Closet Chaos

No, not my closet, you see I don't even have a closet, I have a pile of sweatshirts on the floor of my room, a rod in the storage room to hang a few skirts and Handsome Hubby's plether of button down shirts. Nope, its not my closet chaos I speak of (blog of?), its my daughter's closet, and I really should not complain, all 4 girls share one closet, its not a huge closet, its not a tiny closet, (they shouldn't complain, at least they HAVE a closet!) but this closet is jam packed! Who needs 15 jackets? Or how about 30 skirts?? And the number of puffy vests, in all different colors to match that one shirt that goes with "my favorite jeans!" And boots, oh my for the boots these girls own... brown ~ at least 8 pairs, black (but these I call "hooker heels" and they aren't allowed to wear them anywhere, which begs the question, "why do we still have them in the house??" they only add to the closet chaos. sorry, rambling!), pirate boots, jammie boots (? cuz they look really really cute with jammie pants, why would you need boots that look really cute with jammies?? Do you wear these boots to bed?!? rambling again) dress shoes, a zillion flip flops, btw, I HATE flip flops! They encourage dirty feet in my house, in my car, everywhere. all under the guise of "shoes". Flip flops are not shoes. they don't cover your feet, they don't protect your feet, they don't support your skeletal system ( I don't think that's the clinical phrase, but you know what I mean). Not to mention the tennis shoes, all colors under the rainbow to go with different outfits. And the actual snow boots, not to be confused with the fashionable boots, of course they have them too. Jeans, pants, shorts, sweatshirts, blouses (sorry, I call them blouses, my girls have no clue what blouses are, they call them "dress shirts" informal dress shirts?) Of course they all have dresses too... lots and lots of dresses and cute little sweaters that go with that certain little dress, and matching heels finish up the look. And the scarves, pretty scarves in all different colors. And bags and purses and backpacks (plural. "Mom, the white with orange flowers messenger bag does NOT go with my pink puffy vest! *rolling of the eyes*).
**Now, for the sake of full disclosure, we (they) buy these clothes at GW, or they are given them, usually for babysitting 3 adorable little boys that have a mom with amazing clothes ;) and when they shop at GW its on Tuesdays, Tag Sale Tuesdays, when they buy items for $1.50... so don't think I encourage mindless spending of hard earned money on a $50 pair of boots or a $40 pair of jeans. We don't do that kind of thing.
I think it may be time to take control of the closet chaos... but its so much easier to shut the door and leave it for another day, say.... when they move out???

I agree, wait till they move out or Belle out grows them. :D It is really a lot of fun and really harmless, so let them be fashioneastas and enjoy the show!
