So I saw this post on moderneve a while back and thought - o.k. I am going to do this! Basically you are using a master list (below) to pare down your closet, weed out the junk and then identify weak spots.
I can forsee some problems right away like having way too many of some items (black pants) and hardly any of the others (the jacket / blazer category) but I just plan on ending up with a wish-list to keep in my purse to help steer my shopping. I end up with so many of the same type of clothes because they are easy to buy and easy to find on sale.
Oh and if I could throw out my whole wardrobe and replace it - everything new would be from Anthropologie - seriously. Have you seen the new '50's proper' line?
What is missing in your closet? What do you have way too many of?
