Welcome to closetquest and my personal mission to help others have a great looking wardrobe everyday of the week. How did this journey begin? Well for years I was a super shopper. Every weekend was devoted to investigating new boutiques and scouring my old favorites for new and unusual items to add to my collection. My closet was filled with designer labels and shoes galore. What a life! Then I got laid off from my job. My savings dwindled down as I spent months looking for a job. My carefree weekends at the mall had come to an end. Still bitten by the fashion bug, I decided to take a hard look at my closet. I noticed it was filled to the brim with stuff, but I still felt like I had nothing to wear. It's then that I decided to do an inventory of my wardrobe. I was shocked to find that 20% of the things in there had never been worn. I had other things that were buried, things I thought I had lost or given away. Several items were so outdated, they didn't deserve a space in my closet. After sorting through all the items, donating some, and throwing others away, I only had a third of the items I started out with. However, this time, my closet only contained things that I actually wore and loved. From there I experimented with ways to make those clothes look new and different everyday. I learned how to stretch my wardrobe and not my budget. Are you ready for a closetquest?
