Last Saturday night involved pizza, playing around with Google Analytics, and reading about ostrich feet. If you are looking for a nerd party you've come to the right place.
Google Analytics is fun (fun?) because it shows me what search terms people are using to find GCOGH. It turns out that one of the top terms is "how do I incorporate closet orphans" as well as "clueless closet for computer". Since the whole point of Go Chic or Go Home is to help members make the most of what they have this little gem made my weekend (that and the ostrich feet).
I've discussed wardrobe maximization here, and the other week I shared how member Karina is using her inspiration boards to create capsule wardrobes. Here are a few more ways to make the most of what you have thanks to members Dawn, Laura, and Audrey.
Wear Your Closet
Dawn started a project and inspiration board called "Wear My Closet". She explains:
"In the spirit of making sure I wear everything I own, I've decided to set myself a challenge--every day (M-F at least) I must wear a different piece of clothing from my closet until I've gone through my entire wardrobe. I'm allowed to repeat garments (like the same pants with different tops, etc), but each day I have to wear something "new". Let's see if I can actually pull this off."
Dawn is doing an awesome job of keeping up with her challenge and you can see all of the outfits she has worn here.
While exchanging e-mails with member Laura she mentioned an inspiration board she had created called "Wear Before Spring". She explained that the goal is to remove every piece from the board as she wears them this month. Such a fantastic idea for making the most of seasonal clothing!
Last but certainly not least, check out Audrey's awesome post about using GCOGH to make the most of lonely closet pieces. She is definitely a pro when it comes to the community.
