Nothing says spring like cleaning out your closet. To help me dig out from under mine, Robin Saperstain a wardrobe stylist and LA fashionista came over to my house to give me a wardrobe overhaul. Robin has worked with many entertainment industry clients including some of Hollywood’s well-known moms like Denise Richards and Ali Landry. She has even styled a fashion show during New York Fashion Week and was featured in Elle Magazine and Elle.com.
I was SUPER excited to have her give me a fashion make-over! As fashionable as I think I am – I’m a busy Mom, so of course I to get lost in the shuffle sometimes. Even savvy sassy moms need some friendly fashion reminders and a little push to get out of the yoga pants. It was so fun hearing her thoughts and reactions to certain items hiding in my closet…Watch!
7 things to consider when cleaning out your closet this Spring:
(Don’t worry, I had plenty of these things hiding in my closet too!)
1. Juvenile Graphic Prints: Do not wear Hello Kitty or any Disney character out of the house EVER. That goes for trendy prints or skater/surfer t-shirts that your daughter might also own.
2. Slutty Vegas Tops: You are not 24 anymore, think classy not trashy. I think Rachel Bilson said it best “You try something on, and if you feel like a slut, you probably look like one.” < love this.
3. Velour Track Suits: These outfits are not longer a cool or hip look. We know they are comfy, but just wear them while cleaning the house not leaving the house.
4. Ass Candy: Any sweatpants with words on the butt, it is not stylish to be 35+ and have PINK spelled out across your ass. You are not in a sorority. Another big DON’T is the blinged out jeans with rhinestones on the ass. It’s not sophisticated or age appropriate.
5. Out with the Old: Donate, sell or toss things you haven’t worn in a year. If you have not worn it in a year, chances are you probably won’t wear it for another year and then another year. Let it go.
6. Fashion Casualties: Anything that has stains, missing buttons, holes, too small, too big or too difficult to take care of needs to go. You can do it, it’s just taking up space and making you closet feel cluttered.
7. Pick a Style: Ask yourself this: What would ___________ (insert style icon) wear? Find a celebrity style that inspires you. Reese Whiterspoon, Jessica Alba, Nicole Riche, Kate Middleton, Gwen Stefanie, Katie Holmes or Michelle Obama.
