What’s the rule about things in your wardrobe? I think it’s something about rotating clothes out if you haven’t worn them in over a year. If I did that, my closet would be more than half empty. I always worry about giving a particular item away and then missing it soon after – even though that’s never happened.
My closet is a mess. There are shoes I’ve never worn and jackets from the 80′s (don’t tell anyone) with a thick layer of dust on them. I try to keep jeans and sweaters in neat piles but with little success. Since my husband’s closet is somewhat color-coded, I try to follow that example but he probably wonders if I’m color blind!
Because I work on television, I have a lot of brightly-colored clothing. Years of advice from wardrobe consultants have filled my closet with a lot of reds, blues and jewel tones. No, we do not have people at Fox Chicago who tell us what to wear.
I have far more tops than bottoms. Before we switched to an HD set, we used to wear jeans pretty often. Some people even wore shorts during the summer. We can’t do that anymore since we have new camera positions in the studio allowing viewers to see more of what we’re wearing.
Clearly, I need to weed out things that are outdated and merely taking up space. But what if they come back into fashion? Yeah, I’ll be ready when those skinny models hit the runways in Paris in dusty jackets!
