Shop My Closet

I've sat on this idea for a long time now... and FINALLY decided I needed to just do it. I finally went through my closet... to purge. I found tons of great things, and figured I'd go ahead and try my hand at a "Shop My Closet" sale on Instagram. There are a lot of items that are tough to part with... and I'm hoping that they'll go to a fantastic home.

I'm at this weird place in life right now... postpartum from Marley, and pregnant with a new baby. I'm growing a lot faster this time around, than I did with Marley... showing a lot sooner, not as comfortable in certain attire... and lets face it, there are just some pieces in my closet that I will NEVER fit into again (even though I had high hopes of getting there.) I'm trying to simplify my wardrobe... throughout this pregnancy, I want to focus on clean and simple... not going to purchase many pieces... because as soon as this pregnancy is over... I have a complete wardrobe overhaul in mind. I promise, I won't be living in yoga pants... but the idea is that I want to have a more meaningful wardrobe-

- Can I get away with these jeans/dress if I'm bending over and picking up kids all day long, or am I going to be flashing my goods at some one?

- Is it okay if my child spits up all over this, or will I be furious over a ruined piece of clothing?

- Do I feel comfortable?

- Can this piece of clothing be considered an "essential"... or a timeless piece that won't go out of style?

etc. I think you get the picture. I was really inspired by what the sweet Moriah wrote in this post... she's following Jessi's "The Capsule Project", which in a nutshell is about simplifying your wardrobe, cutting down the excess and finding the pieces that work. She was inspired by the ebook, The No Brainer Wardrobe, which I definitely want to read sometime before this next baby pops out.

The first place I could start this whole project/process... was with purging and planning... so here it is... coming at you this Friday night, starting 7 CST, I'll start posting some of my sweet pieces on my "shop my closet" Instagram account, that you can follow, here. Hope to see many of you there... pieces that aren't sold, will be posted on my facebook page, 24 hours later... for those that aren't Instagram users. There will be around 25 dresses/tops and 4-5 scarves. Standard shipping rate will be $4.00 for US residents, higher for International...for most items. If you purchase more than one piece, I will come up with a stellar shipping rate for you. All you'll need is a paypal address to claim, and invoices need to be paid within 24 hours of receiving. I'll ship out all the purchases, next week sometime.

And this is how I keep my little ones occupied while photographing and organizing this sale...

Pin It!
