My closet is verrrrrry small by today's standards. It measures only 25" deep and less than 5 feet wide. So I must be selective with what I put in it. You won't find anything there that I don't wear on a regular basis.
Let's open the doors and look inside.
I used to have a very narrow wooden cabinet in my kitchen that I used to hold cookbooks. My sweet hubby cut it in half for me so that I can use part of it on the top shelf of my closet for my purses and travel bags. (I plan to paint the inside of my closet and the shelves all the same light, light pink very soon.)
I put the other half of the cabinet on the floor of my closet and there I stash a fluffy pink bath robe, my box of tights, and a basket of recharging cords for my cell phone and IPod.
On the wall above the top shelf, my straw hat hangs on a small nail.
On the left inside closet door is the very-important full-length mirror. Above the mirror is a hook on which I hang tomorrow's outfit after choosing it tonight, a la Flylady instructions.
On the closet floor left to right: shelves, rack of shoes (with walking shoes and house shoes sitting handily in front), and a cardboard box holding my off-season clothes. And sitting on top of the box...
...a basket holding my exercise mat and weights.
I have a hook and a couple of nails on the left side of the closet where I hang my gown, belts, and extra clothes pins.
This is my favorite kind of hanger. They're velvety....mmmmm.... My clothes love them.
My scarves are all on a regular wire hanger. It hangs on the clothes rod and I can just pull it out, pop it onto the door hook, and pick out a scarf when needed.
And hanging all the way to the right, peeking out from behind some clothes, is my prized possession.
This pink paisley cutie has 20 zippered pockets ~ on one side ~ and 20 on the other! Yes, 40 pockets to hold my many multi-colored necklaces. Can you see that I have them grouped by colors?
And this is the other treasure I found at TJ Maxx on the same day I found the beauty above. It holds all my earrings, my shorter necklaces, and even a few of my bracelets! I love TJ Maxx for cute one-of-a kind treasures.
And there you have it. The grand tour of my little closet. Thanks for joining me! Don't forget to drop by and visit Missus Smarty Pants' fashion website and she also has a wonderful fashion blog. She's taught me everything I know about the world of fashion! Thanks Leslie! :)
