If you're familiar with my clothing storage though, you know that I keep clothes all over the place. I don't store away seasonal clothes and try to stay organized, but I've got half the main bedroom closet which includes a bunch of plastic pull-out drawers, an entire dress, plus the closet in the guest room. I've also purchased some jewelry display cases and leave that out on a desk, and hang some of my purses up on hooks.
Which pretty much means that as good as my intentions to be streamlined are, I end up in situations where I can dig four navy blazers out of my closet. And about 4,562 striped tops, an ever-multiplying number of leopard print shoes, a retail store's worth of costume jewelry - but seriously, cruise ship activity directors aside, who needs more than one navy blazer?
I lose track of stuff all the time, which sucks. There are pieces that I love in my closet that I haven't worn through most of 2012 because they got lost in the racks. Sweaters buried under other sweaters. The perfect pair of shoes that I know I have for an outfit but cannot locate to save my life.
Now I know I'm not the only gal here who has got a lot of stuff, so I need some advice, ladies. I want to make sure I'm giving the proper love to the clothes I've got and I can give as many pieces "their time in the sun" as I can. How do you get the most wear out of your clothing? How do you keep up-to-date with your own wardrobe and make sure that things don't get "lost" in the closet?
And yes, my shirt is new. You may or may not ever see it again when I put it back in the drawer and it gets suffocated by all my other striped tops vying for attention.
