Right folks, I know lots of my fellow bloggers have been making New Year's fashion resolutions. I particularly liked Dead Fleurette's unflinching honesty about what can happen with clothes resolutions and also Miss Moll Cherie's 2011 list. My first resolution of the New Year is this..a wardrobe cull. A brutal clear-out with the results going to charity shops and Ebay (to fund new purchases).

I used to have a wardrobe organised in colour, shoes in labelled boxes and all (ok..most) flats in the rack on my wardrobe door, coats were hung on the wall in the hall. I still have two accessories bags..one is a large Anya Hindmarch weekend bag that I keep all my wool/ cashmere scarfs/ hats and gloves in and the other is a large Laduree bag which I keep all my silk scarfs in neat rolls. These are the only two things that are still neat and orderly. I managed an underwear/ tights sort out before Christmas and that gave me a great sense of achievement. The top two drawers in my chest of drawers, top left now has tights/ socks rolled up on their sides arranged by colour and fabric, the top right has pants rolled into neat curls and bras laid out by colour.
|What I can only aspire to....regardless of organisation, I may have to move house first...and win the lottery.|
|I'd probably look as happy as she does if my wardrobe was in fact a room like Olivia Wilde's.|
|Rachel Zoe..not as glam a closet as I'd thought..|
|Then you see this lady's..and it's only the shoes you can see in this picture!|
