Practical Princess Perfect Wardrobe

Sunday, May 24, 2015

The season has changed already long ago, but my closet is still full of winter pieces... Perhaps it's better to sit down, have a cup of coffee and make a plan. A while ago I bought the Finnish version of Elika Gibbs' book Practical Princess Perfect Wardrobe (Unelmien vaatehuone). She's a real organizational whizz and wardrobe expert. Kate Moss has said: "Elika is a practical genious..."

Some practical tips to start with:
Go trough your wardrobe and make six piles
  • for everyday use
  • the precious ones
  • "maybe" pile
  • no-nos
  • needs washing, ironing, repairing
  • for another season
When your clothes are hung and organized you are able to see, at a glance, what you have, and crucially don't have. 

Get rid of a piece, if
  • the details of it are not your style
  • it doesn't fit to your body shape
  • the colour is unflattering for your complex or hair colour
  • it just doesn't feel right
Save it, if
  • it's a classic and made of good material
  • it fits to you perfectly
  • the colour is right for you
  • the shape and material are currently in fashion

The more organized one is, the easier one's life becomes!

This is just something to start with. I will definitely come back to this book asap!

ps. there's no coffee in my cup - it's chaga mushroom drink...


  1. Ja minä niin tarvitsen tuon kirjan - vaikka vaatekaappien karsiminen onkin alkanut, tuntuu urakka edelleenkin mahdottomalta;)

    1. Älä muuta sano - tuntuu, että aina vaan löytyy kaapin perältä vaikka mitä...
