Closet Relief: How to Get Dressed in Under a Minute

This morning I walked into my bedroom thinking "I don't give a Three Blind Mice a** what I wear today." Which inspired this experiment: how to get dressed in under a minute on a very cold morning:

  • close eyes and pull out shirt [grey, long-sleeved Abaete, beginner's luck score]
  • keep eyes closed, grope for pants [Gap navy wide legs. Why are these still in my winter closet? Too lightweight! But I stay true to course...]
  • keep eyes closed and feel around for something woolly [Uniqlo off-white cardigan, not too pilly yet]
  • open eyes and put on coat and shoes so you don't freeze or trip & fall on way to work [puffiest coat in closet and Lady Foot Locker Nike lodunks, best commuting kicks]
Why blindly pull clothes from closet? Because NY Fashion Week is over. Fretting over how to look passably OK in tents earns one a stylecation.

But back on 34th Street tomorrow where I recommend this personal favorite stop because it looks like they've been doing a little spring cleaning:


Daffy's Herald Square, for those of you who say they get overwhelmed by the many racks, you must visit as the sixth floor was looking quite inviting on Pre-Fashion Week Friday. And how much do these shoes make me want to spend more than a minute in the closet finding them an appropriate ensemble?





















All by Patrizia Pepe, who also devised this ingenious reusable bag program:




Just tie it onto your jeans & sell. Italian innovation strikes again.

I love the idea of a stylecation. I take one every time I get sick ... too bad you won't SHOW us this ravishing one-minute look you assembled. ;)

Those wedges are a glory to behold. Indeed they are.

Unfortunately, I'd end up looking like a homeless bum if I followed your lead...but just for giggles I might give it a crack.

Love this post! I think that's how I picked out my outfit this morning. I can guarantee that you looked cooler though.

WendyB said...

Ha! I must say, I dig those pink shoes.

Grayburn said...

Oh I like the new layout! It's beautiful! That's good advice and it's so true about not caring what to wear after when fashion week is over. I was wearing sweats the day after hehe! Those bubble pink ones are so cute!
