I am shamelessly borrowing this idea from InStyle magazine — one of my guilty pleasures! I just got my April copy in the mail and I thought this was fun. I hope you’ll join me! Leave your answers in the comments, or write your own post and link up!
Closet Confessions Poll
Can your shoes usually be found:
- stacked in their original boxes
- piled in a heap
- neatly arranged on a rack
Unfortunately, I will have to go with number 2.
While I do save the shoe boxes to my nicer shoes, and thanks to EasyClosets I have shelves to line them up on, more often than not there is a huge pile of frequently worn shoes in a heap on the floor of my closet . . . and scattered about my bedroom . . . and bathroom . . . and kitchen and family room and lined up on the stairs ready to be taken up. I’m a bit of a slob.
Which shades rule your wardrobe?
- mostly neutrals
- black, black and more black
- lots of bold hues
Hm… a few years ago I’d have said mostly black, but right now, I think my closet is pretty colorful. Tell me what you think.
How are your clothes organized?
- organized? uh, define organized.
- by color
- by occasion
It’s not that I don’t have a system; it’s just that I can’t seem to use it. Every once in a blue moon, I will organize everything by type and then by color. And I do have formal stuff separate. But then I often end up with a hodge-podge. Thanks to the way my rods are positioned, I do keep pants together, dresses together, and tops together. I guess my answer would be “all of the above”.
The dream addition to your collection is:
- an edgy leather jacket
- a gorgeous evening gown
- a timeless designer handbag
- other: you name it!
It’s not very dreamy, but I’d love to find the perfect feminine versatile blazer. It’s a piece that is definitely missing from my wardrobe.
Think fast! You can only keep one of your beloved wardrobe staples. What stays?
- my favorite jeans
- my hottest dress
- a killer pair of shoes
If you know me, I don’t need to bother answering this one! You will have to pry my favorite jeans out of my cold, dead hands.
Fess up — whose closet is neater? You or your guys?
I’d say it’s a draw. We are both pretty sloppy people. I guess that’s good, right? Cuts down on the nagging.
Your biggest closet goal this spring is:
- purge the pieces I don’t wear
- find ways to use the things I already own
- create an organizational system and stick to it
I am always good about getting rid of things. We switch our closets out with every season, and I use that opportunity to donate the pieces I don’t think I’ll wear anymore. And I have an organizational system; I just need to stick to it. SO. I will go with #2 — I want to get better about using things I already own. Although I have to say, I’m doing better with that thanks to my Daily Mom Style posts. They might seem repetitive as it is, but I’d be wearing the same 3 outfits over and over if I didn’t have to show them to the world.
What about you??? Dish!!
