WELCOME BACK TO…

"In the Closet with Cini & Marie"
Fun closet edits for a cause!

In this episode of "In the Closet," we're featuring some fab donations from Wag supporter Marie Green, and her daughter Vanessa. We’re excited to feature this mother-daughter duo who share a passion for both fashion and charity.

Marie is a close friend of our founder, Cini Robb. These two have known each other for many years and bonded over their faith and love of fashion. Marie is not only a fashionista, but also an entrepreneur who owns two Dry Bar locations in La Jolla, CA. In her previous life, she spent many years working as a professional stylist and has always been a source of inspiration to her friends when it comes to fashion.

Since Marie spent years styling celebs, we thought the least we could do is get some basic organization tips while we were in her closet! 

Marie’s Tips for a Fit & Fab Closet

1
Edit your Closet Every 6 Months

It may sound like a lot, but Marie advises people to go through their closets twice a year. If you haven't worn or used an item since your last edit, consider donating it. Wag N' Purr Shop loves donations of handbags, jewelry & accessories. Our beneficiary, the FACE Foundation, takes donations of clothing and other items through their Closets for a Cause program.

When Editing Your Closet, Make 4 Piles

#1 TAILOR / REPAIR

We all know what it's like when we push something to the back of the closet because it needs repair or altering. Make your pile, and then set a date on the calendar to take those items in the be hemmed, altered, repaired, professionally cleaned, or whatever is needed. Some of these items may again be some of your favorites!

#2 DONATE

Whether you purchased something on impulse and it never really looked or fit right, or your own personal style has changed, sometimes it's just time to let go of an item. Some items can be donated to a quality resale boutique (hint hint), and others may need to be given to a place like Goodwill, Salvation Army, or a women's shelter. No matter what, please do not add to the landfill by tossing it in the trash.

#3 STORE

Here in San Diego, we don't exactly have four distinct seasons, but still: summer is summer, and winter is winter! A closet that has room to breathe and is not jam-packed is a happy closet. In the summer, make space in drawers and on hangers by removing items that will clearly not be worn until the crisp air of the fall season arrives. The logic applies to your summer items when the temperatures have dropped.

#4 KEEP

These are your current "go-to" items. These kind of edits make is so much easier to get dressed for any kind of outing—and much more fun!

Dark to Light

Marie keeps darker colored clothing towards the front and light in the back because it's easier to see. What a simple but useful tip!!
