My closet is a mess. Well, not just a mess, in truth, it is a disaster. According to my kids, the solution to my problem is to cease and desist all shopping immediately. My husband, probably fearing conjugal deprivation, quietly suggests maybe “less” shopping might be in order. My personal opinion is that if hubby would just see fit to vacate the closet we share; all my problems would be solved.
However, in light of the fact that none of these three options is likely to take place anytime soon (although I still foster high hopes for ‘husband vacating the closet’ scenario), the other day I was finally forced to face the reality that somehow, someway, the problem had to be addressed.
Well, first I had to choose where to start.
I decided to start with the most treasured part of my wardrobe…my denim. With that decision affirmed, I proceeded to climb over shoes and other various piles of stuff in order to reach my toppling piles of denim (this is the moment when I should have begun to consider the ‘cease and desist all shopping’ scenario, but sadly my only thought was where would I put the PRVCY jeans currently on my wish list).
So, there I was, ready…eager…motivated… and totally stumped. All of a sudden the various routes to organizing and categorizing my precious collection seemed endless – do I sort by Cuts? Fit? Wash? Alphabetical by designer? Frequency of wear? Bottom width? Rise? Lengths? Hung or folded? At that moment, I decided to do what any intelligent wife/mom/daughter would do… ask a friend.. And since my fellow DD readers, writers and proprietor, of course, are some of the most creative and knowledgeable people on the subject of denim (and other things to be sure!) I determined that this was the place to post my cry for help!
So tell me, how do you organize your denim? Share your ideas with me. And please, be quick about it because my dresses are patiently waiting to be rescued from a blazers burrito – and you know how snippy they can be!!!
