Welcome to MY closet…

This is a long overdue post… My Closet

Long overdue (and kind of long- but it has pictures and this is close to my heart), as I often talk about getting things in order and how I have to have my closet etc. Well, today, I take you inside my closet and share a bit more with you about my extreme addiction to keeping it nice and tidy and organized!

Okay, so…

Welcome to my closet- still a work in progress!

The Curvy Fashionista's Closet

For starters, I opt to organize my closet by color and item. That way, if I am looking for a white blouse or black jacket- I can find it in a cinch! Yes, by both color and item and within that, I also organize the colors by sleeve length, hem length… don’t judge me… lol

Itemizing helps your closet get dressed with you. Seriously, think about it! You need a skirt- look to the skirts; want to wear a dress- bam!

I work my closet for function, especially with my Virgo tendencies, needing everything to have its place and to be put away nicely… in my personal space, I need order! This helps me immensely!

So… today, I also got the best thing ever for my closet! I fancied some Huggable Hangers from HSN (Thank you to my dear tweethearts for the suggestion)! Did you know that asides from great hangers for your closet, they have fashions that will sit nicely in your closet?


There will be a later post about the fabulosity that can come from HSN, like Sam Edelman sandals in HSN! They have my name all in it!

Okay I digress… how easily I am distracted… back to the Huggable Hangers. So, I chose a gray with gold trim, just to be different and I got two starter packs, cause well… I needed it! The packages also came with closet sachets!

But what I love about these hangers is the sueded covers, so that there is no slippage! Woot! The pant clips come in packs of 20, so you can add as you need! Loves it! I need one more package of hangers and clips! One more and then I will be done! :)

Why am I ranting about hangers? Well… fabulous hangers, asides from keeping your closet looking nice, will extend the life of your clothes. How many times have you had that shoulder stretched out? Or poke through your delicate blouse? The perfect hangers give you clothes LIFE! So…

Fashion, form, and function is what an organized closet will give you!

Next challenge-Organizing the shoes and handbags!

Are you organized? Have you invested in fabulous hangers? What is your closet experience?

    I have been a Huggable Hanger whore since my freshman year in college. I took my closet and half of both of my roommates closets and still needed more space so I made the investment. I was just looking the other day at a way to re-organize my shoes ( I do my clothes the same way you do – down to the letter). I own 76 pairs of shoes and numerou handbags, belts and scarves. I need help with those.

    Wow, your closet looks amazing. I wish I could organize mine like that but half of it is still in a giant suitcase blocking half the closet so I can’t get even get full access. If this fashion thing doesn’t work out, you can organize closets for a living! ;)

    Thank you honey! :) I am in love with my closet right now! Now I need to get some boxes and stuff to make it fabulous…

  • http://thecurvyfashionista.mariedenee.com Marie Denee

    76! Get it girl… I am always purging and giving things away! Only later to regret, but I feel you! I wanna see YOUR closet! LOL

    My choice was the white (which looks gray) with the gold metal as well! I organized my closet with the HH a couple of years ago and i COMPLETELY agree with you Marie! Its important to organize it by color, but i also have seperated the skirts and jackets from the blouses. I decided to go with the ROY G. BIV approach and have White and Black as the bookends. All of my shoes are in the clear boxes from The Container Store, and the fancy handbags are in their bag protectors. I wish other parts of my life were this organized!

    love it…. I’m on a mission to change out all my old hangers to the velvet ones …I have a few but I like the ones with just the top & they’re much harder to find. Your closet looks fab!

  • http://thecurvyfashionista.mariedenee.com Marie Denee

    EEEk! I think I just died! Thank you for visiting!
    My mission became an obsession with figuring this out once I ran out of my black hangers and started to default to wire ones!

    I bit the bullet and made it happen! I feel I can breathe a sigh of relief! LOL

    Wow. Great post and great job on your closet. I really love how you organized it (I’m a virgo myself). I really havebeen wanting to getmy closet organized, but I am unmotivated because the closet in my apartment is super small. :( Hopefully the next apartment I live in will have a nice walk-in closet so my clothes, shoes, and myself will me happy. http://www.thenerdydiva.com

    Do you need a fancy closet-organizing system? Will it add value to your home? If it’s behind closed doors, why does it need to look good anyway? These are all valid questions and concerns when considering a major upgrade to your home.
