Before/After: Victoria’s Closet Goes From Winter Wild To Spring Clean

Just the slightest adjustments can make a giant difference in the world of organization. Take Victoria’s closet: it’s neat enough, but ‘enough’ isn’t enough for the OCD within. Her needs? Lighten it up, color code and get everything looking a bit more organized. As per usual we went to our happy place a.k.a. The Container Store to cater to Victoria’s every organizational whim, and got together with Teen Vogue to get Victoria the organized wardrobe of her (and our) dreams. There’s more pics of the closet plus a few more organizing tips over at TeenVogue.com, BTW

Victoria is a pretty tidy person generally, but her shelves felt quite loose and fluid.

She had a couple of bins and boxes but needed structured storage for her bag collection.

We put all her clutches and small purses in these small open canvas bins so they’re easy to grab when she’s looking for a purse in a hurry (she’s never not in a hurry). We also put random bits and bibs in the round gray hat boxes and larger bags went in the grey storage bins on the top shelf.

Extra hooks have a habit of acting as a catch-all for all your random clothes and uh, plastic crowns.

We freed up the hooks for things such as dry-cleaning you don’t quite have time to organize yet, and put her favorite baseball cap in a small clear hat box! Lol. Also, her tulle skirt deserves to be on display, does it not? Adding small decor elements such as this flying pig and a picture makes the closet feel more like a little room than a wardrobe.

This shoe rack didn’t hold all the shoes, so we knew what we had to do…

clear shoe boxes! They’re our #1 go-to for closets. Again, we went for the mens’s size to accommodate heels.

They glide so smoothly! And everything is so visible and NEAT. It’s so NEAT!

We lightened up the closet by switching out the black huggable hangers for the cream-colored ones.

Then we went ham on the color coordination, discovering Victoria favors blue (a-ba-dee)

Before: Not horrific.

After: A dream of creams and greys.
