The DH Closet Challenge Part II-Wardrobe Refinement (Week 4)

November 1, 2015

The boutique after 1 month.

DH Closet Challenge Part II-Wardrobe Refinement boutique after 1 month.

I’ve just completed week 4 of The DH Closet Challenge Part II-Wardrobe Refinement.  As I stated during the Week 3 check-in, for Week 4 my goal was to NOT add anything to my working closet.  And I am happy to report, that I did not.  Yay, progress!

I still have 49 items after Week 4 and here’s the list:

  • 2 Vest (gear) (no change)
  • 1 Pullover Fleece (gear) (no change)
  • 2 Blazers (no change)
  • 10 Knits (no change)
  • 5 T-Shirts (no change)
  • 2 LS T’s (no change)
  • 7 Jeans (one was used as gear) (no change)
  • 1 Trousers (Business Capsule; no change)
  • 1 Button down shirt (no change)
  • 1 Blouse (Business Capsule; no change)
  • 2 Scarves (no change)
  • 4 Tanks (no change)
  • 4 Thermals (no change)
  • 1 Cardigan (no change)
  • 1 Hoodie (no change)
  • 2 Ponchos (no change)
  • 3 Pullovers/Sweaters (no change)

But here’s a tougher question, was I able to leave my wardrobe alone?

Umm, sort of?

I know, now what kind of answer is that?  You see, although I did not add or remove anything from my wardrobe during Week 4, that doesn’t mean that I was not THINKING about doing so.  Every time I walked into my closet, I looked at the right side.  This is the side dedicated to the boutique during the DH Closet Challenge.  I’ve just completed my first month of the The DH Closet Challenge Part II-Wardrobe Refinement, and the boutique still has 67 items in it.

Here’s what’s happened to the boutique during the first month:

In my next post I’m going to address why I kept looking at the boutique this past week.

Are you always thinking about your wardrobe? 



  1. I always enjoy your posts! I really like your thought process, and how you go through this, step by step. Am I always thinking about my wardrobe? Yes and no. Having a capsule wardrobe this fall helped a LOT with that. But… then, because getting dressed is easier, I stop thinking about my wardrobe, and stuff starts creeping in – either from the rest of my closet, which is okay, or buying a piece here and there – which is not quite okay. So it’s kind of a catch-22. But I feel like I’m making progress, and that there’s a learning curve I’m working through.

    1. Yes, it is so easy to get wardrobe creep. It doesn’t seem to matter if one’s wardrobe is sorted out or in disarray. Bravo on assembling a capsule wardrobe for fall that is working for you. That’s awesome! And thank you for reading and writing a review. The reviews really motivate me to keep posting/blogging.
