We’re all experiencing a little extra time at home these days. Since spring is officially here, let’s plan some spring cleaning this week - starting with your closet!

Style On A Shoestring by Andy Paige

My book, "Style On A Shoestring" (McGraw-Hill, available on Amazon), offers a thoughtful and complete guide to cleaning out and organizing your closet. Basically, I believe in asking yourself a few questions regarding each item in your wardrobe, and creating 4 piles when sorting through your garments:

DONATE, RE-CREATE, CONTEMPLATE & FITS ME GREAT!

As you assess each item in your closet, ask yourself, does this item speak to who I am now? Does this send the message I want to send and reflect the best of me? Is this what I want to say to the world?

Based on the answer, choose one of the four piles for each item.

  • Your DONATE pile will be all of those garments that you’re done with. They don’t represent who you are anymore, they don’t speak to your style, or they don’t fit, AND they can still be useful for others (don't put things here that are worn out and should be thrown away - just throw them away). You can donate them for a tax credit or resell them online or at a consignment shop.
  • Your RECREATE pile will be those garments that need a SIMPLE alteration to be brought back to life. A hem, dart, shortened strap, or adjusted waist band can all be accomplished with a little time or around $20 bucks. If an alteration is priced at more than $20, you should think of donating it.  The cost of the alteration shouldn't exceed the cost of replacing the garment.

This is an important group of clothes. You’ve already invested in these items, and if they can be salvaged and given a useful life, it’s good to try. Use your best judgement.

  • The CONTEMPLATE pile are those garments that have sentimental meaning, things you’d like to be able to fit back in to one day, or items of greater value. These garments can be put at one end of your closet and revisited every 6 months or so.
  • The FITS ME GREAT pile is your actual wardrobe. These are the items that you like, that work with your figure, make you feel confident, and fit you perfectly. They reflect who you are and send a confident message to the world. Statistically, this is probably less than half of the clothes hanging in your closet right now.

Once you’ve gone through your wardrobe, you can apply the same questions and create the same piles for your shoes, accessories and purses. These few hours will revolutionize the way you approach each day and get dressed.  

You can do this!

FAQ

What is the GirlyGoGarter® and how does it work?

The GirlyGoGarter® is a smart, sexy innovation in functional lingerie, made of two-way stretch microfiber with latex-free patented GentleFlex™ grippers, invented and developed by celebrity beauty & style expert Andy Paige. It was more than 5 years in the making and involves at least 19 patents (we weren't kidding about the innovation part)! For more about the GirlyGoGarter®, how it works, what you can carry in it, and who it's designed for, visit the About page. For more about Andy Paige, check out her bio.

What's my size?

The GirlyGoGarter® is designed to fit women's sizes 0-24. Our sizing is based on USA standard ladies' pants sizes. So, if you wear a size 10 in dress pants, you would wear a size M GirlyGoGarter®.  If you want to wear your garter higher on your thigh, you may need a larger size than if you choose to wear your garter closer to your knee.

***If you're unsure about your size, go smaller, as our garters stretch up to 4 inches.***

The garter should fit snugly! The sizing chart goes like this:

GirlyGoGarter® Size USA Ladies' Pants Size ~ Length
Small 0 - 8 14" / stretches to 23" (35 cm / 58 cm)
Medium 8 - 16 16" / stretches to 25" (40 cm / 63 cm)
Large 16 - 24 22" / stretches to 33" ( 55 cm / 83 cm)

How do I wear it so it doesn't slip down?

1. Put the GirlyGoGarter® on your clean, lotion-free, bare thigh (or over fishnet hosiery).

2. Stretch the garter tight around your thigh and secure it with the Velcro at the back of your leg.

3. Load your necessities in the easy-access or lock-flap pockets.

DON'T DO THIS:

X Don't try to wear the GirlyGoGarter® over nylons, pantyhose or pants - it won't stay put unless it's gripping your bare skin.

X Don't put lotion on your leg before putting on the GirlyGoGarter®.  Anything between the grippers and your clean, bare leg will cause the garter to slip down.

X Don't close the Velcro and then pull the GirlyGoGarter® up your leg like a stocking. It won't stay up unless you stretch the grippers around your thigh AND THEN attach the Velcro tightly.

How do I take care of it?

Lotions or oils on your skin can reduce the "stickiness" of our patented GentleFlex™ grippers. Simply wipe grippers with a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol to return them to their original grip.

GirlyGoGarters® can be hand-washed or put in the washing machine on the delicate cycle. GlitzyGoGarters® must ONLY be hand-washed - never put in the washing machine. Also, NEVER put any of our garters in the dryer, as this will ruin the patented grippers.

As with any beaded garment, beads may occasionally fall off the GlitzyGoGarter® from time to time with regular wear.  This is normal and not preventable, though careful care and hand-washing will minimize the loss.
