sorry for the lack of outfit posts; my sartorial wheels have been slowing the longer I go “funemployed” from the fashion world. I am TRYING to keep things up though. Not having a reliable photographer is a hinderance as well. Meh.

Anyway, I figured I’d show you my closet at present, and compile a photographic list of closet inspirations. Every person I meet I tell them I want to live in a two bedroom or more home in the future so I can have a bedroom and a closet. The perfect life. Obviously, being broke and working my way to the top I can’t quite afford the extra room right now so my closet and dresser’s currently take up a fair 50% or so of my bedroom. Not fair for the male I share with (notice his two shelves in the closet and four hanging shirts). I try to keep it organized by color as best I can, though you can’t tell with all the prints. I also have two dressers, full of tees, tanks, jeans, and other non-skirt bottoms (AN ENTIRE drawer of socks and tights/leggings). Like anyone with a love of fashion, my closet is not truly contained to solely “my closet”.

Now, for the inspirations. I LOVE the Ikea Expedit series; it’s clean lines and bulky height. The cubes are just a perfect size and shape for heels and stockpiling bags, as so many bloggers obviously agree. I also dream of having my closet be an office; one room to contain all of my clothes, accessories, sewing machine, and inspiration boards and magazines. A comfy chair, maybe a couch or chaise lounge. All of the following closets (click-through links to the source) are what I aspire my closet to be… ESPECIALLY DulceCandy‘s!

Who has YOUR favorite closet? How do you keep yours organized?

Work and Play

Saturday was a day of both work and play. As some of you may know, I’m a coordinator for the New York Fashion Blogger Meet Up Group. The other coordinators and I, as well as top IFB bloggers and other members of our group attended the Blogger Closet Raid held at the Tribeca Grand Hotel. I had just spent my Friday shopping, but once I found Nitrolicious, all plans to “not spend” went down the drain. Having and amazing shoe collection, ALL in my size, ranging from Jessica Simpson to Jeffrey Campbells to Louboutin’s it was like her set up was curated specifically for me. Though I wish I could have indulged in the crystal encrusted Louboutin’s and Xanadu fur JC’s, I knew I needed to think realistically…and then I found the Jessica Simpson moto boots. I’ve been scouring the internet and shops for the perfect studded moto boots to add to my collection, and when I stumbled upon these for their low price there was no WAY I could say no. The following few images were taken by Monroe of Fashion Steele NYC.











After the raid-fest and saying hello to good friends, it was time to get down to work. Monroe, Yanil and I decided to dine and chat at the Tribeca Grand’s lounge, which was full of attractive attentive staff and delicious drinks, as well as coffee and food according to my counterparts.

I hope they don’t mind that I made myself at home on their chairs!

As you can see I’m completely smitten with my new purchase. I’m also ecstatic that my ombre manicure if still going strong, since nail colors usually don’t last long on me due to chipping and such.
