It’s Spring and we’re itching to get organized and finally get rid of the “hanger-ons” on our hangers. The problem is there are so many more fun things to do on a sunny Saturday than comb through a disorganized closet. That’s why when our very own Marketing Director Sophie, came in glowing because she was going to get “Fitzed” over the weekend, we took note. Fitz is a newly launched in-house closet organization and styling service that combines Marie Kondo’s life-changing magic with stylists who do the heavy lifting (sometimes quite literally) of getting organized. “It’s hard enough for clients to part with pieces. We help them with that, then take care of all the rest,” says Alexandra Wilkis Wilson Fitz, founder and CEO.
Here’s how it works: Two stylists arrive at your home armed with a rolling rack, and as many labels, garment bags and hangers you need. They take everything out of your closet and organize it by color and type. You have a heart-to-heart about what to keep and not. “I found the stylists helped me make better decisions about what to keep than I would have if I was on my own,” Sophie told us. Then, and here’s what makes this service a notch above the rest: Fitz stylists—not you—donate, resell, and rehab your cast-offs without you having to schlep all over town.
The cost breakdown: Two stylists, for three hours for $300 (but we can give you $50 off, see the code at the end of this post). Fitz has partnered with Linda’s Stuff, the largest reseller on Ebay, who takes both high fashion, (Gucci) and soft fashion (Zara) so that pieces in good condition can be resold. Clients can receive up to 62% on items under $1000. Fitz also can fix your leather goods, provide alterations and help you figure out a new closet layout with California Closets.
Sophie returned to work on Monday looking unburdened and breezy, wearing a chic ensemble that she had shopped right out of her own closet. So? We asked. “I feel transformed,” she said, “And, I have a whole new appreciation for garment bags.”
