Would you describe your closet today as something so far from special it’s as crazy as someone from Columbus rooting for Michigan? Hanging clothes jammed together like scarlet and gray clad people attending the Red, White and Boom Festival? Piles of shoes and boots as mixed up on the floor as your 18-year-old son or daughter choosing a major or career path? Scarves and jewelry jumbled together on wire clothes hangers.
