Remember that scene from Clueless where Cher goes to her closet to get dressed and instead of pulling hangers of clothing out from her closet, she sits at a 1995 Apple and clicks through a computer program to select her outfit for the day? It’s like ancient digital paperdolls, which I’m 100% here for. If you are too young to recall this epic scene…enjoy it here!
Because of this timeless trove of inspiration, I’ve decided to put my easily accessed technology (see: iPhone) to work for my sartorial needs.
I love talking about fashion/style hacks and hope you find them helpful. Here’s what I did in three easy steps:
1. When inspiration strikes, be it several “looks” at once or just a random idea for what could work (orrrr using Pinterest as a springboard of outfit ideas), go ahead and pull the clothing pieces out and lay them on a flat, well-lit surface area.
2. Take a birds-eye-view photo with your phone. (I told you it was easy.)
3. If you want to get crazy, you can edit the pic for better/more accurate colors. Now save them in a photo file (right there on your phone) called “Outfit Ideas” or “Closet” or “Fashion Maven” or whatever makes sense to your brain.
And that’s it. Presto- you have a quick way to reference outfit ideas (from your own closet!) for when you feel stuck or are too tired to pull it all together on the fly.
We may not live in the lap of mid-90’s SoCal luxury a la Cher Horowitz, but we can make the most of the wardrobe we have and pretend to all be supermodels 😉
