Spring is in the air – and so is the urge to get organized. Last week I did three Closet Editing and Organization consultations. The major items missing in each of these closets were:
1) a full-length mirror
2) a hand mirror to use to see the back view
3) adequate lighting to determine color matching
These are not luxury items but necessities for any well-dressed person. You have to be able to see what you look like top to toe to determine whether an outfit really works on you. AND you need at least a hand mirror to be able to see the back view. Trust me, this is not something to leave to chance!!!
Finally, lighting matters! Colors are impossible to match in a dark and dreary surroundings. You will have a lot more success and fun putting together ensembles if you can actually see what you are doing. And you will save yourself the embarrassment of showing up in a jacket and slacks of two clashing colors. Even black has to be color matched!
If you need help with setting up a proper closet, give me a call. I can help you organize the closet and give you recommendations on closet designers or resources if you want to do it yourself. Typically, this service takes about 2-3 hours.
