FALLING IN LOVE WITH MY CLOSET AGAIN

If you’re a fashionista, like me, you are probably in the same exact situation I’m in right now (and every time I buy new clothes). My closet is always packed with my favorite garments of the moment and even clothes I haven’t worn in months. Not only is my shopping addiction and this blog keeping my closet packed to the brim, but I also share the closet space with my fashionisto boyfriend—who has his favorite clothes of the moment AND clothes he hasn’t worn in five years packed into the closet as well.

So what’s a girl to do?

The monthly purge
The good news is that I’m not that much of a hoarder. But these are clothes we are talking about parting ways with, and I’m not good with goodbyes in that sense. Every month, I place the clothes I think I’m ready to get rid of in a box and put it behind my bedroom door for two weeks. If I don’t think about any of the clothes or pull anything from the box during that time, then I part ways with them.

Keeping inventory
Do you ever forget about the clothes that are shoved all the way in the back of your closet? Yeah, me too. And sometimes these clothes still have tags on them (UGH). So on the days where I feel like I have nothing to wear, I will start at the back of my closet to find those hidden gems.

But there has to be an easier way to store my clothes while being able to go through them seamlessly without making a mess. What I really need is a virtual closet where I can thumb through my on-and off-season clothes, have them dry cleaned, put in storage, or sell or donate them. And I think I may have found the perfect way to achieve this.

The digital closet of my dreams
Enter Armoire, a Chicago-based clothing storage service that keeps your off-season clothes in a cedar lined space and picks up and delivers your clothes within 24 hours of your request. Best of all, Armoire frees up some closet space so you can keep being the trend-obsessed fashionista that you are! I just signed up and created my profile on Armoire, and I am highly anticipating the app’s launch in Spring 2017. I was pretty impressed with Armoire’s $35-$65 per month pricing plans (also detailed below) since a dingy and dusty storage unit in Chicago averages around more than $60 a month—and that doesn’t include dry cleaning. Another thing I’m looking forward to on the Armoire app is being able to consign clothes I no longer wish to keep, which saves me from having to drag heavy bags of garments to the nearest consignment or thrift store in the city. If you aren’t in Chicago, no worries, Armoire has plans to expand to New York City, Washington D.C., and other metropolitan areas, too.

I just reserved my spot for the app's initial launch. To reserve yours and to score an exclusive package upgrade for free, send an email to macon@getmyarmoire.com.
