Closet Round Up

Hello!  How was everyone’s week?  Mine was fine, thanks for asking.

Now!  I live in an apartment with a walk in closet, but it’s not very big or organized.  So this week in looking for inspiration for myself, I thought I would share my favorites.  Some of these are organization, some are awesome pictures, but all of them are just cool!

So enjoy!

Fabulous Finds and Fashions

Good morning everyone! Welcome to the first edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions. We are very excited to be starting this and can’t wait to see what the future holds!

So we are going to be starting off with some fabulous fashions. I went ahead and took some pictures of some of the outfits I have worn to school so you can get a sense of my fashion style.

1. Comfy Plaid

Plaid

Now I know I wore a very similar outfit in the fabulous fall fashion post, but it is too good to not show again. This outfit is a Faded Glory men’s shirt that I purchased from Walmart for $10. The jeans are Forever 21 that I purchased for $20 (wouldn’t it have been funny if I bought them for $21?!).  The white tank top is Route 66 that I purchased from Sears for $5.  And I purchased the Qupid boots from a local discount store for $15.  This outfit is very comfortable and is something that I would wear everyday if I could.  But, that’s not exactly sanitary.

2. Sailing Out to Sea

Sailor

I love how this outfit looks!  It looks cute and it may be perfect for going out on a yachting trip.  The American Eagle jacket was purchased from a yard sale a few years ago for something around the price of $5.  The pink Danskin shirt came from Walmart for $10.  These are the same Forever 21 jeans (I like to reuse the same jeans for most of my outfits).  I finished the outfit with a pair of Maurices boots that I got for Christmas for $40.  Of course the sparkly boots, which I would consider the centerpiece of the outfit, are the most expensive.  Perfection? Probably.

So these are two of my fabulous fashions that I have worn to school.  They are cute, fabulous, and perfect for everyday wear.  I hope that you enjoyed this edition of the Fabulous Finds and Fashions and hope to see you here next time.

My Closet Makeover

I’m finally back!  Nothing against the blog, but work has gotten me extremely busy and it has been hard to find time to write something for the blog.  But, I got a day off from work and finally found time to get something together…

My closet.

Closet Makeover

My closet is atrocious.  For more than one reason.

1. I have too many clothes and shoes. I need to go through them and get rid of some of my things.

2. I don’t have that much floor space because of all the shoes on my floor.

3. Even though I have the most clothes out of all of my roommates, I have the smallest closet.  That would be thanks to having the wonderful water heater in my closet.  Yeah…

Closet Makeover

So I took time go through my clothes.  I organize my shirts by color, so I took out the shirts by color and went through a process of getting rid of them.  My criteria to keep a shirt was: do I like it, is it long enough (I’m tall), does it still fit, and is it still fashionable.  I tried each shirt on unless I knew for a fact that it still fit.  I also went through dresses, skirts, and tank tops the same way.

I then went through the tee shirts that I own.  Now, I am proud to say that I have a very large black tee shirt collection, but I got rid of a few that I know don’t fit or that I don’t wear.  I also had some smocks that I had for work before we got new shirts that I was able to get rid of.

Now, the prized possession of my clothing, shoes.

Before I started, I took all the shoes out of my closet and off of my shoe hanger.  When I brought them out into my hallway to put on my staircase, I made quite a mess…thankfully I don’t have a downstairs roommate as of the moment, so it’s okay to make a mess.

But here are all my shoes.  All 60 pairs of them.

So I went through them and was able to take my shoes collection down from 60 pairs to 43.  Honestly, I am pretty proud of myself.  It is hard for me to get rid of shoes.

I still have a lot of shoes

So, here is everything that I am getting rid of.

And here is what my closet looks like now!

There is actually space that I can walk on the floor and put new clothes in the closet.  I have my work shirts separated from my tee shirts so they don’t get lost, and I am able to add new things if needed. What a difference!

Have you gone through your closet and what kind of stuff you have gotten rid of?!
