i'm really good on keeping my actual wardrobe edited, because i pretty much only ever wear:
1. scrubs/long-sleeved tissue tee at work
2. yoga pants/long-sleeve tissue tee at home
3. one of four black dresses (sleeveless, short-sleeved, 3/4-length, long-sleeved) or two sweater dresses for going out or traveling
4. jeans (three pairs) with boatneck 3/4-length shirt (three) for just normal stuff
i know, it's boring, but i'm not really into patterns, or ruffles, or dots, and all the colors i love look awful on me because i'm super pale. i don't really like shopping anyway. for me to buy something i have to imagine myself wanting to travel with it, since i always pack my favorite items, but they also have to be both comfortable, flattering, and versatile. that makes a pretty good measuring stick for whether or not i want to keep something in the closet.
my trouble definitely comes with the t-shirts though. i have tons and tons of them, and i never wear them. i don't think i ever even used to wear them that much, i just seem to have accumulated them over the years at shows or on vacation or wherever, and now i don't want to toss them. i keep trying to trick myself into thinking that i don't actually loathe sewing and that i'll make this quilt out of them: http://www.craftstylish.com/item/45413/ ... e/page/all
