Thoughts on The Curated Closet

Like any fashion blogger with her salt shoes, I’m a fan of Anuschka Rees’ lovely blog Into-Mind, so I got really excited when I discovered she had a book out. If you haven’t visited her blog, check it out right now. I’ll wait. The Curated Closet is pretty much her blog in book form. The layouts, the pages, the topics – everything feels just as you’d expect them to be. 

Sharing my thoughts on The Curated Closet: A Simple System for Discovering Your Personal Style and Building Your Dream Wardrobe by Anuschka Rees.

The Curated Closet: A Simple System for Discovering Your Personal Style and Building Your Dream Wardrobe is broken down into four parts: The Basics, Discover Your Personal Style, Build Your Dream Wardrobe, and The Art of Shopping. In part one, Rees suggests documenting your outfits for two weeks to help you better understand your style and wardrobe needs. Part two, is about finding inspiration and identifying your style, while part 3 is about making your dream wardrobe a reality. Finally, part four discusses quality, fit, and budget.

One of my favorite things about The Curated Closet is that it is filled with lists, charts, and pictures. I’d almost call it a well dressed woman’s fashion textbook, but that makes the book sound stuffy when it’s the exact opposite. As a fashion book fanatic, I’m sold on this fashion manual.

This book was provided by Blogging For Books in exchange for an honest review.

  1. Do you feel it delivers something new beyond her blog, or is it mostly the same content she’s shared on her blog, but just all together, rather than spread across many blog posts?

    1. I think it’s pretty much the same content from her blog, but it’s organized a little differently… and, I think the info is more convenient in book form 🙂

  2. My fashion style is pretty disjointed now. If one looked in my closet they would think I was an extreme fitness fanatic with all of the yoga pants….

  3. That’s nice! I checked Cheap Chic and I liked what I saw, so I am sure I will like The Curated Closet as well! I will check it now! Hope you have a very nice week!
