Clueless - a movie about closets & shopping

As I was searching for closet photos to upload to Facebook last week, I happened to notice some photos of the amazing closet maintained by Cher Horowitz in the 1995 movie, Clueless.


Cher Horowitz, played by Alicia Silverstone is a good-natured but superficial girl who is attractive, popular, and extremely wealthy. At a few months shy of sixteen, she has risen to the top of the high school social scene and is happy and self-assured in her insular, fashion-obsessed world. She lives in a Beverly Hills mansion with her father.

But before we get to the closet, here are some snaps to take us back to 1995...

Cher of a one woman shopping spree in Beverley Hills during the movie when she is feeling down.

WARNING: Never go shopping when you are down - whatever you buy is likely to be a mistake...aka: What was I thinking?

Check out the 1995 fashion....

That's Brittany Murphy on the left (above)....

Cher trying to fix up her teacher....

....and here is the closet.....a revolving dry cleaner style rail....all colour coded of course.... 

She also had this program which acted as a stylist - back in 1995, they didnt really have people stylists, except for celebrities......

The program shows auto selections & allows her to manually select items.

The program then tells her if what she selected was eeww..."mismatch"....


In 2012, your program can be an Apple Dress Assistant!

It allows you to catalog your entire wardrobe on your laptop & (in theory), never spend hours dressing, undressing, and redressing again. 

You can see what matches, what doesn’t, and what plain looks good in seconds with this fun virtual wardrobe library before you even set foot into your closet!

WARNING: This app is not a substitute for a full length mirror in good natural light.

Further, you still need to maintain your wardrobe so that everything looks as good in real life as it does on the app.

My invitation to you:

I'd love to see photos of your closet or dressing table or any of your storage ideas.

Either because they are beautifully organised or because they are in need of help - you'd be surprised at what ideas other people have to make things better.

Feel free to post on the Style into Action Facebook wall.
