It looms before me, overwhelming me with its abundance, too large to tackle. Hiding behind its doors is my shameful secret: My closet is an overstuffed, overwrought and overburdened mess. I can barely look at it. My closet needs a makeover. It’s in desperate need of help – more help than I can give it.
So, I call my friend Susan Sommers, image consultant, author and stylist extraordinaire. Closet therapist. Making people look good is Susan’s mission in life. “You need a small core of clothes that you can do a lot with,” she’s fond of saying.
If only it were that simple. That’s been my mission – but I’m running out of room in my closet – and somehow all I seem to accomplish is to buy even more.
