Cleaning Up!

Happy New Year!  Brand new 2016 is a time to get organized.

  
Bid adieu to the Christmas decorations and while I’m at it, get rid of a few pieces in the wardrobe.

  
Replace white t-shirts, any sweaters with mega-balls or the moths have nibbled on, distressed jeans that are more holes than denim (see photo) and anything else that is deemed stale, icky or bleuch.

  
The wintry weather is the perfect time to burrow indoors and get the annual closet purge done!  

  

New Year’s Cleanse

No green juices involved, unless you so choose to sip some delish juiced veggies while reading this post.

New Year, New You.  Time to take a break from the parties, the cocktails and all the other parts of the decadent life.   Why not do the same to your wardrobe?

Closet Cleanse 2015!   Pull those pieces that you have not worn in over two years, and put them in a box.  Seal the box with tape, label it with a sharpie and record the date, all the while sniffling back the tears as you say adieu to those overalls, suede pants and fluorescent anythings.  Put the box in the attic / basement / garage / etc, and revisit it in six months.  If you’re closet resembles anything like Cher Horowitz’s (aka Alicia Silverstone in Clueless) then do 3+ boxes!

If you haven’t missed any one piece uncontrollably, as in waking in the middle of the night tear-streaked cheeks from sobbing into the pillow yearning for that mustard yellow pilled sweater, then give that box of previously passionately loved clothes to a charity of your choice.

Incidentally, this is a picture of the closet at Teen Vogue’s office – dare to dream people, dare to dream!

Funny reversecommuter story: my husband had a meeting at The New York Times and accidentally got off on the fashion floor – can you imagine?!?!?!?  He said he realized that if I had been with him he probably would never have seen me again!  LOL & painfully accurate!!!!

Go reward yourself with the purchase of something that has been sitting in your Moda Operandi or net-a-porter wish list.  Maybe something in Pantone’s Color of the Year Marsala? Purging never looked so good!
