In this week's issue of Wardrobe-Wise, I mentioned two books that I thought were really worthy of attention. I wanted to include links to these neat books in the E-Zine, but I wasn't able to get the HTML working correctly. So I decided I'd provide the links here at The Very Small Closet, instead.
The first book is Shop Your Closet: The Ultimate Guide to Organizing Your Closet With Style by Melanie Charlton Fascitelli. This is a simple, nicely laid-out guide to designing and organizing your closet space, full of fun, colorful illustrations, and written with pluck and wit.
From the back cover:
The Ten Commandments of Hanging
1. Thou Shalt Hang as Much as Possible in Thy Closet
2. Thou Shalt Not Hang Sweaters
3. Thou Shalt Banish Wire Hangers From Thy Closet
4. Thou Shalt Use Matching Hangers
5. Thou Shalt Use Appropriate Hangers for Appropriate Garments
6. Thou Shalt Not Kill Clothes With Plastic
7. Honor the Breathing Room of Thy Garments
8. Thou Shalt Not Hang Thy Garments With Strangers
9. Thou Shalt Color Code
10. Honor Thy Pants and Thy Sweaters
Check it out!
The second book is an interesting read titled Buying In: The Secret Dialogue Between What We Buy and Who We Are by Rob Walker. Anyone who is interested in personal branding or market trends would find this quite informative. I was particularly drawn to the information on how buyers today are increasingly relying on products as "conscious expressions of their identities."
