Nothing to eat or wear?
Have you ever come home from the grocery store with $75 worth of food and yet you feel you have nothing to make or eat? You have chips but no dip, entrée but not app, missing ingredients to a signature dish? It’s much like a full closet and nothing to wear! We all experience this […]

Why I no longer shop H&M
Don’t get me wrong, a few years ago I loved me some H&M, Zara and Beacon’s Closet. I was living in Williamsburg Brooklyn, the budding hipster capital and experimenting a lot with my look at  that time. I was also working on set as a fashion stylist so proving that I was creative in my […]

Closet Clarity
Why did I create Closet Clarity? They say outer clutter is a reflection of inner clutter and I’ve always struggled with having a bursting closet and not enough space.

I’ve always wanted prettier, more perfect closets but haven’t invested the time or money. I’ve aspired to have my closet look […]
