A fan of Tips & Teasers just sent me a quote she came across and I really wanted to share it with you all. It’s from Andree Putnam, French designer: “There is one thing that deeply shocks me — American closets. I cannot believe one can dress well when you have so much.”
Now, if you own one of the Brenda Books, you know that I am big on managing your closet and only having things in there that are useful or beautiful to you. My personal preference is to have fewer things and wear them like crazy. But I’ll also defend the American woman who thrives on variety and needs and wants to have lots of things to choose from and has the space to hold them both in her house and in her head. I have yet to meet a woman that couldn’t exclaim: Wow! I forgot I had that!
Dressing can be such an art form. And many people need more “supplies” to create their daily art. Where do you stand on this?
