Spring Cleaning Tips to Spruce Up and Clean Out! Does What’s in Your Closet Like You?

Why is it that most American women have closets full of clothes but the first thing we say when we open the door is, “I have nothing to wear!”? What if you could put on clothes everyday and love what you saw in the mirror? Pure bliss, right? Women usually love what they buy, yet hate two-thirds of what is in their closets. When exactly does the disconnect happen? When did “I love this new outfit I just purchased” suddenly change to “I hate what’s in my closet”?

Maybe it’s time to ask, “Does what’s in my closet like me?” Do the clothes really flatter my figure and are the colors right for me…are they the right shades of green for my Autumn needs…are there buttons that need replacing…hems too long or short…do they hang right without bunching in places…do my clothes like me because they actually fit me and make me feel like a knockout when I wear them?

Learning to come out of your closet in style starts with what’s IN your closet, and loving what’s IN there is possible. Being able to find what’s in there is an entirely different issue. I recently had the privilege of working with national custom closet company, ORG by Design. We partnered together for a win-win opportunity that resulted in my getting a total custom closet makeover at their expense! I was creating a video for local web station and we featured before and after views of the makeover experience. We exchanged services and I could not be more proud to promote both their quality and service! No job is too small or big. And they don’t only do closets…their services include kitchen pantries, garages, office shelving etc. Learn more at www.orgbydesignonline.com.

In the video (which is also available for viewing on my You Tube channel), I cover the importance of having the right contents in your wardrobe and the benefits of how an organized closet can help get your day off to a great start. Whether you have a stand and reach in size closet, a nice average size one or a larger walk in, boutique-style of closet, being able to find both pair of shoes and the slamming suit that they go can be a daily chore. We shot four segments covering how to avoid chaos in your closet, the importance of dressing according to your body shape, the value of wearing the “right” colors for you and of course, the final closet reveal. It was such an enjoyable experience to talk about what I do for a living and really show first hand some tips for dressing with order.
