The other day while getting ready for a party I had a fashion crisis.  Nothing looked right and nothing felt right.  I must have changed my outfit at least ten times with ten variations of each one.  Plus I was in a hurry.  Shirts were flying, shoes tumbling all over the place, pants strewn about, a bloody disaster.  Finally I put something on and it just felt right, so I grabbed my wallet and phone and ran out the door before I could be tempted to change my mind again.  Later that evening when I returned home I was greeted by this…

Someone obviously had snuck into my apartment and set off a grenade in my closet.

This was just not me.  My closet is usually a well oiled feat of organization.  I mean, I even have my tank tops in order of color and shoulder width, not this crazy mess.

And my shoes… My poor shoes.  Once lined up like pretty little birds on a power line, now laying about like fallen soldiers from the latest violent video game.

Clothes deserve better than this.  Learn from my faults.  It takes a second to rehang something, but the shock of a messy closet lasts much longer.  Think of your closet as a video tape, be kind and rewind.
