Full disclosure: I’m type triple A. If I can organize anything to make my life easier and more efficient, especially with my insane schedule, then I will make it happen.
I’m also a shopping addict! It’s such a bad habit, but to quote Confessions of a Shopaholic:
“You know that thing when you see someone cute and he smiles and your heart kind of goes like warm butter sliding down hot toast? Well that’s what it’s like when I see a store. Only it’s better.”
I love mixing colors, prints, and textures. And I love the confidence that flows through you when you know you look good!
That being said, I’m not made of money and I wanted to organize my closet to make sure I’m incorporating the pieces that I already own into new outfits. This way, I’m capitalizing on what I already own and getting more $$$ per wear.
Enter my saving grace: Stylebook.
Style book is an app you can purchase for $3.99. It allows you to photograph and upload your entire closet (jewelry and all!), as well as style inspiration, and stats on each item. Using your own clothes, you can put together outfits, and even put those outfits on a calendar to plan out what you’re wearing weeks in advance. These statistics also help you calculate price per wear, and encourage you to incorporate all your items as often as possible.
For me, it’s a lifesaver! I’m required to dress in business casual daily for work, and trying to look nice and stylish everyday is exhausting when you’re trying to juggle normal household duties and homework.
That may sound overdramatic, but have y’all heard that the most successful people in the world wear a “uniform,” meaning they wear nearly the same thing everyday to cut down on the brain power it requires to put together an outfit. It’s real, I promise. And since I’m not feeling like dressing in the fashion of Steve Jobs everyday, a la t-shirt/jeans/sneakers, this is my alternative.
