Shop Your Closet
THE ULTIMATE GUIDE
to Organizing Your Closet with Style
By Melanie Charlton
Shop Your Closet. What does this term mean exactly? Well, think of a store where everything is neatly stacked, easy to reach and well lit. Pants are with pants, sweaters are with sweaters. Everything’s in good condition and appropriate to season. You closet can look like that store so you can go shopping there with the help of Melanie Charlton in SHOP YOUR CLOSET: The Ultimate Guide to Organizing Your Closet with Style (Collins; April 2008; Paperback Original, $19.95; ISBN: 978-0-06-134381-0).
SHOP YOUR CLOSET is really about saving you time and making you look good. How many times have you grabbed pants from the closet only to notice a hanger fold at the knees, or searched for a scarf, only to find it shoved to the back and wrinkled on the closet floor? The book tells you the right hangers to use (there are SO many, by the way) so that your clothes never have wrinkles, and also how to store your accessories so they’re ready to grab in a jiffy, among many other invaluable closet tips.

Melanie explains how to pare down your wardrobe, how to choose the essential items that are just right for your lifestyle, how to rework your closet logistically, how to store your clothes and shoes so they last longer, and provides helpful tips on keeping your closet clean and tidy. She covers all aspects of personal wardrobe maintenance, from shopping to hanging and folding to consignment and donation. SHOP YOUR CLOSET is the first book of its kind to appeal to a sophisticated crowd – addressing not only clothing but storage of all the items crucial to any budding (or seasoned) fashionista’s wardrobe, like handbags, belts, hats, shoes and accessories. There are solutions for all the different types of closets: reach-ins, walk-ins, wardrobes and armoires, punctuated by beautiful color photos and color line drawings. Also included are tips on how to pack; how to store your linens; and how to organize other areas of your home – medicine cabinet, pantry, or CD collection.
For those who have closet issues – and, let’s face it, that’s most of us – this book is a godsend.
