Today, I thought I'd devote my blog to one of my favorite places of my home... my closet.
Eva Longoria has so much closet space, it seems she needs a ladder to reach all of her fabulous goodies!
Let's start by taking a peek inside a few other celebrity closets, so that we can all drool with envy :)
Nicole Richie looks so teeny tiny amongst all of her clothes - it's a good thing she has her pomeranian Foxxy Cleopatra to keep her company!
Look how beautiful Jessica Alba looks next to all of her incredible shoes. It's so cool how for each pair, one shoe is faced heel first and one shoe is faced toe first. I'd love to spend an afternoon trying all of those beauties on!
I just adore the design of Nicky Hilton's closet. From the dark hardwood floors to the clear glass closet doors and neon hangers, this space just screams chic luxury.
I love the natural aspect of fresh cut flowers in a vase on her drawers!
Some of us may feel that the closets of these celebrities are the size of our homes or apartments, but to be fair, most of the time they are :)
I really feel that it's not about how much space we have in our closet, but what we do with that space. Staying organized is key! Every few months, I like to clean out my closet and spend a few hours going through all of my clothing and accessories and determining what I really wear and need to keep.
Yes, I do keep certain garments that I don't wear on a daily basis for nostalgia, but I really believe it's important to donate clothes that are gathering dust to a charity organization or a homeless shelter, so that someone in need can really benefit from them.
One super stylish way to keep my shoes organized that a friend of mine introduced me to is Closet Fetish. Their Couture Shoebox is to die for!
Imagine how easy it will be to find and identify your shoes if you implement their True Shoe Diva Deal, which comes with 36 shoe boxes in your choice of colors such as Stiletto Red, Beige, Ballerina Slipper Pink, Lavender, Light Blue, and Chocolate Brown.
Plus, imagine how fun it will be to have a little photo shoot with all of your shoes!
Another way to add some creative color to your closet is by incorporating The Container Store's Tubular Hangers in Sorbet (sage green, orange sherbet, and bubblegum pink) and Ocean (navy blue, turquoise, and purple) color schemes.
With all of these tips, it's important to not get carried away. I mean, how does someone even have this many different colored sweaters to color-code?? :)
If I had my way, my dream closet would look something like this:
Less of a traditional closet and more of a relaxing showroom for all of my clothes, or as I like to call them, my old friends. Such a cool vibe, right?
With all of these visions of pristine and beautifully organized closets dancing around in my head, I began thinking about some of my all-time favorite closets.
Carrie's closet on "Sex and the City" always seemed to be brimming with the most outrageously gorgeous garments.
Remember when Big showed Carrie her new closet in the "Sex and the City" movie?
Heaven! I also love the scene from "The Devil Wears Prada" when Nigel (Stanley Tucci) takes Andy (Anne Hathaway) through Runway Magazine's expansive closet.
"Chanel, you're in desperate need of Chanel" :)
Overall, my biggest tip is to be aware of every article of clothing and every accessory that you have in your closet, because remember... this is where your precious clothes live most of the year!
If you could create your dream closet, what would it look like? A wall full of shoes, a huge walk-in jewelry box? The more creative the better!
I'll pick a few of my favorites to win these clear shoe bins from West Elm, and because the girls who love to shop always have the best closets, my Heart 2 Shop eye shadow, a perfect pearly purple shade.
A Big Congrats to...
