Happy Friday! My last two ‘Things a Stylist Would Remove From Your Closet’ were really popular so I thought we would share another closet clean out! Hopefully this inspires you to dig into your closet and also just puts a smile on your face and entertains you for a few minutes!
Send Linda some love for sharing her closet! Let me know in the comments below if you have cleaned out your closet during this time?!
Welcome back to secrets of a stylist. For those of you who don't know me, my name is Kim. I'm a fashion stylist. For those of you who do, welcome back. For those of you who don't know me, I am actually a stylist. I have been for years. I've done red carpet styling. I've also done hundreds and thousands and millions of closets, which is why I'm doing a series on closets cause I feel like you guys really liked them.

Hey guys, this is my girlfriend Linda. Linda is a really good friend of mine and we actually look alike. I think it's cause we're both like Scandinavian. You can let us know in the comments down below if we look like. We went to fashion week and everywhere we went, every red carpet, they were like, are you guys sisters? Like, no. And we both like to wear a lot of leopard, and camo, and camo, cheetah cheetah. Hmm. I know that says a lot about us.
Anyway, so for today's video, we're going to go through Linda's closet. However, she is actually one of those rare people, and I want to know how many of you out there there are. But she wears almost all of these pieces. Great. She comes through her closet on a regular basis and she actually wears most of the pieces.
I do on a daily basis. I'm like, what can I wear today that I haven't worn for a long time? And so I'm very intentional about getting dressed in the morning, which is good, I think. Because it means that the money that you've spent on the items, you were like intentionally thinking about using each one. So then there's really a nice thing to do, like, because there's a lot of waste that goes into clothing.
And by doing that, you're really putting the time in. And as she's adventurous, she's willing to try new things. Like grab that shirt, show them though. So Linda bought this without trying it on and actually she brought into fashion boots and wore like what pair of leather leggings. Leather leggings and silver boots.
We're not going to go through these pieces because we actually went through them yesterday and she wears everything, which is really cute, but we are going to go through her drawers and I feel like there might be some sweatshirts in that formation are really good smushed. Okay, let's go.
So Linda has drawers full, a drawer full of sweatshirts. But I actually like this because they are sweatshirts. So they actually can be thrown in here and you can just like, you know, meat meat. Okay. But let's go through them. Have you come through these? No cause I wear all of them. I do. I throw them on when I go to the gym in the morning, how are we going to show a video we'll clear out your closet. You got nothing to get rid of. I don't know. Okay. This one, I just wore that like two days ago. Are we going to fold these up too? Yes. Okay. Well, why don't we just take them all out? This is what I just throw it on the floor. Okay. There has to be like at least one thing per drawer you get rid of.
Okay. This one. Burden. We can get rid of it. Oh yeah. See, you're so good. Okay. That one. Get rid of this one. Great people. Great people. I love the color. You wear it? I, we can get rid of it.
Okay. And why? Why? Cause you don't choose it often, right? I don't choose it. I used to wear it a lot with these pants because it goes. Yeah. Okay, so those are reasons why I have all this stuff. I'm sure it all work together. Where's her stuff? I'm not going to say she doesn't. Okay. This, this camo sweatshirt? Yes. I just wore that last week. Okay. We like camo. We like camo in this closet. So we'll put that over in the black pile. Maybe we'll categorize them.
This one? I do love that because the sleeves, like look at the rushing on the sleeves. Oh yeah these things are cool. I can't remember the last time I wore it. It was like in the last two months. Oh. But I feel like it would look better on you. Yeah, I feel like it was, yes. I'm going to it in my triumph pile. Okay. So my triumph pile is over there. Okay.
This one feels really new, like it feels like you don't wear it. But you told me that you did. No I have worn it. But I probably haven't worn it as much as I should now that this is back in style. I haven't had it that long. Maybe a couple of years? It's so interesting to me when people say like, it's new, and then I'll be like, is it like a month or two old? Linda keeps things for like 10 20 plus years. So two or three years is very new. So which is good. Like you're good for the environment. Okay, so we're going to keep this? Are you going to choose this? I think so, yeah. Okay. I'm going to wear that tomorrow. Should we make you put it on? Okay. And where? That was my white leggings. Okay, so then I, and I know you will, so we'll put it here.
Okay. It still has a tag on it. Oh my gosh. I forgot about this. Look at these sleeves. This is why I bought it. This is H&M. You should have worn this on Halloween. Oh my gosh. Okay. I'm wearing that tomorrow. Not that I'll wear that. I want to see pictures of you. But look at these . How amazing is this? What your pictures? Okay. You have an orange sweatshirt, so you maybe don't need two. That can go. Okay.
I feel like this one might be a bit ratty. Yep. Go. I wore that on Friday. When did you arrive late denim Jean? This is Ann. I like the messaging. Nope. Cause like it was one of those days where I was like, Nope. And yeah, that I wore just to the gym everyday. Yeah. That's great. Okay. Yeah. Well look at that. We cleaned that up. We got rid of what?
Next drawer. Let's do t-shirts. Oh, geez. Yeah. Yeah. She says that that means that. So this one, I feel like you need to be kind of ruthless. Anything that's ratty gone. You gone. Yeah. Thanks, Gone. Yeah, I could tell by the way that one fold is gone. Gone. Ooh, we're doing this. This is going well. Gone. Pumped. I love it. I want people to get rid of stuff.
Oh, I like that. Why are you not seeing that? I should give that to my daughter. You should. Just put it in a separate pile. I just set it right here. Okay. Whenever you guys watch this video, it could be in two, three years. It might not be felt for you. But when we're filming, it's fall for us. I wish I was 19. Gone.
You went through like a baseball tee state. I feel like you're not in it anymore. Wow. That can go too. Like how many baseball tees? You have like you were in faith. I was in a total faith in a funk on the baseball team. Gone. God baseball tee. Classic white. Keep that one. Never been worn though. No, it has. Yup. Okay. That one's cute. I like that. I was wearing that yesterday when you came into my closet.
Huh? But it's really threadbare. Okay, so what should we do? We should throw it away. It should. Yeah. That can go. It's not bad, but it's a bit crunchy. Yeah. I feel like you could do better or just make a different choice. That can go. Yeah. This one's crunchy too.
Okay. Next drawer. Look at that. That's a huge pile. Oh, gees. Every time I opened this drawer, this whole entire summer, I'm like. Oh, I need to do something about this. That's why we're here. Originally I was like, okay, so this video is not really going to be cleaning your closet because it's pretty clean. But as we dig into the drawers, she's like, Oh yeah.
So it's kind of, it's an out of sight out of mind. So that's a tip for you guys. Just because it's hiding doesn't mean it's not there. Right. And energetically, this will actually free you up a little bit, even though you can't see it when you open it, it still reminds you that it's there. Yeah, and actually I have a sock drawer that looks like that. It's full to the brim.
The other thing that I also do when I go through my clothes is if it has a negative memories attached to it, I get rid of it. I just did that. Yeah. I got rid of like two or three pairs of shoes and I gave them to a girlfriend of mine that's a YouTuber and she was like, these are awesome. I'm like, they are. See ya energy. Yeah. Cause it doesn't affect her. It's not have something to do with her. Yeah.
Okay. Tee shirts. I haven't worn it. So it can go. I can tell by the way you look at it, cause it looks unfamiliar to you. If you know before I open it, let me know almost most of your comments saying for you. I don't think I've actually ever worn that t-shirt. Either. Go away. Nope. That can go away. Okay. No, I wear that. Guns and roses. Are you kidding? I feel like it needs a wash. Well, no, it needs lint rolling. That's just show them Linda's your cat. Her cat name is Rumor. As I was actually doing my intro, a hair floated. She's got this cat. It's white and fluffy. Yeah. Yeah. He's occasionally one hair flows by in the air. It's basic. Do you wear it? Yes I do. Perfect. I like Zara. I felt the quality is good. Yeah. I agree, actually. Yeah. Oh my gosh. Yeah. I'm keeping that. That's cute. I like that. No, I like it. Are you kidding me? I met three people. This is a good shirt. Keep that. Yeah. Didn't know I had that. I know.
Another tip, if it stained, don't put it back. And camel. Look at me. I just said gone to camel. Hey, look at that. Yeah, that's growing. I love it. I know. You're so good. I know. It does. Plus look at all the people that can have those shirts. Do you know what I mean if we take them to Valley village?
I'm very particular about my white tees. I mean, you guys are all going to ask me what my white tees. They are Anine Bing. Okay. There. Or and I actually wear the Nordstrom brand, Caslon. They are so good. These free people are good. You actually bought two of these. You have two, yeah. You have two the exact same shirt. You clearly liked it so much. You bought it again. This is embarrassing. Well, no, I mean everybody's the same. Do you want it? I'm going to keep it because you go through them in a matter of months. Cause the armpits. Yes. Just color and all that. I agree. Yeah. Wow. How many t-shirts do I have? Gone. Yep. I think these are old. You haven't gone through them in a long time. Gone. Gone. Okay. Wow. This is like, so this is the free people in pink. Oh, wow. You liked it. It Clearly fit you. Did I actually ever try these on? Cause why i've never worn them? Well, I think you should try it on maybe. I will try it on. That's your triumph pile.
Okay. This is the same shirt. You have to try these on because if they don't fit, we are getting rid of all of those. Okay. Okay, so your weakness is the tee shirts. So, Oh, no, dig it.
It's see through camo. Yes. So I'd wear a black tank top. I feel like you would wear this. Let's hang it though. That can go too. Done. Okay. So let's, we'll get you a triumph pile once you go through. That's for the girls. OK, I love getting into people's closets. This is so fun. Is it fun for you?
Okay. Um, this really fits you in the body. It's perfect for your shape. I just not sure if you'll wear it cause it's so low. So you'll have to answer that question. Thoughts? I think I'll wear it. I think the low cut for me is if I wear a necklace that kind of just comes like right to this point. And it kinda highlights it and it distracts from the cleavage, I think. Perfect. I agree. And this is a good pet for you, for your inwarded triangle athletic body.
You guys want to see a video on body types? Linda is in one of them. And, um, it's great. I'll link to it down below.
That's cute. Actually. I tell you what I don't like. I can't really see myself a lot from talking to you guys, but I don't like how it used like this.
I feel like it emphasizes the width and I'm like a mini person. I just want you to do it. I just don't like, I don't like anything cropped unless it's long. Okay. I like the sleeves on it. I do like the sleeves on it. I like the idea of all of them actually. Maybe it's cause I'm wearing a long dress. I had leggings on it.
Okay guys, this is the end of the video. Thank you so much Linda, for sharing your closet with us. Even though we thought we actually weren't gonna do a closet cleaning video, as it turns out. We know there's so much stuff here and so many amazing pieces for people that need them. Maybe we can donate them actually to the shelter or, yeah, so there's many options. I'm going to look up some of those options and I will leave some links down below of where you can donate your clothes.
Thank you guys for tuning in and we had a great time doing this. Yeah, it was a lot of fun. And we will see you on the next video or I will, but you'll see Linda in a few videos.

Kim was absolutely a dream to work with. I had to find a dress for a New York red carpet film premiere, and she came to my home with amazing options to get the look perfect. She nailed it, and was so kind and supportive! She really made me feel super confident for such an important event, and took the stress off of me for getting the look together!
It was so great to work with her, and I look forward to the next time :)
