If you saw me on the daily, you’d LAUGH if I started talking fashion with you (I prioritize comfort - ha!). But, I have a fun secret - I’ve been designing clothes and sewing since I was a kid. I lived and breathed fashion magazines. I took private fashion design classes, learned about proportions, style, how to draw a croqui, and plenty more. I wanted to go to the Fashion Institute of Technology since I learned about it when I was 13, and I did. I have a Bachelor's of Science in visual merchandising and home product development, BUT my portfolio was all fashion and the visual design department head who reviewed it asked multiple times if I wanted to switch to fashion design before accepting me.
I still wonder today what life would be like if I did become a fashion designer, BUT it’s incredibly hard work. I’m not lazy, I just wanted to be able to explore different types of design. After college I worked for many years in eCommerce and digital marketing, specifically photo shoot production, fashion styling and studio operations.
When you see me in jean shorts and a tee shirt (my fanciest #momlife lately), with no makeup on, don't judge. I’m excited to dive deep into the closet with you this week, talk a bit about why it’s such an emotional place, how getting over the mental hurdle is key to cleaning out your closet, how to organize for YOU and how a capsule wardrobe MAY help you (or a few other approaches you may want to try). Although I’m not in love with the "look" of the closet right now, the system works, so why fix what's not broken?
Any thoughts on cleaning out the closet?
