I'm getting ready for an event this weekend (pics to come!) and did a trial run of my outfit tonight. It's nothing fancy, but I wanted to make sure I had everything organized. I try to do this for any special event, especially if I need costume pieces that might be buried deep in my closet or garage. Then as I take them off I hang all the garments together and put accessories in a shoebox so that they're ready to go. Don't forget hair accessories and makeup!
Anal, yes. But it makes getting ready for an event SO much nicer when you don't have to spend 10 minutes digging for the right tights or gloves, or forget to wear a special piece of jewelry.
