Every year I do a massive closet clean out, sorting through everything from clothes to jewelry, accessories, and products. I usually get rid of about half my wardrobe to start fresh for the new year. This year was a particularly big haul since my style has been evolving rapidly. Whenever I clean out my closet people always ask if they can take some of the clothes, so this year I threw a party and invited all my friends to come take what they wanted. I re-arranged my apartment to look like a boutique and we “shopped,” sipped prosecco, and enjoyed each other’s company. I bought this makeshift bar cart on Saturday and decked it out with all my favorite things for the party. How can you have a bad time with wine and macarons?I’m secretly a 70 year old woman so our playlist was full of Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, and Lena Horne. The event was a huge success. Everyone left with some goodies and I got to spend time with all the people I love. I’m looking forward to making this a yearly event.
