After my last post, my mind finally kicked into new year, high gear mode and this is the result. If you’ve been reading TFI for a while, you know I am about fewer, better things and have spent the last four years talking about ways to edit what you have so you can learn to Live with Less and Sharpen Your Style.
This came from personal experience. After being an editor for over 20 years at Bazaar and Vogue, I had amassed a fair amount of clothing. When my husband and I decided to downsize, I embarked on a rather radical closet clean out; I sent over 250 items to resale (!) and donated or recycled more. After I successfully completed this, it felt really good. I knew I wanted to help others, so I created a system based on my experience; I’ve talked about it on TFI each season and used some of it as a tool for clients I helped either streamline their closet and/or their style.
Now, I have culled everything I’ve written on this subject over the past few years into a 25-page guide ($30), The Wardrobe Project, which you can download and use to help you jump start a zero-waste New Year closet clean out. Or maybe you just need to work on staying true to your style. Maybe you’re still trying to figure out your style. I find it works on every level and still reference it every year. (I am about to embark on my own clean out, which is much easier and streamlined since my initial major cleanse.) You can purchase it here, or on the homepage. Also note, I have a new IG account, @thewardrobeprojectnyc, where you can follow updates and tips. Below is the chapter breakdown. I hope you find the guide as useful as I have and if you do, that you will encourage others to get their copy and do the same. Also suggestions/questions/thoughts are welcomed and encouraged!
