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!
Love it love it love it!!! Congratulations!
Will be ordering!

Congratulations! Just ordered my copy…can’t wait!!
Just ordered, as I do need help. I did unsubscribe to all the tempting emails..where I find things I didn’t think I needed, and actually didn’t. I do need help/moral support – getting rid of things in particular that were pricey and won’t fetch all that much at resale. But I feel guilt when I see them unworn in my closet, so I’d like to get those items out of there and move on. I hope the guide addresses that particular issue. In any case, looking forward to reading and implementing it.
Thanks for ordering. Yes! I do speak a lot about unworn items in the closet, and also how to rethink Investment Items….some of them don’t have to last forever once they’ve served their purpose.
Interested to hear your thoughts post!

Just ordered! I’m wondering, is this a paper guide that I will receive in the mail? Is there a link somewhere that I can access it digitally? I’m so excited to get started, thank you!
Hi Bevin, You should receive the PDF to download in a separate email. If you do not, please DM me on Instagram or email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get a copy to you!
Thank you for your order!
I downloaded The Wardrobe Project and read it last night – it’s great. I have a small request though, maybe for a post? When we see examples of women, well put together – I feel like it’s always in a colder season. Beautiful coats, leather bags, scarves etc all do so much to make it easier (in my mind) to have a signature style that you feel good about yourself in. A big problem for me is ~ summer. When it’s hot and you’re reduced to no layering, no coats, and you’re not a 25 year old who looks great in cut off jeans and a white tee ~ how can one look pulled together while battling the heat?
Thank you and mind reader! Stay tuned for my next post….which should help on some level.
Not sure if I’m ready…hoping your guide will help me decide to take the plunge. So, so many items in my closet that still have tags.
You can do it!!
