Remember I wrote last week, how I sometimes wish I could throw all clothes that I own out and start from scratch with just a few pieces I already own? Well, I did it! A bit less drastically than I stated in that post last week, but I literally threw everything out and started hanging back the items I wanted to keep. There is four boxes of clothing, shoes and accessories waiting for a new owner. Whether that is my mom, one of my friends, somebody that really needs it more than I do, or…you?


Leave yours

  1. Are you keeping your black H&M trend jumper in angora? If not, I’m really interested to buy it!!!
    Actually, I’m doing exactly the same thing right now, trying to throw a maximum of clothes.

    1. @Caroline: Yes, I am sorry! It’s one of my favorites ;)

      1. Oki. I have the same one in orange but I missed the beige and the black one! I hope I will find one like that this Fall/Winter

  2. Anyone would be lucky to own your closet!
    you have such great taste in clothing!

  3. that´s great! everyone need to do that from time to time…when I add stuff to my closet I always do a search for something that must de recycled! ;) xo, Alma

  4. Cool idea! I wouldn’t be able to do it though…

  5. Good work!! I’m actually planning a wardrobe edit this weekend, weather I actually let anything go remains to be seen!!


  6. Dat heb ik vandeweek ook al gedaan, ben heel benieuwd wat je hebt weggedaan en wat je hebt gehouden ;)

  7. Hi Sabrina!
    Only 10 Basic are a interesting challenge because i think we all own more than we need. And im sure we just wear 20% of our clothes in a random loop.

    I stumbled upon your blog once as i was searching for the 5 piece french method. Maybe you can please make a challenge like wear only 10 piece for one week? :) Isnt this the gold standard of a good personal style?To not buy everything form the complete H&M season and wear everything once and then get rid of it?

    And… how do you sort your closet? Color or shape or more like summer and winter clothes? I really like your wardrobe and style. You have good basics.

    Thank you for reading my blah blah ;)
    xx Kat

    1. @kat: Thank you for your brilliant idea, I might do this actually! Xx

  8. Wat hangt het allemaal mooi zeg! Ben benieuwd wat je gaat verkopen aan de bloggers ;)

  9. Seems to be a time for clearing out…
    You are a great inspiration :)

  10. Aww could you do an online shop this time instead of a Closet Affair?! I’m not in Amsterdam (yet!) but I’d love to see what your closet has to offer – you have some of the best style out there and your pieces are so versatile.

  11. congratulations!!!! xxxx

  12. you are so brave ..congratulations… I have been in Europe for a total of 7years now Im going back home to Zambia and its a serious wake up call for me to pack up and cargo what clothes I really need…

    1. @Shazz4life: Wow, that must be hard! But indeed, also liberating…

  13. It’s so liberating to edit one’s closet, isn’t it?! I did it again recently and I am not going to buy stuff anymore if it’s not perfect! I only wear the favourites in my closet anyway and I have a classic style, no need for trendy items. Saves money too, even if you buy more expensive new stuff.

  14. I have so much trouble clearing out my closet. I end up finding things I haven’t worn recently and want to wear again. I think I need a bigger closet!

  15. Will you show us your newly organized closet? :)

    1. @Ren: I will definitely! This is part of it already though ;)

      1. Can’t wait!

  16. please tell me the leopard Alexander wang shoes are in there

    1. @jenaly: They’re still in my closet ;)

  17. what a huge courage to clean your closet! I still dont have this courage… There are lots of clothes, shoes which I dont use anymore

  18. Isn’t it incredibly liberating?!?!?! I love that feeling! It really helps you appreciate the pieces that you have and love!

  19. OMG, me, me, me!!! Im the new owner!!!

    1. @Thea: Haha ;)

  20. Hey Sabrina, lovely idea.
    But are you planning to sell somehow your old clothes? I think we are many interested waiting for that. Will you create a new sale blog or organise a new closet affair?

    1. @Giota: You can find some of it here: and there might be another closet affair soon!

  21. Really great items you’ve put away. I saw today a t-shirt that looked exactly ilk the dark red sweater!

  23. I am in the process of doing this as well! Such a good feeling, sorta…


  24. Amazing stuff! I´ll have a look :)


  25. I want to do exactly the same!

  26. Wow! All those people who said they have done the same thing as you did; I like that!. I wish I could do that too! I am a fashion student and this month I realize my style is actually very boring and save. So a new start for me, with a new style and new clothes. And within a year, I will be doing the same things as you are haha! (I hope..)

  27. Joepie!!! Ik heb je zara boots!! Plaats je nog dingen online? Ik ben volop online sale shopping aan het doen en zou liefst van al in u kast shoppen!!!



    1. @Stephanie: Ze zijn al met de post mee! Dankjewel! Er komen nog meer dingen op hoor, houd het in de gaten ;)

  28. This is great! Keep on cleaning out ;)
