My DIY closet makeover
Here are few closet cleaning tips that worked for me. And photographic evidence that it looked good for even a minute.
As mentioned earlier, my goal this year was to get real with my closet - in other words to think about what I really tend to wear.
Belts are one thing I have a lot of. But I hardly ever wear a belt. So I threw out belts by the handful. Above are the freshly organized survivors.
Clothes are no longer crammed like the 2 train at rush hour. I came to the conclusion that I rarely wear red, purple, lavender, or pink. So I got rid of that whole end of the rainbow, except for a couple of items in coral and yellow.
This has done miracles for me. If everything you've got is either blue or green or a neutral - then everything goes with everything. Close your eyes and grab any top and any bottom and they will be pretty much fine together.
Jackets have been cut back to four and probably could be further reduced to one or two. Shirts and blouses are also blue, green or neutral.
Then there are the shoes and jewelry. Two purges and still out of control. It's OK. I'm auditioning for The Coveteur.
