Have you started to organize your closet for Fall? Do you look in your closet and think “I have nothing to wear” or the opposite–are you overwhelmed by the choices you have and what you’ve accumulated? Do you have a Signature Style? Do you stick to it? Maybe it’s time for you to take on The Wardrobe Project.
Refreshing your closet for a new season is the perfect time to let go of clothing that no longer works and concentrate on what makes you feel your best, and I am here to help. (If you’ve already heard this, I’m sort of sorry, but then again, repetition can lead to mastery, which in this case means creating a well-edited closet.) Since going through an epic closet clean out myself (very epic, I now have four handbags and one is newly acquired), I came up with what I think is a thoughtful approach on how to hone in on your personal style by taking steps to consider what you have, what you wish you had, and what doesn’t work.
I miss nothing I let go of and now that I have filled in the missing holes in my wardrobe, I feel like I have an edited, dream closet of items I love and wear often–not a mish-mosh of whim purchases and pieces that I didn’t wear but couldn’t part with. Plus I have learned to block out the noise of “I want what she has” and curtail those “I don’t need it but…” purchases which ultimately allowed me to afford some wish list items that have routinely languished on the list because the money always went elsewhere.
If you feel like you could use some help, you can either watch my (unpolished, made-in-a-pandemic quality!) IGTV videos or if you want to take it a step further, I am available for virtual appointments. I love working one-on-one with women, it’s a chance for me to offer truly personalized advice and ideas. What makes me qualified? I worked for over twenty years as an editor at Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue, where I spent most of my time not only covering and writing about fashion, but also styling women for shoots, culling the best fashion ideas from around the globe and distilling what works and what doesn’t to help women look and feel their best. I love fashion but am more obsessed with personal style and know that when you discover yours, you are able to create a succinct, effective wardrobe. Because a thoughtful wardrobe is a more sustainable wardrobe.
