Turning My Closet into My Personal Boutique! Part One

Looking for a new style? Don't know what to wear to your next big event?
Look no further you can Do more with less and shop your closet!

Lets start by style organizing our wardrobe. Let's make our closets our very own "Boutique." Every item in our closet needs to be evaluated and streamlined to reflect our style goals. Items that don't make the cut must be donated to our favorite charity.
Step One: Sorting our STUFF "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly"
                 The Good - These are modest clothes, shoes, accessories, and jewelry that fit us well and compliment us according to our body-type, skin-tone and above all our godly character. These also must coordinate with each other, so we will need less STUFF.
                 The Bad - These are items that do not fit, "if we lose weight clothes", clutter our "Boutique" there is no space allocated for such STUFF.
                 The Ugly - Honey, if we haven't worn it in the past three years...IT MUST BE UGLY!!

To save time and money: Let us commit in finding/keeping modest clothing and makeup that looks great on us in less time. We will actually wear it. Buy clothing, makeup, shoes, belts, and bags that all coordinate, so we will need less. This makes getting dressed more efficient.
