the business of closeting

Both sadly and gladly, I haven't been getting my shop on lately. Gladly because I need to be saving money. And sadly because, well, isn't that obvious?

For a while now I've been saying I need to take inventory of my closet and start making a note when I am frustrated with my selection. So the nights when I'm like Ah! I just want a cute skirt to wear with this. Or ah! I just wish I had an easy dress to throw on, I should be writing it down. That way, when it comes time to shop or make my birthday list (41 days), I'll be prepared.

But, I haven't gotten around to this. Which is why right now I couldn't tell you even one thing I want to buy, but I know this fall when I'm dealing with the fact that an easy sundress is no longer acceptable, I'll be turning the closet upside-down.

However, Matchbook has me covered this month with its new closet checklist. There are a few I could do without (khaki trousers) and a few I'd like to add (about five more dresses), but overall I think they offer pretty solid closet representation.
I also think this could serve as an excellent trip pack list.
