Before we get to the best part of my apartment we have a little NYFW housekeeping to do. Let’s quickly get down to the dirty…
It all begins today. New York Fashion Week, otherwise known as the week I survive solely on adrenaline, lightly toasted bagels, & champagne. Seriously. The next 4 days are slammed with runway shows, presentations, cursing scuffed heels, showroom visits, NYC frands, touristy moments, cab selfies, bitching about the heat, & more bitching about 18 hour days that I happily embark upon all for the love of fashion. At this very moment, I’m likely manicuring myself much to the chagrin of my neighbor on the bus. Sorry, buddy. Take a minute to situate your Fashion Week situation & bookmark the pages below.
You should follow me on Instagram because StyleList said so in their list of top 25 Instagram accounts to follow during NYFW & that’s always a good enough reason, right? While you’re at it, follow me on Twitter aka my stream of consciousness during Fashion Week mayhem. God help us all. I guess you should probably also check out these other killer accounts you should be following throughout the week.
Can’t watch the shows live? Head over to Style.com for a full picture recap of nearly every show under the tents + more.
Is that it? Did I miss anything? Do you have questions? THERE’S SO MUCH HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. It’s about to get rul NYFW heavy on DS social media for the next few days so ask me anything on Twitter & let me know what sneaky behind-the-scenes stuff you want on Instagram & Facebook. Now back to the regularly scheduled programming.
My closet. Honestly, it’s what dreams are made of. If unicorns & glitter came together this is what they would create. Two doors, four racks, & shelving as far as the eye can see. OK, maybe not as far as the eye can see but sister can store a few pairs of shoes in this thing. GET IT.
I’ve always had an issue working pieces into my rotation if I couldn’t see them so now that I have space, most all my clothes are hanging. Blazers, sweaters, blouses, dresses, skirts, & pants are all separated into their own section & organized by style & then by color. I organize first by style since more often than not I know what type of clothing I’m interested in wearing that day, not necessarily what color.
Next come the bags. Clutches & smaller bags are lined up underneath my larger bags & totes. Each bag sits upright so I can clearly see all options when I’m running out the door – keys, lipgloss, Smartcard in one hand & wallet, phone, & a charger in the other.
Workout gear, socks, belts, undergarments, tights, etc. are stored in separate cloth bins (you can shop them at the bottom of the post) & labeled accordingly.
& finally the shoes. Imelda Marcos has nothing on me. Nothing. I actually have two shoe racks in my apartment. One built into my closet & the other just outside since not all would fit. I hope my mom’s not reading this; They were all on sale! I wish I could say I was actually practical when it comes to show game purchases – I suppose I’m practical in the sense that it’s obvious every woman should own a pair of faux snakeskin fringe booties in her life. Or that you can never have too many black boots. Like. Ever.
