100+ What?

I seem to use a lot of the word ‘vintage’ in this. That, and pointing out that I do sometimes use more money on shoes than I should, are in here just to hide the fact that most of my clothing is worthless, old, and never been in fashion.

There’s also too much ‘blah blah blah- waist line -blah blah bah’ to be translated, so I’ll just roughly sum it up for you non-Finns.

I really don’t do much shopping, ‘cos 1) I’m poor and buying clothes is waste of money, 2) I’m really picky, and shopping is therefore boring, 3) I’m messy, and hate piles of clothes and doing loundry.  I give clothes away as soon as I find them unfitting or unflattering. Here’s some clothes I’m getting rid of at the moment, and some I shall re-evaluate next summer. (P.S. I like shoes.)

So it’s not hard for me to give away clothes, but how would my most minimalistic wardrobe look like? CASUAL UNIFORM (that i have worn since I was a teenager.) : A pair of basic jeans, simple top, a pair of Dr. Martens. (Not black ones tough.) A knit and a pair of wool socks. FOR WORKING (with people), MEETINGS, PARTIES, ETC: All the black clothes. I have jackets like that more than I really need. SUMMER: I’m never going to become the summer-fashionista, I every spring think I will. All I really use are these few pieces.

Then there are some rarely used clothing, such as THE UGLY, BUT MULTI-FUNCTIONAL: Lots of thin wool-knits here. For camping, traveling, Haapsalu, forest, etc. PARTIES: Few good dresses. At least one for summer and one for winter.

And then some random stuff, like my orange biker jacket I bought when I was 19, and still wear and love, underwear (some of them in fine condition), seasonal accessories, and some bags.

This is basically what I feel like I could easily survive with. Actually I don’t own MUCH more clothing anyways. My wardrobe is quite narrow and functional, and I like it that way. By now I know what I like and what suits me, and I don’t do much mistakes when shopping anymore.
