2 Declutter

“Clear your stuff. Clear your mind.”
― Eric M. Riddle, Stuffology 101
I finally decluttered my life and wardrobe. It took a dose of negativity to get my stuff together; piles of clothes I'd refused to let go of I finally did. It's like a breath of fresh air. When the negatives in my life get too heavy for me cleaning helps me think constructively. I tend to immerse myself in scrubbing out really irky areas I'd been dreading; this time I channelled the energy into purging my closet. After I had done that I also scratched my list, you know that long list we ladies all have? Lol! I'm starting afresh to make a new list. Can we help it?
Do you have a list or am I crazy? How do you expel negative energy?

2 Lavender Jeans: I Love You

Happiness is not getting what you want, it's appreciating what you have. Gratitude is the key to happiness---- Michael Josephson

If you are a regular reader of MSW, first, I love you, second, you know that I remix clothing items and these lavender denim will be no exception. One of the reasons I remix items is because rather than go on shopping sprees, as if I have the budget for it, hehehehe, I like to appreciate and consciously enjoy what I already have. I wear items until I tell myself "Ok, you've had this for long enough". 
As a result of that I carefully consider what I intend to purchase, though I have my moments. I consider colour, cut, style, versatility and trends. It being trendy means I have a short period of time to put it to great use, so I weigh that against classic pieces. Of course, I make a number of errors; it's a learning process, but at the end I intend to have a happy, well loved wardrobe smiling back at me.

3 Acid Wash

I believe you should live each day as if it is your last, which is why I did have any clean laundry, because, come on, who wants to wash clothes on the last day of their life?---- Anonymous
Hey, don't look at me, I have clean laundry!, but if you have done laundry for an entire household you certainly would appreciate the sentiment. I used to dread Saturday mornings! Lol! Speaking of 'wash' I love the acid wash of this denim skirt, paired it with what I call my generation tank, because of the graphics and my currently favourite sole.
