Celebrities have enviable closets that are filled with gowns, cocktail dresses, hundreds of shoes, and designer bags, but what we don't know is that these closets eventually get stuffed, and like most of us, celebs also need to declutter.
This happened to Iza Calzado, who recently decided to purge her wardrobe in time for her 36th birthday last August 12. In an Instagram post, the actress shares, "Right before my birthday, I told myself that I wanted to declutter and let go of the things that I no longer need to make way for the abundant blessings from God."
The actress posted before-and-after photos of her walk-in-closet, with the "before" photo showing shelves stuffed with bags, and a second clothing rack set out to accommodate her excess clothing. The "after" photo shows a more streamlined closet, with hats and neatly folded shirts on the shelves and a trimmed-down wardrobe of dresses perfectly organized by type and color.
To do this, Iza asked help from organizer Mica Santayana. Iza continues in her post, "The Universe was quick to respond by sending me the beautiful angel, Mica Santayana, of @tidilyeverafter who helped me start my purging by working on my closet with me."
"This is just phase one and I already feel lighter and definitely more organized thanks to Mica [for] personally teaching me and my staff at home how to make smarter and tidier decisions for our home and perhaps even in life! Salamat, Mica!"
Like a Filipina Marie Kondo, Mica visits her clients' homes and not only declutters the areas but also teaches them how to maintain it. She uses her decluttering techniques on her own home and has some fantastic organizing and purging tips on her Instagram account, such as the "Five Things" tip: "Today, I want you to have a look at your closet and pick out five things you know you can live without. It will only take a minute, but the effects will last forever!"
While we wait for an updated closet tour from Iza, here's a sneak peek of her shoe collection:
