Clothes Pin-Update!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Closet Organization

What ever  happened to the good old clothes pin? I remember as a young girl the smell of clothes hanging outdoors in the Summer air being held onto the clothes line by clothes pins. I KNOW this makes me sound like I’m a 100- but stay with me for a moment to think about air drying your garments  outdoors (which P.S. in the day was not only environmentally savvy but when you brought your clothes indoors they had the most lovely scent of summer-a wisp of floral and fresh air-it was heavenly). When I came across this perfect way to display your scarves I went nostalgic for a simpler time when clothes pins were a laundry room staple and life was a tad simpler.  Maybe it’s time to bring back the clothes pin and hanging our garments out to dry when the weather gets warm.  Just a thought-but a nice one at that.

For an Instant Update-here are a few ways to insert the clothes pins of yesterday for multiple uses TODAY!

Nina Garcia (Editor of Marie Claire and Project Runway judge) is always perfectly put together and her comments on Project Runway are direct and to the point so it’s really no surprise that her closet should follow the same discipline. Nina’s  Manhatten  apartment was featured in Architectural Digest and of course we had to take a peak inside of her fabulous closet. It’s a designers dream and organized within every inch.

Closet Cleanse

Posted By: Terri
Category: Closet Organization

It’s THAT time of year again. The last box of Christmas wrap  is finally in storage and that beautiful Christmas tree that you were so excited about a month ago is  now sitting on the curb waiting to be picked up by the recycler.

Since we are on the topic of recycle why not peak into the hallowed halls of our closet and see what needs to go and what needs to stay. It is a New Year and as fashion changes by the seasons so does our closet.  Really take a look and as Tim Gunn would say EDIT! Let’s get rid of anything that you haven’t worn for at least a year and  make some room for new items.  I know this is a little tough  love BUT you will be so much happier after the closet cleanse  when you venture back into your wardrobe and find items that you can wear NOW!

Closet Envy…

The start of every New Year brings about the need to cleanse. Not only do we want to clean up our diet from all the oodles of sweets and treats we devoured during the holidays but our closets could do well by a bit of cleansing as well. I mean do we really NEED that skirt we bought on sale from 5 years ago that still has the tags on it? Maybe you will wear it SOMEDAY.  I want you to just give some thought to all the pieces hanging around  your closet that you haven’t worn in eons. It’s just a thought. We won’t do anything right now. Promise. Just give yourself sometime (say a day or two ) and see if you could “embrace” the idea of donating some items to a worthy cause or even selling it on eBay or Thread flip. In the meantime… here are some closets to inspire you and get you in the mood to upgrade. It’s a New Year ..How does the saying go: “Out with the old in with the new!”

Time to Flip for Fall.

Posted By: Terri
Category: Closet Organization Fashion

Here we mid-October. Can you just believe it??? If you haven’t had time yet to” Flip your Closet for Fall” you best get going before we are knee deep in Winter.

Here’s a quick list that might help move you  toward a more do-able Fall closet (translation) it’s time to put the sundresses to rest for the year and focus on what you’ll be wearing in the colder months ahead. If you’re experiencing any type of Indian Summer and think you have gobs of time to delay your flip…(Faster than you can scrap the first frost off your car window) -you’ll be looking through your closet for that perfect pair of wool pants that you just can’t seem to find.

Motto of the day: Don’t Delay, start your Fall Flip TODAY!  

1. When starting to flip your closet for Fall, (even if you have a rather small space to hang your clothing) here’s what you need to do first.

TIP:*** I highly recommend breaking your closet flip into small do-able tasks… (perhaps an hour each night after work). By the weekend you’ll be just about done and ready to enjoy a relaxing 2 day respite from the daily grind.

First Evening: Make three piles: First Pile DONATE: Go through your closet and see if there are any items you haven’t worn all summer (or the summer before). BE HONEST and remove these items NOW.  Also remove any items that no longer fit or make you feel fabulous. Second Pile: Put aside all items that need to go to the cleaners. Pile number three Remove any items that need repair. (Bag items/put them in your car and drop them off the next day or before weeks end). This will feel so good to get done-I promise…it’s like a Cleanse …only better because you have no icky green liquid after taste.  

Second Evening: Neatly fold any summer sweaters, t-shirts, swimwear/summer wraps and cover ups and /or any other items that will stretch.  Place in drawers or a clean storage container and set aside.

Third Evening: Box up shoes/sandals/summer sneakers and purses. Put in drawers or clean storage containers and set aside.

Fourth Evening: Take any and all summer skirts/pants/capri’s/sundresses/evening wear/long dresses (you get the picture) anything else that is Summer Apparel Only and move to your storage closet). If you don’t have a storage closet and need to keep them in the same closet-move each category to the end of each section.

Fifth Evening: (Can be done during the weekend so that you have Friday Night free) Move all winter apparel into your closet by category and length. For example: Insert blazers/jackets/blouses/skirts/folded pants on hangers. If you hang your pants full length then add them before your dresses and then formals. Always organize short to long and within each category light to dark. It will save you oodles of time when you’re getting dressed.

*Insert winter handbags light to dark on shelves, sweaters, leggings and of course shoes/boots in clear boxes or on shelves.

Five Hours and your Fall Flip will be done!
