What to do with an old shoe? There are many many ways to get rid of the clothes, shoes and accessories you do not really get along with anymore. I mean the simplest way is to either throw or give it away, though under my roof throwing away only happens when something is torn or super worn. So what are the options exactly?
Of course there is eBay – or any other online selling site – but I never really got along with that. Too many emails, too many questions. “What is your breast size? Do you think I will fit in with a double D?” It is just not my thing.
What I usually tend to do is make a selection of what goes where. Most of it ends up being sold at the Closet Affair I try to organize bi-annually. I then take the rest of it, plus the Closet Affair leftovers to a secondhand store in Amsterdam. Everything they do not take in – they are pretty selective you know – goes directly to one of those containers. All items that do not get sold after three months of hanging in the secondhand store patiently waiting for a new owner are brought to a container as well.
Now I know there is rumors that those clothes are going anywhere but to the people that need them the most and I really wish I could have control over that, but I do not see how at this point. I am super curious, what do you do with your old stuff?

Back from one day of blog silence in that pinstriped Asos suit I talked about earlier this week. Here worn with a Zara t-shirt and my utterly painful leopard friends from Alexander Wang.
