Planning A Wardrobe

My closet is a mess. I am trying to weed out some stuff, but I just haven’t had the time to get it organized this fall (it’s winter now…).

Perhaps it’s time to rethink my wardrobe goals. Last week I saw a post by Diane Danielson on making a business plan for your wardrobe.

Here are the rules:

1.  Write a mission statement. 

2.  Find your signature look and stick with it. 

3.  Promote from within. 

4.  Downsize strategically. 

5.  Employ best practices.

6.  Scale down expansion plans. 

7.  Negotiate lower prices with vendors. 

These can be boiled down to (1)Figure out how you want to dress;   (2)Keep what works with your image and chuck the other stuff; and (3)Only buy stuff that will work with your life, and try to get the best price.

Of course, I am still stuck at the strategic downsizing phase, with no end in sight. Wish me luck.


  1. I need to downsize myself in order to get back in my wardrobe. On a more productive note, I have been remodeling my house and it is fierce.

  2. Thanks for the link; brilliant and simple. So long as I don't need to synergize anything.
