I’m not actually sure if a closet cleanse is better for you than going to the gym but I do know that it is the best feeling in the world. After you're finished you feel like you just mediated for 12 days straight. Seriously.
Okay okay let’s back up. WTF is a closet cleanse? That’s so nice of you to ask. Well, it’s basically when you stop being a hoarder and throw out (or donate if you care about like, other people) stuff you haven’t worn in the past year, you love but have never worn, that doesn't fit, and was expensive but you never use.
…OR you can have someone do it for you! Enter Betches’ fave stylist Jenny Greenstein and the founder of Your Soul Style. Think about the most effortlessly chic person you know. Got them? Now immediately forget about them and put Jenny in their place. She’s a stylist who gives a shit what you look like second to how you feel in what you’re wearing. She’s basically like Soulcyle for your wardrobe.
She did a closet cleanse for me, one of the founders of Betches, and I literally feel like another - just as cool but slightly chicer - person. First we did a consultation which included asking me what celeb’s style I like, how I want to feel in my clothes, and what my goals are. I had one answer to all these questions and it was Kourtney Kardashian. Second, we started cleansing.
The best part was that not only did she clear my closet of literally 5 full garbage bags of clothing and shoes and then organized it by category, color, and style, but she came up with so many different outfits ideas that I never would have thought of myself. And then she made a list of what I am missing… which takes us to the next, and probably even more exciting, step in the Soul Style journey… THE SHOPPING TRIP.
