After the Holidays, I began the long and arduous process of cleaning out my closet. Actually, I am exaggerating... it wasn't really that tough.
I wanted to start off 2011 without the clutter. I finished bagging up the things I haven't worn in a really long time and donated the stuff to Goodwill.
I once heard the expression, "when in doubt, throw it out", suggested as a mantra for closet-cleaning. Well, I finally threw out items that had been sitting there for a long, long time - allowing me to reinvent my wardrobe. I must say now that I can actually see what I have, it is so much easier to get dressed in the morning. It allows me to create a lovely new outfit on a whim - love that!
Once you get your closet in order, create your own "dressing room" ~ maybe by adding some fresh flowers in a simple glass vase come spring to your bathroom. And, display your perfume in a pretty way - maybe by displaying it on a gorgeous vanity tray. Like this soft, romantic one from Juliska or if you want something more boho-chic try this one Crate & Barrel; or you may prefer this more expensive tray from Labrazel.
I also have some exciting news to share...
I am now a contributor for the blog CheapChicas where I will be writing a monthly LOOK FOR LESS column. I am super excited about it, and my first column comes out today - you can read it here.
Tell me what you think! I hope you like it. CheapChicas has been one of my favorite blogs for a while and it's all about looking fabulous on a budget. Young Sophisticates will continue on, of course, as a place for all things feminine, chic & sophisticated.
