Did you know that just by asking yourself one question you can completely transform what’s in your closet and how you get dressed? You might be thinking, if only it were that easy! Well, it can be.
Yes, that’s it! Those two little words can transform how you see your clothing and how you create ‘new’ outfits. It’s what we do when we work with our clients, when we get into their closets to make new outfits and what we suggest when they’re in a rut.
“The real voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” – Marcel Proust
Most women (myself included) fall into a rut at some point in their lives. With a busy schedule and others to take care of, taking time to spend on your wardrobe can fall to the bottom of your list. But after a while, you’ll start to feel frumpy, frazzled and anything but fabulous. It’s in those moments that you need to step back and assess the situation. Instead of reaching for your favorite pair of black pants – that are threadbare, but oh, so comfy – grab a pair of gray pants. Or camel. Or purple if you’re feeling it. Then, grab a top that you haven’t worn in a while, or have never worn with the pair of pants you chose. It’s a whole new perspective, which just might change how you see yourself!
Another benefit is that you can get more mileage and think more creatively about what you’re wearing. Our lovely client, Leeza, above, was traveling and needed warmth. Kirsten layered this faux shearling vest atop a liquid leather jacket to give her just that – plus, she had two other great pieces to wear and didn’t need to pack a bulky coat! Score!
So next time you get in your closet, ask yourself, “What’s unexpected?” and see what kind of wonderful new look you can create!
