Sorry for my absence folks, but I had the itch to get my spring cleaning done early. My closet was an absolute mess. Seriously, it couldn’t have been more disorganized. I could barely make an outfit because I couldn’t see any of my clothes.
So I set up camp in my bedroom for the last three days going through boxes, and taking everything out of my closet. Then I did what seemed to be the impossible, I tried everything on. I took every piece I own off the hanger and tried them on one by one. This means I tried on 49 dresses, one of which was my prom dress (which still fits FIY). This took forever, but I discarded everything that didn’t fit. I feel much better knowing that when I look at the items in my closet I fits properly.
I am pretty happy with my finished product. Although I know what you are thinking “All you have is half a closet? Not even half a walk in closet, just half a sliding door closet?” It’s true, it’s a little ridiculous for someone who collects clothing to only have half a closet, but sadly I had to share with the Hubster because we only have one closet in the whole house.
Even though it is a small space and my hangers don’t match and my sweaters are stacked miles high and that there is barely space to move the clothes to get the dresses out, I feel okay about the organization. I put skirts together, then fancy dresses, linen dresses, sun dresses, everyday dresses, vests, leather coats and house coats. I think this system is going to work…for now. I will keep dreaming about a well lit walk in with a full length mirror and a couch.
What layout do you have for your closet? What is your dream closet?
