Yvonne wisely undertook her major wardrobe overhaul while her Mr. Wonderful was out of town, and by the time he returned she had accomplished some serious reorganizing. You can see pictures of her new purchases and her newly ordered closet below …
Not only did she arrange garments in color groups, but she also hung her magnificent collection of scarves where she can see them and remember to use them. Before, they were lovingly stored in Zip-Loc bags and virtually never worn because they were out of sight. They will now become the road map to mixing and matching her expanded selection of solid pieces into new, unexpected color combinations with as much pizzazz as the explosion of pattern she is accustomed to wearing. See them draped over the bottom bar of flocked hangers at the right side of this photo:
I’ll (immodestly) share her comment: Here is my closet…. and I’m amazed at the hundreds of options I have. You are a frigging genius! Thank you. – Yvonne
She also purchased a couple of ready-to-wear color columns – matching bottom and top – in two of her darker colors – teal and forest green. Can you imagine how many outfits she can create from those additions? Here’s one – green column with caramel coat (she already owned – note the connection to her hair color) and one of the gorgeous scarves she re-discovered. Great looking, no?
Her message: Long mushy thank you after my post-Nancy wardrobe “apocalypse and rebirth”. Can’t thank you enough for your insight and guidance. I visited Eileen Fisher and Nordstrom today and got a jump start on my new improved wardrobe by purchasing ready-made “columns” . Add a few items I can make from the newly optimized fabric stash I’ll be in great shape for our cruise in May.
I can’t wait to send you more, more and more photos as I progress so that you see the tangible difference you’ve made in my life. Best, Yvonne
We all deserve to fall in love with our appearance all over again. Find the beginning of Yvonne’s story HERE.
