my best purchases!
This kaftan or kimono from Monki, I bought it during Christmas sales. It is such a fun print and reminds me of Rodebjers first kaftans.
As I then felt a bit inspired, I styled myself a little with some of my favorites. Got a bit carried away, but I’ll show you some of the outfits.
I now challenge you!
