The Working Closet

Over a year ago, I stumbled upon The Working Closet on Flickr. The premise of the group is to see what others are wearing day to day, whether they work in an office or stay home.

I immediately loved this idea because there are many days that I feel like I have no inspiration and then I remember an outfit that was posted and I begin to put something together out of the items in my own closet.

Not only is the group great for ideas, but they also provide feedback/praises on your outfit, if you choose to post it. And trust me when I say the praises are a daily self esteem booster!

For example, last Friday I had come up with an outfit in my head that required one accessory that I was still trying to figure out. I decided to go for it and I told myself I could always remove said accessory if I felt uncomfortable.

Here is the outfit:

The ladies who commented had nothing but nice things to say (which in turn gave me more confidence when seeing people at work)! I wanted to reach through the computer and hug each one of them, it meant that much to me!

And this isn't a one time occurance. They have commented on many other outfits, whether they like the color, style, or want to know where they can get something like that for themselves. It is pretty great for everyone involved!

So if you are looking for a place to find both ideas and feedback on your daily outfits, check out this group. They won't dissappoint!
