Over my lolita years my style has developed and changed through every substyle imaginable, as I matured and experimented trying to find my perfect little pocket in the fashion. So naturally I collected so many things from different brands in different colours, cuts and styles and I loved them all at the time of purchase but slowly they began to float towards the back of my wardrobe.
So, sometimes it's really hard to give up things that you love because you realise that you don't love them as much as you did - you want to keep them for the memories and the sake of having them because you're like yeahhhh I'll wear that again soon. But you never do. It just sits there looking pretty. And somebody sits there going "man, I wish I had that because I can't find it anywhere".
This is when you have to do what you thought you would never do - sell it.
And afterwards you surprisingly feel much better. It gives you an opportunity to help another person out, as well as giving yourself and opportunity to buy something new that you will actually wear and cherish instead of pushing it to the back of your wardrobe.
The thing that kept pushing me to sell more was the feeling of closure and cohesiveness when I looked into my closet, and a want to create my own little perfect wardrobe where all the pieces matched and worked with each other. In reality, I really haven't stopped hoarding; I'm hoarding different things but it's for better reasons.
As I say in the video "Quality is better than quantity, but if you have a quantity of quality that's okay too" !!
