May was a good month. Dress wise. A few (okay, a lot of) gorgeous dresses came my way.
Downside to this steady flow of new dresses is that my closet is really overflowing. I have started to use the back of my bedroom door as extra closet space but still there are just too many! Recently I started to sell some dresses online and of course I donate a lot. But to be honest, I like all of my dresses and really want to keep most of them. Maybe I can steal some more closet space from my better half. Anyway, here’s a little overview of the pretty new dresses and a peek into my closet.
The strapless polkadot dress in features picture is from Asos. You can find it here.
Collectif is known for their quirky retro vibes. Just as I like it!
This gingham dress is my summer favourite. So versatile! Shop it here.
Popisma is a brand from Spain. Their feminine dresses are fun and beautifully made. The dress I picked is very festive and would be perfect for a party, but I wear it to work too (I’m the overdressed one at work). The fabric is a gorgeous cotton pique.
When Na-kd approached me for a collaboration, I was hesitant at first. Their website is filled with young and flirty fashion which, at first site, doesn’t suit my style at all. But I decided to step out of my comfort zone and pick a few items that are versatile and perfect for summer. When they arrived, I couldn’t be happier. I love the bold colours and the quality is very good.
Now where do all these clothes go? Into my closet!
I have a big closet with sliding doors, made by my dear father. It’s built wall to wall and floor to ceiling into my bedroom. It runs much deeper than standard closets, so it fits two rows of folded clothing on each shelf. Only downside is that I sometimes forget about the clothes in the back rows!
It’s a big closet, but it’s full. Very full. As I said, I use the back of my bedroom door as extra space to hang dresses, but the door is about to collapse under the weight. So now every time a new dress or skirt arrives, an old one has to go. If my girlfriends don’t want it, I try to sell it or give it to charity. Sometimes with pain in my heart because I really want to keep everything. I admit, I’m a hoarder!
So here are a few corners of my messy closet:
From left to right: part of the skirts section, dresses at the back of the door and some of the dresses in the closet. Sorry for the mess and sorry for the bad pictures. It’s hard to photograph inside a closet. Especially when it’s so full.
