Closet Envy

One thing you really, really miss when you live in NYC is space. Around you, outside, inside, everywhere you look things are packed together. Luckily, I live in Queens (translation: my apartment is bigger than a normal NYC apartment you'd find in Manhattan or other neighborhoods) but I also share ONE CLOSET with three other people and have the smallest bedroom in our place.

I've been home in Iowa this weekend and did some serious gutting of old clothes that never made it out there with me-all that's left now are more formal dresses, a couple pairs of shoes and old t-shirts from sports and my sorority. The spring cleaning will continue after I get back to NYC, but instead of looking for space saving solutions I'm using this moment as a chance to daydream about having a real closet-one all to myself, with neatly sorted & spaced out clothes that I can thumb through at my leisure. Kind of like the ones below.

Feeling inspired/drooling yet? Me too.

Happy Tuesday (& April, a day late)!



  1. i currently (& have always) shared a closet with my parents (i currently hold maybe a foot of closet space) & cannot WAIT to get an apartment where i can fit more than a few pairs of pants, so i feel your sharing pain!
    & yay for stumbling upon a fellow new york blogger ;)
