For the last 6 years I have been tracking my closet edits and additions. I do this per month, per cost and per type of item. As much as I hate numbers I am a sucker for statistics and love knowing an item's cost per wear is or how long it lasted in the closet.
This year I added 96 pieces to the closet, most of them dresses, 18 to be exact.
These are detailed above and I miraculously stayed within my budget of 2016 established here .
One thing I did not do, that was also a 2016 closet goal was get rid of at least 200 items,
I only got rid of 134 - most of them being tops (40 of them) as you can see below.
As for shopping habits, this year I thrifted more, invested in higher quality handbags and got serious with my shoe edits (22 of them gone!)
In regards to closet goals for 2017, let's just say that I want to get rid of at least 200 items, stay within a 1,500.00 USD budget and most important make another attempt at a shopping ban.
My first attempt was back in 2010, which lasted 6 months (here is when it ended).
For the 2017 shopping ban I'll be holding hands with Lydia and we're going for three months, so it should be an interesting journey. Let me know if you'd like to join ;)
