Beautiful Shoe Storage Idea You Could DIY

Beautiful Shoe Storage Idea You Could DIY

It took me a while to get onto the whole “pinning” bandwagon, but I’m absolutely hooked! It’s amazing how many great ideas you can find on Pinterest ! Take for example this awesome shoe storage solution made from empty wine crates! The Roomblr is responsible for this genius idea and when I saw it, I just had to share. At the moment all my shoes are stored in shoe rails in my closet room, which is great, but I still think that displaying heels on shelves shows off the full prettiness of shoe. Unfortunately I’m not much of a wine drinker, so I have no clue where to get empty crates, but hey, StyleScoop is all about sharing ideas and inspiration, so if you can get your hands on some, go for it! After seeing this Pinsperation, I found something similar that would probably work just as well (if not better) at The Homemakers Expo this weekend. Pine cubes with different designs. These could be stacked on top of, and next to each other to create a shoe library. As much as I love my closet slash dressing room, I’m getting tired of it being so “racky; so one of…

Inside my Closet… with Superficial Girls

Inside my Closet… with Superficial Girls

Spring is the perfect time to clean out and re-organize your closet! To help motivate you, we’ve asked some stylish fashionistas to take us inside their closet. This week, we’re taking you inside the closet of local fashion style blogger, Carlinn from Superficial Girls. We’re absolutely hooked on this girl’s amazing style, so we were just as excited to peek inside her closet. Take a look… Tell us a bit about your closet I used to have a whole room that I used as a closet and makeup room when I lived in Malta, but when we moved back to Cape Town space was definitely an issue, so I had to come up with some very creative ways to store my clothes, shoes and jewelry! At the moment I have all my jackets in one cupboard, dresses and shirts in another and then tees, jeans, shorts and skirts are all folded. I rotate my clothing with the seasons and I also have a clothing rail in the garage, where I keep some of things that I don’t wear that often. My shoes are all sorted by style or color and I showcase some of my more “special pairs” in the dining area…

Cute & Clever Storage

Cute & Clever Storage

I’m a little OTT when it comes to storing and organizing stuff. You’ll know this if you’ve seen my closet room, my makeup storage ideas (here and here) or how I store my bling rings so that I can find and see them. The only thing that was a little out of control, was my hair accessories. They were all over the place, and like most of you I’m sure, I was buying more and more. That was until I got this awesome little storage bag from the fab peeps over at SassDiva as a Women’s Day gift earlier in August. It was packed with all sorts of Diva goodies, including some lovely pastel nail polishes, fun coloured hair bands, retro earrings, studs, a gorgeous gold collar and some other fun things like a manicure set and girly earphones, all of which are available from SassDiva. When I saw how this cute and clever gift came packed, I thought it would be the perfect way to store my hair accessories. Take a look… It’s got loads of little zipper compartments, which makes storing and seeing your stuff awesome. Plus, it’s got a little hanger so you can hang it in your wardrobe or behind your…

Trend Report: Turning Scarves into Cute Summer Tops

Trend Report: Turning Scarves into Cute Summer Tops

In case you missed last weeks’ awesome Trend Report, here’s how you can turn your scarves into cute summer tops and expand your wardrobe for less! I don’t know about you, but I love scarves and belts! I find that they really help to inject a unique style into your outfit, setting it apart from how everyone else might be wearing it. Plus, they are generally inexpensive which means you can always be on trend. Scarves and belts have many uses. One of the ways I’ve been wearing them lately is by turning them into unique, flowy tops – perfect for summer! It’s so simple, you will be amazed at the amount of looks you can create with a cute scarf and a skinny belt. To show you how simple and easy this look is to pull off, I popped into Woolies last week where I found the cutest scarves. They always have a beautiful selection of trendy scarves and with prices so low; you can afford to be trendy! Although Woolies had a whole selection of belts and tanks to choose from, I absolutely loved this pink leather belt from Suga Suga (R120). This belt is ideal for creating…

DIY Post – How to Make Your Own Closet Room

DIY Post – How to Make Your Own Closet Room

After posting my Closet Room the other day I got so many requests from you guys asking where I got the wardrobes and how to set them up etc.  Believe it or not these babies came from Mr Price Home and at only R899 a piece. I’ve got four of them that we joined together to create my Closet Room. Here’s how you can get your own… CLOSET IN A BOX Each one of the wardrobes come in a box that you assemble yourself. It’s fairly easy to get the wardrobe up yourself, but its great if you have some help. I’m glad my hubby helped me put my wardrobes up as he came up with the idea to join the two together, making them look like a single unit. You can place the shelves wherever you want, they don’t have to be exactly as the instruction. You will however need a bottom shelf for support and one fairly close to the top to keep it supported throughout. The only thing you wont be able to to do, is if you’re going to join the wardrobes you wont be able to have all the shelves aligned in the same position.…

My Closet Room

My Closet Room

Since moving into our new place, I’ve been obsessing over a lot of new and exciting things. One of these being my all new, all fabulous and all mine CLOSET ROOM! If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably seen some of the pics and know all about my closet room ramblings, so I thought I’d share it with you now that it’s almost done. Before I get into it, I just want to say that I’m not posting this room to brag or show off what I’ve got. I just want to give my readers some ideas, as many of you are able to do this in your own home. For others, you may pick up some great tips to help organize your space and make it easier for you to find and store your clothing and accessories. I’ve been collecting my stuff for years and hold onto absolutely everything. I’m a bit of a hoarder, which can often suck, but in the case of creating a room like this, is quite a bonus. I also take really good care of my stuff, so it tends to last me quite a bit. Ok, nuff rambling, lets see the closet!…

So where do you keep your fragrances? I like to store mine in the most unlikely places in my closet room… under my hats, next to my books, with hand bags, with shoes and where ever else  a fragrance would not normally be…

Shop Your Closet…

Shop Your Closet…

Imagine having a room just for your clothes. A whole room dedicated to everything you love, out fabulously on display just like a boutique. Like most of you (I’m sure), we don’t all have a dreamy walk in closet leading off our main bedroom between our bathroom ala Carrie Bradshaw (Sex and The City). But, what some are able to do is convert a room into a closet, after all, when you really think about it, how many times does your “guest” bedroom really get used? The first time I had heard of closet rooms was from StyleScoop’s own Fearless Fashionista, Jasna. It’s been something I’ve wanted for ages, and now its finally happening! If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I’m working on my very own, very first and very exciting closet room. We’ve just bought a new house and with four bedrooms and two people, I’ve been given the freedom and green light from my hubby to “go wild” in one of the rooms – yay!!!! It was actually his suggestion – I know, I’ve trained him well haven’t I? So, stay tuned, I’ll be posting my closet room just as soon as I’ve managed to…

The Fearless Fashionista’s Closet Room Make over Part 3 Or

The Fearless Fashionista’s Closet Room Make over Part 3 Or

So here is part 3 and the last post on my closet room make over. – Jasna This is the other side of my the room where I have situated my desk and my clothing rail. I painted the desk white  and added a few personal touches to it. I love my green mouse pad and my pink mouse. I decided to move the clothing rail away from the window and put it behind the door. I hung some of my bags on the door along with my DFC cap.   I put my tripod next to the window so that I can take pics when my photographer is not around and hung more bags on the mirror stand. I put some of my shoes on top or along side my fashion books to add a quirky touch.     Some of my bags and shoes on the white shelves. There are 1 or 2 final items I must still find and then my closet room/studio/office room will be complete.
