How Clothes Hoarding Can Keep You from Missing The Party

Are you a clothes hoarder? 

Some may call it being a "fashion collector" which sounds much nicer.

I have to admit to being a clothes hoarder.  I buy clothes and don't wear it, keep it in my closet because you never know when you will need it.  Well my clothes hoarding ways payed off this past weekend. My cousin had party for her big 4-0 birthday, and of course I had nothing to wear. Sometimes I feel guilty saying "I have nothing to wear" when my closet and hamper are overflowing with clothes. My normal reaction would be to go buy something to new wear, because by now all my family knows I blog about fashion. Like my BF tells me "You are a style blogger, you have to represent!" No pressure right!!  So instead of going out and buying a new outfit, I shopped my closet instead. I knew there had to be something new or an outfit I had not worn.  I dug deep into my closet and scored! Found a new dress with tags still on it, which I had bought for another party last year. These are the times I say to myself, "see good thing you had that dress in your closet, ready for any occasion." My other excuse is I never pay full price and buy things on sale or clearance and get great deals on everything.  I know sounds like I am in denial, but that's my only vice...Shopping!

Having a basic little black dress (LBD) is a fashion essential

Finding this LBD dress in my closet, renewed my fashion spirit. I was able to come up with a decent outfit for the party.  As basic as this LBD is, I felt good in it and was able to add a few accessories to jazz it.  I am not the type to over do it with accessories and do prefer simple and minimal look. Since the dress has some faux leather details on the shoulders and collar, I skipped the necklace just wore simple earrings with a bracelet and ring.

Shop in your own closet, before you go shop at the mall

I also found a new pair of tights to complete my outfit. Sometimes being a clothes hoarder has its advantages, don't you agree?  Since the invitation stated to bring your "dancing shoes" I opted for a more sensible pair of flats instead of heels. My cousin likes to dance so I knew her party would not disappoint with 2 live bands.  Overall I was happy with my look and glad it didn't cost me any extra money.  Lesson learned, always shop your closet before I go out and buy a new outfit. I knew it was likely there was something new with tags hanging in my closet, ready for me to wear.  Now I have a little black dress to save me from any future outfit dilemmas. You can never go wrong with a LBD!

I'm not alone right? Is there other clothes hoarders out there. So let me hear it...Are you a hoarder? 
What's does your "collection" consist of?


  1. You have inspired me! I'm putting cleaning my closet at the top of my summer to do list. Can't wait to see what I find!

  2. Totally agree. Shopping in the closet saves a lot of money, especially because I tend to be an impulsive shopper. I've often bought an item that looked similar or was the same as an item already in my closet. Thanks for the reminder.
