But, every now and then, I look inside my walk-in closet and I’m stuck! I view my hanging sections, shelves and shoe cubbies and feel like wearing something new.
So, when I want to borrow something I give my best friend a call. I tell her what the occasion is and see if she has any suggestions. She always does and we make a date to meet in her closet!
I know her closet like the back of my hand. Not only because she is my best friend, but also because I designed and organized it for her. She has over 100 pair of shoes displayed on Lucite slanted shoe shelves and over 100 handbags organized by designer between clip on Lucite dividers. Her hanging is color coordinated and her costume jewelry is displayed inside numerous velvet lined pull out trays. Her closet is gorgeous and looks like you are inside an upscale boutique with a crystal chandelier.
It’s so spacious we would have coffee and chat in there. She’d have some garments already selected for me hanging on various valet rods around the closet. She would also show me additional items from the closet that she thinks would be perfect for me for that particular event. We’d laugh, try on different things, look in the mirror, and we have fun!
The shopping day in her closet is always a success. I never leave empty handed and always feel great after we spend the day together. She has been my closest and dearest friend for over 20 years. I intend on keeping her as my best friend!
