Every day is an outfit that needs to be planned. Each Sunday before the start of my working week I stand in front of my closet (and to my mother’s dismay, clothing rail) and pluck and pick out hanger after hanger, throwing clothing items all over my bed, climbing up on a chair to reach my shoes at the very top of my cupboard and rummage though my accessories draws to compile the perfect five outfits for my week.

I awake to my outfit for the day, hanging on my cupboard doors next to my bed. I spring out of bed with the smile on my face not because I’m one of those annoying preppy "pocket full of sunshine" kinda gals but because I get to see the image constructed in my mind come to life and I find joy in others getting to see it too.

Clothes are about more than looking good. Clothes carry memories that evoke certain emotions. I smile when I hold the dress I wore on the infamous girls night I had with my best friends, I remember the dress I wore the night I met that guy and the outfit I wore when he broke my heart. The dresses I received my degrees in and the feeling of pride and accomplishment attached. And of course there are the clothes I look at in dismay and think "what was I thinking" and blush as I relive the moment in my mind.

I’m a total girly girl, as I’m sure you would have deducted by now. Playing with make-up is a close second to playing in my closet. I believe that make-up is to a great outfit, what real cream cheese icing is to a red velvet sponge - necessary!

Being in my early 20’s, I’m still trying to figure out who I am and where I should be going and the same applies to my style and fashion prowess. I know this blog will provide me with much joy and creative relief. I’m no expert. I’m just a girl… with a genuine love for all things pretty, documenting it as I go along and would love to interact with you as I chronicle the memoirs from my closet.
