Hey guys! I'm still recovering from my weekend in Denver, but I wanted to make sure I kept you busy in my absence! The weekend before I left, I found some strength to do a big overhaul in the closet room. And I mean BIG. 11 bags of purging big! 8 hours of work big! So don't let the above photo fool you because it wasn't all unicorns and rainbows.

I have gotten several requests for a tour of the closet room, but I have been procrastinating because I knew it was long overdue for a good purge, and I also wanted to better organize some stuff because my bags were kind of all over the place, and things were just a bit chaotic because of the fact that I needed a good purge.

So! Now that that's taken care of, I did not hesitate to do a little video for you because it will probably be another 3-5 years before another great purge! I linked to some of the pieces you see in this video up above, or at least similar items if I could still find them. Hope you enjoy! Oh and you're not allowed to watch the video unless you agree to still love me unconditionally and not judge me for being a hoarder. Please and thank you.

The one pet peeve is that I wish I would have gone with the black velvet hangers. I chose off white at first - I ordered a ton through The Container Store, but the price adds up quickly! I managed to find some for a fraction of the price at places like Ross, Marshall's, and TJ Maxx, but the problem is - they're a hodge podge of brands so the shades of beige aren't quite the same. I think it would have been less noticeable had I done all black, but I was already about 100 hangers into it before I made this realization. Oh well! Live and learn!

One of these days, I will have it professionally done with proper wall units and such, but for now, it's still a great place that I love, and I've worked with what I've got! Hope you enjoyed it!

  10. The space, the space!!! This is the biggest difference with houses here in London - we definitely have to use every square inch of space! And I've just spotted that we're the same shoe size Caryl! So next time you do a purge....; ) Sadly, Bloggers Closet isn't available in the UK, but anytime you're clearing, let me know! Amazing purge, well done you, the charity shops must be thrilled! Thanks for hosting this fab linkup, hope you're having a great time in Denver x


    1. These 11 bags all are getting donated. Way too much stuff to list, and I didn't feel like they would yield that much profit anyway! I do have a small pile set aside to sell. I just use good old fashioned ebay for that!

  11. Oh my gosh, girl!!! Your closet is a dream!! It's heaven! lol. I can't even tell you how jealous I am right now. hahaha! Seriously, it looks great, you did an amazing job!

  12. Man oh man, wish I had a closet room!! I need to purge and organize as well.

  13. Ah that looks like such an amazing purging that I should be doing too haha. Bravo for taking it on!! 11 bags is not easy I know. Loved watching the video, and hearing your voice. Your room looks great, and I love the little touches you added like the cork board for jewelry. Have a fab new week lovely! XOXO, Elif

  14. Really, really enjoyed watching your video! The room looks amazing! Definitely a room I wouldn't mind locking myself in lol! Your collection is absolutely drool worthy! I so need to clean out and organize my clothes now!

    Hope you have a great Monday!

  16. Love how you decided to use the bookcases with the glass doors for your shoes to eliminate dust, what a fabulous idea! And yayyyy for a big purge, it always feels amazing when it's all done doesn't it?

  17. Excuse the french but that is a shit ton of purging you did! Great job! Your closet also looks great, I'm a wee bit jealous ;)


  18. Your closet is amazing!! You got rid of so much! I did a closet purge this weekend (Great minds, huh!?) and I have 4 bags to take to Plato's closet. woohoo!!

  19. Closet tours are so much fun! Yours is quite amazing. I think I'd just wall around with my jaw dropped the whole time I'm in there! You've done a great job with the whole set up. What are your plans for the purged items? Well you be selling them anywhere? You have amazing taste so I'd love to get a chance to peek at what you're getting rid of!

  20. I think it's so much cooler than a professionally done closet could ever be! Like I said on your IG, I'm awestruck! <3


  21. I absolutely LOVE that you have a closet room! That's amazing! And the carpet is so fun!


  22. Purging my closet is a task I have been avoiding like a plague. But pretty soon I have to make way for teeny tiny outfits, so I have to force myself to clear out some space..sigh. Looks like you had a productive closet cleanout!

  23. Great and beautiful space! Thanks for showing us!
