I don’t like to think of myself as a forgetful person. It’s more that my days are so jam-packed with things to do that sometimes one or two of those things slip through the cracks. How an entire vacation to Arizona (for a wedding, I might add) slipped through, I have no idea. I guess some of those cracks are more like chasms.
This recent calendar mishap left me with just two days to pack and little to no spare time in which to actually put things into a suitcase, let alone put together something nice for the rehearsal dinner, wedding and morning-after breakfast. I started to make a packing list with the Notes app on my phone, but writing things like “cute outfit for wedding” wasn’t exactly going to save me time once I got home to rifle through my closet. This is where Finery came in to save the day.
Finery is a comprehensive digital guide to your very own closet. You can think of it as a modern-day Clueless closet you can fit in your pocket (at least, as a Cher Horowitz wannabe, that’s my favorite way to describe it). The app keeps track of everything you’ve purchased over the past ten years, including shoes, jewelry and even that vintage dress you bought off Poshmark, making it incredibly easy to see stuff you own all at once. It also means that I didn’t even have to leave my desk at work in order to start packing for my five-day adventure.
