Spring cleaning shouldn't exclude your closet. It's time to give your closet a makeover this season! Give away anything that you haven't worn in over a year. Add to that anything that no longer fits. (You can't hang onto those jeans that are 2 sizes too small forever!) There are many good charities that will take those clothes that have been just sitting in your closet, and give them or sell them at a reduced price to people who would greatly appreciate them.
Next, let's tackle the shoes. Most women have a TON of shoes! If you don't wear them, give them away! They aren't doing any good sitting in your closet collecting dust.
Look at the space you've made! Take an inventory of your current wardrobe. What are you missing? Do you have the staple pieces that all women should have? Read the articles below from Marie Claire magazine. These are interviews done with Tim Gunn who outlines the building blocks of fashion and answers some style questions.
So, what is your closet missing? A fabulous pair of black dress pants? A great fitting jacket? To get a custom fit garment that is made for your body to your personal measurements I suggest checking out Etsy.com. There are many wonderful fashion designers/seamstresses that could fill that hole in your closet with clothing custom made for you.
Below are some links to designers who take custom orders. Shop handmade and get a custom fit!
