Closet Confessions: Randa Salloum (Me!)

Oh boy! This post has been a loooong time coming. After 8 years of having the blog and featuring 20 different closets for Closet Confessions, I figured it was about time I featured my own. So, to kick off this year’s series of Closet Confessions… I give you… where all of the magic happens.

You’ll notice that my closet doesn’t actually have A LOT of items. Every piece I own is something that I wear and have worn in the last 3-6 months. I have a strict closet system… if I haven’t worn it for half of the year it gets the boot. Purge, purge, purge! It’s the only way to keep a fresh rotation of clothing in my wardrobe and keep unwanted items out of the way. Of course I have the one offs that I can’t seem to part with but I give them about a year and they get shipped out.

The most efficient way to organize your closet is to color code it. At least for me, I find it much easier to find items that I’m looking for. The order is long sleeves and t-shirts (color coded) then tank tops (in the same color). Sweaters and any other tops that shouldn’t be hung for stretching and shoulder seam damage get folded underneath. Obviously, the same goes for bottoms.

This Forever 21 faux fur jacket takes my wardrobe to the next level. I may have too many jackets but there really is one for every outfit… although sometimes I could use a couple more!

I have a thing for black boots and still have my eye on a few other pairs. Black boots just take an outfit from casual to cool, especially if it has a heel.

I like to organize my heels in their own little cubby drawers. They tend to collect dust and with Riley around, major cat hair. Keeping them in their drawers maintain their quality.

I used to own more accessories than I remembered I had. Every now and then I would rummage through my jewelry drawers to see pieces that I haven’t worn in years! This really bothers me because it just becomes clutter, especially when the cheaper items tarnish. There are the only pieces of jewelry and sunglasses I now own and wear all of them on a monthly basis.

    Hey Randa, love that we finally get to see your closet! I like your keep-no-crap approach to wardrobing.
    I’m curious to know where are your shoe cubbies from?

      They’re Rubbermaid – I’m sure you can find them at most stores. I got them at London Drugs.
