Can't find anything to wear?

I often find myself going through my closet and saying to myself, "I have nothing to wear!" And believe me. I have plenty to wear.  I know I have a LOT of clothes.  However, sometimes I need help putting things together. 

Each season I buy a few magazine showcasing the latest trends and go through them.  When I come across an outfit I like on a page, I tear it out and then insert it into a plastic sheet protector and add it to a three ring binder.  Whenever I don't think I have anything to wear, I pull out my 3 ring binder of ideas and go through my closet.  If you don't have exactly the same items, most times you can get pretty close or just use the idea but choose different colors.

I also use this to make a list of items that I would like to purchase.  Often times you don't need a whole new wardrobe to update your look, you just need a few accessories. 

While I go through my idea book, I go through my closet and put the outfits together and then hang them together in my closet.  Next time I am going somewhere that I want to wear one of my outfits, it is all there and I don't even have to think about it. 

If you don't subscribe to magazines, you can copy and paste images of outfits from your favorite websites and paste them into a word document and then print the pages out and add them to your idea book. 

Here are a few sites I use to get the latest outfit ideas to add to my book:

I love that you have an organized fashion sense in a binder, I've never heard of that before. Call me old fashion, I guess!

I have another post that I am going to put up too about other ways I use 3 ring binders to organize things from Magazines. Stay Tuned! I could put a link to your site too!
