Don’t Make These Shopping Mistakes

Shopping Mistakes
Have you made these shopping mistakes?


I  feel the need to share with you what I always tell my clients:

Do not buy multiples of the same top, dress, skirt, or pants.

It can be tempting when you think you have found the perfect fit or style, to buy a few in different colors or prints. I see this in almost every closet the first time I work with a new client.



The end result is, way too often you will have multiples of the wrong fit, style, and color.

As your body changes, what was once your ‘GoTo’ look, is no longer looking as good as it used to.

Think about how much money you may have wasted when you discover that you got caught up in a very common situation:

Replicationitis. Def. The inability to realize that you keep buying and/or wearing similar clothes over and over again.

An additional issue is that your wardrobe is very limited, and you basically look the same in every out and you most likely have BORING outfits and wardrobe options.

You won’t have a manageable closet if you keep buying what you already have, and squeeze it in along with all the multiples you no longer wear. Sound familiar?

You can’t improve or change your look by buying the same thing over and over again.

No matter what size your closet or wardrobe may be, knowing how to organize it will allow you to have more choices and peace of mind.

“I loved working with Scarlett in my closet! It was fun and enlightening. Scarlett spotted some things that I have never worn and showed me how great they look when matched with the right accessories. She made choices that would never occur to me, and they were great! She showed which colors and cuts look best on me and suggested a few items needed to fill the gaps in my wardrobe. She employs a “less is more” strategy, so you will end up paring down rather than expanding what you own. If you’re looking for a way to get a new wardrobe by reassessing what you already own with a fresh, stylish eye, invite Scarlett into your closet.You will be very pleased.”

I’m Weak, As I Love Buying Shoes and Handbags

shoes and handbags I have a problem, but I am not ashamed; I love shoes and handbags…a lot. I find that they are a simple and quick way to update an outfit in a matter of minutes. Casual to dressy, classic to whimsical, conservative to creative, you name it.

This love affair of mine means I like to buy shoes and handbags…a lot. Not out of control shopping, just taking advantage of sales for the shoes and handbags that will work with the clothes I own and replace the ones that are worn out, uncomfortable, or no longer get worn.

shoes and handbags

I  took the above four 4 pairs of sandals  out of my closet, as I no longer wear them. One pair will be donated to the local Community Center, and the other three will be consigned come next April. They can be consigned because they are in great condition and have been stored properly in my closet.  There is money to be found in your closet, or at the very least clothes that would be greatly appreciated by those who are in need.



I only bought 2 pairs of sandals that I love, are comfortable and were a great deal. My new sandals will get worn very often, and now I have extra room in my closet along with more outfits to create 

using my new shoes.

Tip: If you avoid changing handbags because it is time consuming, try using an insert like I do for my handbags.  Then  you will be able to  switch one out for another in less than 20 seconds. Take a look at this handbag organizer from The Container Store.

So what are you holding onto in your closet and WHY?
