Along Abbey Road | A Lifestyle And Family Blog : My (Unorganized) Closet

My (Unorganized) Closet


I feel that I should let you in on a little secret. Well, actually multiple little secrets.

A) I have an obsession with seeing other people's closets, specifically fashion blogger's closets. You know how you feel all warm and fuzzy and your heart mildly palpitates whenever you get a glimpse of Carrie Bradshaw's wardrobe collection? It just never gets old, no matter how many times you watch the movies or shows. I feel that way with any closet, especially those of people's style I admire.

B) Because of the aforementioned obsession, I thought it would be fun to show you mine, however this is evidence that I need to get more organized. I should probably be a tiny bit embarrassed, but that is just how the cookie crumbles over here.

C) I hate doing laundry, much less folding it. Hence the leaning tower of pantz.

D) When you have exactly 5 feet of space to jam 5,000 articles of clothing into, you get creative with the storage. I use a vintage vase to stack bangles and bracelets, a wire hanger as a makeshift earring rack, and the hanging rod as a necklace display. Gotta work with what you're given, right?

And there is my literal closet full of secrets. What does your closet look like (please tell me it's unorganized too)?

P.S. Today I caved and decided to hang my pants instead of folding them so I can actually see them. I'm considering it a head start on my New Year resolutions.

i love looking in people's closets too--the problem i have is mine is just not big enough. one day i will have enough space to have it all beautifully organised with a home for everything and space for more...who am i kidding.

I also love peeking in other's closet. My present closet is so Tiny and drives me crazy. Definitely a man built this closet...ha ha. I can't find anything. When I did have a closet that I was able to hang my clothes, I did have them by color like the rainbow. It makes finding what to wear easier! One day I will have a walk in but til then...

Don't worry, my closet looks very similar to this. I tend to clean up once a week and vow that I'll keep it that way all week but then I get home after a long day and don't have the energy to hang up my clothes worn that day or put away my sweatpants when I'm getting ready for bed. Thus, the accumulation of "stuff" on my closet floor! At least I can just close the door....

I love peeking into people secret spaces too - when I'm in someones living room I just want to get a whole tour! I was thinking of shooting my tiny closet (that I share with my husband...life is so hard!) but it's a disaster, but after seeing yours, maybe I will :).

I HEAR you on the obsession with other peoples closets. I don't even have the room in my current apartment to even attempt to make my closet look cute. It's more like there is just stuff in every corner and the view of it is rather unappealing. I have this dream of having a huge closet with buttons that will allow the closet to rotate.... ya know...in my dreams ;) I tell my husband about that and he just about looks like he is going to kill me for such a silly idea. But maybe one day....

Even though you say your closet is messy it still looks fantastic! I love the bold colors and all the patterns and textures. You've got some awesome pieces Abbey. And the vase to hold your bangles and cuffs is brilliant. :)

And oh yes, I am with you...but about 10 times worse. You can only see about half of the floor in our small, walk-in closet because hanging up clothes is not my forte. And shoes are mixed in there. And some days (okay most days) it looks like my closet threw up in our bed room. haha When will I ever learn to hang or fold and put away after I wash the clothes?? ;)
