I've been cleaning out my closet lately, by which I mean I spent 20 minutes putting items in a black garbage bag. The feeling is one of not only relief but being at peace. Every time I would clean my closet and rearrange it I would find myself reminiscing 2 hours later with nothing done. This time I pulled everything that I hadn't wanted to wear. In the last year I've aimed to buy only what I love. I want the feeling of meeting a special piece to exist when the clothing is sitting in my wardrobe. Even though there are good (and bad) memories and times in my life attached to each piece of clothing there is a time to let go. I think that things that you hold onto also leave the associated memories shadowing you around. Even though you can learn from the past it doesn't have to be around you. This also marks the 3 years anniversary of Paulina and my collaborations, I can't say how glad I am that we've continued on - she's only getting better and better.
