I think that I have what most women want. A closet that you can walk around in, or sit and think in. For me fashion is a part of my life, something that I have loved from the time I was a little girl. When I’ve put together a good look the adrenalin rush is amazing.
For me the inspiration for an outfit starts from a thought. I start with one piece of clothing, or an accessory and build around it. It is such an accomplishment when I have nailed it and receive compliments. Each piece in my closet means something to me. I can probably tell you where I bought everything. I know if it was a present, I can tell you when I received the gift and what the occasion was.
For the work week I have a process. Sometimes I pull pieces that I may think of wearing and hang them in full view from the shelves. So on Sunday my closet is a neat space, by Friday there are shoes, bags, and belts everywhere. The spaces on the shoe shelves means the shoes are usually on the floor.
My closet is my safe haven. Sometimes I go in and just sit, and I either think about my day or think what the heck am I going to wear tomorrow? Sometimes when I look around I think I should never buy another piece of clothing, shoes, jewelry or bag, but I know that I will. I also love, love, love, my chandelier. I love that it matches my window treatment and my bench. That’s the matching freak in me.
Sometimes when I have a bad day I go to my closet for a few moments and I feel better. I just thought I’d share some thoughts from my closet.
