You know that thing...

When you open your closet door and just feel completely exhausted by all your outfit possibilities? Yeah, us too. We've all been there. Not all of us, however, have actually had the guts to take it a step further and actually start over — from scratch. Tanisha Pina, our associate market editor, did just that though, and she's got some tips for how to build a wardrobe of pieces you'll be excited to wear, every time. 

And next up, ever noticed that Sephora stores looks like MAC stores looks like Nyx stores? Why is that? Our beauty reporter Cheryl Wischhover investigates.  —Stephanie Talmadge, social media editor

I Just Decided I Hate My Entire Wardrobe, Now What?
A closet.
Story by Tanisha Pina

About a year ago, I found myself saying “I have literally nothing to wear” far too often for someone with a full closet. I wasn’t happy with anything I owned. (Whether it was because my style had changed, or my body, or if I was just being difficult, I’m still not sure.) So, I did what any reasonable person would do and got rid of it all.

My initial reaction was relief. I had made upwards of $100 at my local Buffalo Exchange (you can attest to this being a big deal if you’ve ever felt slighted while consigning), and was able to donate whatever they didn’t take to a local clothing drive. But with a clear head and closet aside, I started to settle into the reality of the situation. Now I actually literally had nothing to wear — once an exaggeration, now a fact.

For a week or so, I wore the same two outfits with subtle variations (thank you, layering), and thought long and hard about how to start all over.

Rebuilding your wardrobe — especially as an adult — can be a tedious and relatively expensive process, but when you go into it with a solid game plan, it doesn’t have to be a hard one. To take the guesswork out of how and where to start, you’ll find a handful of key pieces and suggestions here, straight from someone who's been there.

Why Do So Many Beauty Stores Look and Feel the Same?
Inside a cosmetics store.

Consider a space loaded with lacquered black and white surfaces, employees dressed in black, red lipstick everywhere, and dance music playing. Is it a nightclub or Sephora? (Or MAC or NYX or Nars, for that matter?)

If beauty stores give you a sense of déjà vu, it’s not your imagination. Many of them definitely have a certain sleek, recognizable vibe. MAC, NYX, Sephora, Nars, Chanel, Kiko Milano, and even the newly opened Dior beauty boutique in NYC all feature black and white gleaming interiors, often with neon light accents. While they all do offer some points of differentiation, the overall feeling is one of I’m in a very cool place!

“I think there is an accepted aesthetic around simple, minimal, glossy retail interiors,” says a design professional who wanted to comment anonymously. “I wouldn’t say that’s always been the case, but it certainly is the design aesthetic right now.” So consider black lacquer the millennial pink of beauty retail.

Who: Sarah Pappalardo & Beth Newell
What they do: Cofounders, Reductress
What they want: Steph Mantis Kitty Kitty Charm, $175

People freak out every time I wear this two-headed cat necklace. It is the biggest piece of jewelry I own and the only statement jewelry I will wear in public. This is great for anyone who is obsessed with said animal, weighty brass, or gunmetal objects, and has incredible taste in jewelry. Works for both dudes and chicks, too. —Sarah

Psychic Reading with Gemma Deller, $321 for a 45-minute session

I know this suggestion will make me sound fully crazy to a lot of people, but if you're looking for a gift for someone close to you who isn't a total skeptic, I highly recommend it. It's great for people who want to connect with deceased loved ones or who are just feeling stuck in their lives.

I don't know if I'd be making a living in comedy if it weren't for Gemma, who I first saw six years ago, and I love what I do so much. She has none of the woo-woo vibes people expect from psychics and isn't about simply predicting your future. She will help you find direction and figure out how you are getting in your own way in your life and relationships. —Beth

Who: Maggie Gould
What they do: Violinist
What they want: Kate Spade Cameron Street Neema Backpack, $348

I am forever schlepping with a violin and bags, whether it be to rehearsals, a last-minute sub in the pit, a recording session, or to teach. I've been looking for a feminine, beautifully-made backpack that will last me through the schleps, evenly distribute the weight, and house my music, strings, teaching materials, etc. Always a fan of Kate Spade, this one seems up to the task and is the perfect size. I haven't worn a backpack in a while, but this may be a step up from my grade-school L.L.Bean-initialed backpack, don't you think?

Check out the rest of our non-gift guide picks here. Want to make donations your gift of choice instead? We've got you covered on that front too.
