How To Organize Handbags

How To Organize Handbags In Your Closet

 

 

As the temps get cooler, you’re going to need to start finding and wearing the clothes that will keep you warm and cozy. But just because the leaves are dropping doesn’t mean our clothes and bags need to be falling too.

Here’s where I’m going with this…

Recently I looked into my closet and said to myself, enough is enough!

My bags, not just the ones under my eyes, were floppy and dingy and the clothes on my shelves looked like the back of my elbows. Wrinkled and in rough shape.

I figured out that the solution was to inject fillers, but not the ones you get at a spa or doctor’s office.

Step one: Injecting myself with determination and energy to get the job done.

No more saying one day, when I have time, or have nothing else to do, because we all know how one day often turns into no day, no way, no how.

We need to decide that one day is today and that is just what I did in just a few hours to make my closet look young and fresh again.

You can too when you follow these easy to do tips.

Inject Fillers Into Your Floppy Handbags

Step two: Dumped out all my handbags onto my bed, and yes I do have quite a few of them, so I can see which needed more plumping up.

Most of them are loosely structured and need stuffing to stop flopping around on my closet’s shelves.

The solution is to inject fillers into the bags by stuffing them with bubble wrap, paper, or even the t-shirts you’re no longer wearing.

Just like your hair, they need some body to look good.

Once filled and stuffed, the bags will stand up straight and keep their original shape.

Gee, I wish it was that easy for our shapes.

Tip: I put them back by color, and used a clear magazine holder for the little pouches, extra straps, etc. Think of it as Spanx for holding in all your loose pieces.

FYI most of my handbags are from MZ Wallace. I’m quite a fan of their bags.

All of my leggings are by Lysse. I’m a devoted fan of their bottoms too.

Nope, I’m a BIG fan.

Then I tackled the clothes and shawls/ponchos I have folded on my shelves, or you may have them in drawers.

I folded each one neatly, so that not only can I clearly see what each piece is, but also to make it easier to decide which one to wear or pack when traveling.

To me, they look so much prettier now too, and yes I’ll keep them this way.

I do have lots of leggings and jeans which I actually wear, so I organized them by color and made one pile for those in a larger size because let’s face it…we all have those days, or weeks, or months…you get what I mean.

P.S. Not sure you noticed, but nothing from above was about which clothes I had to keep or toss.

Why do you ask?

Well, that’s because I stopped having an unhealthy relationship with my clothes, many, many years ago. Knowing when and how to say bye-bye to the clothes that are doing you wrong is life-changing and you’ll have less mess in your closet too.

Check out these arm cover ups in the online newsletter, which I am a contributor to, The Three Tomatoes. They use fabulous Helen Mirren as a perfect example of how a woman maintains a high level of class and glamour, yet always has her upper arms covered.

I even made a video a couple of years ago on the subject of our, less than pageant ready, upper arms.

It’s not you – it’s your clothes…because you never learned the specifics that will allow you to transform what you choose to wear and  buy.

Stress no more, because now you can get what to wear advice that you can easily follow, while laughing as you learn in my recently published book, Stop Stressing About Dressing. Get your copy here on Amazon.

I thoroughly enjoyed this quick read on how to look and feel great every day. I’m a protege of Scarlett’s and find her tips and explanations invaluable in this slim volume. “That’s why I should wear more ruffles!” is one small reminder of why particular textures, colors and necklines flatter some and not others. Scarlett is a genius in this arena and generously shares her fashion secrets with us mere mortals. I highly recommend Stop Stressing About Dressing to all women, particularly those of us over 50.

Was It The Best Compliment?

How to get a compliment

“OMG, I LOVE your scarf.”

“Ohhhh, what a great necklace.”

“Great shoes.”

If you only get compliments on a part of an outfit, let’s say shoes, scarf or necklace, then there is room for you to improve your entire outfit.

If however, you make the shoes or accessories, then you received a compliment that turns into business for your product; bravo!!

What you deserve and should get are wow,  “you look great” comments.

Looking, and by the way feeling, great literally goes from head to toe.

Sure getting a compliment on an accessory or other part of your outfit is fantastic and feels really, really good, but don’t think that is the best than you can do or look.

How to get a compliment 

Strive for a combination of “nice shoes” with a smatter of “wow, you look great!”

YOU deserve, and can, look beautiful, confident and great, every single day!

I love showing my clients how to feel beautiful, professional and current –

no matter their size or age!

TIP: An easy, quick and mind altering way to look and feel better is by wearing a proper fitting bra. Check out these good and well, interesting bra care tips from The Three Tomatoes. However, I think the one about wearing your bra while showering is a bit, um, extreme.

Read my tips on what a proper fitting bra can do for your image and self-confidence. You don’t want to be like Drew Barrymore, who recently declared that how she looked below, is one of her top what was I thinking wardrobe disasters.
