This is just a quick post to tell the world that Project Runway has begun. With the sole purpose being that once it is out there in the Internet I have to complete. Or at least I will try.
See, I have clothes. But I never have anything to wear. Sound familiar?
I meant to do the hanger trick last year, but pregnancy kinda occupied my year in 2012. So I started this year with all my hangers turned backwards and when I wear an item I hang it back up the regular way. Then at the end of the year I can easily see what I haven't worn. This did work, for a while. I would immediately look for clothes with the hangers backwards when searching for something to wear.
I have since found out that when you keep your clothes in piles on the floor of your closet this doesn't exactly have the same effect.
I have been reading a few fashion blogs and have learned about Go Chic or Go Home. It is a site that allows you to upload all your items to create your own virtual closet. At first I didn't see the benefit, because who needs a virtual closet when I can just walk in my real closet and see what I have. Then I remembered my piles-on-the-floor issue and started to see how a virtual closet may be helpful.
I want to know what I have so that I can see what I need to keep a basic wardrobe. Then the fancy stuff gets used more when you can have a basic place to start when picking an outfit. Does it sound like I know what I'm talking about? I. Don't.
So I have a white sheet over my door and a wreath hanger to hang each item as I take a picture to load into my virtual closet. Hopefully now when I pin outfits in Pinterest I can go to Go Chic or Go Home and design a similar outfit using items that I have.
I'll keep you posted on how it goes. Happy 4th!!
