A Happy Closet makes me a Happy Girl Thursday, Mar 21 2013 


Vector-girl-fashion-perfume_1440x900Well, it’s that time of the year…it’s Spring! Time for bunnies, beaches, and bikinis, also gym time. It is time to polish those toes and tan those legs. I love transforming my closet for this season. Getting rid of the sweaters and boots, making room for flirty skirts and sandals. All the colors of the rainbow in stock from every store and accessories boutique. Oh, how I missed you pretty florals and ruffles, to the eyelets and lace in my wardrobe. I will admit I’m a control freak when it comes to organizing my wardrobe and accessories. I have a closet that has sections to where I can separate my blouses, skirts, and dresses, all color coordinated. Now, this is an all day season transition. So be prepared: turn on some Sex and the City episodes, pour a mimosa, and make a day of it. Here are a couple of ideas to make this an easy transition:
•make a list of staple items you need to complete your Spring wardrobe.
•try on every item, sort out articles that need cleaning, donate, or trash.
•color coordinate your wardrobe that way it’s easier to see what you have on hand.
•separate your coordinates : blouses, pants, skirts, and dresses. Gives you a better idea on how to plan your outfit of the day.
•rule of thumb: if you haven’t worn it in the last year or it doesn’t fit, discard it. It just means more room for new pieces.
•don’t forget those shoes, boots, and sandals. Any scuffs use a shoe polish, get a credible shoe repair to repair any caps, heels, or repairs. Any damage to shoes that cannot be salvaged, donate! Always look polished from head to toe…
•Accessories include handbags, scarves, and hats. Inspect all items to keep or discard.
•jewelry should be cleaned and repair if needed, discard any pieces broken if need be.
•I am a big fan of donating all my items to a women’s shelter or good will.
Lastly, not sure to what to do with pieces of clothing and accessories…have a swap party. You heard me, invite our girlfriends over with their items to swap out, chill some wine, prepare some finger foods and dessert. Set out all of you and girlfriends goodies and swap out your items. You never know what you may not love anymore could be a girlfriend’s most beloved.
Happy Springtime…
