Hello I'm Clo!
Living at Uni is a struggle storage wise, I'm not going to beat about the bush with the subject. It was, for the first couple of weeks at least a nightmare. I'm not one to travel lightly so when it came to the 'Big Move' I took everything bar the kitchen sink.
After tripping over my things multiple times, I'd had enough. I took myself to Wiko and bought some under bed and 32L clear plastic boxes
to house my cleaning supplies, make up, dried food, kitchen equipment and shoes. At least now I could see what stuff was in each box as well as stack them so my belongings were out of the way so I could see and walk on the floor.
With the issue of 'Stuff' space firmly under control, I then had to tackle the grotty little wardrobe
I'd been given. Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful - as lets face it, some people have nothing, but the cleaner could have given it a spruce up before term begun. #justsayin'
At home I have an open wardrobe that consists of two stand alone Ikea wardrobe poles
screwed into the floor and ceiling. I mean business.
Here, at uni I have a half wardrobe and two draws. It's certainly challenging, especially as I live in the UK and my two rain coats take up at least 30% of the space
at any given point. But try I have and reduce I have too. I'm very pleased with the amount of 'Stuff' I've been doing to my look, lifestyle, style and clothing
recently and boy oh boy have I banged on about it! (See previous blogs here)
With the purchase of a few new dresses: See Evening Dress
/ Cath Kidston Dress / Gap Black Friday Dresses
I've given some real thought to how I can keep them in shape, clean and uncreased
. (I'm convinced that creases were invented by the devil
) I've also paid attention to the fact that I'm doing a fair bit of to-ing and fro-ing next year and want to keep my clothes safe with minimum effort required and also so I can sort of throw everything into my suitcase at a moments notice.
became my solution, long ones mind you. My dresses have length. Clear, zipped up the middle and hooked at the top. These clear solutions stop snagging, clothes clumping and are ready to travel! At just £2.50 per pair
at Wilko these plastic dress covers are durable and well worth the price. They can even hold up to three dresses per cover and fold to nothing if empty.
For each new piece of clothing in my wardrobe I'm going to house it in a suit cover to keep it fresh, new and obvious as to what is new and what's not. Sounds super dorky, but this is going to be a great year for my wardrobe!
Lots of love,
Clo : -))
