I was getting very excited each time I turned the page of Anushchka Rees’ The Curated Closet. Why? Because she and I have the same philosophy when it comes to our collection of wardrobe. ‘Edit. Edit. Edit.’
How many times has it crossed our minds that we have a closet full of clothes, but we become absolutely clueless to finding the appropriate attire to wear? Unfortunately this question crosses our minds in the most inopportune time – when we have to go to party, when we have a job interview, when we have to meet someone important, and the list goes on!
But make no mistake. This book does not tell you what the wardrobe essentials are. There is no list of ‘must have’ items.
Instead, Ms. Rees gives you ideas on how to ponder over your personal style. Just exactly what is it? And can you exude this with confidence with just a few pieces of your wardrobe?
Some of the helpful hints she gives you is to put up a mood board and express what your personal style would be. Or write out what is it about your personal style that interests you? This way you can introspectively think about what really defines your own fashion expression.
So who would benefit from reading this book? Just about anyone I know! It’s a fabulous read and you’ll do well to get in on it since it is the start of the new year!
