How to Cleanse Your Closet and Build a Wardrobe You Love

Happy New Year!

If you’re  like me, the beginning of the New Year has you in organizing, cleansing and decluttering mode.  Having too much “stuff” around can cause stress and crankiness, right?  Just looking at this picture (of my very own, pre-cleanse closet) makes me tense.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Imagine starting the New Year with a clean and organized closet filled only with items that fit the body you have today, work for your lifestyle and make you feel confident,  comfortable and put together.
No more opening your closet door and feeling stressed out and annoyed by how jammed packed and disorganized it is –  yet still having “nothing to wear.”
This is my closet AFTER I followed my Closet Cleanse step-by-step process.

 

I don’t pretend to be an organizing guru.  However,  I developed the B.Styled Closet Cleanse program after spending years helping other women get their wardrobes under control and filled ONLY with items they love, need and actually wear.

Over the years I’ve read books and signed up for organization challenges and programs.  However, I’ve always found that what was missing was the real nitty gritty; the detailed, step-by-step tasks to keep me focused and on-track, and not overwhelmed.

I loved the message and intent behind Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and her philosophy that every item needs to be touched, keeping only those that “spark joy”.  What has kept me from implementing her program though is the thought of spending several consecutive days pulling every single thing out at one time. I understand the benefit of this approach, but for me it was too overwhelming and became an excuse to delay getting started.  .   

My own struggle with the process is what prompted me to create the B.Styled Closet Cleanse Program.

I’ve broken the Closet Cleanse down into very clear, simple, and manageable tasks that can be accomplished in 15 minute blocks of time.  The program includes a printable checklist (and just enough bossiness;) to keep you on track.

You can choose to do several 15 minutes tasks at one time, or do them daily as your schedule permits.  The program is designed so you don’t have to live in a state of total disarray during the process.   And although I had my clothing closet in mind when I developed the cleanse, I have applied the process to other closets and areas of my home as well.

CLICK HERE for more details and to sign up.  Included in the $14.99 fee is all the info you need:

  • A (very short & limited) list of simple, inexpensive supplies
  •  Instructions for each step in the process
  • A printable step-by-step checklist

I won’t lie, the Cleanse is the hard part, but it gives you the freedom to move on to the next stage which is the FUN part…Building a wardrobe you love.

This is where the B.Styled Wardrobe Challenges come in….Once you’ve ruthlessly purged your closet and gotten rid of all the stuff you don’t wear and don’t love, you can start to rebuild your wardrobe into one you will love and makes you feel confident and comfortable.

Here are some highlights of what the B.Styled Wardrobe Challenges can do for you:

Learn to shop with a purpose and gain confidence through easy “done for you” outfit formulas. It’s about changing your relationship with your clothes and through that, your relationship with yourself.

You can finally end the cycle of always having to buy more things, but finding you still don’t have what you really need or want.

B.Styled  Wardrobe Challenges give you everything need to shop smart and look stylish. You’ll know exactly what pieces you need to build a capsule wardrobe that works for most occasions, what the current trends are and how to choose things that fit your personal style and flatter your figure.

I provide the shopping list and show you exactly how to pair up the outfits. You pick the pieces and decide the budget.  Most of our members shop their closets first.

My goal is to empower you to take risks and discover your own unique style. You’ll get all the tools you need to build a capsule wardrobe of flexible, functional pieces that you can pair up in multiple ways.

If you’re ready to rebuild your wardrobe and try new styles outside of your comfort zone, I’d love to have you join us.  The Winter Challenge is going on now.  We’ve done one “round” of 21 outfits but because winter is really just kicking in now (and we’re having so much fun) we ‘re starting the cycle over again so you can jump in anytime!  

 

 

** For a Limited time you can join the B.Styled Winter Essentials Challenge, and get the CLOSET CLEANSE PROGRAM for FREE.   Click HERE for more info and to sign up!

I look forward to helping you B.Cleansed and B.Styled in 2017!

Cheers!

B.Styled’s Accessory Formulas

I hate math….yet, I love formulas.  Not those awful math formulas, but instead the kind that tells you, step-by-step, exactly what to doIn fact, I need a formula for making my family dinner every night, so if you have one of those, please share.

What I do have though, are formulas for choosing accessories for any given outfit.  Most of them use the Rule of Three…stick to no more than 3 accessories and only ONE “statement” piece.

Here are some of my favorite formulas, and I’ll be adding to the list, so check back here for more.

This first formula marks the change to SPRING and SUMMER!  Most of the year I wear skinny hoops  in silver or gold almost daily.  When the weather gets warmer, I love to add some color with earrings.  This pair of aqua stones are simple enough that I  wear them all the time just as I would my hoops.  The light aqua color “goes with” just about all my favorite spring colors – bright yellow/green, fuchsia, coral, navy, etc.   If you prefer smaller stud earrings, try a simple pair like these in a fun color for a change of pace.  And don’t feel like you need to “match” your earrings with your top or scarf….Instead, try pairing two unexpected yet complementary solid colors for a fresh new look.
