Keeping the wardrobe in order is hard work! English/Deutsch/italiano








Some weeks ago I had the not so very good idea to re-organize all my wardrobe, in order to find immediately every piece I need to combine the outfits for my posts. In pre-blog days I've accustomed to the bad habit of putting on only some very comfortable pieces, especially in winter, so I had no clue where anything was.
Thought it would last three days, instead I'm still here with lots of items I don't know where to put outside. But the shelves are in a fair order, so it's the right moment for taking pictures. No guarantee for tomorrow ;-)

The top picture isn't the typical example, though - made it some months ago for Instagram, and it took me three hours to put in order some shelves only...

All the boots I'm using currently I collocated at the bottom of the library in the entrance room (the part without glass windows), the shoes I stored in boxes in my son's room (since he's away for study I've occupied the entire room,  liberating the bed when he's on visit. Being a good son to a bad mother he doesn't mind :))). Every box carries a post-it with type and color of each pair.
It has always been my dream to have a Polaroid picture on the respective box, like sometimes can be seen in fashion magazines, even bought a Polaroid camera at the end-of-line sales, which came with a ten-picture-kit. The calculation of the actual costs I only did afterwards - it was like a new pair of branded shoes.....
As soon as I find someone willing to stamp them, I'll take pictures with my phone :))





Ordnung im Kleiderschrank ist harte Arbeit!  

Vor ein paar Wochen hatte ich die nicht so gute Idee, alle meine Kleiderschränke neu zu ordnen, um die Teile für die Posts rasch zu finden. In der Zeit vor dem Blog hatte ich die schlechte Angewohnheit angenommen, vor allem im Winter immer die gleichen bequemen Sachen anzuziehen, so hatte ich keine Ahnung mehr wo was war.
Ich dachte an drei Tage - und bin immer noch nicht fertig, vor allem weil noch einiges unterzubringen wäre, aber kein Platz mehr ist. Aber das ist der richtige Zeitpunkt für Fotos, solange alles noch schön an seinem Platz ist

Glaubt aber nicht, dass das erste Bild ein typisches Beispiel ist - ich habe es vor einigen Monaten für Instagram gemacht, und für die wenigen Fächer drei Stunden gebraucht - kurz danach war's nicht mehr ganz so schön....

Im Moment ziehe ich hauptsächlich Stiefel an, so habe ich sie im Bücherschrank im Vorzimmer untergebracht, in den unteren Fächern, wo kein Glas mehr ist. Die Schuhe sind alle im Zimmer meines Sohnes, das sozusagen mein begehbarer Kleiderschrank geworden ist, seit er in einer anderen Stadt studiert. Und diese bösartige Mutter räumt nur das Bett ab, wenn er auf Besuch kommt....

Auf jeder Schachtel ein Post-it mit Farbe und Typ der Schuhe. Es ist immer mein Traum gewesen, Polaroids von jedem Paar darauf  zu kleben. Ich habe auch einmal im Super-Ausverkauf einen Apparat mit 10 Bildern gekauft - und nachher erst gerechnet. Hätte insgesamt so viel wie ein brandneues Paar Designer-Schuhe gekostet! Vielleicht finde ich mal wen, der mir Handy-Fotos druckt :))




Chi mi ha fatto voler mettere ordine negli armadi???

Un po' di tempo fa ho avuto la gloriosa idea di mettere in ordine i miei armadi, per trovare meglio le cose da abbinare per i post. Sicché pre-blog avevo preso la brutta abitudine di usare, sopratutto in inverno, sempre solo le stesse cose comode, mi era sfuggita la collocazione della maggior parte dei miei vestiti.
Avevo previsto tre giorni intensi, ma ora sono passato già quasi due settimane - e finito non ho........ma sono a buon punto, almeno da fare le foto.
Anzi, meglio adesso, perché se devo schiacciare dentro tutto quello che é ancora fuori - addio ordine!

Non fatevi ingannare dalla prima foto - l'avevo fatta mesi fa per Instagram, e mi ci sono voluto almeno tre ore solo per un' unico compartimento - che tra l'altro tre ore dopo le foto era già ancora in disordine....

Gli stivali che metto hanno trovato un posticino negli scompartimenti inferiori della libreria in anticamera - dove non c'e più il vetro - le scarpe invece sono tutte in scatole nella stanza di mio figlio, che, da quando studia in un'altra città, ho occupato completamente (libero solo il letto quando viene a trovarci, che madre snaturata ;-)) Ho anche messo un post-it con tipo e colore di ogni paio invernale (i sandali possono aspettare)

E da sempre il mio sogno avere una foto Polaroid su ogni singola scatola, come ogni tanto si vede nelle riviste. Ho anche comprato una camera Polaroid in super-saldi a fine produzione, il calcolo del costo pero l'ho fatto solo dopo - avrei potuto comprare un nuovo paio di scarpe molto firmate......... Magari, se trovo qualcuno che me li stampa - allora il prossimo progetto sarà fare le foto con il telefonino

  2. Rosa I feel you here. It's hard hard work. I tried the label thingy with my shoe boxes, to no avail. It took me ages to find some heels, now they are in a clear shoe closet, hope you know what I mean. Yeah I know I have too many shoes, lol. But I am not the only one, right ;)

  14. OMG, that wardrobe looks so FUN!!! I can't show pictures of mine, it is SUCH a mess right now!! lol.

    Anyway, in response to your comment on my blog: It’s so crazy you say that.. my husband and I WANT to get stationed in Italy, and there are a lot of places there where his job is needed, so we very easily COULD move there! The only thing, the Navy recently implemented a rule, that if you have kids under the age of 2, they WON’T send you overseas! We’re still working on our little family, so we won’t be able to move to Italy for at least 4 to 5 more years… but maybe someday!! And I would be tickled pink to meet you! <3 - www.domesticgeekgirl.com

  35. Hi Rosa! It seems like you had a lot of work with so many clothes! Wow, I wish my wardrobe was that organized! Sadly, I have to share mine with my boyfriend, so I need to save space as much as possible. Do you have any tips for staying organized with little space?

    And I must say, I'm impressed with the amount of your shoes :) When I saw the picture, my first thought was that you needed a separate room to store them all, can't imagine how you managed to do this before your son left for study! :)

    1. :))) Joanna, nor do I. Or better - had everything in boxes everywhere. As you maybe already understood, I'm addicted to charity and flea markets, and with some care you can find shoes there as well. Lots of women buy them in the heat of the moment in sizes that aren't theirs ;-))) (uhmmm, me too, but at least I don't spend that much money on them).
      I use to put more than one thing on the hangers, either of the same type or color, or I already put together outfits and hang them on the doors - for me it's a nice decoration, for my husband a little bit less.....
      In shoe boxes very often fit more than one pair, so if it's labelled it's ok, can be found quickly. Used to keep one bag in the other when I had less space, but then I never found the smaller ones and had to take out everything, becoming nervous :)))))

    2. Haha, I understand, it's the same with sales - when I see something I like, size doesn't matter that much - because it's such a great deal :) And then I end up selling stuff on the internet! Haha

      It's a good idea with hangers - I usually put more than one thing, but it's kind of random, so I have trouble finding the stuff underneath. I'll try doing this according to colors, as you say :) And I also need to label the shoe boxes!

  55. Hello Rosa! You have inspired me to take the day off from work tomorrow to organize and redo my entire closet. I will admit that because of my current disorganization, I keep wearing the same stuff over and over and the majority of the times I can't seem to figure out what to wear. It is actually pretty sad. Organizing my closet was one of my new year's resolutions and it is already February and I haven't started doing it at all. It is actually funny but I also considered using my daughter's room (she is also away at college) to store some of my stuff but she specifically told me before she left not do it. Who she think she is!!! LOL Your closet organization project turned out amazing. Using pictures for your shoe boxes sounds pretty good. Have an amazing week Rosa and thanks so much for sharing. XOXO, Jeannette

    2. Thanks so much Rosa! I actually have one of those movable racks for the clothes I want to create outfits with. I have it in my room and it is actually on the way all the time (kind of annoying!) and I can't believe I didn't think about moving it to my daughter's room before!!! Thanks so much for the suggestion. She comes home once a month or every six weeks and then for the entire summer. I seriously need to work on my closet soon. Will keep you posted!

I decided to finally clean my bedroom and put away laundry i did the weekend before (everythign was wrinkled! lol!) and I had so many clothes in a pile on my desk chair and my closet was a mess! Finally after also 3 hours cleaning and folding and putting things away my room is so clean and I can actually find clothes! And my desk is usable again...haha! lets see how long this lasts!
    I really like the shoe box idea, I have too many shoes and I put 2 racks on top of eachother in hopes of fitting all my shoes, but have too many, I might just start with the boxes like you have :)
