I just threw out a lot of my clothes that I don't wear any more but I still I don't like how I have over half my closet still unworn every time I do laundry for the clothes that I have worn. Doesn't seem very efficient to me. I do laundry every one or two weeks, so how much clothes should I have in order to have everything get a fair share of wear before it gets washed. What would a typical wardrobe be like?

1-4 pairs of jeans. The number will differ depending on your lifestyle and your preferences. If you love jeans and wear them daily, you'll need four pairs. If you seldom wear jeans, limit yourself to one fabulous pair.
2 dresses. One for day and one for night.
3 coats. This won't hold true for warm weather locations, but it's a must if you live in a country that has four seasons.
3 handbags. This requirement cuts across all lifestyles and age groups.
4 "everyday" bras and 10 "everyday" undies. This excludes sports bras and special occasion underwear.
6 pairs of shoes. This excludes slippers, workout sneakers, wellington boots and gardening clogs.
I hope this helps.

Do you say "shit I need more pots and pans because after I cook I don't use all my plates but my pots are dirty... what a waste."

What kind of logic is this?

This is now a Stella Maxwell thread. She's a kiwi, not entirely sure how she books runways though, since she's only 5'8

one time fuuma posted this and i saved it because it's so good.


What I would do:

Acne slim black denim X2 ($300 or so)
14 uniqlo white tees + undies ($210)
RO black leather high collar $2500
2XAnn gauzy knits ($850)
Vass fuuma special $800
MMM white sneakers $350

When more cash would buy pricey long coat + blazers. I'm pretty sure I can do almost unlimited time with what I just listed

5'8"/175cm is not exceptionally short for a model....hell Kate Moss is like 5'7" She's cute. My list was like bare minimum though, just saying that in reality you don't need that much clothing. http://i55.tinypic.com/fbcglx.jpg

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
