A few years ago it was described to me how an Italian woman builds a wardrobe. It is a careful selection of high quality, well made items (often made in Italy) which flatter their own body type. The pieces are classic enough to last decades with enough flair to be special. Each garment is an investment.
Whether that rings true to the Italians in the group or not, I love the sentiment. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a closet with less, but better. Wouldn't it be great if it were all organized and easy to find in your closet. I was reminded of this while reading Miss Cliche's blog the other day and the entry titled "Maximize your closet space".
It was inspiring. So was the way she managed to get rid of 40% of her belongings!
