Anna Dello Russo Dispenses Closet Cleaning Tips

Need some sartorial spring cleaning tips? Anna Dello Russo is at your beck and call.

The Vogue Nippon editor, street style star and watermelon head ornament adorer recently took to her blog to deliver a little inadvertently-hilarious-albeit-amazing wardrobe purging advice. And, remember, Anna keeps all her clothes in a separate apartment (seriously!) adjacent to her Milan home. So we consider her counsel invaluable since, you know, she's made a lifestyle out of this sort of thing.

Here are our five favorite pointers:

Store only the whole OUTFIT. In a future day, would not make sense to find a simple sweater desperately.

Organize your closet by ITEMS: coats with coats, dresses with dresses, pants with pants, skirts with skirts ... so you wouldn't buy the same thing twice!

In front of a dress to KILL or to KEEP, ask yourself: future generations 'll want to see it?

Put the SHOES away from clothes, in the appropriate boxes with Polaroids. The leather's smell doesn't match with the fabric's smell.

Don't SQUEEZE the clothes on each other. like flowers in the garden need their space!

We don't know about you, but we're constantly looking in the mirror wondering if future generations -- or even current ones -- should see the stuff we've put on.
