I was so excited to be asked to write a guest post for on Strategies for Spring Cleaning Your Wardrobe.  Check it out here and let me know what you think.  Have you got strategies that work for you?


As my regular readers know I hired a stylist at the end of March to help me re-work my wardrobe.  7 bags of clothing left my house... and what was left was re-organized into different coordinated outfits.  I was left with a shopping list, a number of items to take to the tailor and some […]
