Yes, I am a Virgo. I love organizing everything and making even the smallest places pretty. Take my closet for instance. I was looking on Pinterest for closet ideas and couldn’t find anything that wasn’t a walk in closet. I don’t have a walk-in closet, but still wanted it to be organized and pretty so I made my own rules!
My first few tips are all about organizing. To make my closet work for me, I purchased all matching hangers, some storage boxes, and other pretty little organizing boxes. The matching hanger tip is not a new one, but it does make such a difference. I love the black velvet ones because it helps keep my blouses and tank tops all nice and tidy.
I also love colour coding my clothes. I think everyone has a different way or putting their clothes away. Either by type, or colour or putting outfits together. My favourite way to do it is by colour because I pretty much know what I have in my wardrobe… I’m not one to hold onto things that don’t fit and am constantly getting rid of things. I also think it looks quite nice.. which is the best!
I also love how my closet has shelves on the bottom half. It’s so nice having a place to display all my shoes! I have most of my shoes here, and a couple back home in Atlanta but I like to organize them (you guessed it) by colour and type. This is where I reiterate that I am a Virgo, and although I don’t totally believe in horoscopes, I do see some truth in the Virgo personality diagnoses.
I don’t like keeping too much jewelry on my vanity because I find it gets sort of cluttered, and I also love having my jewelry right beside my clothes so that I can see them. I made this DIY jewelry hanger last year and hung it inside my closet so I can see it every day. I always forget to wear jewelry, but when it is all displayed in this way I find myself reaching for it. The DIY is basically just a frame that I painted gold and put little gold hooks on the inside so I can hang everything neatly.
To make the space even more pretty, I bought these three little boxes from IKEA. I put things like extra makeup, hair ties and phone cases in these. I just like how they fit on the shelf and look pretty. I also love how my favourite purse looks next to them! I haven’t been using my Kate Spade as much this winter, so I decided to display it on my shelf.The pretty purse and jewelry and clothing makes me feel so special and glamorous.
