An organised mess

Wardrobes can be a woman’s best friend and worst enemy.

I’ve had a few emails asking to see my wardrobe, and it’s nothing special in comparison to some other wardrobes, but the contents of that wardrobe is something i’m gradually becoming very proud of.

But, there is one thing that I cannot stand, and that it is clutter. I can’t think, I can’t focus and I can’t make decisions, therefore a messy wardrobe is not an option for me.

Above are photos of my wardrobe, which may look a bit messy to you, but to me, it is an organised haven of possible outfits and accessories!

I literally have everything hanging in an order… By memory it goes

  • Newest pieces
  • Skirts
  • Jeans
  • Singlets
  • Cami’s
  • Plain T-shirts
  • Printed T-shirts
  • Open/Button up knits
  • Knitted jumpers (Organised by brand)
  • Hoodies
  • Active Wear
  • Vests
  • Jackets
  • Coats
  • Sentimental pieces that can’t be flattened into a box

I know, It sounds almost OCD, but it’s not, in fact, it’s actually one of the best systems I could have thought of. I can literally get ready in record time, and when i’m out organising an outfit or shopping, I can picture everything I have, this way I can make sure that I purchase things that will will go well with other pieces that I already own.

My shoes used to be in a massive pile on the floor until I converted an old TV unit into a shoe rack and organised everything, same with the bags, they were in a small box, but I couldn’t even deal seeing my bags out of shape, crumpled, without even being able to see what I have.

Sometimes your ‘Wardrobe malfunctions’ are literally due to the state of your wardrobe, and I can say that from experience!

Yes. That is Iron Man on the right, and yes, that is Logan Lerman, One Direction and the Jonas Brothers on the left. I am a fan girl. Deal.
