When I moved to Tokyo, I took out clothes, bags and accessories from my above average sized wardrobe and attempted to bring most of the things with me.
I’m living in a studio now, having trouble storing everything and ended up not using most of the things. I thought about how I often took space for granted at home. Although I did some curation a few years ago (successfully changing my ideology when it comes to style and shopping), I still have so many things. It’s high time that I review it again, that I would be ready to move in to the new place when we get the key.
So here’s the start of another round of curation, with some principles to stick to:
- Stay true to my own style and away from trends;
- Cover the basic things the wardrobe needs;
- Adding versatile things that will add value;
- Carefully shop for killer pieces every now and then;
- Keeping the things that I still love; and
- Getting rid of those that I no longer do.
Finally, a self-reminder: A curated wardrobe is more effective than one that’s filled with lots of things.
