How do the Italians do it?


     Italian women are world renowned for their sense of fashion, their eyes for style and their ability to walk in high heels.  What’s even more impressive, is they have teeny, tiny little closets.  

     What??? How is that possible?  The first time I was in Italy I was given the privilege of seeing my cousin’s closet in Rome.  It was built into the wall, sleek, and impossibly tiny.  Living in La Citta Eterna means that there are centuries of Roman architecture and art, masses of humanity, and Not A Lot Of Space.  I suppose it’s a trade off….

     The secret is in selection.  Instead of having ten pairs of black trousers, she had one.  Tailored, lined, perfect.  It probably cost a fortune, but just up front.  When I consider how many not quite right pairs of black trousers I have purchased, I’ve probably spent more than she had.  Imagine only having a tiny closet of clothes that fit, match one another, and make you feel beautiful.
