How Many Leggings Should You Have?

When is it too much? Is it too much when you have a pair for every day of the week? Or is it when every photo of you depicts you wearing a pair of legging? Or is it when your sister opens your drawers and your closet, turn to you, and says, “Are leggings going to be the new currency after the zombie apocalypse?” When can you say that you have enough leggings? Do you need a personal shopper for leggings and wardrobe basics?   It seems whenever I want to wear mine, I can’t find them because they are in the hamper.

It feels so good to have […]

Hold on—it is not what you think. But we all know what it is. You see a celebrity’s closet in a magazine spread or you see the closet of one of the housewives of Beverly Hills and your pupils dilate, your heart starts racing, and your brain is flooded with serotonin. You can’t help but stare wide-eyed. Look at the array of colors and the wall devoted just to shoes. Is that a jewelry vault in the corner? And did that diva Mariah Carey say that she just has a closet devoted to her lingerie? You can’t help but obsess.   The Haves and Have-Nots Never has the gap between the haves and have-nots seemed wider. Later that day, you […]
