#ootdMonday: DIY

I have something special for you all today. This ootd is a do it yourself project and anyone can do it! This pink top came from a Forever 21 romper I had. I cut the romper in half because it was way too short for my long legs. I didn’t want to just throw my romper away so I continue to use it as a shirt.

For my bottoms I purchase them at a local thrift store. It’s that old school thick denim. I picked an oversize pair of shorts because I wanted to wear them high waisted. I didn’t like the length of the shorts originally so cuffed and hemmed the shorts. After I did that I thought the shorts looked a little plain. I decided to go to Hobby Lobby ( I love that place. Much better than Michaels.) and purchased middle size metal studs to go on the back pocket. Above you see the final results.

I hope you like this weeks #ootdMonday. Check out my blog later in the week for new posts.

A lot of clothes! Where to put them?


Are you the type of person that have so many clothes and not enough closet space? Well I’m one of those people. For the past four years I’ve been using a garment rack to help spread out clothes and create more space in my closet. Garment racks can vary in prices depending on what you’re looking for. I purchased my rack (shown above) from Bed Bath and Beyond for $19.99 but you can also find racks at Wal-Mart, Target, Amazon, and more.

Where to store a garment rack? In my old apartment I had a walk-in closet with an empty back wall and I placed it there. If you have an extra room that’s not in use you can start creating a custom closet of your own. If you have a blank wall in your room that you’re not using like I’m doing, place the rack there. By the rack being out of the closet you are more likely to see the clothes you wear more of or notice the clothes you forget about. With my rack I rotate my clothes. Those are just a few ideas.

What do you do with all of your clothes? Do you also have a garment rack or racks? Have you purchased extra storage drawers? How do you keep it organized? Comment below.
