14 Signs Your Wardrobe is in Great Shape

It’s true, we all like metrics, ways of measuring how we’re doing in achieving our goals and having a complete and functional wardrobe is a goal for many of our clients. Here is a great little post, courtesy of my AICI colleague, Elena Daciuk of Styling Fabulous, who was recently elected President of the San Francisco Bay Area AICI Chapter. One of the best things about being a member of our professional association (the Association of Image Consultants International) is collaborating and sharing information and today’s list is a good one, with just a couple of ICU additions/edits. Enjoy!

14 Signs Your Wardrobe is in Great Shape

Pastel Suits1.  Only clothing you can wear in the current season is in your closet…clothes for the opposite season are stored away…
2. Nearly everything is visible when you open your closet doors…clothes and accessories are not hard to find…
3.  Shoes are on shoe racks and every single pair is in good condition…
4.  Your dry-cleaning, alterations, shoe and handbag repairs are not buried in your closet somewhere…you’ve already dropped them off and they’re ready to be picked up this week… (or they might be hanging behind your ‘repair/clean/alter’ closet rod tag, ready to go out)
5.  You have outfit combinations that you’re 100% sure about…
6.  Your accessories are easy to grab whether they’re in your closet or on a dressing table…
7.  Handbags are organized on a shelf or hung on a rack…stuffing is placed inside of them to help keep their original shape…you’ve recently reconditioned them with leather lotion…
8.  All the hangers are the same color and design…no clothing items are being damaged by the use of wire hangers…
9.  Clothing is organized in a way that makes sense to you…either by color, type of item or lifestyle category…
10.  You have an outfit you could put on in five minutes for any occasion including dressy or casual parties, sporting events, girl’s night out, romantic dinners, interviews, festivals or funerals…
11.  All the clothes in your closet are in colors that flatter you and compliment your coloring…
12.  Everything in your closet fits you now or within a five-pound fluctuation…anything smaller or larger is stored away or given away…
13.  Everything in your closet makes you happy…you’re not hanging on to clothes that don’t suit you or conjure up bad memories or make you feel bad about yourself…
14.  You have your consultant’s phone number on speed dial, and you don’t hesitate to call her when you need help… (that would be 415.577.6133)…if you’re in the Bay Area, or 604-436-4769 if you’re here in Vancouver…
How did you do? I’m not a 14/14 yet (I admit, I sometimes am guilty of piling things up for repair and am hanging on to a couple of pieces). Regardless, as Elena says, picking out what to wear for your next event…whether it be a BBQ, movies with friends, date or gala…or for that matter…the next day for work…should be easy…and stress-free…If your closet needs a lot of work, click here and let’s get startedElena and I can both tell you story after story of clients who used our services – never thinking that getting dressed could be so painless…
