Many factors before I decided to try this:
1. Need to change my wardrobe because I lost a total of 5-6kg (clothes do not fit anymore)
2. Moving to Hong Kong made me realised I don’t wear most of my clothes anymore
(For example, I stopped wearing short skirts after 30)
3. I need to have 4 season clothing (I miss 365 days of sunny Singapore)
4. Hope to have few but good quality clothes (Less fast fashion clothes)
5. Recent craze how french girls are so elegant and trendy with the basics
Below are the items I currently have but will try to reduce them. Hopefully, to have good quality pieces instead of quantity.

Still in the midst of clearing up items. While listing down the items, I realised most of my clothes are corporate wear. Hahaha… Which housewife would wear corporate pencil skirt for grocery shopping?!
Anyway, my new trusty wardrobe from IKEA and only half of it is mine.
Hopefully I can complete my packing soon. I guess I need more discipline in terms of deciding which item to discard or donate. I have this habit of keeping clothes, thinking I would wear it again when I never.
I also realised I need to be more responsible in my choices.
Hence, I have not buy any clothes in Hong Kong. I will keep track of the list and reduce the quantity.
