As a stylist, style personality and editor I’ve spent many years chasing, writing and talking about fashion and trends. Even as a style professional (or maybe especially so), no matter how full my closet, I was always seeking the next perfect piece, the next purchase. The volume of clothes was overwhelming and no matter how frequently I purged and donated, it seemed like I was on a hamster wheel of rotating clutter. 

Then one day, in passing, my mother-in-law mentioned this little book she had just bought called The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo; just flipping through a few pages her words resonated with exactly what I needed and wanted at the perfect time. Particularly her concept that every item should “spark joy”. So I followed along diligently, taking every.single.piece of clothing out from drawers, closets, storage piling it all in the living room– with a mountain of clothes in front of me, I couldn’t ignore that I had accumulated all this stuff, spent all that money and didn’t even have the presence of mind to know that it was happening. 

In this video I quickly take you through the process of clearing out the clutter and how to organize the pieces that passed the make-you-feel-so-good they deserve a spot in your closet test. If you heard/glanced/perused The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and thought “hmm...” or just have the urge to reset and lighten up that wardrobe energy this is the place to start.
