I love the middle of February! Spring fashion and cosmetics are arriving! All my favorite mags weigh about 20 pounds each because they are stuffed with all the new deliciousness soon to arrive at a store near you. Or just a click away digitally depending on which shopping fix you need to satisfy.
But girls, it is also that time of year to go into your closet[s] and take a long hard look at what has to go. If you want to take a martini shaker and your favorite glass be my guest. That will make it more fun. Just don't start shopping until you make room for what's coming. Still have items with tags hanging in there because you didn't find the thing to wear with it? I love INSTYLE magazine because it tells you which trends and what goes with what if your fashion challenged in this area. But! Back to your closet!
Here are my 3 practical tips to get the job done!
- Take trash bags with you into the closet and when finished stuffing them with things to go-put the bags immediately in your car and set the GPS for GOODWILL. If you leave piles on the floor somehow they'll end up back in your closet. NO! They must go!
- If you haven't worn it in a 2 years get rid of it. Seriously. If you hear yourself saying"But I might wear it again" ignore that thought cause you know deep in your heart you are not going to wear it again. Sentimental clothes like wedding gowns and your first prom dress belong in storage not your every day closets!
- If you have some crazy pieces you purchased that look retro or just strange really- create a Halloween costume box that can be stored in the garage or basement. You know- the 50's skirt you thought was so cute? Or the black netted top for the disco? You can go as a 1950's vampire this year! Fabulous.
Okay my lazy princesses! get those martini's shaken but not stirred and do what you have to do!
