You're only as Chic as your closet

On my mind today: Closets

As I've beat to a dead horse (that's not right), I am moving soon. Very soon! But I have yet to find an apartment that has everything I want for the price I want. So.. I'm working on that.

My number one necessity in a new place? A big, ginormous, fatty closet.

I don't have many pics of my closet right now as it gives me anxiety. I do have this one though and you can kind of see it...

{Closet... how do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways...}

It's nothing special. A regular door opening leading to a bar on the Left and the Right for my clothes. The bars are about 2.5 feet and both are stuffed with my clothes. I have literally done anything and everything to make this closet workable...

  • I constantly have my off-season clothes boxed in our basement.
  • I use my dresser and purchased trunks.
  • I overtook part of the closet in the hallway.
  • I have donated lots and lots of clothes.
  • And now... I just have a huge tub of folded clothes at the base of my closet.

I do feel that my life will change when I get a decent closet (SERIOUSLY!). I think seeing what I actually own hanging in front of me will help me to shop less, the only clutter in my room is clothes strewn about simply because there's no room for them (I have put everything I can in a place!) and it will just be less stressful.

Thus... for my Friday delight as I apartment hunt more (& have found a lot of older places downtown with Carrie Bradshaw-esque closets-so pumped!!)... here's some closets I wish I had or hope to find!

{Paris Hilton}

{Little slice of heaven}

{No wonder Olivia is so unlikable...}

{Art, clothes, deco and a dog? Sold.}

{Hey owner of this closet: Want to trade lives with me?}

{Beautiful!}

{I think closets that look like stores are the way to go...}

{If I had a closet with ALL my clothes, plus a dog to play with AND my laptop- It's safe to say I would never leave the room}

{Hello. I live here.}

Have a clutter-free weekend!

Ahhh! I love this post! I wish I could design a dream closet for myself. OMG. I'm in love with these closet pictures too! It's like in Sex and the City when Big & Carrie decide to get married and he asks her "should we get you a diamond?" and Carrie replies, "no! just a big closet!" LOVE!

stay classy!

I so need a bigger closet. :) It is so hard to store everything - these all look amazing! :)

Leah said...

I would not leave the room too... my closet will be my fave space in the house. I wish I have those closets. I was planning to convert the guest room in my house to a closet but my boys did not agree. They told me that if I have that big closet space, I won't stop buying stuff to fill it up. Hahaha! Have a great weekend Caitlin! xoxo

Mari said...

Dragonfly said...

Yes, I could do with the 'little slice of heaven'. So beautiful :-)

Vanessa said...

Oh closets. I too am stuck with a teeny tiny closet in which I have to share. I have to pack up clothes for the seasons. I hate it. I feel in love with the closet from the Sex in the City movie but I'll take any of those listed above!

Nathalie said...

dont give me a diamond ring, just built me a really big closet.... i understand your dilemma. i am currently stuffing everything in my little wardrobe, my bf even suggested i should take it slow with buying stuff, because of the space. well, easy for him to say :) i wish you good luck on finding your dream closet with kitchen and bathroom :)

walkin wardobes london said...

I seen an article on walkin wardrobe regarding sex in the city where they bought it from. I think it may be from walkin wardrobe store.

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Ahh girl! I've never really thought that much abotu closets before and kind of thought that having a big beautiful walk in closet is more of a luxury rather than a necesseity... Well until recently! Somehow I only realized how little room for closthes I had in my closet only when I started redecorating my room in Jan.! I used to have all my clothes thrown in in no order there, so it used to fir more or less... It was hard finding stuff in it, but somehow I didn't giv eit much thought lol Then after I've really organized and rearranged EVERY little thing in my room and tried find a place for everything I owned, I realized how little closet space I had :( It's definately true that seeing what you own and knowing just exactly where it's stored/placed helps you both shop less and get dressed and ready much faster, thus making your life so much easier in so many ways! So go girl, bets of luck to you with finding a great apartment with a great closet space!!

mirmirfosho said...

i'm insulted, why didnt my closet make it into the post? haha. my closet looks nothing like my mobile upload of a few weeks ago. sigh...

Holly said...

You do not need an apartment, you need a closet with a kitchen and bathroom.

Jessica Polley said...

I think every girl can relate to this. I'm currently on the hunt for a place with more closet space too! I'm surprised you're finding places downtown that have this.

My problem is that I lack storage space in the other areas of my apartment - so everything from Christmas decor to office supplies ends up with my clothing.

What a mess, indeed! Good luck on your hunt!
