Are you ready to dig through your closet?
Hi <<First Name>>,
We are going to do a little archaeology dig in your closet, analyze the “skeletons” we find and try to identify the targeted holes in your wardrobe. We are also going to identify areas where you might be wasting money on the wrong purchases.
Now I am well aware that everyone has different wardrobe needs, but I thought by telling you a few client stories, this might to help identify some of your own issues.
One great example is Renee, who had purchased various black bottoms - skirts and pants, with different lengths and details. Although all black, they were uniquely different and served different purposes. So one might think: "black goes with everything so she will be able to get great use out of these pieces.”
Well, first of all, I do not think that black is best with everything. If you want to know more about that, you can read DOES BLACK GO WITH EVERYTHING?
But matching was not the issue. The problem was that these were career pieces and when we looked in her closet, she had bulky sweaters, casual tees etc. and very few career tops. So this was her hole.
Similarly I worked with another woman who had numerous printed tops, which looked great with jeans, but she could not wear jeans to work. Her hole was that she was missing bottoms in various solids to wear with these tops.
MY PERSONAL HOLE IN THE WARDROBE
I hate to wear flats. I know many of you cannot relate, but bear with me to get the concept of the story. So when I put on casual wear such as stylized tee shirts and sweatshirts, I pulled out my pointy-toe kitten heels (my version of “flats”) but the outfits just weren't working.
For others, I might recommend the slip on sneakers that are ubiquitous, but when I put them on, they just don’t look good, they are not my style and I don’t feel empowered. This was the hole in my wardrobe. I finally found a unicorn; it was a high platform, pointy toe, slip on sneaker with ombre sequins. They are perfect and I love them. However, they are bold and black and they don’t go with everything. So I still have a hole in my wardrobe and am on the hunt for the sister unicorn in a neutral like olive or pinkish tan.
What are your holes? What are the missing pieces you need to take your outfits from Fine 2 Fab?
On the flip side, are you wasting money on some of your purchases?
