Basics that are anything but.

Friday finds: the lowly shirt hanger

After what I'm told could possibly be one of the longest winters on record, Spring is finally springing for all of my Northern hemisphere friends & family! Yes, tomorrow  marks the first day of Spring.

Daffodils, melting snow and robins and all of that jazz are great, but I most love cleaning out my closet. Well, not actually the cleaning bit, but the thinned out wardrobe that comes afterwards.

Luckily, I'm heading to Ohio to visit my family next week so I have the most perfect excuse to get some cleaning done before my trip... sharing the pieces I love but am not wearing with my sister. It feels so good to purge my closet, not only because I am sharing with others, but it makes my remaining wardrobe much more streamlined. You know, I can actually find what I'm looking for.

If, IF I really get my ish together, I can then go back and reorganize what's remaining and that's where the fun begins (for dorks like me).

Beautiful clothes and accessories are all well and good, but if they're not being stored properly what's the point? They have to be visible so you actually remember they exist and they have to have space to breathe so they aren't ruined. Something that is especially important in a place like Singapore. Mold city.

I don't have to tell you not to use wire hangers, but my inner type A personality gets a total thrill from finding a great hanger. Of course The Container Store can be counted on to stock just about everything to put even the most OCD woman to shame. And it's there that I came across these lovely little hangers.

Simplicity is key here. What's great about them is that they're covered in a velvety finish so they're non slip, can hold trousers and the sloping ends mean no pointy shoulders. These babies are gentle enough to care for even your most delicate silk shirts and leave them without any unsightly wrinkles. Ah, it's the little things.

Now the key is just buying enough to replace the mish mash that's in my closet now.  A girl can dream.
