New Series Coming: Working Your Closet


When I started this blog I had a closet full of pieces that I only knew how to wear one way.  Because I didn't know how to shop for versatile pieces or how to utilize a piece in multiple ways, I found myself feeling like I had to buy more and more clothes to diversify my wardrobe.  One of my hopes with this blog was that I'd be able to build a mix-and-match wardrobe that I could get more mileage out of and ultimately cut down the felt need to buy more.  I wanted to bring depth to my closet instead of continuing to go for breadth.  

Another hope was that I'd be able to help others do the same.

Next week I'm kicking off a little series on learning to work your closet.  Right now I'm mostly planning to focus on how to build a remixable wardrobe.  I'm definitely not claiming to be an expert of any sort.  Plenty of you are style bloggers who are natural remixers and fashionistas, but there are also many who are in the same boat as me and are learning to remix your pieces better.

Remixing clothing didn't come naturally to me and I had to learn it, and I know a lot of you feel me on that!  So while I'm no expert, I thought it would be helpful to share what I've learned on the journey so far.

Like I said, currently I plan to talk about how to build a remixable wardrobe, but I also want to hear from you all to see if there are additional topics you'd like discussed!  If so, take a minute to fill out the survey, and we'll see where it takes us!

  3. I'm really looking forward to this. I have the same problem as you; I have a few items that I always end up wearing in the same way and the rest just fills out my closet.

  5. I am excited about this new series and would love to talk about this on my blog as well. I started my blog in hopes of remixing the MANY pieces I already have to cut back on spending, so I look forward to the many outfits pieced together in the future.

  6. I always like to learn more about how others organize their closet! Mine is a constant work in progress. I have it organized for a little while and then totally slack. It's my project this weekend to purge. Audrey, I love your easy style, it's refreshing to me because I'm such a layering nut--can't get away from it. Trying to mix things up by pairing down, but it's hard, yo. Have a great weekend!

  8. Aww, thanks, Van!  That means a lot to me coming from you.  Sometimes in my silly moments I get a little self-conscious that my style is so simple.  But, good thing we're blog buddies because I'm trying to mix it up a little by layering a little more!  :)
