Oprah Winfrey just let The Coveteur shoot her exquisite closet (which is, as expected, totally swoon-worthy and filled with Louboutins). She also shared her tips for how to do the dreaded closet clean-out, which can be really difficult for many women but is oh-so-necessary for living your #bestlifeever. Because she’s Oprah, her tip is totally an Aha Moment. I mean–would you expect anything less?

Oprah revealed to the site that the closet cleaning tip she swears by comes from style expert Adam Glassman (who also happens to be the creative director of O magazine): Don’t fantasy dress! What does that mean? Oprah explains:
“Adam [was] the one who made me realize I was holding on to clothes that were all about a dream I had for myself. I chose them for this idea I’d gotten into my head of how someone like me was supposed to live, but they had nothing to do with my actual life. And that changed me!”
What does Oprah mean by her ‘dream’? We found an old “Oprah Winfrey” show episode that further explains the tip:
“Rule #3: Don’t fantasy dress. Oprah says she bought a lot of purses she thought would be perfect for a lady who lunches, but she never had time to go to lunch. If an item fits the lifestyle you want but not the lifestyle you live, get rid of it.”
Wow! That is so interesting. Will you try her tip?
Oh, and here are some more photo of her incredible ‘work closet’ at Harpo Studios. Oprah will be auctioning off items from her closet clean on eBay March 1–don’t miss it!
And the most important tip of all–KEEP ALL THE LOUBOUTINS!:
