- I would decide to minimize, and end up paring my wardrobe down to my essentials, getting rid of non-essentials and statement pieces.
- then, in a fit of wardrobe boredom, I would analyse my wardrobe again, see all the duplicates in my essentials, dedupe, buy non-essentials and statements ... And the cycle starts again.

I do the same thing. I've finally started getting things under control and have identified statement pieces I can wear and still feel like "me". So far, I've identified shoes, handbags, earrings, and coats as wearable statement pieces, for me. The rest hit the donate pile and I won't even miss them. I did hang on to my scarves, though. I've been seeing some nice scarfing on here and I'm thinking of giving it a shot.
