Functional meets Fancy

I’ve always been into staging and organization. I love the details, the colors, and of course the curb appeal. Functionality didn’t really matter when I was young; I just wanted things to look perfect and pretty. Now that I’m into my early twenties and married to a wonderful man who needs a little bit of guidance on where to put things in our house (since I’ve gone stage crazy), I find myself in two worlds. When does functional meet fabulous and fancy?

The world of don’t touch, move, or rearrange anything…I’ve got it all set up and perfectly placed, just can’t be my reality anymore.

So what can we do?

Well tonight I’ve got three tips for you regarding staging your clothes in your closet:

1. Don’t keep your files, mail, or old luggage in your closet. Not only does it take up space, it can also distract you from getting ready and looking your best. Put files under the bed and old luggage in the garage. Leave room for you to be inspired and put together a flattering outfit.

2.  More often than not we feel uninspired my our clothes. But the truth is it can be hard to create a great outfit when we don’t know what we have to chose from. Hang up as much as you can and space the items out. Avoid dressers, smushed clothes, and smashing things into drawers. If you can’t see some of your clothes you’ll be more likely to forget those items when it comes time to get ready for work in the morning. And honestly who like searching for things when we can’t even slide the clothes from left to right.

3. Get a shoe rack. I have seriously avoided buying anything of the sort for a long time. But now… I have one, and I couldn’t be happier. Quit throwing your shoes under your clothes or in a bin. Take care of them and find a way to put them on display. You may surprise yourself and start creating outfits from the bottom up!
