Closet Update

Monday, May 03, 2010
Just in case you thought I accumulated some more clothes. I didn't. I think I have less than before?? Who knew that was even possible!


The skirts and dresses are hidden in the back of the cave..

Somebody give me some clothes. Please?

  1. I love how you pair your outfits so well that it seems like you have an endless closet. I need to take some tips. I gave up shopping for Lent and never went back to the stores. (I'm quite proud!) I've decided to be creative instead and shop inside my own closet.

  2. You're great at remixing... I would never have thought your closet looked like this!! Mine is the complete opposite. I always feel like I have nothing to wear, yet my closet can't house all my clothes... most of the time my "changing room" looks like it's vomitted a ton of clothing! Yikes!

    xx Love & Aloha

  5. I agree, you're really good at styling them. I never thought your closet is like this cause you always manage to dress differently. Or it seems. I'm really impressed :-)

  8. it takes a real fashionista to style her outfits so differently with just a few pieces of clothings :) amazing, you!

    ReplyDelete
  9. LOL that's amazing. It seems you've really reduced your closet!

  11. Wow, you are truly the wardrobe remix queen! I don't think I could do it!!

  12. I'm in agreement with everyone else - you are amazing and making your clothes feel fresh each time. I bet a pared down closet feels kind of amazing. Mine is stuffed - and yet I still feel like I have nothing to wear!

  13. Oooo, I wish my closet looked like this. I think its refreshing to get your closet down to only the stuff you wear and love the most.

  14. You are the most impressive re-mixer of any of us, Elaine! I'd send you some clothes, but I'm pretty sure they would be too big for you.

  15. so sorry i couldn't make it last night, would have loved to have been there. i have a whole lot more clothes i'm just getting rid of! they're yours if you want them!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Definitely agree with everyone else; you certainly remix your clothes well! I feel like you always have a new outfit!

  17. So organised. You look like you have some divine items in there - quality over quantity, no? ;)
    Hehe. I know the feeling, though. I have too many clothes and not enough of them are quality, unfortunately.

  23. I can't remember the last time I cleaned out my closet..

    ReplyDelete
  24. I need someone to give me clothes too! I have a lot but very very few that fit right now. But in another few minutes, once I have the baby, my wardrobe will seem huge again :)

    ReplyDelete

  26. I wish my closet was nice and organized....I have stuff so tightly packed in I forget I even have most of the things in there. I really need to do some downsizing.

    ReplyDelete
  27. LOL, you don't want to add clothes before the move--unless it's from people in Utah and it would save them from mailing!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Cable Car Couture is doing a clothing swap next week, which I suppose wouldn't give you more clothes, but at least they'd be new to you. My problem is that I just don't feel like schlepping out to Riverton on a weeknight. If it was in Salt Lake on a Saturday, maybe.

  30. That's all? Really?! Wow!!! I'm impressed because I never look at your outfits and feel like I'm seeing tons of repeats. So, mad props to you! You also make me feel reaalllyy guilty that I have over abundance of stuff that is shoved in my closet but just sits there.

    ReplyDelete
  31. ur closet is sooo clean!!! that's how I'm aiming to get mine. it makes it easier to find things/put outfits together.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think I have less clothes now than before because after I got married, my closet has literally shrunk probably "3 sizes" down! Being "poor" and married is really tough, so I understand where you're coming from! lol.

  33. i need to clean and organize my closet! yours is so organized!
    Yaary.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I wish I was THIS Organized and had THAT much closet space....

    ReplyDelete
  35. I pretty much agree with what everyone else said. :o)

    ReplyDelete
  36. That's amazing! I'm trying to shrink the amount of space my clothes take up in my closet but it seems like you've mastered it! =)

    ReplyDelete
  37. WOW! You are so good at using what you've got and making it great. I feel like I can totally relate to you. I'm afraid to throw any clothes out because I think I might be able to re-use them somehow some way.

    ReplyDelete
  38. wow! I can't believe you don't have more stuff!!! This makes me feel bad about my closet. lol

    ReplyDelete
  39. You always seem to have such an array of outfits!! I need some new clothes as well! :)

    Oh, and happy birthday to your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Congrats on your move to LA! That is so wonderful. And lot's of good shopping!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Sometimes we have so much clothes but we never wear them... you make magic with your style and the clothes you have ;) congratulations on you frist year in the blogging world!!!! It has been a pleasure to meet you ;)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hey there!! Congratulations on your blog's bday!!

    May I ask how you came to have so many followers?!?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I’m LDS... Married...poor(kids cost to much money) and live in Utah. I think its great that your blog about modest fashion. Way to go!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wow I thought you had a huge closet with lots of clothes, because you seem to mix things really good. You rock girl:)

    ReplyDelete
  45. You are testament to not needing that much stuff - your looks are so fresh and new every time. I am inspired to stop consuming so much!

    ReplyDelete
  46. P.S. I think the difference in being fashionable or stylish is that stylish people look good no matter what they wear. You, my friend, are super stylish!

    ReplyDelete
  47. i'm totally with everyone else, it completely seems like you have an endless amount of clothing, but your closet says otherwise! i also need some advice on mixing up my clothing. i don't have a lot because i'm poor and a college student and i always feel like i'm wearing the same things all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  48. You gotta be kidding me! I always thought you had tons of clothes in your closet! But now I know, it is important to be creative and remix clothes, not only because of fashion, but also because we understand we cant have everything! I'm pretty sure you'll have other new clothes in your new home. Yes, I do believe that! xoxoox

    ReplyDelete
  49. A sparse closet is more a tribute to your sense of style. I'm even more impressed now - you are so creative.
