Stitch Fix SF

As many of you must know by now – I am a BIG fan of Stitch Fix! Stitch Fix is a personalized fashion experience, a expert stylist hand picks and ships five clothing items to your home, including accessories, based on a style file profile that is defined by your individual taste, budget and lifestyle. All in 5 easy steps: 1. Fill out your  Stitch Fix Style Profile; 2. Pick the date you’d like to receive your Stitch Fix shipment; 3. Try all of the pieces in the comfort of your home; 4. Buy what you like and return the rest; 5. Tell Stitch Fix what you think about the items you were sent. Personally, with such an on-the-go lifestyle it is sometimes very hard for me to go to the mall and shop. Stitch Fix has become a great resource when I am the swamped with consultations and organizing sessions, but know I will have events or presentations in the near future. My very favorite part of the Stitch Fix experience is coming home to their box and not knowing what is inside. It’s like Christmas morning!

Because I am such a fan, you can imagine how excited I was to be invited to their headquarters in San Francisco to celebrate the expansion of their brand. Stitch Fix officially launched a petite and maternity option for their style box! Stitch Fix treated bloggers to some amazing food by Delicious Catering (it was DELICIOUS!), bubbly and great conversations about clothes and style with the Stitch Fix Team! Taylor, Monica and I had such a fun night! Continue Reading »

Get a Head Start on Your Spring Cleaning! Top Organization Tips for Your Spring Wardrobe

Kuzak's Closet Spring Closet Cleaning 2015 Inspiration

The first official day of spring is March 20th and you know what that means right? Spring cleaning of course! Time to scrub the baseboards, organize the home office and purge that closet. Hoping to make that dreaded wardrobe clean-out a little easier, today I am sharing with you my top tips for motivation along with before and after examples for inspiration!

Purge:

1. Revaluate your current wardrobe to determine items that are worn-out and or may not fit. Bag those to toss or donate. Styles and tastes also change so consider taking pieces you might be on the fence about and selling them to a local consignment store. The profits you make can fund those new designer shoes you have been eyeing! One of my top before and after moments was a life-changing wardrobe purge. Check out a Shopaholic’s Closet Makeover HERE.

2. Refurbish timeless pieces. A favorite pair of shoes can have a new life with a short trip to the cobbler. Also take the time to polish your heirloom jewels or have your designer items professionally cleaned and pressed. You would be surprised what a little TLC will do.

3. Shop for signature seasonal items. A new seasonal wardrobe does not mean shopping till you drop! Invest in a few pieces that you can mix and match. For example, for spring 2015 consider a fringe style purse, a statement floral skirt or pastel pumps. Stay tuned for some spring style fashion posts coming to the blog later this month!

Organize:

1. Once you have cleaned-out your wardrobe it is time to make a home for your pieces. First, pick a focal point for your wardrobe. For example, if you have a great compilation of shoes or purses use them as the centerpiece of your closet space. Second, display your wardrobe like a boutique. For example, invest in organization tools like velvet hangers that won’t stretch your clothes. A boutique like set-up will allow you to see all your clothes and encourage you to maximize use of all your items. See two of my favorite boutique like creations HERE and HERE. Read more about my love for Velvet Hangers HERE.

2. Pick a storage system that works based on your needs. For a small space, simple stackable shelve units are a great option. You can easily find these at stores like, my favorite go-to, The Container Store.  If you have a large walk-in or are working with a his and her space, consider a custom design. I work very close with Valet Custom Closets for many of my organization clients and they never disappoint! For a look at my Personal Closet Storage before and after solution see HERE. For a fabulous His and Her Custom Closet Storage read HERE.

3. Don’t underestimate the power of bins and labels! Measure out your space and shop for containers that fit the space. Bins help store loose items like scarves, jewelery and seasonal pieces like sweaters. By using bins for these items they will not only be more accessible, but protected from snags and dust as well. Bins can also work for cataloging large shoe collections, which is particularly helpful when switching out shoes from season to season. See how bins and labels transformed a small Jewelry Closet HERE. Follow my step by step Shoe Bin Storage tutorial HERE.

Kuzak’s Closet Month in Review: February

Mar 2, 2015

Whew! I survived February! It was a wonderful month and we were able to jam in a TON of great projects over the 28 days. I’ve had a huge influx of projects land on the calendar from families looking to liquidate their homes before the spring real estate season and families hoping to organize their homes in anticipation of spring cleaning and as a follow-up to their new year’s resolutions.

I’m kicking off today’s post with this fun photo of the Kuzak’s Closet gang taken over the weekend.  Man we have so much fun together! When I look at this picture I see individuals that are a pure joy to be around and work with. Going left to right…Christopher, Sarah, Jennalynn, Taylor, Me, Billy, Hope, Chris, and Ese.  We are just missing Monica, Sutzi, and Yovan (we took this after work on Saturday and they weren’t with us).
