Fashion journalist and stylist by trade; reformed hoarder by habit, Annmarie O’Connor shares how she went from impulse buyer to decluttering coach by uncovering the emotional hang-ups and unconscious habits that underpin closet happiness.
The Happy Closet is a self-help guide to balancing well-being and being well-dressed. It will help you transform your wardrobe (and your mind) into an organised and clutter-free space, ensuring you dress for the person you are today and never again utter the ill-fated words, ‘I have nothing to wear’.
But this is no ordinary decluttering mission. It’s about sifting beneath the layers of confusion and finding out what’s really driving the primal impulses that insist on colonising every square inch of space. Your closet is more than just a collection of clothes. It’s a deeply vulnerable space containing layers of old energy which can create chaos. If you feel dread and indecision each time you get dressed, then some closet therapy is in order.
In The Happy Closet you will learn how to move from collecting rails of clothes you rarely wear to shopping effectively and building a wardrobe that works for you, whatever your lifestyle. You’ll find the tools to releasing the unconscious hoarding patterns behind 9 core closet personalities: Impulse Buyer, Secret Shopper, Doomsday Prepper, Tired and Emotional, Black Widow, Split Personality, Martyr Mom, Sale Sniper and Perfect 9. Once your clothes are in order you will feel more confident, less anxious and more in control.
This is a book for anyone who has ever wanted to have more with less. Get ready. It’s time to discover how happy your closet can be.
The Happy Closet is published by Gill Books, priced at €14.99.
