“I was burning up the e-mails today with a friend of mine in Paris – consulting with her about clothes, what to get rid of etc., and she hit me with the completely shocking statement: She owns 5 work outfits for hot weather, 5 work outfits for cold weather, and 5 which are “transitional”. She did point out that for some of the outfits, she will have two tops – like her black wool suit, which which she wears either a grey or a red sweater. But, all told, her ENTIRE work wardrobe fits onto 15 hangers!
Can you imagine? Or has anyone among us reached that dazzling level of focus?
Also, she says that she only owns clothes in 4 colors: black, grey, white and red – nothing else! Not even a blue tee shirt, or a pair of khakis. Even her jeans are black. I would be fascinated to know if anyone here has focused that completely…
But to balance things out, she owns mountains of jewelry, and at least 50 scarves. But I’m still reeling at her revelation of wardrobe discipline.”
