"You win some and you loose some... but you live to fight another day" - Pops from the movie Friday
Is your closet kickin' your butt? No, for real ...this is a SERIOUS question I'm asking because apparently, there are hundreds of thousands of people who let their closets give them a proverbial black eye! While having drinks with my girls last weekend, I overheard some chatter about fashion coming from the table on the right of me. Not to seem too nosy, I tried my best...awe hell, who am I kidding... I was totally eavesdropping because you know when it comes to the matter of fashion I'm all ears. The conversation went like this: " I'm so sorry I was late guys, but I REALLY didn't have anything to wear, and I'm so NOT kidding! I just feel like my closet is just "blah!" Like everything good is playing hide and seek! Nothing good in there. I need a closet overhaul...better yet my closet and I need to go to couples therapy because we STAY fighting each other! "
There was no doubt in my mind that the next up and coming comedian was sitting at that very table. I got a good laugh out of that one. But then I realized that lady was telling the truth. There are MANY people that are simply AFRAID to go in there closets....forget the boogie man jumping out and scaring you from the closet, it's more like an out of date, polyester, velvet, too small/too big dingy mess that goes bump in the nigh that ruins your girls night out! Well, I'm here to tell you , every dog has it's day, and so does every closet. Trust me you have gems in there. If you take the time to organize and fill your closet with plenty of items that you know looks great on your body type/shape and fits your personality, your closet won't be so "violent" towards you...you guys will actually become close friends! If you feel like I'm talking directly to you, then you need to go thrift shopping my friend. Find some items that you can wear year-round, items that will always stay in style, items that look expensive, but cost the fraction of the price. If you don't know how to thrift shop yet and need some pointers, don't trip...just keep up with the blog, I promise you, I'll give you lots of inspiration!
