The 5 Essential Pieces in your Closet

The 5 Essential Pieces in your Closet

When I decided to write this post, I really started thinking about the closet.  Today our closets can be whole rooms.  As a matter of history, Closets were not originally invented for clothing.  Since people did not even have bedrooms in some cases, the Closet was a room where people went to be alone and have their most precious possessions.

In Europe as houses grew bigger and there were bedrooms for everyone, closets disappeared as a place for privacy.  Most people did not have many pieces of clothing so many bedrooms did not have a closet.  If they did they were quite small.  I live in a house that was built in the 1800's and the closets that were in the house were so shallow we just added shelving instead of trying to use it as a closet.

So, I thought it would be a good place to start to think about what if you only had that narrow closet.  What pieces would I choose.  That is why I had originally created SP Essentials.  Even though the essentials have grown over the years, what 5 pieces would give me the most out of my wardrobe.   

Let start with the Foundation.  The Jet Skirt and Roxie Jacket.

The Jet can be worn as a skirt or a dress, the jacket as a Jacket or a wrap top. The Lea Tube is also an essential part of your basics and since it takes up no room in your closet we will not count that in the 5 but just think of all the options.  It is a belt, It is a top, It is a neck scarf.  

The Catherine Dress is a good foundation piece in your wardrobe.  Mixing it with the Roxie Jacket for Office to Dinner or over the Jet Skirt for a longer look are just a few ways you can style it.

With these few items there are at least 14 days of outfits. You will look put together and timeless.  Who needs a big closet!

5 Things You Should Never Pour Down Your Drain

by Expert Village Media Technologies Collaborator October 23, 2017

We think of our sink like a magical portal. We pour things down the drain, and they disappear, reducing the time we need to clean. Rarely do we think about what happens to the things we put down the drain – out of sight and out of mind.
