I admit it – I'm a **closet junkie **and a virtual pack rat.
When you open my closet – there are piles and piles of clothes which are a combination of items that I never wore, those that I wore only once – or even items which I had from as far back as I was a teenager!
I can't seem to throw anything in the hope that I'll see a particular outfit in a new light – or worse, in the off chance that I get to fit in them again.
And I do know that I have to get rid of about half of the stuff that I have, so I bought Nina Garcia's "**Little Black Book of Style**".
Here are her 7 golden rules (which I promise to follow) on how to "edit your closet".
1 Leave What Looks **good **on You
2 Buy the **right **size of Clothes – Not Smaller
3 Don't Be Sucked in by the **Sale **tag
4 Don't Play It Too **safe **– Always Add Something Extra
5 Do Not Buy According to the trends
6 Be Ruthless when You Edit
7 Edit Your Closets with Your Best Friend Together
All right, so the first thing that I'll do is put on the "**Toss**" file anything that does not fit – and everything which makes me look all frumpy and awful.
Thank goodness that I'm the type who doesn't subscribe to **trends **that much – so I don't have a lot of not-trendy-anymore clothes to go through.
Lastly, I better call up my BFF after I sort through the "**Toss**" and "**Keep**" file – I'm sure we'll have a blast sorting through all that stuff from my closet. And I'm sure my friend will keep me in line so that I won't '**cheat**' and filch any item that I don't need.
Seriously, I don’t want to be a closet junkieanymore.
