Before and After: Clothing Closet Organization
Krystle Marks is a personal stylist who puts together flattering outfits for her clients with ease. She started her full service personal styling business to help women feel beautiful. Who doesn’t want that?
I’m jealous of her talent. Shopping for clothing completely overwhelms and frustrates me, especially now that my fashion savvy daughter is off at college! When I first met Krystle she mentioned that her closet needed a bit of organization and SHE was feeling overwhelmed.
We are perfect for each other:) With our complimentary skills we decided to become each others client. I was overjoyed to have a closet to organize (I LOVE closets) and I would receive some desperately needed fashion advice!
Here are some ” before” photos.
Krystle’s closet was very full. The first step of the organizing process is to decide what to keep and what to save. She did a fine job making the decision to let go of clothing that no longer fit or no longer wore. Look at all the bags of clothing she decided to donate or re-sell!
Everything was sorted and categorized into groups: pants, shirts, shoes, workout clothing, dresses, ect. Her husband’s clothing was just re-categorized; we left the purging for him to do. I removed all the empty hangers and stored her favorites in one location in the closet. The wire hangers were taken to the dry cleaners for re-use.
We discussed supplies she needed to purchase: plastic boxes, wood clamp-style pant hangers, 3M Command Hooks, and a scarf hanger.
She wanted to finish the project on her own. When she finished, I was thrilled to receive these photos. She did an amazing job, don’t you think so?
Are you feeling inspired? What area will you organize?
